The one to watch February 3, 2017 – Posted in: General – Tags: antiques, investment, investment piece, vintage watches
Author Ian Fleming said in his book “Casino Royale” he is convinced that “a gentleman’s choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Savile Row suit”. Classical pieces stand the test of time for men and women alike. This applies not just to furniture and art, but a league of watches that have made the word “timeless” literally!.
A watch is a subtle window into the wearer’s identity beyond what they are wearing at that very moment. A reminder that time does not stand still, and is important. Consider your first watch – whether real or a toy – and the history crammed around that moment. Are you still smiling when you think back to that vivid moment when you slipped the cool metal over your wrist and fastened the clasp, before holding it at arms length to admire?
Watches are currency beyond a bank account, and a wearable vintage piece is taken into the modern age with great ease. A watch could be a celebratory buy, or a milestone achieved, a personal reward, a reflection of style, or a heirloom handed down. Always a considered acquisition to stand the test of time, with the age old workman’s quality, a guarantee of continued usage over a long period of time.
