“Not only does Twain Time have one of the finest collections of pre-owned luxury watches and jewelry in New York City, but the level of care and support that the team extends to their clients is impressive. I am excited about the new ideas and vision from the female leadership at Twain Time; the watch world always benefits from more diversity.”
Over Three Decades of Experience
Inspired by tradition, education, and an appreciation of beautifully crafted goods, Twain Time has worked tirelessly to earn the respect and trust of our partners, associates, and clients over the last thirty years. Throughout our history, we have collected treasures from both the past and present in an effort to reconnect these precious goods with new custodians.
Our well-established experience in acquiring and selling exquisite, yet functional, objects have served to hone our expertise in antique, vintage, and contemporary pre-owned luxury watches and fine jewelry. Twain Time’s heritage was built by combining a passion for horology and jewelry with a dedication to long-term customer relationships. While we’re proud of our past, we’re also looking ahead to the possibilities of the future.
Authenticity & Provenance
To ensure the best possible collection for our clients, our team handpicks special pieces from seasoned collectors, reputable dealers, and experienced restorers. We are constantly searching for hidden treasures, while also verifying that our inventory is well-stocked with the latest must-have pre-owned watch and jewelry pieces.
With an unwavering commitment to integrity and transparency; each item that is added to Twain Time’s curated inventory has been meticulously inspected, evaluated, and authenticated. Our master watchmakers and certified jewelers breathe life back into pieces by aligning with the original manufacturer operating standards – without ever compromising the provenance or value of any piece.

Diverse and Dynamic
Led by Andriana Petrou and Ornella Volpatti, the female leadership at Twain Time offers a fresh approach to the often male-dominated fine timepiece space.
