    Hello All,

    I am traveling to Bristol and London England and wondering if anyone could recommend any watch shops or dealers in vintage watches? Any advice appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Best-DON

    Do a site search. There's a thread on vintage shops in London.

    You'll struggle to find bargains in London. There's the shops in the Burlington Arcade, plus portabello market, but even the crap tends to be expensive.

    There's several antique centres in Bristol, which may have the odd piece here and there. Most will be in poor-average condition, but you may find the odd diamond in the rough.

    I would try the Antique Watch Company in Clerkenwell London - they have done some good servicing work for me and are always willing to strike a deal on pricing

    (But the web site isn't always up to date)

    Also Austin Kaye on the Strand London specialises in used watches and has a good Omega stock although a little pricey:

    Also some of the dealers at Greys Antiques Market off Bond St are relatively reasonable given the location - I picked up an Omega Apollo 11 LE for £2k from there... and of course Portobello Rd and some of the shops around Hatton Garden
