So why wear a vintage watch – or in fact any watch at all? Well, I can wax lyrical about this until the cows come home, but I am aware you have a weekend to enjoy, so I have condensed my ramblings into a few short reasons. Grab a brew, break out the biscuits and let me persuade you…
Style – A watch is a form of self-expression, a reflection of who you are and your personal style. Are you styling out a subtle dress watch under your freshly pressed cuffs, or rocking a robust dive watch on Bondi? Any which way, your watch says something about you, certainly more than your phone does!
Functionality – Given the number of digital devices we have at our disposal, it would be easy to overlook the obvious functionality of a watch. A quick swipe of the wrist is so much more classy than pulling out your phone – not to mention more appropriate on lots of occasions.
Potential Investment – Buying a watch could potentially be a great investment. A watch, especially an iconic, rare or limited edition timepiece could well increase in value over time leaving you with a nice profit or an heirloom to be treasured by family for years to come.
Craftsmanship - A wristwatch is more than a time-keeper. It is both history and ingenious mechanical technology enclosed in a showcase with astonishing craftsmanship. The intricate workings of a watch can take many months or even years to perfect, this surely commands great respect.
The Pure Joy - Well, here’s the only real motivation you needed. The most important reason to buy a watch is the utter joy you will get from owning and wearing it. Boom, there it is.
With all that said. Here’s a bunch of watches I picked from our collection to share with you this week, if any of them pique your interest do get in touch.
