Websites and Online Tools for Vintage Collectors


Post by FTE » Tue Apr 30, 2019 10:28 am

Starting this thread for members to share online resources for the vintage collector, excluding purchase sites (saving those for another thread). All resources related to determining watch history, researching potential purchases, movement identification, dating, finding repair parts, etc. Below are the ones I have found most useful (visible only to members). Please feel free to share your own.

Great idea and thanks for putting this all in one place! I'm not really a vintage collector but part of the reason is that I'm too intimidated. Some of the resources here could definitely help. I sometimes think about picking up a vintage King Seiko but then I usually remind myself that I know nothing about them so I'll likely pay too much and get a poor example. I found a guide from Fratello Magazine that could maybe help me or others. I know your not exactly a Seiko fan @FTE, but it's ok, we love you anyway. :lol:
