"Purchasing vintage watches can be a risky and difficult undertaking. Fortunately, my experience with C.O.T has completely removed the guesswork, uncertainty, and worry from the process.

Their extensive inventory of beautiful, quality time pieces is matched only by their unparalleled customer service.

Dealing with C.O.T has been a true pleasure, from the meticulous care of their packaging department and the expertise of their watchmakers, to their personable President, Mr. Hoyt, who is always available to respond to questions and concerns.

If you are a vintage watch enthusiast, you will discover a trustworthy friend in C.O.T.
