A timepiece can say a lot about a person, from their professional field and accomplishments to their individual taste and sense of style, or simply an admiration for fine craftsmanship and technical precision. Here at Tempo & Time, we don’t just buy and sell luxury watches, we obsess over them. All watches have history and heritage, and used watches in particular tell not only the time, but also a story. As avid watch collectors-turned-dealers, our passion lies in finding the ideal owner to take a used watch into the next chapter of its journey through time.
As a dealership, retailer and family business, we pride ourselves in only selling watches that are in exceptional condition and perfect working order, whether they are brand new or 50 years old. Therefore, all watches come with a one-year warranty against mechanical failure, in addition to any manufacturer’s warranty that remains valid. We deal in most luxury watch brands, including Rolex, Omega, Cartier, Panerai and Audemars Piguet, however we are also happy to help source watches of any brand using our far-reaching global network, for collectors with specific requirements.
Please do not hesitate to give us a call, we will be pleased to help, and if nothing else we would love to hear your own horological story!
Ever since repeatedly borrowing his father’s vintage Rolex Datejust as a teenager, Simon has had a penchant for older, rarer timepieces. Finally purchasing his own birth year Rolex in his early twenties, Simon took his watch passion abroad while he lived and travelled throughout Asia for several years as a travel magazine editor and writer, until returning to London in 2015 to fulfil a life-long aspiration of starting a family business alongside his older brother. With a preference for dress watches, Simon believes that a vintage Rolex or Omega on bespoke leather strap works for just about every occasion.
Jonathan has a long-standing interest in all things watch collecting that goes back to his teenage years when he saved up to buy his first luxury timepiece: an Omega Speedmaster. Prior to co-founding Tempo & Time Ltd, Jonathan held lead communication roles in both public and private sectors: firstly for HM Treasury, followed by one of the world’s largest commercial property companies. He then decided to go his own way by pursuing his passion for horology. With a diverse taste in timepieces, he can often be found wearing anything from a vintage sports Rolex, to a limited run Panerai or a newly released Audemars Piguet.
