A Guide to Buying & Trading Vintage Watches

Vintage Movado WatchThe style of the watches are both a benefit and a drawback. This is because some vintage styles are fashionable today and others are not. Depending on the watch you are looking at, it can go either way. However, if you like the watch, then it can be a good purchase for you.

The Investment

Depending on the watch you buy, you could look at having something that will grow in value. This can make buying a piece of jewelry you love more of an investment. It can help soften the blow of paying for a vintage watch. There are many enthusiasts who will pay top dollar for high quality vintage watches which can make selling the watch easier. Just be sure you know what you are getting as well as the projected value of the watch.

If you like to have the newest and trendiest fashion accessories, then a vintage watch may be just the right option for you. These are very fashionable, especially if you have high quality name brand vintage watches. Not only will this complete your outfit but it can also be a great conversation starter when you are out and about or at parties.

The Price

This is one of the biggest downfalls of buying something vintage is the price. Some people will try to overcharge for the piece, which may simply be due to the fact that the piece has sentimental value to them. Either way, a stiff price may make it hard to get the piece you want.

Harder to Find

Another downside to think about with vintage watches when compared to new name brand watches is that they can be harder to find. This is because you can go to your local department store or jeweler to buy watches in Boca Raton.

You may get lucky and find that your local jeweler has vintage pieces. However, they will not get in multiple watches of the same brand so it is important that if you find something you like to buy it right then.


As with any used purchase, there is a fair amount of uncertainty about the purchase. You do not know if the piece will break when you get it home or in some cases whether it is even legitimate. This is why you should only buy from reputable dealers. There is also a huge market for frauds, which is why it is important to know just what you are getting with the watch you buy.

Not the Same Features

If you are looking for a watch with GPS or simply one that displays a digital time, then a vintage watch is not the watch to go with. Instead, you should go with a name brand watch that has the features you want. There are many great features that watches can have today.

Tips for Buying Vintage Watches

There are a few tips you should keep in mind when you are shopping for your vintage watch. This can help to make the process a little easier.
