RETROSPECT: Cutting "in" the Middleman with Hamilton Powell of Crown & Caliber

Fueled by the unsettling feeling Hamilton Powell experienced after the sale of his automobile, Crown & Caliber looks to rid all negative conceptions one tends to have when selling a high-involvement item. As watches were already a longstanding interest for Hamilton, a business focused on selling high-end luxury watches was a no-brainer. Growing from two employees into 13, and soon an additional five, the demand for this type of service is evident, and in saying so, everyday sees a steady number of timepieces coming in and out of Crown & Caliber’s doors. We asked Hamilton to give us a special look at some of the timepieces currently awaiting new owners and were delighted when he brought back a handful of watches including a Rolex “Double Red” Sea Dweller 1665, an extremely rare Patek Philippe pocket watch, and an A. Lange & Sohne Lange 1. Watch the video above to learn of these three beautiful watches along with some tips on watch collecting from Hamilton Powell himself.
