Everyone understands the value of vintage timepieces, especially when it comes to the classics. Sourcing them however is another matter entirely. Not only are the watches themselves hard to find in good condition, but you can all too often be unsure of provenance. You could however just go to Vintage & Prestige.
The online boutique specialises in pre-owned watches and luxury accessories and has, for the summer season, expertly curated a selection of seasonally-appropriate timepieces.
These range from the instantly recognisable Rolex Submariner in a stainless-steel case or a Rolex GMT Master II with a red and blue “Pepsi” bezel, all the way through to a Cartier Santos Moonphase (a 1980s/1990s icon) and a rare Pierre Kunz Cupidon tri-retrograde in rose gold.
Of course, there’s much more at vintageandprestige.com than these, a veritable treasure trove of collector’s pieces. But with the kind of weather we’ve been having, what else would you go for? If it feels like the golden era of the Riviera, you should dress for it – watch included.
