Watch Vault NYC

Watch Vault NYC is one of the largest and most trusted sellers of pre-owned Omega watches in the USA. We continuously and obsessively scour the US and the rest of the world obtaining the best quality pre-owned Omega watches to showcase in our store for our clients.

Watch Vault NYC was founded and is managed by J.A. Jao, a long-time Omega enthusiast and watch collector. Long frustrated from one end with the watch hobby community's esoteric and sometimes downright shady trading practices that were inaccessible to the casual buyer, and from the other end the lack of expertise and transparency and high prices of pre-owned watches being sold by existing online retailers, Mr. Jao brought his extensive e-commerce experience to bear to create Watch Vault NYC - the perfect middle ground that provided both the subject matter expertise, attention to detail and attractive pricing found on watch trading communities, with the convenience, security, and client experience associated with buying from a reputable company.

Our laser-focus on a single brand concentrates both the best selection and expertise in a single location. If you're looking for a pre-owned Omega and live in the USA, Watch Vault NYC is your first stop.
