About Sonning Vintage Watches

Sonning Vintage Watches is a specialist vintage watch retailer trading exclusively online. We are a small family business and don’t have expensive high street premises or sales staff which enables us to spend our time sourcing and restoring the finest vintage watches. We have no ambition to be the biggest retailer but we do want to be the best.

Based in London and The Midlands Sonning Vintage Watches has been specialising in vintage wristwatches since 2009. We showcase and sell watches online, using our website as our showroom, but where possible we offer viewings by private appointment. All watches are hand-picked by us and we work closely with our watchmaker through the refurbishment process (4 to 6 weeks). We then present each piece with a comprehensive portfolio of high definition photographs and bespoke description.

We have built an enviable reputation for quality and first class customer service, with over 600 positive feedbacks on EBAY and hundreds more from direct sales. We have sold watches to over 30 countries world-wide and over 40% of our customers either buy another watch or recommend a friend or member of the family.

Sonning Anniversary Watches

Sonning Anniversary Watches was established in 2015 to fulfill an growing requirement to provide date specific watches. We have built up a collection of watches we can date from the late 40’s through to late 80’s. We are buying more stock every week to build the collection and diversity further.
