     You may be new to owning a watch, or have a closet full of them.  Either way, this collection of watch community contacts will keep you busy for a very long time.  You may wonder where to begin.  After you scan through the initial home page of the forum or group, there is a lot underneath the surface.  Explore the site beyond the first look, many hidden gems of information are in the sub forums or individual threads.  Register to find out, most of the time a simple confirmation email will be sent.  Our wonderful resource can be used in a number of different ways. We know that it can be overwhelming clicking through the internet trying to find what you need. Keep in mind these 2 benefits:


1. Research

Look for the color scheme you like. Think about your skin tone, and where you would show off your new watch. Do you want to show what you can afford, or don’t you care? Pay attention to the many image displayed throughout the site, and notice the comments about the images benefits and pitfalls. Research pricing for the both new and used items, not only at the site you are on, but other forums/groups out there.  Then for better decision making check advertised pricing through a search engine.  A quick way to do this is to at Bizrate.  If you want to some inside information on how pricing /supply is handled online, check out this blog post.

   2. Community

There is no better way to find a niche of like minded people that these forums/groups provide. If you absolutely love a brand or watch characteristic, other like minded folks can lead you into news, new products, or tips for care of what you have or want to own. Some forums/groups have live learning opportunities in the form of live conferences, and get together in real life! If you are a store owner, or make money through watches somehow this aspect of the listings given will help you increase your reach and offer linking opportunities with others.

     As you click through the many links above you will be taken to a dizzying display of different web layouts, both commercial and educational. We would understand if you might need help making sense of it all. We feel the most important pieces of these resources are an easy to use layout (for instance quickly finding a brand) to save time, an active and on topic conversation to know if the site is worth your time, and if there are any major differences in how the site is managed.

   To save time we will cover the biggest and broadest forums in detail. We also know many are looking for used watches to buy or trade, and need a sales corner that isn't dominated by overpriced stores. We place a high emphasis on forums that allow trade or sales between individuals.  Some forums and all Facebook groups cater to this need, and remains the best way to get an unbelievable deal.  

The Biggest and Broadest Forums

     As you get farther and farther into your love for watches, forums will be the obvious first place to visit. They are perfect for finding information to cater to your wants and needs in a watch. The first kind of forum that you should visit should have broad and wide scope to refine what you are looking for.  The overall layout of the forum is important to keep your interest going.  We think an easy to use layout (meaning helpful menu links) will also save you a lot of time.  Finding a great style (meaning what the a general category like dive/pilot/military etc.) quickly should be a main feature,  as well as quickly finding a brand.  Finally, we know many are looking for used watches and need a sales corner that isn't dominated by overpriced stores.  We place a high emphasis on forums that allow trade or sales between individuals. 

      That's why we want to tell you about some of the biggest and broadest forums, to help you on your way.  A discussion about wooden watches may not be there but the good news is you can start your own.  Also many of these companies might have a wood watch product line so you'll find out more about the company itself. Feel free to start your own discussion or "thread", and tell others about your own interest or business with wooden watches.


It is easy for us to get excited about this one. In the Forum the choices are massive. Watchuseek does a nice job of differentiating theme forums brand forums official forums dedicated to the manufacture and Main forums dedicated to quite a few other things.  Main forums dive deep into the lifestyle and Design watchmaking images reviews and many others.  One of our favorite aspects of watchuseek is the sales corner for private Sellers and sponsors. One of the best places to get a good deal as to an individual a private sale, and if you're low on cash a trade.

Obviously this is great for research. You could research themes, brands, manufacturers, images, reviews and more. You could get some great ideas of price for new and used watches too.  As an added bonus,  when typing in the word "wood" into the search query quite a few threads will come up. That means has an active audience for wood watches.  This is a great first beginning for any first-time buyer.

     Watchintime is your another active community but not with as slick of a layout. The menu isn't as massive as watchuseek but they do a good job with watch style and watch brands. Their brands are grouped into location in the world. That would save you time if you knew what you were looking for. 

      We're watching time really excels the sales corner.  Not only do they have the run of the mill deals and sales they also have a buyer and seller Lawns with feedback selling advice members watches for sale and trade and what's wanted by the members themselves. . definitely one of the places to eat out if you're looking for a good deal.  unfortunately we couldn't find any wood watches discussions going on you should start your own. there's even a spot for get-togethers in life discussions.

     No flashy Graphics here. Watchdog forums has a main links headers is split watches up in the general country Smart Watch forums nice and what we really like is the affordable watch forum.  About 15 different categories and watch brands are listed. At the bottom there's a watch sales thread but we don't like about it is you have to be registered member to use it and you have a must have a post count of 25 or more to post so that means if you're already involved in this forum you can use it but it will take a while if you're not.

     more for intermediate user.  Good for research if you know what you're looking for but as we said earlier that is a problem the sales corner is so restricted.

A general white and blue layout leading into a much smaller linked list and it seemed the dive watch Forum dominates the page.  Seems not to have the layout that the others possess there's no brand listing or style listings it does have a trading post

If  you're looking for easy to find brand and style forums is not the place to go. On a positive note though this had a very big dive watch forum.

is another Titan no watch talk forums much like watch you seek we like the community tab with it not only a sales corner but a watch repair forum even jobs listing in the watch industry they do a good job with brand forums not much in the way of watch styles. Also an automotive forum which is out of the ordinary the sales corner is only for watches only under $5,000 so affordable watches seem to be a little harder to find especially if you want to trade timezone is very restrictive on the sales corner with many many rules as to how many you can sell. Because it is so restrictive it seems like the businesses I have a lot of product to sell would dominate the sales corner. To offer more opportunity Timezone links to a trading post on

With a basic blue and white layouts not as flashy as the others but it seems like a great Community to be a part of I don't we just discuss watches but also there's other items in the lounge if you want to bring in your interest of maybe cars luxury clothing Sports things that you're interested in. Side split into a general discussion and then about 20 brand forums with sub forms attached. It's also has an active buy sell and trade forum.

Watch Freaks is good for if you wanted to research a certain brand listed and you can always peruse the sub forums little harder to find what you need cuz they're split up into other brands or luxury brands. As we said the lounge seems fun if you want to take a break from learning about watches and then you can take him time to look at the vendors page and see what kind of deals you can find. 

looks like this is dedicated to 6 different brands as you can see on me homepage sneak peek is a place to talk about 9 labe watch things you know different photography techniques equipment Second Amendment Lounge and then another General photo gallery. This site also has a small market place looks like it's not as widely used as the others. 

it should be a good second opinion if you have a Rolex Omega question. Also if you're looking to group together a place for your market sales this could be used in your grouping other than that it is much smaller and could be less useful.
