Watch Buying at the 2016 Miami Beach Antique Show

February 6, 2016

I've exhibited at the Miami Beach Antique Show since 1991, because it's always a great venue for buying and selling watches. Dealers and collectors come from all over the world just to attend this show. I could feel a big buzz in the air this year as the watch dealers set up to buy and sell watches. There were many new dealers and collectors compared to previous years which made for a great selection of vintage and modern watches.

Below is small pictorial of the 2016 Miami Beach Antique Show:
