Eye on watches

Joseph Ladovitz can tell you exactly when he fell in love with watches. When he was 14, he was at a garage sale, and he came across a vintage mechanical Hamilton watch. He recalls he had never seen anything like it, and was immediately intrigued. The owner told him it would cost him a $1. He said he immediately closed the sale and “began his journey into the fantastic world of horology.” After buying and selling Timex and Fossil watches on Ebay in college, he has now graduated to high-end watches, including Rolex and Patek Phillipe which he buys, sells and trades at Birmingham Luxury Watches, 640 N. Old Woodward, Suite 102, in Birmingham. “We will sell any brand,” said manager John Lurie, and do buy and sell high end vintage watches, as well. “We appreciate each and every timepiece and all of the science, technology, artistry, craftsmanship, provenance, and history, amongst other attributes, behind them. The opportunity to wear and enjoy such a timepiece is a true luxury,” Ladovitz said. Birmingham Luxury Watches is open only by appointment.
