Absolutely agree with hotow (below). Avoid this place at all costs. I was in there when an Australian was taken for the 'Tax'. He negotiated a deal price which was inclusive of tax - and when he got his credit card slip the dodgy owner had included tax and charged an extra $220 to the price. All of this happened while I was waiting for my watch to have band put on it. I had to run to the 'watchmaker' - a term i use loosely - to retrieve my watch before it disappeared into the enormous black hole. If you have any doubts, do as hotow says. Just stand there for about 20 minutes and witness for yourself the customers who come pounding on this guys door for overdue repairs or other dodgy dealings. Heaps of places to buy watches in NYC - find somewhere else....

These guys are straight-up crooks. If you don't believe it, hang around the store for 15 minutes and listen to the people calling and coming in demanding their money or their watches back. I had to go to the local police precinct to make a complaint before I got my watch back. I had asked them to give me an estimate on a repair, and it took me more than a month to get it back.

Buyer beware. The positive "reviews" here are fake.

Essence of collectible!!

I have been there to store many times and i am a

regular customer of them. First time when i went i

wondered the store is setup but its actual essence of

collectible pieces. The vintage watches in that store are

marvelous they are brand new watches and of branded

models which you get on about nearly 50% off and a life

time guarantee appraisal with high value for insurance

purposes. i recommend you have a look at the store

and buy the stuff you like.

High-End Watches With High Appraisal Value!! – Branded watches with high appraisal values?? Brand new

watches of many brands like Rolex, Audemar piguet,

IWC and many other watches for best price. And there is

free appraisal certificate with it. The appraisal certificate

has high insurance value for the watches which is very

good. Huge collection of watches in the store. Watches

with diamonds, gold, steel, platinum, tantalium etc.

pretty good place to buy watches in Manhattan.?

Great Deal

I heard about Plaza from one of their Ads in one of the

magazines. I was looking to get my wife a 5ct Round

Diamond ring. They showed me one in beautiful quality

that appraised for $125,000.00 which I purchased for

$45,000.00. I know this was a great deal because I

went looking at Tiffany & Co. prior to shopping there and

their similar rings and similar quality was all between

$100.00 and $2000.00! My wife loved the ring.

These guys have good collection of rings and cufflinks. I am very thankful to my friend that he referred me to buy rings for my wife and cufflinks for me. Me and my wife went to the store to buy them. There were a lot of rings which took my wife about 2 hours to pick. But it was also good for me that I got them for best price with 40% off. And cufflinks were very beautiful.

Pros: Largest collection of items

Recommended Place for Rolex and other High-End watches!!! – My name is Nelson, I was recommended to Plaza by a friend. I came in looking to purchase men’s Rolex diamond presidential watch and trade in my old stainless steel sport model. After spending a little time with two of the sales people both of which were helpful and very knowledgeable. They made me an offer that I could not refuse and I purchased the gold Rolex presidential watch with diamonds that I wanted for myself and trade in my old stainless steel sport model plus they gave me a lady's gold diamond presidential watch for my wife. All for less then I was quoted down the block for just my watch! Basically I got two watches for less than the price of one! They both came with full boxes, guaranteed and insurance appraisal. Will highly recommend them to my other friends.

Beautiful High End Jewelry Pieces – I was supposed to go to the concert to Carnegie Hall with my wife. Due to the fact we arrived earlier we decided to walk around and walked into the Plaza out of the curiosity. We were amazed by their inventory. It seemed they had everything there: watches, baseball cards, sports memorabilia…

While I was standing there staring at the spots items my wife picked an expensive ring that she absolutely loved. I wasn’t ready to spend a lot of money but the owner gave me a great discount. I just couldn’t miss this offer. So be very careful while walking in the store with your wife, she will definitely find something that she likes there : )))

I just walked through the street and I found the store. I was tourist in new York . I got surprised with the old collectible items. They provide Appraisals, buy sell, repair, trade in, coins, stamps, watches, pocket watches jewelry, sport items, appraiser Wall street Journal, rated #1 Time out New York, etc.

These guys are great. The other guy at the end of the street had a wait time of 4 days for my Rolex repair and battery change. These guys did it in 1 hour and the watch was handed over to me. While I was waiting Lee the owner used his salesmanship and sold me an additional Patek Philippe which I was looking for at different places and online but it was not available....He had it right there....Impeccable service.....great guys to do business with.

Best Antique Watches in the store – My name is Mathew. My father turned 70 recently and I wanted to make a special gift for him. He used to have a Rolex watch that was stolen from him a year ago. I new he loved the watch a lot and couldn’t find anything to replace it. The watch was old and it was hard for me to find the same one. Likely, my friend told me that they were in Plaza recently and it was an amazing choice of antique watches there. I was able to find the watch that was very similar to the one my father used to have, except the color of the strap was different, but the salesperson told me that they will be able the replace the strap on anyone I like and also advised to make an engraving on the back of the watch. What a great idea! I picked the watch with a new strap and engraving in 2 days. The watch looked perfect. My father loved the present.
