Meet Nikolaus Libby: The Passionate Founder

At The Watch Preserve, our journey is not just about vintage watches; it's a narrative deeply woven with the passion and expertise of our founder, Nikolaus Libby. With a story that began when he stumbled upon a vintage timepiece at a garage sale at the young age of 15, Nik's life took a captivating turn. Enchanted by the intricate craftsmanship and the stories these timepieces carried, he embarked on a horological odyssey that would forever shape his life and ultimately lead to the establishment of The Watch Preserve.

Nik's journey is a testament to the profound connection between people and their timepieces. As the driving force behind our shop, his unparalleled knowledge, devotion, and boundless enthusiasm for vintage watches permeate every aspect of The Watch Preserve. When you visit our shop, you're not just stepping into a store; you're entering Nik's world of horological wonders, where the rich history of timekeeping comes to life.
