About Us

In the 1960’s Alex Fossner and his son Peter left Czechoslovakia, when the Russians invaded that country, to follow the American Dream. He opened Fossner Timepieces on the upper eastside of New York in 1969. He soon had a large following due to his fine quality workmanship and respected work ethic. Within a few years his store was filled with many great timepieces and other horological works of art. Alex worked in his store until Peter was ready to take over the business. Peter met Jeff Morris at a Sotheby’s watch auction in January, 1980, and they have been collaborating ever since selling fine watches. They incorporated in 1986 as J & P Timepieces.

The Company is now well known around the world, including at Sotheby’s and Christie’s auction houses. Jeff and Peter serve as consultants to collectors, museums and auction houses worldwide. Both of them are members of the American IWJG and the European WTF. One or the other can always be found at any prominent watch auction around the world. Jeff and Peter have acquired a broad selection of exquisite pre-owned and new watches including wristwatches, pocket watches, chronographs, repeaters, perpetual calendar, moon phase movements and other fine timepieces.

They specialize in vintage and like new: Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Rolex, A. Lange & Sohne and many other much sought after brands of today as well as distinctive styles from companies of days gone by. Simply stated, Jeff and Peter buy and sell the finest watches in the world. “We enjoy an enviable reputation among our clients, collectors and competitors for the wide selection and quality of our watches. We supply the world’s finest watches, from brand new items to fully restored vintage pieces at very competitive prices.”
