Why Watch Collector?
At the Watch Collector Company we have a different approach. Think of us as a fraternity that care and cater to you and your watch at the highest possible level. From the best expert re-finishing in Australia to our superior customer service, we offer a unique experience in every way.
We Take The Time.
We operate by-appointment only. This allows us to create an informative and comfortable buying environment for our clients. We try to allocate as much time as possible to answer any questions you may have and to compare different models that we have on offer. With no rush, expectation or pressure, and the coffee’s on us, too!
By not having a store front, we can focus our attention on our clients without any distractions. What we save by not using a conventional store front model allows our marketing budget to be significantly higher. This allows us to competitively operate nationally. Our expert photography ensures accurately depicted watches that make buyers outside of our reach very comfortable when buying interstate. All these factors result in personal and professional service that ensures highest prices paid when selling, fast results for consignment clients and a longterm relationship with our valued customers.
