Bruce's Vintage Watches

This page is where you find all the watches I have sold since the beginning of this website in 2013. This page automatically updates whenever a watch is sold, so the watches are listed chronologically, from most recent watch sold to the earliest watches sold. If you can't find a certain watch in the store that I've just announced, it's probably because somebody beat you to it, and you'll find it here.

Unlike my competitors, I leave the prices on the watches so you can see what they bought and to see how I stack up against my competition on prices. You can even perform a little market research to see what your own watches are worth. I hope you find this latest function of my website useful!

Benrus automatic new old stock with boxes
As most of you know, I don't normally mess with Benrus, but in a moment of weakness I bought this new old stock automatic Benrus for $100 just because it looks so damned beautiful and it it's new old stock with original half-n-half bracelet band, and double boxes. With those big luscious lugs, the watch is a full 44mm long tip to tip, and 33mm…More details

Bulova 1930s Conquerer near mint with box
This is not your average Bulova watch ... not by a long shot. It is from the early 1930s. It is in near mint condition, and the only reason I don't say "mint" is because I had to do a bit of restoration work on it, specifically the dial refinishing because the luminous was simply too far gone. I also had to replace the crown, and put a NOS…More details

Hamilton Heyward
When you get into watches from the 1930s, it's awfully difficult to find them in nice condition. They've usually been worn every day and worn to death, into the 1950s and even '60s until the original owner finally relents and relegates the watch to the dresser drawer or the trash. That's why I'm particularly happy to present this "Heyward" model,…More details
