Three Affordable Vintage Watches for sale

Postby koimaster » May 26th 2019, 11:20pm

Does it sometimes feel like vintage watches have left the roots of their appeal behind with escalating prices? The internet made once humble, historical watches more widely available and easily searchable, but it also educated a new generation of voracious watch lovers — as well as created buzz around certain brands, models, and genres, and collecting in general. Well, it takes some work, but affordable vintage watches worth buying can still be found. Here are three such mechanical beauties, all selling for under $400.

The Caravelle and LIP are overpriced, IMO. The Dugena isn't a bad deal, considering that it has been serviced.

EDIT: As it has been pointed out to me, the Dugena might in fact be a lemon, as the case appears to be identical to that used in 1960s Tissot PR516 Seastar divers. It may be that the cases came from the same supplier... Or it's a Tissot case with fake Dugena markings. I can't exactly call it out as a franken/fake, not without a shot of the inner side of the case back.
