Vintage watch dealers

Post by nburgess » Tue Jan 21, 2020 8:34 am

Hi one and all,

I'm looking into getting a birth year watch (1975).
Wanting an Omega and currently looking at a Geneve or possibly a Seamaster. Although if the right watch came up, I would consider other makes.
I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend a UK (or trusted international) seller ?
Had a look on the likes of Chrono24, but wondering where else I could try as a lot of them seem to be non UK sellers.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Neil

I was also looking for a birth year watch, albeit much older than yours!
There is a guy called Kabaclyde on Reddit and Instagram who always has a good range of vintage Omegas for sale. Give him a try

I recalled seeing a website called Birth Year Watches in the past, and a quick google and my memory serves me well. They are based in England. They also have a very good Trustpilot rating.

Maybe worth a look?

Many thanks Gents.
I did actually have a quick look at birthyearwatches.com a little earlier, and although they had nothing which both took my fancy and was within my modest budget, I will keep checking them.
As for Kabaclyde - he certainly has some interesting pieces! Again, I'll be sure to keep an eye on his stock.
