Thank you for your interest in our listings and auctions. We prefer all payments by Paypal. We just ask that you please pay for your item/s within 72 hours after the end of the auction. This also includes all "Local Pick-up Only" and "store" purchases.
We are always interested in purchasing larger clock or watchmaker estates at a better price than you can get by selling at a garage sale or auction. This also includes parts, tools, watchbands pieces, and movements. We buy larger lots of other collectibles including high quality cameras, military items, stanley planes, and quality liquidation items.
If for some reason you are not happy with your purchase, please contact us immediately before leaving negative feedback. eBay encourages all buyers to try and work things out with the seller before leaving negative or even neutral feedback, therefore we ask that you please give us the opportunity to work with you on whatever the problem might be. We strive to get 5 star ratings in every category, but if we fall short please contact us before leaving your rating so that we may be able to resolve the situation. This is why we have a 100% return policy if you are not satisfied with your purchase!

For Canadian/International Orders:
Although we ship worldwide, please note that items being shipped outside of the US are subject to customs inspection and the assessment of duties and taxes in accordance to the national laws of the country being shipped to. We will mark all of our customs forms at the amount you paid for it (excluding shipping). We will not mark items as a "gift" or falsify the customs form in any way. These charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges that were paid to us. It is the buyer's responsibility for all additional expenses incurred. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to your bidding and buying.
Please take a look at all the photos for condition and check out our other store listings!
The last numbers or letters in the listing heading are for inventory purposes only and do not have anything to do with the listed item itself.
Thanks for looking at this week's listed items. We are always adding more vintage clocks, watches and related items every week as we find them. Everything we have is listed, so we do not have "other" parts in storage. If you like what you see, please put us in your "Saved Sellers" list and check back with us often. We offer reduced shipping costs whenever we can and will combine orders if we can save you money on postage. Feel free to message us any questions.
All watches and clocks and store items are checked at the time of listing to create an accurate listing and then rechecked just before shipping to confirm that there have been no changes. The post office can be unkind to vintage timepieces, or almost anything, during shipment if not packaged extremely well. Because of this, we package items better than necessary to insure a positive experience for all of us. The condition of our items sent are all documented with photos prior to shipment for insurance purposes. All international shipments must be registered and insured and all customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
I remember as a kid being dragged into my great uncle George Gooseman's clock museum in Colorado Springs under the watchful eye of the grand Pike's Peak Mountain. His building was just off 24 Highway in an out of place blue and white striped metal building. It was close to the flourishing, but now gone, Van Briggle's pottery shop and the "Ghost town" tourist spot. Upon entering the doors, the strange blending aroma of older wood and mechanical parts greeted the nostrils in the same manner as the methodical ticking greeted the ears. As one would walk down the hallway to the main open room, the heartbeat of the building grew more intense. Upon turning the last corner of the walkway to finally meet the source of the sound, the sight was incredible with motion and movement as hundreds of clocks were still telling their story of an era quickly passing in time.... It was that love of the creativity and ingenuity of our American inventors and their products that got me started in collecting and sharing antiques, vintage watches, and marvelous clocks. We are now hoping to share that excitement with you, as you would not be looking at this page unless you had some of those same interests. We are not Clocksmiths or Watchsmiths by trade, so we don't do any repairs or shopwork for people, but we hope that we can unite you with that special item you have been looking for or find that part you have been hunting. We list everything we have at the time and do not have "extra" parts in storage. So check back often if you are looking for something because we are adding additional items to our store almost every week.........John
