Searching for your first vintage watch is an adventure in itself. Finding exactly what you are looking for takes patience. If you don't see the watch of your dreams right away, wait it out a bit and revisit the same stores when inventory changes, or find a dealer who can hunt for exactly what you are looking for. To help you begin your hunt and avoid scammers, we've compiled a list of ten trustworthy dealers around the world from Miami to London.


If you find yourself needing to expand your search or think you might enjoy the thrill of scoring a deal on a vintage watch, you might want to take the auction house route. Keep in mind Antiquorum Auctioneers, Patrizzi & Co. Geneva and Sotheby's, which are known for their vintage watch auctions. Just be prepared to bid against obsessive collectors.
