Vintage watches are steadily gaining in popularity. It's not hard to see why: they're the perfect way to add a touch of personality and history to a look. But with the market becoming more and more crowded, how do you go about buying a vintage watch that's right for you? We'll walk you through the process, from finding a reputable seller to inspecting the watch for authenticity.
Vintage watches are a great option for anyone looking for a unique timepiece. With so many mass-produced watches on the market today, it can be nice to find something with a bit of history behind it. Not to mention, vintage watches generally cost a fraction of the price of newer models. If you have $3,000 to spend, you could drive down to Bloomingdale’s and walk out with a quartz TAG Heuer or Longines that would serve you well for many years. Or you could buy a 1962 LeCoultre Memovox with an in-house manufacture movement featuring a mechanical alarm complication from one of the most respected names in watchmaking. The latter watch will be more unique, garnering a lot more looks and compliments than a TAG that half your co-workers are wearing; on top of that, it will likely increase in value over time.
