    Stores with good used watch selections in Toronto

    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has any tips on good stores to visit in downtown Toronto for second hand watches? I'm usually in Toronto a few times a year with work, and I'm always looking for interesting places to check out when I'm there. I discovered last year that there's a number of pawn shops on Church Street. I'm typically on foot, but would take transit or Uber if there was a really worthwhile store.

    Thanks in advance,

    Trevor

    Van Rijyk has an excellent selection, prices arent the best,but if you are looking for it they will probably have it. Go over to Avenue and Eglington and Watchfinder has a good selection and these guys are great to deal with and will do a deal. Downtown in Yorkville the other Watchfinder location is pretty good as well. Van Rijyk will have the most watches however.

    Agree with everyone else. Watch finder will deal and van rijk has a huge selection including vintage but you will pay.

    Recently had a great experience with Watchfinder in Yorkville. Fun place and willing to deal.

    I have been dealing with van rijk for years....they will deal and they warranty all their watches for a year, meaning they will fix any issue on their dime
