Every Moment is a Memory

Dedicated to Customer Service


We bring the same customer service and dedication to all of our customers, regardless of the watch in question. 


DCVW don't have a cute name with an ampersand in between - we concentrate on what is important, namely, finding amazing vintage watches and providing great service to our customers.


Unlike some others businesses, we don't look down on "lower end" Swiss and non-Swiss watches, or beginners to vintage watch collecting - we encourage all to be involved in the amazing pursuit that is vintage affordable horology. 


We want this amazing passion to continue, so reach out to us with questions, even if not in regards to our watches - we are at your service.

DC Vintage Watches has great respect for classic mechanical movement timepieces - usually originating from the vintage and retro eras, spanning from the 1950's to 1990's - for the care taken during this period by Swiss, American, and Japanese watchmakers to ensure the owner had a keepsake worthy of lasting decades (and longer), all at an affordable price.  We strive to bring these beautiful and interesting watches, the type people will undoubtedly notice on your wrist, to our discerning customers.  

Each one of the vintage watches we curate has its own unique story, which we do our best to track down for our customers - doing the research to find these stories is half the thrill of the vintage watch hunt, and we do it well. 


Browse our curated selection of exceptional vintage watches and prepare to be part of the next chapter of our watches! Perfect for novice and veteran collectors alike, this curated collection speaks to what we all look for in a vintage timepiece - history, craftsmanship, and the allure of the uncommon. Just keep in mind that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have great style.

We are a family-run business, with decades of experience, and we can assure our customers that you won't find anything boring here at DCVW - just our unique selection of curated vintage wristwatches. We have a presence on both the east (Washington, DC) and west (Los Angeles) coasts, which allows us to immediately answer any questions about our watches for sale or your order - email us!

But don't take our word for it - our clients can provide more.  Witnessing the clear delight on a client's face when they open up their package and get their grail watch, in this instance an all original 1970s Seiko 6139 Pogue, makes our work worthwhile. The above gentleman's girlfriend reached out to us before the holidays one year - unbeknownst to him - and informed us she wanted to purchase the very same Pogue he had asked us to source.  She also asked us to string him along regarding time line (we did), so he would be surprised when he unwrapped his present Christmas day (he was!).  All so she could get him an amazing Christmas present that he will remember for years to come - and adding another unique chapter to the history of the watch.
