We make sure our watches perform well for you by carefully inspecting, timing and regulating, and warrantying each one. In addition nearly all we service. Some we sympathetically restore.
Who we are:
One of the most important pieces of advice often given to new collectors is "Buy the seller before you buy the watch."
With that in mind, the best way to learn a little more about us is to look over these current unedited reviews. We maintain a 100% positive rating and perfect 5.0 star rating with over 2,500 reviews.
Or take a
moment to read this unsolicited testimonial:
"Purchasing vintage watches can be a risky and difficult
undertaking. Fortunately, my experience with C.O.T has completely
removed the guesswork, uncertainty, and worry from the process.
Their extensive inventory of beautiful, quality time pieces is
matched only by their unparalleled customer service.
Dealing with C.O.T has been a true pleasure, from the meticulous
care of their packaging department and the expertise of their
watchmakers, to their personable President, Mr. Hoyt, who is always
available to respond to questions and concerns.
If you are a vintage watch enthusiast, you will discover a trustworthy
friend in C.O.T.
