Growing up in a family engrossed in the wholesale jewelry business, Aaron got a taste for the watch industry early on in life. Hooked from the start and eager to learn, he began spending summers during high school working in the family\u2019s watch establishment in the heart of Jewelers Row in Chicago. His passion for collecting watches quickly evolved into a hobby and eventually turned into his own online business. In 1999, he began buying, selling and trading watches on Ebay and Timezone, and has maintained 100% feedback ratings. Aaron cultivated his expertise during the six years he spent working alongside his cousin, a prominent watch dealer in Chicago. Since 2007, Aaron has sourced watches to over 2,000 clients and developed a loyal following of watch collectors. As a member in good standing with the International Watch and Jewelry Guild (IWJG), Aaron continues to seek out vintage watch deals at trade shows around the country. He has found there is no watch he cannot attain through his vast network of dealers and associates and prides himself on only selling pieces he has personally owned and inspected.
