Vintage watchmaker and vintage watchmaker is what it sounds like.
It is an antique watch making shop.
The owner, Tom Dyer, opened it in 1962, a time when watchmakers were still finding out the value of their watch dials.
“It was very early on in my life,” Dyer said, “when I got a job at a time of high unemployment, when there was no such thing as a high school diploma.”
It was a time in the 1960s when there were only a handful of watches around, and many of those were made by small time-piece makers in the United States.
“They were doing all the work for us and then we would go out to the watchmakers and say, ‘Let’s make something,’ ” Dyer recalled.
“I made a couple of watches.
The idea to start an antique store came to Dyer when he saw a magazine article about a woman who was making watches in New York City. “
And then I got into it again after the Vietnam War, and we just kept working.”
The idea to start an antique store came to Dyer when he saw a magazine article about a woman who was making watches in New York City.
The article talked about her and her daughter making watches for their local watchmakers.
“What kind of a dream is that?”
“My wife was a watchmaker,” Dyeer said.
“Her husband was a factory worker.
She had no experience, but she was making a watch for her husband.”
So Dyer decided to give it a shot.
He bought the first watch from the company that made the dials for the timepiece, and started making watches himself.
“He was making one for himself at the time,” Dyders said.
That first watch, a 1967, was his first and only one made by a man.
“The owner was kind of an odd character, and he wasn’t the most attractive person to me,” Dyers said.
He was not even very well educated, but his wife, a retired nurse, was, so he took her and made her a watch.
The watch that Dyer made was the first he ever made.
“She told me, ‘Tom, I’m going to wear this watch on my arm, but I’m not going to take it off,’ ” he said.
Dyer began working in the watch business at a very early age.
“Tom was a young man,” Dysers said, adding that his father and mother both worked at the watch shop.
“One day he came in and he said, ‘Look, I’ve got a piece of jewelry that I think I want to sell you.’
I said, you know, ‘What are you talking about?’
He started making a few watches a year, but the more watches he made, the more he had to pay his rent and mortgage. “
The business grew quickly, Dyer says.

Dyers continued making watches until 1979, when he bought his first brand-new watch in the early 1980s. “
At that point I realized that I had to do something to keep my business going,” Dyers said about his time in business.

He kept making watches, and then he went back to work as a watch shopkeeper and watchmaker for a couple more years.
“We had two different stores, but we had the same customer, and so I said to myself, ‘Well I’ve just got to do it the right way,’ ” said Dyer.
“So I started selling vintage watches.
We did two different brands, and now we do six brands a year.”
The first thing Dyer did was buy a watch and start selling vintage and antique watches at the same time.
The other thing he did was get a new watch, and a watch that was an original, and keep that one.
“That was a big milestone,” Dymes said.
Now, Dyeers says he’s not interested in the vintage watch business, but he said he has noticed a change in the way people are buying watches.
“In the past two to three years I’ve noticed a lot more interest in vintage and vintage-inspired watches,” he said of the vintage and artisan watches.
In fact, he said that he’s seen a change over the past five to six years.
Dyeys said he noticed a shift in how people are getting into the vintage market.
“There are a lot of people who are into that, and they’re starting to buy vintage and other brands,” he explained.
Dyser has noticed that the interest in watches from a new generation of people, and the way they’re looking at them, is starting to change.
“A lot of times, the people who buy watches, it seems like they’re not buying watches that they were born with,” Dyrs said. In
