  • Karolina P.

    "So happy with my purchase. The seller is very responsive and was able to answer my questions about the watch. The wealth of knowledge he has about vintage watches made me feel safe purchasing a piece from this store. Will definitely return for more watches in the future."

    "Watch was exactly as advertised. I'm really happy with the purchase! My order was delayed due to snowstorms, and Lee was extremely communicative throughout the waiting period. If another watch I want comes along, I'll be sure to purchase from Lee again."
