Good evening! i am looking to purchasing a good basic WWII era ladies watch - an everyday watch. Yes, there are tons of watches on ebay but i was hoping someone could share the name of a good vendor. I want one that is running, serviced, etc. Ready to roll. not too expensive, no diamonds, etc.

Anyone know a good vintage watch vendor for a newbie buyer?

Thanks!

Try Decowatches on ebay.

Has a huge inventory, great to work with and not horridly expensive.

We bought our family's three vintage watches and a vintage pocket watch from this seller. Great to do business with. He has lots of amazingly detailed pics and info of each timepiece on the auctions.

If you are in No. Maryland and care to take a ride into Philadelphia try:
Raykin Watch Repair

Philadelphia, PA 19107

Great stock last time I stopped by. Good Dim Sum down the block at Ocean City 9th and Vine.

Correct form is "Don't snipe me, bro!"

I won't snipe ya as we've each got a vintage watch- so we're good. Btw, here's an evilBay tip I was given- don't bid early in the game, it only helps to drive the price up. And ooh, how I do love esnipe!:D
