Collecting watches, as a hobby, can bring out a bit of a bi-polar nature in many people. Yes, we’ve got watches that we might hold up as an ideal, or grail; but we also realize that we need watches to wear in an everyday manner.
This is where a company like Throne Watches can come into play; they’re offering up an eclectic variety of “vintage” watches (scratching a particular itch for one set of collectors) paired up with a variety of different Horween straps (hooray for high-quality leather).
Now, while these are watches of a vintage nature, these aren’t the marque brands you might think of. Instead, I’m seeing some Casios, Russian brands, and a whole slew of “no-name” models listed in their current inventory. To my way of thinking, you’re really going through this inventory as a way to get a Horween strap, with the added bonus of a interesting-looking watch.
With prices starting at $80 (and I don’t think I saw anything over $100), this is really quite a nice value in my opinion. I’m also a fan of the fact that old watches are getting new life breathed into them. Whether you’re looking to add a watch to your case, or picking up a more unique gift for someone else, Throne Watches is worth a perusal.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
