The dress watch has a special place in any gentleman’s collection, yet it is often ignored or under-appreciated. That being said, there is a certain quiet confidence when one wears, a timepiece both steeped in tradition, but equally the embodiment of horological discretion.
Even within the seemingly limited category of dress watches, a large diversity of designs can be found and appreciated, from original lugs to beautifully textured dials. What is not immediately obvious is far more interesting, be it a champlevé enameled logo or something as simple as the effect of having elongated index markers. The dress watch certainly is a testament to, and a lesson in, subtle expression and confidence.
Driven by a passion for horology and the pursuit of beautiful things, A Collected Man, is a platform, for those who love and seek, rare, mechanical watches.
We believe that there’s an art to collecting and want to offer a curated selection of important watches – whether new, vintage or preowned, in an aesthetic, intuitive and transparent way.
Being a London-born business, our sensibilities are imbued with a very British respect for tradition, but globally minded and ready to offer a modern and bespoke service which every collector deserves - whether buying or selling.
We hope that you’ll enjoy the new website and grow with us.
