Our Story

We experienced the problems and decided to offer an alternative.

Our Story | Time Rediscovered

A market needing to evolve.

If you've spent any time at all around the vintage & pre-owned watch market, you know the type of experience offered. Inflated prices, unhelpful and pushy salespeople. Shady practices.

We saw this firsthand when we began buying and selling watches. An industry stuck in the past, rooted in outdated models and with attitudes from an era that no longer exists. 

Being a believer in the modern way of doing business, upfront, transparent and focused on providing value, instead of just trying to make a buck, we knew there was a better way.

Because we believe, when you focus on the experience, when you use technology to make the process more efficient and when you build relationships instead of transactions, you create a new way of doing business.

Buying and selling watches with Time Rediscovered should feel like working with an old friend. If we accomplish that, we've done our job.

This is our story.
