Expert Advice: 5 Tips for Buying Vintage Watches

From Fratello Watches

Whether you’re buying out of sentimentality — say, you want to own a watch from the year of your birth — or simply for investment purposes, education is the most important factor when it comes to buying, or collecting, vintage timepieces. During my last decade-plus with FratelloWatches, I have received numerous e-mails from people who’ve struggled with their purchase of a vintage watch; in nearly every reply to these e-mails, I have offered five bullet-point guidelines, which I will now share with you.

Thanks for posting this one, Arty. It's one of the best, most straightforward how-to's on the interwebz for buying vintage watches. It's funny how the vintage bug bites you, as I think it's a little different from person to person. Sometimes it takes a few bites, but when the fever takes hold, it's tough to beat...and besides, you usually won't want to beat it!
