Do we really still need wristwatches nowadays? Of course not! But as a clever sales lady once told me, you don’t need a watch but you definitely need a Rolex, and of course, if it’s a vintage watch, the better so!
Owning a good watch (or several ones for that matter) is like wearing good shoes or a designer bag, you don’t need much more than that to convey your sense of style and elegance. It is the perfect accessory for anyone who knows how to be effortlessly chic!
According to Forbes, wearing a wristwatch shows that you are a serious professional, organized and reliable. Furthermore, during a meeting or any boring dinner, a quick glance at your watch is a lot classier and, much more subtle, than taking your cell phone out to check the time.
Men like wearing watches because, when it comes to accessories, they aren’t left with many options, so what could be better than wearing a classic and elegant IWC, a timeless Vacheron Constantin or an iconic Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, that was worn for the first time on the lunar surface in 1969?
You can find your dream vintage watch browsing at auction houses or antique shops around the world.
Here are some of the best and reliable online shops to buy vintage watches:
