Building Your Ideal Vintage Watch Collection

Loyal readers of this blog will remember that I just recently discussed appropriate jewelry wear for men of status and those who select their pieces for wear in a professional setting. During the course of that post, we also touched on the watch collections that a large number of men build up. The goal of these collections is the availability of the right style for the right setting – all while making a statement. What could an ideal collection look like?

For the Boardroom: Art Deco Longines Yellow Gold Watch with a White Dial 

Made by Tiffany & Co., this is a 1940s Art Decoshowpiece. It features 14k yellow gold and presents an original domed crystal. The one thing that is new is the alligator leather band. Longines Wittnauer designed the interior and movement. This watch is easy to read but shows you to be the man who stands out from the crowd. After all, how many folks own a manual wind watch these days?

For the Weekend: Rolex Oyster Precision Steel Watch 

Wear this watch when taking out your date, visiting mom for Sunday dinner or heading for the clubs. The 1957 Rolex is a study of chronometer perfection paired with understated elegance. The band is fashioned from new pigskin. The case measures 37.7mm in width with the crown. From top to bottom, the measurement is 41.6mm.

For Athletic Pursuits: Breitling Chrono-Matic Automatic 

Head out to the gym, the ocean, the mountains or the bike path with your special edition Breitling Chrono-Matic automatic watch. Attached to a new crocodile band, the wealth of the functions is sure to delight you.

For Formal Functions: Patek Philippe Calatrava Wrist Watch 

If you are a frequent visitor to cultural institutions, music productions and similar events, the Patek Philippe Reference 2484 Calatrava has just the right mix of elegance and style.
