International Vintage Watch Company specializes in buying classic, elegant timepieces in various conditions and meticulously breathing new life into their functions before making them available on our web store. We work with vintage Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, IWC, Seiko, and Longines amongst other luxury brands in our efforts to preserve preowned pieces of working history.

As jewelry and watch experts, each of our team members has over 25 years experience working with some of the finest products, and even collecting some of our own favorite vintage watches. We understand that classic quality was made to last for generations, so we turn that intention into a reality for other collectors and first time buyers alike.

Buying a brand new watch is simple: go to a store or go online and you can be confident you are receiving a beautiful product in working order.

Finding an authenticated, collectible watch online is a little more time-consuming...

The U.S. is the only country with strict guidelines protecting the resale of name brands, so we’re the only collector’s market that can be trusted for sourcing premium products.

And unlike new watches, there are no fixed prices for how much a vintage watch can sell. The value of a classic timepiece only accumulates over time.

Lastly, vintage watches are by definition pre-owned, so some have experienced more wear and tear than others. Some are damaged or in poor condition. Not to mention the flood of fake products on the market.

That’s where we come in.

Our operation is integral in the search for a classic watch. We work exclusively with authenticated vintage products from the most sought after names in the industry.

We used to provide our service to wholesalers, but now we’re offering our time and professional care directly to consumers at competitive prices.

Our online store provides collectors, first-time buyers, and those in search of the perfect gift and elegant service. We use precision in checking and servicing authentic vintage timepieces for the convenience of our customers.

The bracelets and crystal have to shine, and the hand movement needs to be as graceful as it was when it first began ticking.

Our experienced team of jewelers and watch enthusiasts can make that happen.

In the past, people have had to rely on brick and mortar operations for their purchases.

Now, the internet has expanded the watch market into an international trading space where billions of people can search and purchase classic timepieces every day.

We stand out because we find and restore the finest brands to working order from cleaning to perfecting the original movement. Then, we professionally photograph each timepiece in order for our buyers to truly understand the craftsmanship they will be viewing in person.

Our team members each have over 25 years of experience in the jewelry industry. Paired with our own appreciation for classic, quality watches, our operation is a labor of love.

(Disclaimer: IVWC is not an authorized retailer for the aforementioned brands, but sells pre-owned timepieces in a free market.)



Our excellent selection of premium products is already a source of pride for us, but we believe, with a growth in our inventory, and by refining our website, we can expand our reach and popularity exponentially.


We currently have over 1200 collector’s items in our inventory all fully serviced by our team of professionals including 100 Rolexes. 


Whether first time buyers or seasoned collectors, there is a reason ⅓ of our customers buy multiple pieces or come back for more. 50% of our sales are international placing us in the position to compete with other trusted, American watch dealers in the global market.


Soon our products will come available through e-commerce such as Google Shopping, Yahoo Shopping, Amazon, Walmart.com, Jet.com, Buy.com, and Rakuten.

We’re capitalizing on the most successful and recognized brands in the world who already have their own multi-billion dollar marketing campaigns. Because our vintage timepieces accumulate value over time, our profit margins are healthy and ready for growth.

IVWC is dedicated to quality craftsmanship at the core of our team efforts to collect and restore vintage watches to their original beauty. This is a passion manifested through long careers in the watch and jewelry industry.
