You Won’t See These Tickers Anywhere Else

A Pendant Watch fit for royalty. Queen Victoria bought a Patek Philippe similar in style to this watch in 1851. This blue enamel and diamond-set pendant watch is a functional objet that brings a little bit of the 19th century to the 21st century.

Shopping for a vintage or estate watch is much like treasure hunting: it involves a little bit of luck and lot of being at the right place at the right time. When you look inside the Betteridge Estate and Vintage Watch case, we make the job a little bit easier for you by putting all our favorite discoveries in one place for you to explore. You never know what you will find, and the value of buying a vintage or pre-owned watch cannot be matched.

As I travel the world looking for the rarest and most exciting timepieces ever made, my goal is to share the same sense of discovery and excitement with you that I feel when finding a uniqye watch. But be warned: the more you learn about watches, the more addicted you will become to the idea of owning a collection yourself! Just take a look at the collectors hovering around our vintage and estate watch case the next time you are in the Greenwich store, and you will understand… When you look inside this wall case, you will be treated to a revolving museum of timepieces ranging from the 1850s to watches made in the 21st century. I emphasize ‘revolving’ because many pieces only sit in the case for a few hours before finding a new home!
