About Us

Essence of Time, Inc. is a family-owned, Internet-based watch retail company founded in 2001, and our office is located in the greater Chicago area, in the Midwest region of the United States. We specialize in buying, trading, and selling high-quality timepieces. We are a private retailer, so we are not classified as a brand-authorized dealer of the timepieces featured on our website. This enables us to be able to purchase certain quantities of product at larger discounts, and then we can pass those savings on to our customers in the form of discounted, top-quality watches and watch accessories.

We carefully select our merchandise, and all of our new and pre-owned watches are verified for authenticity and inspected for any possible malfunctions. We strive to provide an extremely diversified selection of top-name timepieces made by the most respected watch manufacturers in the world. We aim to provide our customers with knowledgeable and personable customer service. And, we are strongly committed to what we do, and abide by professional trade practices. Our customer's satisfaction is of the greatest importance to us, and we always welcome feedback and suggestions from our customers.
