2021 Best Watches

European Watch Company

Collecting watches is like collecting cars: You can’t get very far without the right dealer. Thankfully, Boston’s timepiece aficionados have European Watch Company, whose cases are filled with coveted tickers from the likes of Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Rolex. In business since 1993, the Newbury Street gallery is a great place to trade in and trade up, with a constantly changing inventory of new, preowned, and vintage watches — many of them rare.
