I've heard a lot of great reviews about DavidSW, my friend also got his Daytona black dial from them with a good deal. I'm sure you can find a lot of information and reviews on the forum about DavidSW. They have a brick and mortar store in Orlando

Tony Geha-Justrolexes has a website www.sdwatches.com.
I’ve purchased 3 out of 4 Rolexes from him. He is a great guy. No worries at all dealing with him.

Capetown Diamond has a large selection at very good prices - I have bought several from them.

DavidSW is in orlando and easy to deal with. Bernard watch in Austin has a good reputation. I have bought watches from Wingates which is also in TX (tic-tock.com) and they were great. Same with Tarrytown Jewelers.

I just bought from Takuya — you are fortunate to be in the same state. No way you could go wrong with doing Slovak transaction with him.

Avoid Capetown Diamond at all costs. Super shady. If you want a no-regrets experience just go with DavidSW even if his pricing is above others (obviously negotiate).

London based here.

Read loads on her about DavidSW (u.s based I believe)

All I would say is they aren't cheap. But you often pay more for reputation.

Eric Wind of Wind Vintage in Palm Beach, FL. is internationally known.
He has been featured on Hodinkee.

One of the best in the vintage world. Have purchased a rare Submariner
from him.

Justrolex ( Tony ) in San Diego.

DavidSW ( David ) in Orlando.

SohAIS ( Aamir ) in Atlanta.

Have done business with the above.

Takuya I have not but he is in Texas and he is a trusted seller.

I have had two great transactions with Bernard Watch Company in Austin. The first was in the late nineties when they were in Dallas, and more recently (2020) after they moved to Austin.

Great Experience with Natshville Watch

I just had a fantastic experience with Nashville Watch. I recently purchased a 126710BLNR, and I traded in several watches to complete the transaction. Tim and the team were very fair with their trade-in offer and completed the transaction seemlessly. I would highly recommend them.
