I am passionate about watches.  My friends tell me that I never met a watch I did not like.  Well, the reality of today’s marketplace in fine timepieces is that it is very difficult to satisfy one’s passion.  No one dealer offers a thorough and meaningful selection, and it is increasingly challenging in any one city outside of Switzerland.

Many economic and marketing issues make it nearly impossible for dealers to flourish within the global watch industry, which makes it a shopping dilemma for clients looking for that special timepiece.

“I think that telling time with a fine timepiece is much more interesting than with a cell phone.”

– Kim Alan Smith, Jeweler

Introducing the Watch Brokerage at K. Alan Smith

This is the answer.  We assist clients in the review of various watch brands, via the web, to ascertain a general direction of brand and style. With my 48 years of expertise in the jewelry and watch industry, I have the all-important connections (alongside my passion) to procure nearly any watch imaginable.

We source Brand New watches, with box and papers, as well as what I like to call ‘virtually new’, previously-loved timepieces, usually accompanied by box and papers. The new watches are obtained at prices reduced off list with warranties in placed. The watches I source in the secondary market have been well cared for and will demonstrate phenomenal pricing.  

I encourage you to roam the internet to see what interests you and then give me a call or send me an email. We can discuss the differing types of mechanisms in watches with all the various watches of complication involved and determine the brand and style of watch that meets the criteria for you. The exploration will be great fun!

Some of the watch brands I have brokered:

Lange & Sohne, Audemars Piguet, Bell & Ross, Breguet, Cartier, Ebel, FP Journe, Glashutte, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Omega, Panerai, Patek Philippe, Richard Mille, Roger Dubuis, Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Vacheron Constantin.

I am also an active BUYER of fine timepieces—vintage or contemporary!  I am receptive to the purchase of a single watch or entire collections. Maybe it is time to consolidate your watch wardrobe, freshen it up, so you can replenish.  

Well, I am here to help, when the time is right. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
