section about preowned watches

Our Curated Vintage Selection

The vast majority of the watches in our pre-owned inventory were sold to us from original owners rather than things we found online or at trade shows from unreliable sources. The importance of this is that these watches are less likely to be over restored and more likely to be quite original, unlike many of the, “Franken-Watches,” being offered elsewhere.

We are always getting new inventory

Repairs, Restorations and other Services

Watchworks is known for their expert repair department largely due to the skill of their head watchmaker Paul Manney who has been an essential part of the team for over 26 years. Paul trained at Wostep (Watchmakers of Switzerland Extension Program), both in the USA and in Switzerland. Paul’s expertise combined with literally millions of rare watch parts gathered through the years allows restoration of timepieces others would think are un-repairable.

Our goal is to offer expert advice and repair services regardless of what serves our business model – meaning we will try to dissuade clients from chasing projects that likely will offer continuous difficulties or are poor economic models with regard to restoration costs.

With regard to jewelry design and repair, our GIA Graduate Gemeologist, Goldsmith, and Platinumsmith, Carter Dye, can assist with any minor or complex project ranging from simple repairs & resizing, to design and fabrication of one of a kind works of jewelry excellence

Our History & Passion

We are advocates of candor. Straight and simple speech and transparent transactions keep both parties from potential disappointments.

Our goal is to underpromise and over deliver. We need every client to be able to refer a friend confidently, knowing that we will serve them to the best of our ability.

Watchworks employs no salespersons. We prefer to think of ourselves as enthusiasts and educators, who explain the nuances and history of the objects and why we sought them out in the first place. It’s up to the client to decide if they agree with our recommendations to make a buying decision.
