For ModernMan.com I was asked to write a guide on how to buy vintage watches. It was an interesting challenge to construct a comprehensive yet coherent guide for people who are both watch lovers and novices. I am pretty happy with the result. Check out my vintage watch buying guide on ModernMan.com here.
I'm doing research on an old Omega watch I have. I stumbled on this article and it just so happens the watch is identical to the one in the picture up top. When I click on the redirect to the article however it appears they changed their photos around and that watch isn't pictured. Can you tell me what watch that is? Best I can gather it's an Omega Automatic Seamaster Calendar with a champagne coloured dial? I'm a watch novice. Just wondering what it is I have and what I should do with!
Thank you for lending your valuable expertise. I have a pertinent warning: Be very cautious when dealing with every merchant, vendor, etc. I asked a well known mid-
town Manhattan vintage watch dealer to look for the Breitling Chronomat circa 1945.
The slobs never followed up, & I later learned they may have misrepresented a vintage
Rolex they sold to a former friend.
