While some of our earlier Historical Horology articles have brought to light some older aspects of our hobby, today, we’ll zoom in to something that’s a little more practical, and potentially of more immediate interest – how to buy a vintage watch.
The article in question (link) popped up over on Gear Patrol, written by someone most of you should all be familiar with – Jason Heaton (@jasonheaton). In the course of the article, he covers why you might want to opt for a vintage piece, rather than spending the same dollar amount on a brand new piece.
Along with the Rolex articles we posted up earlier (link), I think that these really can give you some food for thought when in comes time to start thinking about what you might want to save up for – vintage or brand new. Definitely food for thought!
