Mitka’s vintage watch shop

Dear reader of our Watchguy blog.

I enjoy acquiring and fixing watches that I find interesting. However it is an expensive hobby and the time I spend on my own watches takes time away from client watches. Therefore I have decided to showcase my collection to anybody who is interested. All watches I list on this page have either been inspected or serviced by myself personally. This is my own little project and Christian has very kindly allowed me to have a link to my site. He is not responsible for any of the watches I sell.

  1. Lovely Eternamatic cal.1416 purchased from Mitka’s collection for my father’s 80th birthday – it was a circa 1954 model, and very close to the Eterna he bought in Singapore in the mid 50’s (& stolen from a house break-in in ’79). That’s a watch I well remember him wearing as a kid and its memory got me into analogue & vintage watch collecting in later years (my limit is strictly 10 at any one time!) He was over the moon with the ticking gift & today emailed to say ‘……the watch looks even nicer every hour I look’ 🙂

  2. Une folie !
    Acheté 2 montres proposées sur le Mitka’s shop…
    Eterna & Longines…design sobre, montres en parfait état de marche, livraison le jour de la Saint Valentin et 2 cookies offerts dans le package ! Un rêve !
    Nous nous reverrons dans quelques mois pour de nouvelles aventures…
    Pour l’instant my current bank account dit STOP !
    Extrêmement satisfait de ces achats
    A bientôt, donc. Antoine

  3. Enchanté de la petite montre Helvetia achetée cette semaine.
    Accueil de Mitka extrêmement professionnel…Logistique parfaite….la montre fait tic..tac (..et tient l’heure !). J’admire le travail de rénovation de cette montre; Réellement impressionnant => voir le blog concernant la remise en état de cette Helvetia Calibre 830…
    A bientôt !

  4. Ernest,I have just bought a lovely watch from this site(£220).Serviced and guaranteed by a reputable watchmaker.How do you justify your comment re.prices being three times true value?Please share your wisdom and tell me where I can source such watches for £75.If you know where they are,how much would delivery cost from Cloud Cuckoo Land?

  5. Brilliant. Nice to see an online shop where you can truly trust the Vendor!

    Wallet is shaking in anticipation 🙂

  6. Pricing is based on what I think the watch is worth based on quality and condition.

    Hi,
    it’s only my own opinion but this is a blog 🙂 and I would like to make some comments.
    Everything is not too bad except the prices(I personally don’t like vintage at all,small sizes, plexi crystals etc., but some people do like). I think everything is overpriced a lot in average about 3 times or more.

    • I belive you are very wrong in your assumptions. If you could offer me watches of this quality at 1/3 of the price I would appreciate some links?
      I am also rather baffled by the fact that you are so certain of prices on vintage watches since you don’t even like them? Are you really spending all the time needed for keeping an eye on market prices on stuff you do not like?

      Setting prices on vintage watches is always hard as the market shifts very quickly these days.
      Mitka is selling watches that has been fully serviced, and comes with a guarantee. That itself holds a lot of value.

      Anyway I am sure Mitka will entertain reasonable offers.

      • Oh no please don’t temp me. I’d love to buy one of those Helvetias but I must stop myself. No more watches in while.

        I have two Omegas and a Certina that I need to get fixed first. 😉

  7. Nice little shop and I’ll definitely keep an eye out for interesting pieces. One thing I miss though, is a diameter on the watches for sale…

  8. Very nice collection! I have seen a lot of them in the repair jobs. Will you keep any vintage watch for yourself?

    • Yes I have some sentimental pieces that I would not sell:) But the majority of watches are for sale as I have other projects that would need financing.

    • Pricing is based on what I think the watch is worth based on quality and condition. Not all the watches are cosmetically polished for a showroom, but the movements have all been serviced and repaired to a reliable state where I expect them to run well for many years to come.
