The estimate we provide will be based on the information you have provided, our experience and similar items we have sold or items that we are aware of which were sold on other sites, auction ect.
Watch prices can vary greatly, asking prices are not always realized and in some case items may sell well above or below the estimated value. Our estimate is not an offer to buy or sell, only an opinion as to it’s value in the open market.
Prices on our website are shown is US$ and in Cad$. US customers please use the payment button with US flag, international customers, including Briton, Europe, Asia and Australia please use payment button with European Union flag to allow correct shipping charge to be applied. We know that our Canadian customers prefer to pay in Canadian $ and unlike other watch websites we have for many years made that payment option available (Pay Now button with Canadian flag). We periodically adjust our exchange rate, as of April 1, 2015 the new preferred rate that we will be using for Canadian buyers is 1.18%.
Please contact us if the payment button for your location is not present on the listing page of item you wish to purchase.
Items marked Status: SALE! IN Red

For customers in Europe, UK, other international locations our normal low fixed shipping amount is subsidized by us. Some destinations however are more expensive to ship to or require a different service such as FedEx.
As a general rule if our actual shipping cost is more than $20 greater than our fixed shipping charge, we will bill the customer for the difference, if less we will absorb the cost. If you make a purchase using the payment buttons, additional shipping will be billed before package is shipped.
Please contact us if you have any questions or require a shipping quote.
Shipping delays sometimes occur due to our travel schedule or because the watch requires service before shipping. Please contact us for more information.
For orders that are shipped in Canada you can pay in Canadian dollars at par, and benefit from lower Canadian shipping rates, by choosing the “Buy now” button with the Canadian flag above it (lower payment button). Shipping and applicable taxes (GST/HST) will be added at checkout.
If a Canadian pay now button has not yet been added to the item you wish to purchase, email us and we will send a Canadian $ payment request.
The latest addition of the NAWCC horological news bulletin has an article about increased interest in pocket watches since the release of the Hollywood movie Sherlock Holmes where Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock) and Jude Law (Watson) are seen sporting them. NAWCC reports that “Jewelers, watch vendors, and fashion pundits, have noted an increase in inquiries about fob chains and pocket watches during the past few months. The release of Sherlock Holmes last December offers a clue.” Here at Antique Trebor’s Vintage Watches we also have noticed the recent increased interest and purchase of pocket-watches!
Here at Trebor’s Vintage Watches we are constantly trying to improve our site and make it as user friendly as possible. We welcome suggestions from our customers on how to improve the site. While not every suggestion can be implemented, all will be considered. Thanks to a recent customer’s suggestion I have now created a new category for “sold watches” and moved the bulk of these items (more than 200) out of the main listing thus removing a lot of clutter. As items are sold they will remain in the main listing for a short time before being rotated out and some items of particular interest may remain there on a long term basis. I had not realized until it was pointed out how cumbersome and frustrating it could be sorting thru available and sold items. After all none of us likes to waste time looking for the perfect timepiece! Many people however do come to our site looking for information and find the sold items useful, which is part of the reason I do not want to delete them, hopefully the new set up will benefit all of our visitors.
We normally ship within 48 hours of you purchase but there are some exceptions due to our travel schedule. Because of our travel schedule, any purchases made Between Feb 16 -24 will be shipped on Feb 25th. Thanks for your understanding.
If you are ordering from within Canada it is possible to pay in Canadian $ at a competitive exchange rate. Just email me and I will send a Canadian $ payment button to you, using the daily mid market rate (half way between buy and sell rates) from the TD Bank’s site. You also will benefit from a lower shipping rate for destinations within Canada than our posted international shipping. If you do pay in US$ thru our regular system just request a Canadian shipping credit and a refund will be sent to you. Please note that all Canadian sales are subject to 5% GST.
