Whether you enjoy the elegant glossy look of modern day time measuring devices, or the elaborate designs of times past, collecting watches and clocks can be a very amusing hobby. Many people that share passion for timepieces collect watches and clocks. While some limit their collections to either specifically clocks or watches, there are many duel collectors that find them both charming.

Here is what Mr Donkey recommends to get going:

Make a decision
Are you are going to collect watches, clocks or just timepieces in general. Often hobbyists narrow their collections by time era, design, designer, country or material. Others simply collect what they like, creating a a good mix of timepieces.

Purchase a guide
Purchase guides for watch and clock collectors. These will help you determine the market value of a specific timepiece. The guides will also be valuable in helping to date timepieces that you find on your shopping trips.

Research - general
Learn about the different types of clocks and watches you wish to collect.

Research - local
Visit your cityís local antique and collectible shops, jewelry stores or any other specialty stores that may have a timepiece that would catch your eye. rake through your local flea markets and yard sales. You might find a watch or clock that you will want to add to your collection.

Research - online
This is good for people who live in smaller towns. Browse online auctions, antique and collectible stores, and watch and clock websites, searching for a special timepiece to add to your collection. We highly recommend checking out the donkey catalog on the right.

Online Groups
Join a watch, clock or general timepiece collectors group. When you join a group of like-minded collectors, you have a place to share your collection stories, learn about events and meet other people that share similar interests.

Most vintage and antique clocks or watches can be repaired by a reputable watch or clock maker.

Here is what Mr Donkey finds very important.
Mr Donkey says: Be aware that there are many fake name brand watches. Take your time and do your research to learn how to identify a fake. Especially with the advanced online world you need to learn how to identify the authentic ones.
