Hello!  I am THE Watch Guy.  If you are looking for Vintage Wrist and Pocket Watch Information, including how-to repair, company history of, collecting info, watch supplies, watch restoration services, repair shop info, refurbishing tips, and recommended books and tools... Then let me welcome you to "The Watch Guy" website.  
 
Here you will find an ever growing resource database of all kinds of watch collecting information - the history of different watch companies, repairing and oiling information,  pictures, and useful links.  
 
I've been collecting and repairing watches for many years.  During that time I have put in thousands of hours learning everything I possibly could about the subject.  Early on I realized that finding information, reference material and supplies was difficult and time consuming.  I mean, it's out there to be found... it's just scattered... Assuming you are probably searching for the same things I was searching for, I decided to start this site, and compile that information in one place to share my knowledge with others.
 
I am an avid collector of vintage timepieces.  I primarily collect mint vintage (gold) wristwatches. I am also into repair, which is something that is pretty easy to learn, but takes years to get really good at. 
 
I really hope you enjoy my site!   HAVE FUN!

Watch collecting and repairing is really fun.

Watch repair is becoming a dying profession.  So much expertise and knowledge is being lost every year as older members of the profession are preparing for retirement. I would encourage anyone interested in this field to pursue it...
