12/19/2011 They have the largest selection of watches I have ever seen! They say they have over 20,000 watches and if you look around you will believe it. I looked around for about 1 hour. I came back the next day and bought a Breitling and a Patek Phillipe watch. The price I figured was about half the retail price which was really fair. While I was there, the place was really busy, they were buying and selling everything! The purchased an Andy Warhol painting and a signed Babe Ruth baseball. They also sold and Abraham Lincoln letter and appraised a collection of original World Series rings! One of the other clients was saying he was there when James Bond (Daniel Craig) bought a couple of watches there a few weeks ago!! It's really a wild place and sometimes crazy busy, but you will always get a really good deal. They also buy anything and I thing they pay very fair prices. Overall I would state the following: The selection is the largest in the world. The prices are excellent. The place especially when crowed is a little small. The items are not the that organized. The experts are sometimes busy, but when available will answer any questions you will have. They do go out of their way to try to make you happy. Overall a very unique experience and recommended.

I have been trying to scrounge up all of my jewelry and antiques left to me by my family for some cash. I searched around all of these guys with good placement on google and just got crook after crook. Everyone was telling me the same thing, "its not worth much, I dont want to buy it but if you really want to get rid of it I guess I'll take it for $500"...BS!!!. Then I found these guys on the second floor of a building on 47th street. Immediately, they were warm and welcomed me into their Humble office looking into the street. I showed him some of my gold chains, watches and a picture of a rug and lamp i needed to get rid of. He said he would be happy to to make me an offer and recommend i shop around also to know he had the best price. No pressure, great information and I ended up getting $4800 dollars right on the spot. Great guys, will definitely use them and recommend them again.
My name is Terry. 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.
Sandra from Springfield, NJ. I had some art works that was purchased by my ex-husband a while ago. I don’t understand anything in arts and I always personally hated that pictures but just throwing them away seemed like a waste. I heard about the Plaza from the ad on a radio and decided to invite an appraiser home in order to sell the paintings. The appraiser came the next day and offered a good price for the pictures. I also had some old gold jewelry at home that I don’t wear anymore. The appraiser advised me to bring it in the store. He said I will be able to get a good deal for trading in my old jewelry for a new jewelry or watch. I’ve already made an appointment for coming in on Wednesday. Considering all the positive reviews, it should be amazing experience. I’m looking forward to it.
They said the have over 25000 watches!! and if you look around you believe them!! I looked at their Omega watches. They showed me over 1000 Omega watches!! Do you understand, over 1000 just Omega watches! I didn't there are that many in the whole New York City! They has styles and models I never new ever existed! They were all in perfect condition including many old ones from the 1920's. Everything they sell is guaranteed. Their prices are quite good and they buy and take trade ins. They also have an expert appraiser on staff. I bought and Omega and a vintage Rolex for less the expected to pay just for the Omega!! Will definitely be back!
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'm new and clueless to this city so I went on yellow pages to look for jewelry spots to sell some of my gold and global gold and silver seems a good choice to stop by.I got to their suite in a nice building which didn't look sketchy to me and when I went inside,I was greeted by a bunch of friendly workers and professonal atmosphere.A guy name Amit was able to help me out, he checked all my gold and some silverware, weight it out in front of me, and gave me a great offer which I accepted. I would definitely comeback here because they made me felt safe and at home.
This is the place to sell your Gold and Silver. State of the art facility in the way they assay your gold and weigh it. First they test it, melt it dill holes in the ingot to get shavings and then put the shavings under a computer that accurately tells your the purity of the metal, whether its gold or silver. And they display the spot price right in front of you. A very honest place to sell your metals. Have been there 3 times and will be going for my 4th . I go cross country to sell to them as they pay the highest price I can get.
