History


Watch Central was established in 1998 by Alex Vileshin. At the age of 15 Alex became a watchmaker’s apprentice and discovered he had a natural talent for the trade. Later at the age of 17, Alex immigrated to New York from Lithuania and was hired by Tourneau, the largest authorized watch dealer in the United States. During his 15 year career with Tourneau, Alex was trained in Switzerland by several watch factories and luxury watch specialists. Taking this knowledge back to NYC, he greatly improved upon customer service and operations as a Service Manager. Alex transformed the business for Tourneau and developed a highly successful service center adding services and value for customers daily.

Alex later began his own watch repair services company with the sole focus being to provide honest and helpful support to customers who trust him with their prized luxury watches. He has staffed his team with watchmakers who truly love working with watches and in partnership closely with Alex. As a result of integrity and highly ethical business practices, Watch Central has enjoyed decades of new and repeat customers.
