Photo Report Watch Shopping In Miami (Redux)
Standing in a palm tree-lined parking garage, I am preparing in the sun. My first time in Miami, I can feel the beginning of burn from the sun and I’ve just been out of my taxi for five minutes. I’ve come to Miami for Watches & Wonders and showed up somewhat ahead of schedule to chase down a particular Miami Beach address in line with one Ben Clymer. Tragically, I’m lost.
Tasked with the advantageous evening task of offering a development to this exemplary HODINKEE present , I’m taking a stab at discover Matthew Bain’s studio. For a significant number of you, Matthew Bain will not need a presentation. He is a productive vintage watch vendor situated in Miami, and you may recollect him from his essence on the “How Vintage Watches Are Really Bought And Sold” board at HODINKEE 10 a year ago, and no uncertainty some of you have purchased a watch or two from him. In any case, on the off chance that you need to see some stunning vintage watches in Miami, Matthew Bain’s studio is the spot. If I can discover it.
After strolling around and around for more than I’d prefer to concede while exchanging a couple of writings with Ben, I saunter into the cooled entryway of a uninspiring place of business. Sweat-soaked and baffled with myself for being late, I pray fervently as I get off the lift and buzz the entryway for what I accept is Matt’s studio. As the entryway clicks open, the sheer volume of watch stuff inside view would recommend I’m in the perfect spot. It’s everywhere. Encircled by ephemera most horological, I discover Matt, his partner Morgan, and Ben, pouring over a table stacked with heaps of watches. I’m new off a plane from NYC and the sea shore can pause. I’m home.
Whatever your taste, Matt has a piece (or a great deal) to offer. From valuable Pateks and steel Rolexes (both old and something else), to APs, VCs, Cartiers, and Omegas, it felt like I had entered a type of a vintage watch fugue state. It’s only one out of every odd day that, in the range of a couple of hours, I will take a stab at everything from an early strong gold Royal Oak to a 114270 on a celebration, a COMEX Sub, and full set unique Nautilus (with the stopper box, scroll down!).
I shot until my blaze quit and afterward I continued onward, so take a look through the accompanying photoset and make certain to comment to tell us what got your attention. At long last, a major gratitude to Matt and his group for having me into the studio and for being a decent game when I required a wrist model.
