David Hall - Founder of Hallandladdco vintage watch store










 The Founder

 David is a GIA certified gemologist and the founder of  Hallandladdco. He began his career in the watch business working as a diamond grader at the world-renowned Gem Trade Lab. Later, in 1994, he bought the historical landmark, Finleys Jewelers, a reputable store founded in 1924, Redondo Beach, California. He preserved the store's historic reputation for over a decade, servicing thousands of customers and even keeping a 4.5 star yelp rating for the remaining years of his ownership. In 2012, he sold the property and retired from brick and mortar retail. Deciding to focus more exclusively on what he loves most, watches.

 Finally, in 2015, he founded the company Hallandladdco, which became one of the most top rated stores on eBay, with around 900 watches sold, a 100% positive feedback rating, and nearly a thousand testimonies from happy buyers and sellers. Recently, the business intelligence firm, Marketplacepulse, gave the company a 5/5 rating. In addition, he's created a great following on Instagram, reaching nearly a thousand followers with now several hundred sales, all personally done over the phone and in person.
