Stetz & Co. Watches

Here at Stetz & Company our mission is a simple one.  

To unearth interesting, obscure and exceptional vintage mechanical watches.  

To offer only researched, carefully sourced and authenticated watches.


Josh remembers the day at 5 years old when he received his first watch as a gift from his grandparents.  It was a Mickey Mouse watch that he wore for years before finally retiring to the back of his watch box.  “My fascination with mechanical timepieces kickstarted in my early teens with a chance encounter at a local antique shop.  I spotted and picked up what I thought was a rather nice looking steel dress watch.  When I learned more about the ’64 King Seiko 49999 Chronometer I had rescued I was hooked, and as a car guy from my early teens on I was drawn in by the parallels in mechanics and design.

A vintage watch is a connection to a different time, and I enjoy pairing enthusiasts with beautiful watches outside mainstream brands. My personal passion revolves around chronographs from the 1930’s through 60’s, diving watches of the 50’s and 60’s and military watches of the same era.  Throw a beautifully balanced sector dial in the mix and you’re not leaving without it.” – Joshua Rankin, Founder

Our goal at Stetz & Co. is to offer a focused selection of interesting, obscure and exceptional vintage mechanical watches. We tightly curate to include various sports and tool watches, precision chronometers, brand milestones and barn finds, with an occasional “non-watch” find or two. We buy what we like, and what we believe offers a high level of value today and into the future.  If you’re looking for something specific please reach out.  We’re happy to utilize our network to find that perfect watch for you.


“Who can I put faith in when on the hunt for a vintage watch?”

Treat others as you wish to be treated.  It’s how we were raised and how we do business.  It’s our highest goal to source only incredible, authentic vintage watches and offer them affordably.   We aim for lifelong clientele and are proud to offer a full seven day inspection period to ensure each watch is a perfect fit.   If, for any reason, a watch does not meet a clients expectations, we’re happy to accept it back.  In addition we guarantee the functionality of every watch we sell for 30 days.*
