Our Story

Our mission

We eat, sleep, and breathe vintage watches! As experts in the field, we are here to provide an experience that is as easy and straightforward as possible, using what we have learned from our very own experiences. 

Oliver & Clarke was founded on the principles of bringing interesting, rare, and exceptional quality timepieces to the market at a reasonable market price, while striving to provide the most transparent buying experience within the vintage industry.

founder

Linden

Linden founded Oliver & Clarke when he was just 15 – driven by a love of mechanical watches and desire to change the way that people bought them. During a trip to London with his father Linden skipped the typical tourist sites and spent days scouring the Burlington Arcade where he would discover his passion for vintage timepieces. This trip proved to be a defining moment for Linden and the inspiration for his future career. Linden founded Oliver and Clarke to offer transparency and regulated prices in the inflated world of vintage timepieces. Through years of research and experience, Linden was able to create an exceptional evolving collection of watches. “You live with them, get to know them for a period, and then sell them,” Lazarus says. Oliver and Clarke is founded on the philosophy of offering only the most exquisite and rare examples of vintage watches selected by Linden and the O&C team for their extraordinary condition and uniqueness.
