How to choose the right Vintage Watch

When choosing the right vintage watch for your collection, there are several important factors to consider. Here are some key tips to help you make an informed decision:



1. Understand What "Vintage" Means

2. Authenticity and Originality

  • Prioritize watches that have retained all original parts, meaning that everything on the timepiece came directly from the brand’s factory at the time it was manufactured. This contributes to the authenticity and value of the watch.

  • All my watches are available on Chrono24.com and I am a verified dealer meaning all my watches are authentic and original. See our 5 star reviews from our customers here.
