Value of Vintage Timepieces: Buying, wearing and collecting vintage timepieces is definitely more than just about buying a watch. Why would anyone want to collect old watches when the new stuff is far superior in terms of finishing and engineering? Everyone has his or her own reasons. Well, to me, vintage timepieces are by itself a piece of history, a piece of time, not just a timepiece. To me, the value is in owning an object from another period that has witnessed decades of histories and perhaps been related to some important event. For example, I loved my vintage Omega Michael Schumacher because of it's connection with the history of racing. One collector I knew loved his Speedmaster Professional because of its direct connection to the space program and the moon landings. Secondly, though not as durable as new timepieces, vintage watches have a higher collectors' appeal because of their rarity. Vintage watches are much more exclusive and elusive, not for their prices, but for the small number of collectors who wear and collect them. However, there are considerations you need take into account when buying, wearing and collecting vintage timepieces. Firstly, you can have a reliable, accurate daily watch that was made several decades ago. But in terms of finishing, engineering and an overall feel of quality, new watches will surely be superior. So are the prices of the new models. Finding a watch that is more than 20 years old with the original box and papers is almost impossible and requires a miracle to find one that is unmolested and that comes complete with its original packaging and papers. Thirdly, vintage watches are vintage and old timepieces. The machine and mechanism will somehow have its imperfection due to years of usage. The condition of the piece, cae, dial, winding, glass, finishing will have hairline scratches. If you can’t understand the above, then vintage probably isn’t for you and its better off for you to stick to new pieces. It takes a particular personality to enjoy vintage collecting. Buying, wearing, collecting and loving vintage watches is all about passion — it can’t be rationalized or made logical. If you think about it, owning any watches is not logical anyway especially when you can tell the time with your mobile phone anyway.
