For the love of watches.

Our clients are people like you who enjoy or are first exploring the world of classic and fine watches. We are privileged to include among our customers leaders of industry, entertainment, government, law, medicine, and museum curators.
Each of our watches we carefully inspect, time and regulate, and warranty. Nearly all we service. Some we sympathetically restore.

Who we are:
One of the most important pieces of advice often given to new collectors is "Buy the seller before you buy the watch."
With that in mind, the best way to learn a little more about us is to look over these current unedited reviews. We maintain a 100% positive rating and perfect 5.0 star rating with over 2,150 reviews. Or take a moment to read this unsolicited testimonial:
"Purchasing vintage watches can be a risky and difficult undertaking. Fortunately, my experience with C.O.T has completely removed the guesswork, uncertainty, and worry from the process.
Their extensive inventory of beautiful, quality time pieces is matched only by their unparalleled customer service.
Dealing with C.O.T has been a true pleasure, from the meticulous care of their packaging department and the expertise of their watchmakers, to their personable President, Mr. Hoyt, who is always available to respond to questions and concerns.
If you are a vintage watch enthusiast, you will discover a trustworthy friend in C.O.T.
