VintageTimeWatches – Why Us
If you’ve read the About page, you’ll know that vintage watches are so much more than business to us; first and foremost, it’s a passion that we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to follow, which is perhaps why we look after the VintageTimeWatches customers as we do – because we’re genuinely grateful to them for giving us the opportunity to do this.
When it comes to our products, we try to consider what a potential purchaser may think of; we’ll only ever use honest and accurate descriptions of the watch, we try to keep ‘flowery’ language or marketing schmooze to a minimum – describing something like “This beautiful wrist instrument has clearly undergone a transformation, like a chrysalis to butterfly with the fitting of an unsullied hide strap” isn’t our way – “This watch has a had a new leather strap fitted, which has changed the appearance for the better” is much more our style, and we believe that you appreciate that.
As you may expect and appreciate, we’re dealing with products that by their very nature have some age to them, so we can’t guarantee that you’ll never have a problem, but what we can guarantee is that you’ll be dealt with politely, courteously and in a manner that we’d want to be treated if the shoe was on the other foot. We also guarantee to try and resolve any problems in the most amicable way for both parties – a business is nothing without customers.
All watches are tested and inspected before being sent out; we do our utmost to deliver you a first-class product, but we don’t hand-deliver them (wouldn’t it be great if we could). If for any reason your package arrives damaged, we will, of course, take issue with the courier, but please rest assured that it didn’t leave here damaged.
Hopefully, you’ll find the answer to any other questions in the ‘What We Offer’ section, but please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further help or clarification – we want to give you the best service that we can, part of that is being available for questions and help, which we gladly do.
What we offer:
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
A full 30-day return policy if you’re not entirely satisfied or happy with your purchase. For full details, please read the Returns Policy.
Free Shipping on Qualifying Orders
We offer free (tracked) shipping on most orders, with some minor exceptions. We can also offer express shipping options. For full details, see our Delivery Policy page.
All orders are shipped within one working day on receipt of payment. UK orders typically arrive next working day, international orders typically take between five to ten working days to arrive. We cannot guarantee arrival dates, only shipping dates. For full details, see the Delivery Policy page.
Wide Range of Brands
While we like to carry stock of the more well-known luxury vintage watch brands, we aren’t limited to them; we hold stock and regularly sell a variety of brands, from Tissot to Tag, Accurist to Omega and everything in-between – the qualifier is ‘vintage’.
All Watches Shipped from the UK
All our watches are in stock on-site in London, we do not ship any watches via other locations, or drop ship from suppliers. This gives you the peace of mind that any product you order is in stock and shipped securely.
Without customers, we have no business. We appreciate that we have some competition, and although our pricing strategy helps us, we believe that the key to building long-lasting relationships is just that – working to build a relationship, rather than making a one-off sale.

Top-Rated Online Seller
We are one of the very few businesses that have achieved a 100% positive feedback rating on eBay. We’re a ‘Top Rated’ seller and have worked hard to achieve that status – feel free to browse our eBay store and read our reviews, or indeed, purchase through the platform.
Established in 2009
We have just celebrated our tenth anniversary! (VintageTimeWatches has been trading since 2009). As the business grows, so does our list of contacts and suppliers, which means we can offer a greater range of vintage timepieces, at even better prices.
Secure Online Ordering with Stripe and PayPal
Lastly, and most importantly, we choose to provide PayPal. PayPal protects both buyers and sellers in an online market, so the risk is minimal for both parties and buyers can purchase products with the confidence that if the item never arrives, PayPal has them covered.
