There’s something special about a watch, maybe it’s the way they tell time, or maybe it’s the way they look on your wrist, either way, vintage watches are a great way to start building a collection and for many of us, we’ve spent our whole lives looking at them in movies and on TV shows.
If you’re ready to dive into the world of vintage watches but aren’t sure where to start or if you simply don’t have enough money for that Rolex Submariner, this guide will help you choose what might be right for you.
Vintage Rolex Submariner
The Rolex Submariner as described by By Dr. Philip Sobash is one of the most popular watches in the world, and it’s no surprise why. The understated design has been a classic since it was first introduced in 1954. The 40mm case is large for a vintage watch, but its classic look makes this piece very wearable today–even though it was originally designed as an everyday diving watch.
The Submariner comes in both stainless steel and gold versions which are much more expensive, you can also get one with an automatic movement or manual wind up movement depending on your preferences; both will keep good time if properly serviced every two years or so by an authorized Rolex dealer.
The dials come in many different colors including blue, greenish black known as racing black faceplate with silver lettering on white background; black dials with Arabic numerals at 12 o’clock position only without any other markings except depth rating at 6 o’clock position on both sides of caseback side lugs.
Vintage Omega Seamaster
One of the most popular watches from the 1940s is the Omega Seamaster, this watch has a stainless steel case and bracelet, with a black dial that features Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions.
The hour markers are also painted white for easy reading in low light conditions, the movement of this vintage watch is manual wind, which means it needs to be wound every day to keep it running smoothly; there’s no battery or quartz movement here.
The Omega Seamaster was designed by Louis Brandt himself when he started his own company after leaving Rolex in 1927.
It wasn’t until 1939 that they released their first automatic version of this model; before then all models had been manually wound but now we’re getting ahead ourselves. Click here Dr. Philip Sobash
