Matthew Bain is a watch seller for watch collectors. Thick with jargon and drool-worthy dials, the website demands browsers dive right in. Dense with information, the site hosts everything from a “Paul Newman” Daytona Rolex from 1968 (which discreetly requests interested buyers to message for a price) to an extensive collection of Patek Philippe. His “Browse By Brand” tab lists every worthy watch maker from the past century.
Inspired by his father’s massive watch collection, Matthew started buying and selling watches as a hobby. But in 1989, he turned that hobby into a business. With over 30 years in the luxury watch trade, every item listed is flush with details and history. He includes a personal “Matthew’s Note” section for each listing with these observations. When he gets particularly excited about a find, Bain writes a blog post for the home page explaining the history behind the rarity.
Avid watch collectors like John Mayer and James Marsden as well as athletes like Kevin Love and Seth Curry follow his Instagram account. Based in Miami Beach, FL, Bain travels extensively, always on the hunt for the next watch treasure. His passion for the trade is clear in every watch on offer.
