I sold a JLC Reverso through Tempo & Time in early 2017. The sale process was seamless from start to finish (and they got me an excellent deal fairly quickly for what is ultimately quite a niche watch). Jonathan and Simon are knowledgeable, helpful, very responsive, and an absolute pleasure to deal with overall. I've dealt with many watch dealers over the years and Tempo & Time are one of the absolute best." - Geoffrey L, London
