Welcome and thanks for visiting my vintage watches, military watches and marine chronometers web site! Please be sure to add this vintage timepieces site to your “bookmarks”.
I am an active member of the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors (NAWCC) since 1988 and the Society for Military Horologists. Some of my watches and bands appeared in movies such as Hart’s War with Bruce Willis and Saving Private Ryan with Tom Hanks.
We established the Windy City Watch Collector in Chicago, IL, USA in 1996 with the goal of providing products to fellow watch and clock collectors worldwide.
In 2003, we opened an office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands along a canal near the Central Train Station. Here is a link to our travel blog in Europe.
Since 2012, we are once again in the US….this time in the college town of Oberlin, OH.
Quality: I strive to accurately grade all pieces and to describe any detracting features that would concern me as a collector. There is a five day “no questions asked” return privilege on all pieces.
Visit my site regularly as I will try to have new items of interest on a consistent basis. If you’d like to receive advance notice of new products as well as horology newsletters, please email me and I’ll add you to my mailing list.
