Hi, I am Robert Laughlin, President of Trebor Antiques and of Trebor’s Vintage Watches. We have been in business since 1985 and have been on the Internet since 1998. We like to say that we ‘only have happy customers’ and I think that after 25 years in business we have done a pretty good job of living up to that saying. We have a very high rate of repeat buyers and we promise we will do our best to make you want to come back also! Below are comments from some of our customers.

Robert Laughlin

Hi Robert – just got the watch – it’s beautiful!

Finish is far better than I ever imagined it would be.

Crown looks fantastic.

Any thoughts on the discoloration at the 6:00?

Is that something that could be touched up, or is it best just to leave it alone?

Once again thanks very much.

Watch is really beautiful – pictures did not remotely do it justice


Hello! The watch just arrived and it is absolutely stunning! In fact, it is much better looking than the photos suggested. I was considering getting the dial refinished, but, it is superb as it is!

Thank you.

Roy P


I received the watch today and it is more than i anticipated. I
appreciate you getting to me so fast. I will be back to your site for



customer from United States

Watch arrived safe and sound. It’s a lovely piece. Thanks for all your help. Happy Christmas!

Cian in Dublin, Ireland

Robert…. just a quick thank you the watch arrived today… and even more beautiful than expected… alas the deployment clasp is much too big… will have to resort to an ordinary leather strap, Lea


Dear Robert,

The beautiful w.w.w. arrived already on Monday afternoon. I test wore it immediately the whole evening, since wife is traveling. (it’s b-day present for my wife – as mentioned earlier)
It so great that I will have a hard to time wrap it up and give to her! Which makes the w.w.w. even more precious gift.
Good that all finances are settled, too
Most Likely we’ll do business in the future. I never had a bigger thing to watches, but now i feel i may get hooked.

With Warm Regards

customer from Toronto, Canada

Hi Robert

I just received the watch looks great, thanks. I’m very impressed: I’ve got a great looking watch at a more than fair price. But what really impressed me was the incredible customer service I received.
Few dealers would offer the top notch treatment I just received.

I mean it.

Thank you

Barry Rubin

PS I’ll be checking your wesite frequently from now on.

customer from Alberta

Hello Robert,

I was out of the office all week last week so wasn’t able to open up the watch until this morning. It is wonderful! I like it very much.

Everything seems to be running fine, except I am dumbfounded as to how to set the moonphase… there are three mini-push buttons, and I assumed one of them would adjust moonphase, but all I seem to be able to advance is the date pointer, dates, etc.

Any clues? I am sure it is something very simply I am missing.


customer from United States

The watch arrived today and is all I hoped.
Thanks for a prompt and efficient service.

Brian D Chilvers
customer from UK

Received the watch today. Beautiful. Thanks for the surprisingly quick delivery response and of course not forgetting the additional strap. I forgot to ask, do you happen to know which year this particular model was from, as I am sure it will come up in conversation.

Many thanks again,
customer from Toronto, Canada

Just got the watch. I unwrapped it (A nice job wrapping it by the way as
it arrived in working condition). I wound it and it is running
beautifully. Thanks again for helping me get another nice one for the
permanent collection. I would and will happily do business with you
again. Kent Mathews
customer from United States

Hiya Robert,

I’ve only just managed to have a look at the watch without spoiling the suprise for Christmas. The watch is absolutley beautiful, and looks mint. I also wanted to thank you for the labelled packaging …..

thanks again, Terry.
customer from UK

Dear Robert,
I have had the watch running for three days now and
it is keeping time to within 1 – 2 minutes every 24 hours. I am being very
careful with it and have taken note of all your advice about its wellbeing.
Thank you for the care and attention that you have taken to get this very
beautiful watch running properly.

I hope that you have a great Thanksgiving.

Best wishes,

customer from Ontario, Canada

Mr. Laughlin,

I received my 1968 Omega Seamaster DeVille today, and I am extremely pleased with this time piece! The watch was very well packaged and it’s condition was just as you had described…excellent. Again, I was somewhat hesitant to make such a purchase considering the distance between Quebec Canada and New Orleans Louisiana. However, after considering all aspects of this transaction, I would certainly do business with you again. Thankyou again for time, and I look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Best regards,

Robert Bergeron

Hi Robert,
I have just collected my watch for EMS Postal Depot at 11.30am British Time.It is a beautiful watch and was still working well inside the parcel.Iam very pleased about the purchase. Iam wearing it now and is so different from my 1980s Omega Constellation which has a very different design and feels much heavier than this 1956 Omega Constellation. What I was expecting to find inside the package was some written information about the watch which I had asked about.The sort of information which is included on the photographs in the catalogue.

Please keep in touch.

Good morning Robert,

I got the watches yesterday, like them very much. They are very feminine. The movement seems to be accurate.

Thank you very much for the quick shipping.

PS. Thanks God, my wrist is OK for the bracelet, but next time I should check the size of it before buying :)



Toronto, Canada

Thank you, Robert;

Just picked it up today as I was out of town. The watch is great, and the new strap is a nice surprise! I also appreciated the careful packaging…I’ve had watches sent in rather feeble envelopes before which of couse, don’t always do very well. A great addition to the collection. I’ll keep watching your site!

By the way, she absolutely loves the watch!!

Re: Oversize Omega Bumper # 788

I’m thrilled with my new Omega, it arrived in impeccable shape, (fast
and secure) -and exactly as described, though the pictures didn’t do it
justice. It’s a fine piece and I’ve received many compliments. I’ll
certainly be keeping an eye on your inventory. Many thanks.
John Frizzell Re: OMEGA #407 18K
Beverly Hills, Ca.

Hello Robert….Watch arrived as promised…everything is great…thanks for the band and great service. One quick question is re winding the watch from a dead stop. Is it OK to wind carefully one or two turns to “kick start” the watch, or should you rely on the bumper exclusively?
Owen H. Ottawa, Canada RE: #1562 1947 Seamaster

Robert – I am very pleased to confirm that both watches have safely
received (early last week), are working and keeping good time.They are quality timepieces and I am very pleased to have done business
with you.I will continue to look at your website and hope to be another satisfied
customer again in the future. Kind Regards

Dear Robert
Naoyuki Fujimori from Japan. I’ve bought your 5 items And, I would like to buy your other item Jaeger Le Coultre/Hermes Paris #441 Stainless Steel US$ 985 Do you still have this item in stock? If you still have it, I would like to buy from you.
Repeat Customer from Japan

Thanks, the black bumper keeps excellent time. Very impressive for a 50 year old watch.
Sean S. Ottawa, Ontario Canada

Thanks Robert. I use the watch about 2 to 3 days per week and so far it seems to be working fine. It loses a bit of time but it’s manageable within a one day period. Also, one complete wind up seems to last longer than 24 hours, which I’m glad about, since I don’t have to wind it more than once a day. I must say that I am really enjoying the watch.
Thanks again, John Toronto, Ontario, Canada Re: Rolex Pocket Watch c 1930

I just received the watch. It is very nice. Thank you
