Good morning Crispin,
The watch arrived yesterday and I’m very pleased with it. Exactly as described and depicted. Many thanks !

My watch arrived today. Delivery was delayed by one day, perhaps due to a large snowstorm on the U.S. east coast. Everything is in order. I am very pleased with all aspects of this transaction. Your service and communications were excellent. Packing was excellent. I am very pleased with the watch.
Thank you for your flexibility in accommodating my request to use an alternate shipping company. Based on my experience and my location, FedEx is superior.
I hope to have the opportunity to conduct business with you in the future, although my next purchase may be a carriage clock. Thank you for sourcing and preserving vintage timepieces.

The watch arrived today and I could not wait to open it. Often things ordered on line do not look as good as when viewed but I was delighted to find the watch could not have been better it looks just as described and after wearing it for half a day is keeping good time. I am looking forward to wearing it often. Thanking you for all your work in getting it to me. Happy New Year!
Very happy to confirm safe receipt. It looks excellent. Many thanks for your speedy service.
The watch and paperwork arrived with today's post.
I'm quite chuffed with the watch. It looks so fresh for a 1920s watch.
I've been wearing the watch more or less non stop since last Wednesday...
(Asprey watch, France)
The item from you arrived today to me.
Thank you for a wonderful watch.
I am very satisfied.
Let's meet again next time.
(Rolex watch, Japan)
The watch has arrived safely, thank you.
It is better than I expected, a beautiful item. It appears to be rather small compared to the contemporary mens watches but this makes it even more extraordinary.
Thank you also for the separate information letter that you have sent. I am very happy that I have come to the best place possible to buy a piece of watch-making history.
(Longines watch, Switzerland)
Thank you so much for letting us visit today. It has been so lovely and interesting to meet both of you.
My husband is thrilled by his Oyster and is absolutely happy with it. It is such a beautiful timepiece.
Thank you also for having sent the 'receipt'.
We will certainly look at your website from time to time or be in touch one way or the other. Please let us know if you have
anything that might be of interest to my husband (or myself ;-).
All best to you both and thanks again for the meeting.
(Rolex Oyster watch, Switzerland)
I'm glad to let you know that the watch has arrived sound and safe. It is very elegant and in excellent working condition.
Thank you very much for your great work.

Olde Timers Watches is the only watch shop you should consider in buying a vintage wristwatch. This watch is my third.
Firstly, warm kudos must go out to Owner Crispin and his Partner/Associate Sam. I recommend you give them a ring. Crispin’s and Sam’s warm and welcoming manner will, without a doubt, lure you to buy their magnificent watches.
Second, Crispin’s excellently written short histories of some of the watch brands he sells, namely the introduction of the Rolex Oyster in 1926.
Third – last but not least – is the extreme care that is shown in his and/or Sam’s packing his watches for shipment.
I thank you both.
(Asprey Watch, USA)
The omega arrived this morning safe and sound.Cannot really express how pleased I am with it the work you put into your time pieces and their presentation is outstanding.Hard to believe this watch is getting on for eighty years old.
Many thanks for how the purchase was conducted from initial email enquiry to sale and final delivery I felt fully supported at every stage
The watch winds smoothly and makes a wonderful sound
A really nice flavour of the Art Deco period.
Well that's the good news
I will probably be back again in the not to distant future
Much to the detriment to my bank balance
the dismay of my bank manager
But more importantly my wife.
I am very pleased with it, it is such a beautiful watch and looks in even better condition than in the web picture, in fact it looks brand new. The quality is superb. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent and friendly service and look forward to dealing with you in the future and will certainly recommend you to other people. Many Thanks.
The watch has arrived and looks fabulous, even better in person. Thank you for your attentive service, you have all been brilliant. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a vintage watch.
As discussed earlier today, the watch arrived this morning.
When something like this arrives and then you open it up, you can always tell from your own reaction as to whether or not it really 'hits the spot'. This did!
I would like to thank you for a very thoughtful and professional service. I immediately warmed to the friendly service on the day that I called you on the telephone.
The watch is really attractive with a most wonderful guilloche face and in superb condition.
I hope to repeat the experience in the future. For now, many thanks to you both for such a good experience.
Watch collected at my father's place. Exceeds expectations! Thank you very much for perfect service.
Thank you again.
(Rolex watch, Belgium)
I received the watch and was blown away, I could not be more satisfied with my purchase. The customer care has been outstanding, the watch is everything and more than I expected and the packaging reflects the care and attention you pay to your products. Thank you, I have and will continue to recommend you as a specialist supplier.
How would I describe your timepiece?
Most elegant, an "eye catcher, " most handsome, and pristine would most accurately describe it. I am so ecstatic! I put on your watch as quickly as I could.
You packed the watch tightly and securely.
What more can I ask?
In the future, I have made up my mind and will only buy watches from you.
You are a real professional, most timely, most accommodating, and honest, and a delight to transact business with.
I've already recommended you to two professionals here in the U.S. and will continue to do so, as people WILL ask me who and where I purchased the watch from.
Forget about the thirty-one vintage watches that I once owned.
This timepiece will continue to draw much attention.
Thank you for making my buying experience a smooth and pleasurable one.
(Asprey watch, USA)

I thought you would like to know that the vintage 14 carat LeCoultre watch I purchased from you arrived a few days ago. I was impressed with the way it was packed and the beautifully presentation box it arrived in. The watch looks even more attractive than it did in the photos....a satisfied customer indeed.
Perhaps, when I am in England during the summer, I might try and come down to your showroom to see your stock. Meanwhile, I better start saving!
