We formed Pocketwatcher in 1998. Before that we were interested in antique timepieces and had started researching and collecting. Rex, our experienced watchmaker, had studied watchmaking and watch repair for several years, and began to collect and repair antique American pocket watches. I created our first web page that year and we started buying and selling on eBay, buying at watch shows and hitting the flea markets looking for pocket watches and chains.
These days we mainly buy collections from collectors and estates, restore the good watches, and offer them on our website. Rex has trained and mentored several up and coming watchmakers and usually has a protege hanging around the shop overlooking the Elkhorn Sanctuary and Monterey Bay. Expertise is the key to our quality pocket watches.
