"My interest in watches took a new turn a few years ago when I became fascinated by antique models. I am fascinated by these beautiful pieces with their contained dimensions, in particular those of the great manufacturers Omega, Longines, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Rolex and Universal Genève. These watches, witnesses of a bygone golden age, convey an indescribable emotion. They make the forty-year-old me regret not having lived through those decades. Thanks to Pascal, an enthusiast with good taste, I was able to acquire a first beautiful vintage car, then a second, then a third. The choice remains difficult, as the watches on offer have a charm all their own, and are in excellent condition. But each time I leave with the conviction that I have found the right one. Discovering a rare model, admiring a patina, appreciating the silhouette of a case, lingering over the shape of a hand, evoking the beauty of a mechanism, all this is possible in Pascal's warm boutique, where time passes too quickly.

"I first met Pascal on a trip to Paris and Brussels. I am a collector of Jaeger-LeCoultre watches. Pascal was very kind and helpful. He has a great knowledge of watches and is very reliable. Last year he found me a Reverso I was looking for, I am very happy with it. Gentlemen, if you are looking for a watch, I recommend you to contact Pascal.”
"Pascal Karp has done a beautiful restoration of the Tissot Seastar. His intervention exceeds my expectations and the watch will be treasured for many, many years. Max Adams"
"I am always satisfied with my many purchases from Pascal. He often offers rare watches, in beautiful original condition and at reasonable prices. A true professional, welcoming, who knows how to offer something other than Rolex, Rolex and more Rolex..."
"Rare shop, with beautiful Vintage watches at all prices, Pascal is very professional and welcoming. I will definitely go back to him for other purchases. 22/10/21”
"I discovered Pascal during a trip to Brussels. I had a very precise idea of the look of the Omega watch I had been looking for for a few years. Pascal immediately proposed the model that I was likely to like. He even replaced the strap of the watch by the model corresponding to my criteria ... in order to obtain THE watch of my dreams. A crazy knowledge, calm, precise, and a very pleasant conversation, Pascal knows. It was a real pleasure to be able to count on a passionate and professional. Pascal, Thank you ! G.P.

"I have known Pascal for a few years now and was happy to see him open his own shop. Very quickly, in this new welcoming place, the bonds were woven. Pascal is a fine connoisseur and moreover not a profiteer; he is a lover of beautiful mechanics and one feels it very quickly as soon as one enters. Since then, we regularly have long and fruitful exchanges around this passion for beautiful machines. Thank you Pascal for your kindness and for these beautiful pieces that you made me discover. 28/01/20”
"I started collecting watches when I was just out of childhood, on the occasion of my communion, in the spring of 1970, when my grandfather, a watchmaker by trade and training, gave me a 100 year old ETERNA automatic in gold. I still have it, in perfect working order, with the original glass. And then, with Pascal Karp, who is just a little younger than me, I rediscovered the magic of these toquantes which are so poetic, with cogs, which are handled with delicacy and tenderness, because they are indispensable lovers. 16/01/21”
"Watches have the magic to unite people in this individualistic and digital age. When I met Pascal about 10 years ago, I was impressed not only by his passion, but also by his extensive knowledge and kindness. Needless to mention his professionalism, positive attitude and sense of humour! I can really recommend him as a serious and honest trader and look with passion. I hope we will have many opportunities to come, to share our passion for watches. If you are looking for an exquisite timepiece, you better call Pascal! Greetings from Brussels, MisterMo 18/01/21”
"Our friendship was born from a small partnership of sale - exchange - purchase of watches. Like any collector I had a precise idea of what I wanted to collect. I can never thank Pascal enough for his watchmaking personality and for introducing me to another style of buying. It was an enriching exchange from every point of view. 09/01/21”
"Pascal is a great professional who does not take the head with whom we can share other topics over coffee. All pretexts are good to go and spend a few moments of pure pleasure. Ygal March 16, 2021"
"What can I say....not the pleasure of having met a lover of timepieces....because at Pascal Karp, we don't talk about watches.... The love of aesthetics and beautiful mechanics are combined with judicious choices of rare models, at contained prices... without forgetting the passion for the history of each timepiece, shared with his interlocutor... A timepiece is the expression of the fleeting nature of time and a revelation of the personality of the person wearing it... Between friends, time flies...for sure, Pascal, we will meet again... "Breaking the watch doesn't stop time from running away", Swiss proverb, 1905. "Man invented the watch, but God invented time", Africa in proverbs, 1905. February 11, 2021"
"Ah Pascal, a man like no other, passionate, purist, sharp, with an eye as sharp as a Berkel blade, he talks about watches like a cook talks about cooking at low temperature or a winemaker talks about the tears of his wine on a barely served glass. Our meeting was quick and strong, like two completely different enthusiasts of the current watchmaking world who also understand each other with the same vision: "what could be more vulgar than going to a restaurant and seeing the same watch on everyone's wrist"... Difference is Pascal's strength, a breed of man on the verge of extinction that must be strongly supported, as he does in the research of his watches. In a word, you can trust him with your eyes closed! Keep it up man, it's not easy and if it was everyone would do it. Don't change anything ! 02/02/2021”
"Every great dealer is above all a passionate explorer in search of beautiful objects, history and sharing. His knowledge of antique watches, his very good taste and his excellent listening skills make Pascal an outstanding guide in the fascinating world of 20th century timepieces. 29/01/21”
"Pascal is a collector in love, whose main goal is to share his passion for beautiful timepieces. His main goal is to make you happy with watches whose aesthetics should never be at the expense of a beautiful clockwork (always revised). He is one of the only ones to offer a two-year warranty on an antique watch, so his confidence in the reliability of his timepieces allows you to buy with peace of mind (and, what's more, always at very reasonable prices). My advice, go there "with your eyes closed".
