Despite my previous transgressions, and when I did wear my watch, I’d always feel a tad more civilized — avoiding completely the clumsy fishing through pockets to find the phone & instead a confident, deft flick of the wrist & the time is told. The conclusion? The watch goes with me. Everywhere. So, naturally we love a good vintage time-piece, suggesting some romantic notion that the watch strapped to your wrist was passed down to your father — and upon some significant personal milestone, passed down to you or perhaps purchased after you finally landed that promotion at work.
Either way, a classic watch has, and will always, make an enviable gift no matter the occasion -- and yes, we get it. Vintage watches can set you back a grip. So not fortunate enough to have earned your grandfather’s beloved Submariner — and a few thousand away from buying your own or better yet, a gift for someone else.
We’re fans of Cool Vintage Watches. Granted, the site boasts a huge selection of timepieces that cost more than any car that most of us will ever own, they’ve also got an impressive selection of watches, all under $350 — and with a over a decade of dealing in some of the rarest time pieces online behind them & a six-month guarantee, it makes for some pretty fail-proof holidays shopping. Among our top picks comes in the guise of a Mido Multifort automatic. A near steal at $195 (on sale from $265), you might even have enough cash left-over to treat yourself. We're thinking this Zodiac 24-hour Aerospace at $340 fits the bill quite nicely & depending on your holiday bonus, you may even have enough change to order your friends a round when you’re ready to introduce them to your new-found civility. Whether gifting to impress, rounding out your own collection or merely passing time until the new season of House of Cards comes back to Netflix, the site is worth a look.
