wants to keep all our shoppers and readers informed of the latest trends and industry news and to introduce you to new opinions and perspectives in the world of fine jewelry and watches. In turn, we’re bringing on board a handful of fresh expert voices, including watch and horology consultant Sophy Rindler.

The global community of watchmakers, collectors and aficionados is a remarkably tight-knit crew—but the industry landscape is changing and growing. More independent brands are emerging, legacy brands are evolving to appeal to modern tastes and a new generation of younger collectors is taking a strong interest in the tradition of watch collecting.

And a notable mover and shaker in this expanding space is Sophy Rindler. Sophy is a well-known name and face in the industry and has an incredible knack for bringing together key players in the horology industry.

She can reseat my jewels any time.
I like the watches she makes, but the brand name sucks the old root.

That oughtta be the title of a song: "She's Kinda Cute, But Her Watch Brand Sucks the Root." Would've been a great cover tune for Tom Petty...with backup vocals by Bob Dylan, perhaps.

She IS kind of cute. Yeah, she'd get it...bukkake mas fina!

So you pay Soapy to locate a watch for you and she does. But she takes a shine to it and decides that, fuck you client I'm keeping this and you can wait for the next one.

#1 Tip for Seasoned Collectors: Don’t buy vintage watches unless you are being advised by one of the few experts that exist in the world.

Oh, knock it off! Is every single person calling themself a horologist or horology consultant such an utter arse? That "tip" is effectively sending people right into the welcoming arms of the most pretentious sods in the entire community, the self-appointed "horologists" and "experts!" She can suck my...whoa, wait, OK - I wouldn't mind her doing that.

I've always looked at True Facet for the amazing amount of pre-owned they stock, but I honestly haven't been able to discern whether True Facet might be a decent place to try or just another scuzzy, Frankenwatch-selling scumbag NYC Diamond District come-on huckster hoax (unlike tokker, I don't even like to walk in the DD). I've yet to read about a single person who has dealt with TF.

Thanks, Mort. There's a way around everything, you know - you can put that quote on a T-shirt ;)
