What’s our story?
The story of VintageTimeWatches comprises of three main principles: Discover – Explore – Relive
Back in 2009, I received my first vintage Heuer watch as a gift for my birthday. It was a rare Heuer Monaco Automatic Chronograph received from my grandfather, who like me has a keen interest in Formula 1. This sparked something inside of me, a passion to find and discover the world of vintage swiss watches. Growing up, my grandfather had always worn many prestigious brands such as Omega, Rolex, Heuer, Cartier, Breitling and many more, so it’s something I have always been around.
I started to search for and learn about rare and hard to find vintage watches, I was intrigued by the mechanical Swiss movements and how they worked. I spent a lot of time at vintage markets and auctions, and soon realised I had a knack for spotting a good deal. I started with just a few, buying and then reselling online. I built up a vast collection this way, with many Swiss brands, even branching out to the likes of Rado, Raymond Weil, Tissot, Movado, Bulova, anything I could find really, it was an addiction!
Immersed in the world of collectable and vintage timepieces, I decided to take it to the next step and launched the website you are now on. Since then our passion for vintage watches has only grown, engaging with collectors from around the world and sharing our favourite models with each other, be it an Omega Seamaster, a Longines Admiral or a rare Bulova Accutron with a unique tuning fork movement.
So, the purpose of this website is to allow you to relive the history of these famous Swiss brands, and perhaps even allow you to be a part of it by purchasing your very own timepiece from days long gone. Perhaps there was a watch you loved when you were younger but never bought, let’s say a Cartier Tank, and you see it on our website today, fulfil that dream to own your favourite vintage watch today.
We have over 300 vintage and retro timepieces in our collection, mostly swiss brands such as Breitling, Bvlgari, Bulova, Cartier, Certina, Christian Dior, Girard Perregaux, Gucci, Hamilton, Longines, Maurice Lacroix, Movado, Omega, Orient, Oris, Rado, Raymond Weil, Rolex, Tag Heuer, Tissot, Tudor and Zodiac.
