Meet who is behind the Paul Duggan Company

Paul Duggan

I started in the field of horology in the mid 1970’s as a hobbyist. My first interest was collecting and repairing antique clocks. A friend introduced me to the NAWCC and my interest soon expanded into watches.

After several years of doing repair work for local collectors and dealers, I started buying and selling. In the early days, my specialty was buying complete contents of workshops. This was a tremendous source for tools, parts and timepieces. Soon my hobby became a full-time occupation, and in 1986 I started the Paul Duggan Company, Inc., in a spare bedroom. Today we have grown to a staff of five and have a retail showroom in Boston’s historic Jeweler’s Building.

Our website was born in 1998 in the early days of internet watch trading. Today, we feature an average of 180 watches on our site, with weekly updates between 10 and 20 watches. We ship worldwide and promote our site on an international level. Our main focus is on high-grade, pre-owned modern and vintage watches. We feature a large selection of Patek Philippe, Rolex, Lange, Cartier and other top brands.

We are always buying and can offer fair market value for your fine wrist and pocket watches. Our consignment service is used by many collectors to sell and upgrade their collections. As watch specialists, we can offer our expertise and 25 years of experience to assist you in buying one watch or building a collection.
