I received the beautiful watch two weeks ago, and it has hardly been off my wrist since.  I was amazed at the overall beautiful condition:  case, great enamel bezel, dial, hinges, the whole timepiece, Thank you again so much for your patience and friendly service in the transaction.  I hope to do business with you again in the future.  Thanks again for everything,

Watch arrived safe and sound. It is a beautiful watch and all functions are working. Thanks and Regards
RP, New Jersey, September 2015

Steve, thanks for working with me. I love the watch. It is a pleasure to wear it. Here's the story behind it. When my parents were engaged in 1948/49, my mother's mother gave my father this watch as an engagement present because it had no visible stem wind. He was in the textile business and she thought that threads might catch on the stem wind. (He didn't wear a watch). When I graduated from college in 1973, our house was robbed and the watch was taken. (He hadn't worn it, of course). I've looked for many years for a back wind, back set Cartier watch, but have only been able to find conventional tanks. So this sort of puts things back to where they were 42 years ago. I thought you'd find this of interest. BTW it keeps excellent time and is easy to wind once you get the hang of it. It runs almost 48 hours in a full wind. Again thanks.
SR, New York, August 2015

My pocket watch arrived this morning! Thank you. I am very pleased with it and I followed your directions. Again, my sincerest thanks.
OO, Arkansas, July 2015

Hi Steve,
It's brilliant ! The moment that I held it I knew that it was exactly what I hoped it to be. It is quite beautiful, and in a deeply eccentric way does indeed average accuracy of five minutes per diem; and at that age we are all entitled to our little eccentricities......... As ever, a pleasure ! Yours ay,
CD, UK, August 2015

Received in good order last Friday. Watch runs and keeps time. My wife's already worn it out, receiving compliments. As always, we're very satisfied customers.
JS, Louisiana, July 2015

Hi Stephen
Just wanted to let you know that the watches arrived this morning in perfect condition. They are both little gems. I really enjoy perusing your website, the descriptions & photos of your fabulous offerings were very helpful in making my choices (not an easy task given the extensive scope of your collection). I really appreciate your prompt replies to my questions. I hope to do more business with you in the future & would certainly recommend you to family and friends. Thanks so much for all your help.

Thanks and regards, CG, Canada, October 2013

Hi Steve!
This evening I came back home after work and the package was there! After the unboxing ritual I saw the watch in all its beauty. It survived all the miles from USA to Switzerland very well and it's in nice working order. I would say it is back home! It's just perfect and the movement looks really complicated. And when it chimes... no words... the tones are simply beautiful!!. Thank you again! Great support by purchasing and really professional!
Kind regards MV, Switzerland September 2013

Hi Steve,
I received the watch this morning in fine working order. I read and re-read all the instructions before doing anything and everything worked out fine:>) It looks and runs as well as it was displayed and described on the web-site. ItÕs just beautiful.
Thanks so much, LS, New Jersey, May 2013

Hi Steve,
The watches arrived safely today without a hitch, and even slightly ahead of schedule, and were left with my late neighbours' son ! I set them against my longcase clock about three quarters of an hour ago - which as a dweller in the San Francisco area you might be amused to learn is by a Girvan maker rejoicing in the name of Robert Hunter ! - and thus far, you'll be pleased to know, (though not, I think, surprised), all three are in accord. They are beautiful pieces, and very distinctive: I am so glad that I decided to opt for both of them.It has been a pleasure doing business with you, and I look forward to the next occasion. In the meantime please keep me up to date with any new items that arrive in either watch category. With my grateful thanks, and all the very best to you,

Hi, Steve -

The skeleton repeater watch arrived yesterday. Now that I've opened it, wound it, examined it and listened to it, I can't find the words to express how really beautiful it is! What a skilled watchmaker created this complicated mechanism two hundred some years ago. And, of course, I appreciate your skill in finding and bringing into top shape the fine watches you have. This is just as you described it. Again, thanks. I'm so glad I have the privilege of being a custodian of these pieces for awhile!! Best regards, DS, Florida, August 2012

Hi Stephen:
The watch just arrived a few minutes ago. The watch is a true stunner, just as was the last one I purchased for my wife back in June. BTW, she still marvels at it when she pulls it out for an event; doesn't bother her in the least that its a man's watch.
Best, LG Connecticut January 2012

Dear Mr. Bogoff,
I collected the watch from the local post office this morning. Everything is in pristine order. The watch is in even better condition than the photographs seemed to indicate. All the working details of the watch function as they should (chronograph, repeating train, etc.), and I'm delighted with it. Thank you so very much for a thoroughly pleasant arrangement, and I feel I may turn to you in the not-so-distant future for another watch.

Dear Mr. Bogoff,
Saturday morning I received the Dudley watch in the mail and it is more beautiful than the picture could ever show. I have been saving for this watch for some time and having it in my possession now is very special. I have had a wonderful experience in dealing with your professionalism and courtesy. I will keep your web address in my address book and will be happy to give it to anyone who is looking for the types of watches you deal in especially DudleyÕs. It is a good feeling when you deal with someone of your character and honesty.

That price sounds more than fair to me--especially since we almost threw it into the metal recycling bin, ha ha. I guess I've learned an important lesson--the easy way!

I have been away cruising off the coast of Maine in a boat I wish were larger, and have just returned. The watch is quite beautiful, and quite massive. Working just fine. Looks great with a fine chain I have, worn with jeans (which is just about where we pocket watch wearers are now, since pants no longer come with watch pockets).

It is rare in a world largely concerned with satisfaction on demand, to find someone as caring as Stephen Bogoff, who spends a long time helping his customers to find what they want, rather than what he wants to sell them. He is a professional and trustworthy dealer, absolutely straightforward and honest, with no hidden agenda. Those who are interested in watches, with all the vast variety of complications and varying types of escapement, quite apart from the aesthetic look of the watch itself, will find no one better or more willing to help. Of course he runs a business, but dealing with him is a very pleasant and rewarding experience, the proof of which will be found in the purchase of a watch from him. My repeater arrived beautifully packed and very quickly, and is a delight to me.
G.E., Scotland July, 2008

Hi Stephen,
I received your payment. I would like to thank you again for being so helpful and honest throughout this process. To reiterate, should you ever need a reference for a potential client I would be happy to act as one. I wish you the best of luck.
Take care, C.B. Canada October 2008

Hello, Steve,
The watch has just arrived! It is just beautiful and so unusual and since I have always been a fan of pink gold, it is perfect. So pleased to have found your website, and particularly appreciate the care you take in dealing with your customers. I look forward to working with you again.

Hi Steve ...
The watch arrived yesterday, well-packaged and in excellent shape.  It is a beautiful piece.  While the photos on your website were very detailed and informative, and the written description was quite complete, I'm pleased to say that the watch is all that you promised and much more.  It won't be easy to wait until Christmas to give it to my husband.  I thank you, as well, for your patience and flexibility as I arranged for my friend to view the watch in person and as I checked your references, which you so willingly gave.  This was a big purchase for me, and your assurances and professionalism made buying from an online retailer possible.
With best wishes, G.W. California September 2008

The watch arrived today and is indeed a beautiful piece. Thanks!!!
H.S. North Carolina September 2008

Hello Stephen-
You are hearing from a very satisfied customer. The watch arrived yesterday, was examined today, and reported by my watchmaker as a beautiful example of its kind. This supported my view as well. Certainly it was as good or better than advertised. In fact, your pictures overstated the dial flaws, which errs on the side that a customer hopes for; surprises should, at least, not be unpleasant, which these days in not commonly the case.

Hi Steve,
Have just come back from a short break away with family. The watch arrived on Saturday and I have been to collect it today - wow, it is fabulous. Many, many thank you's - its even nicer than the pics. If you would like me to send comments, I would be happy to give these and indeed for anyone to contact me about how well you have handled the sale. I will forever sing your praises - sorry I was such a horror about sending money via a wire transfer. Thanks again

It has been my pleasure to work with you. You are very professional and fast. We have made a mistake with the payment, that's partially my banker's fault and mine.

The watch arrived. Thank you very much. I enjoy it immensely.
Godspeed, P.C. California July, 2007

Steve, It was a pleasure doing business with you, and we'll have to do this again in a couple of years.
JM3, Florida July, 2007

Hi Steve,
The watch is more beautiful than I imagined. It is slim, light, and elegant. Currently, I wear a Rolex Oyster Perpetual, and I would not think twice in changing it for the Calatrava. Unfortunately, I bought it as a present for my father's 70th birthday (he was born in 1937 and he loves Pateks). I am sure he will be incredibly happy. Luckily, I will inherit it one day...It was hard to take it off from my wrist. It was a pleasure to deal with you. I will keep in touch.
Thank you again for the assistance, Regards, MT, BC, Canada July, 2007

Hi Steve,
Today I got your great watch - thank you very much. The watch is really beautiful and I am highly pleased. I think the dial looks even better than I remember from your pictures. Your packaging was perfect and the watch "survived " the shipping without any problems. Thanks again for this very smooth transaction.
Best greetings from Switzerland, TS July, 2007

Steve -
I received the watch in good order and it is exactly as you described - "smashing!"
Thank you. FG, Virginia July, 2006

Hi Steve,
The Patek Philippe watch arrived after 100 years back home safely. Thank you !
With kind regards, JB Switzerland May, 2007

It's here! And "oh boy" it was worth waiting for just as you said. It looks almost "as new". All the others I have show signs of wear usually at the "bow", one was so bad I had to make an attempt at repairing it. It arrived in perfect condition. I have a few examples of the work of Dent the most notable (until now) being a 2 day boxed marine chronometer on gymbals. So, overall I am very pleased with this watch and with the service from your organisation.
Best regards, R.B. United Kingdom April, 2007

Hi Steve,
I received the watch today. It is beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better 40th birthday present for my husband. He absolutely loved it! He knew what it was immediately and was completely enamored by it! Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart. Doing business with you was great! Again, thank you so much!
With warmest regards, J.R., New York April, 2007

J.R.B, Florida April, 2007

Hi Steve--the watch arrived in great shape. It is better looking even than the photos. Thanks again for a great transaction. As I mentioned I will be contacting you in the near future about some others.
Regards, M.F. New York City April, 2007

Hi Steve!!!
The first watch arrived this afternoon and I gave it to my wife tonight and she absolutely loves it!!!. I also think it is perfect for her. I was worried it would be too big/heavy to wear as a pendant watch, but it's just right. I was worried about the appearance of the face because it was a little hard to see in the photo, but it's beautiful!! We are definitely going to keep it for a long time and hand it down for generations to come. I would also like to thank you for maintaining professionalism throughout the entire process. I was very pleased to see an internet business handled with such integrity.
Sincerely, AB, Massachusetts March, 2007

Hello Steve,
The watch arrived safely and there was no unpleasantness from Swiss customs. Absolutely marvelous watch and immaculate state of conservation!
With best regards, A.M., Switzerland March, 2007

Hallo Steve,
Thank you for your e-mail and for your concern about my order. I received the chain on the 14th and I did send you an e-mail the same day, but I guess you did not get it. I am very happy about the chain and I will continue to look at your website for watches and other things.
Yours sincerely, CMR, Sweden March 2007

Hello Steve,
May be due to the word FRAGILE on the package, they didn't want to send it too fast, so the box arrived after 9 days this morning. And in perfect condition. I am glad with my acquisition. Kind regards
LG The Netherlands August, 2006

Thanks a lot for the watch. There is no surprise. The watch is as I imagine it, seeing the pictures. Your watches' pictures show exactly the subject. We can not be misled. I have get what I have see. That the more important thing for anybody to be in confidence when he's buying on internet. I can't say the same thing on the other watch web sites. That sure, I recommend this great site to everybody. Best Regards

The watch has arrived and appears to have survived the trip. I have wound it and it appears to be working well. Thanks for moving this so quickly. I will certainly visit your site in the future and likely be a repeat (no pun intended) customer.
Regards, P.S. New York

Dear Stephen,
The watches and chains just arrived and they are beautiful. I got the winding part figured out – I hadn’t been sure if I would need a key or not – obviously they are stem-wound. I’m so very pleased with these. I may be in touch with you in the very near future. I’ve got a little more that I’ve been socking away in hopes of finding some nice watches, and I’d really like to pick up something nice in gold. Thank you again, and hopes that you have a wonderful weekend.
Best regards, P.C. Nevada

The watch arrived safe and sound just before I left for a weeks holiday. It is absolutely brilliant and I am really really pleased with it.
