Vintage Watches

Vintage watches can be defined as mechanical watches made prior to the
1970's quartz revolution.  Because of the popularity of mass produced
quartz watches, most watch companies that produced vintage mechanical
watches have since gone out of business.  Several other companies that
were once bold leaders in the watchmaking industry have consolidated
and been absorbed into a few large watch houses that share mass
produced parts.  Unfortunately, they now bear little resemblance to the
proud pioneering companies that originally bore their name.  With very few
exceptions, they just don't make them like they used to.

If you'd like to learn more about vintage wrist watches and antique wrist
watches, this website will give you a glimpse of what the watchmaking
industry offered before craftsmanship and skilled watchmaking gave way to
mass production and plastic disposable watches.   

Why Buy or Restore Vintage Watches?

Some are fortunate enough to have antique watches handed down to them
as family heirlooms from father to son or mother to daughter.  Others seek
them out for their vintage appearance and nostalgic charm.  Some are
drawn to their intricate mechanical workings that control complicated
chronograph, calendar, alarm, moonphase or tidal data.  Some buy them
as quality investments or for their fancy solid gold case design.

Vintage watches afford us the opportunity to wear or collect something
truly rare and unique and yet at the same time, magically familiar.  Vintage
watches are for those who seek quality, craftsmanship and style as a
reflection of a lost era, a lost art.  

For all these reasons, antique watches are becoming more, and more
popular today as people look to the past for something that they cannot
buy new at the mega-mall or department store.
