I have gone back and forth and worked with many vendors trying to obtain this particular timepiece, and this one happened to be the perfect match. Ornella was an absolute pleasure to work with. Buying something sight unseen in the high-end watch space can be disconcerting, to say the least. Ornella put all of my fears aside and offered me multiple means of purchasing options to alleviate my concerns. She is extremely kind and made the entire experience very simple. I will not hesitate to work with her again in the future.”

“In the market for a luxury timepiece or a bit of exquisite jewelry? The shopping experience can be admittedly stressful - trying to get on waitlists for coveted items and sorting through endless pages on the web for something timeless. Twain Time is the panacea for all of your woes, whether you’re a longtime collector looking to expand or a newbie looking to start.

A gorgeous yet warm boutique nestled in the streets of the UES, Twain Time looks the part: sparkling glass cases, sleek wooden desks and chairs, and brass finish on wall decor. It’s well-lit and ideal for meticulously inspecting your choices.

Make sure to set up an appointment over the phone, and be prepared to have a specific few pieces in mind. They have a wide diverse collection of fine jewelry and watches in mint condition for terrific prices, so do your due diligence and research. I can’t stress enough how pristine the watches we saw were. Only a store that truly prides itself in value can deliver the level of quality we saw.

More specifically, it’s Ornella and Andrea who provide unbridled knowledge and expertise as well as superior guidance every step of the way. We worked more with Ornella, who from start to finish, maintained reassuring professionalism and a warmth that was inviting. At the appointment, you’ll see their passion is palpable. They ultimately want you to fall in love with whatever you choose, so they gently offer their input while genuinely trying to understand what’s important to you. We never felt pressured and appreciated the open and thorough
communication. Regardless of whether or not you are new to this, it’s a significant purchase, which is precisely what Ornella and Andriana understand.

Twain Time sells an array of gems, and how fitting since it is truly an absolute gem itself.”

“I just wanted to highlight their commitment to customer service, even during these pandemic times. My entire experience was terrific - from start to finish. They are incredibly knowledgeable and really want to understand what the client wants, never pushing the sale.

Regarding the condition of my watch - I was very happy to see that the watch came in impeccable condition, even better than the description on their website.

I dealt directly with Ornella and found her very helpful and caring as well. I bought my watch through the phone, and she took care of me during the entire process.

Highly, highly recommend Twain Time.”

They were very responsive to inquiries and readily provided additional information about the piece (including condition, service history, additional pictures, etc.). When I received the watch, the condition was as good as described, and they encouraged me to contact them if there were any issues after the fact. I would happily deal with them again.”
