ABOUT THE WATCH GALLERY

about_imgFor more than two decades, The Watch Gallery has been Melbourne’s trusted dealer for selling and buying second hand watches. We have been trading in the best known and highest quality Swiss timepieces from the same Little Collins Street location (at 337 to be exact, right on the corner of Elizabeth St) for over 30 years now. For the last twelve under ownership of Chris La Galle, The Watch Gallery has been specialising in the most famous (and infamous) and luxurious timepieces that are available on the second hand market.

Having grown up surrounded by ticking timepieces of all shapes and sizes – both Father and Grandfather were fulltime Watchmakers – you’d think that Chris couldn’t have got far enough away from watches. But they are addictive and with horology in the blood it really isn’t surprising that he has ended up in the industry.

And after 18 years of dealing at some of the best known Melbourne wholesalers and retailers, handling the best known Swiss brands which has included some of the rarest, highly sought-after and sometimes just plain weird timepieces, Chris is now proud to present the updated online catalogue of the pre-loved timepieces which are on offer at the iconic CBD Little Collins Street boutique. We’re proud to be the best online and offline place buying second hand watches in Melbourne.

What you will find on offer here are timepieces from the most iconic and highest quality brands. These include the likes of Rolex, Patek Philippe, JLC, IWC and Omega and more, from all decades – and centuries – of the horological craft. They are presented in the best possible or all-original condition at relevant and competitive prices and are available for delivery within Australia and world-wide.

Not only does The Watch Gallery offer fine quality timepieces for sale, we also buy second hand watches outright , and a full repair/restoration service for all types of pieces from all brands of all ages is also offered (please see the relevant pages for more information about these services).

So if you are looking to get into that Submariner you’ve always dreamt about, are trying to find a vintage IWC like your grandfather used to sport, want to move on a Breitling that is no longer being appreciated or have a much loved Longines that has just stopped dead for some reason, The Watch Gallery will be happy to help in every possible way to get the result you are trying to achieve with informative advice and assistance from years of industry experience.
