Hi guys,

just joined this forum as I relocated to KL for work.. have been on the vintage path, and was also wondering about finding nice vintages here in KL/Selangor region. All my vintages were purchased online, except for 1 back in spore.

If there are any shops here in KL/Selangor, would love to hear about it too! I did visit Berjaya times square, with a couple of watch resellers at the 6th floor... there was one shop(sorry, I can't remember the name of the shop) that the owner had an awesome personal collection of Rolex vintages but sadly none of them were for sale...

Just to share... for me, I trawl RPM, Chrono 24, VRM, and the rolex forum in the US. I prefer to deal with trusted dealers with good references as vintages requires alot of research and homework.. But a fun 'hunt' nonetheless!

Welcome to malaysia bro.
Try explore Amcorp Mall, especially weekends, perhaps you could find some nice vintages there.

Watch lim is great.  He is quick,  has a good range of watches and would you believe it,  trustworthy.  Go for it.

Any idea if those watches being sold in the flea market in Amcorp Mall are any good? Saw some decent vintage watches there but am not an expert to tell if the watches are genuine or not.
Feedback will be greatly appreciated.
