The Vintage Watch & A Pitch

Jonathan’s Watch Buyer has been delving into the vintage watch market more and more these past few months and we have been buying some amazing watches. In fact, we are becoming one of the best places in Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas to sell your vintage watch.  And, there is no question that our eBay store is the best place to buy a vintage watch, as we have the best prices and the best selection.

But, enough of the sales pitch.  Actually, I take that back.  This article is going to be ALL sales pitch.  I don’t do sales pitch often.  I like to write articles that inform and will help you decide what you want and know how to buy, but this time I want you to see what we have, and more importantly, I want you to bring your vintage Rolex watches, Patek Philippe watches, Cartier watches, Omega watches, Audemars Piguet watches and all other watches, including pocket watches to Jonathan’s Watch Buyer.

What Kind of Rolex Watch Style Defines You?

Rolex Watch StyleI’ve already said that you can call me Sporty.  And, I am sporty.  I don’t go for watches that are elegant; it’s just not my style.  I appreciate them and love to look at them and love to collect them for the value that they represent and even buy them for Jonathan’s Watch Buyer, but I don’t wear them.  I have these really big ham hands, and now I’m all scarred up, because my dang dog bit my thumb while I was teasing him, long story.

Anyway, because Rolex is my favorite of all watch brands and I am a bit biased when it comes to writing, collecting and discussing Rolex, I thought I would do a post about the various Rolex watch styles and then in the comments, I want you to tell me which Rolex watch style you are and why!

A. Lange & Söhne – ABC of Watch Brands

A. Lange & SohneIn order to be a watch buyer or a watch collector you need to be familiar with watch brands across the entire spectrum of watches, from super luxury watches to utilitarian watches.  There are benefits to owning watches from all price points and all spectrums, and I want to educate you on the differences so you can make your own informed decisions.

You see, when you collect or buy, you have to be a collector for yourself.  Whether you are collecting because it is an investment or because it is something you love to look it or want, you can’t collect because of how it will impress others.  I want to show you that there are options and you don’t have to be rich to be a collector, although I am also going to be showing you the luxury lines as well.

To start, I am going to show you a luxury watch line that is so stunning this is definitely a watch that no man should own.

The Pocket Watch

Pocket WatchTo me there is nothing more beautiful than a pocket watch, and I sometimes wish I lived during the days when men wore pocket watches on chains and hung them in their pockets.  I think pocket watches are elegant and beautiful, especially when they are well made and in fabulous vintage condition.

I have to admit that I don’t see a lot of pocket watches come across my desk as a watch buyer, but I did get to see the most fabulous pocket watch I believe Jonathan’s Watch Buyer has ever owned to date.  A Patek Philippe made for N. Matson & Co. in Chicago 18 kt. Gold pocket watch.

Rolex Milgauss – Rolex Watch Series

Rolex MilgaussHow can you NOT love a watch that has an orange lightning bolt for a second hand? The Rolex Milgauss is such a fine watch. Here’s what’s so cool about it. It not only looks fantastic, but it really is a neat watch with a very interesting history. I bought my Milgauss because I loved the heft of the watch and the way it looked. I’ll be honest and admit that I knew nothing about the science behind the watch when I purchased the watch. I owned this watch for about 2 months when a customer begged me to buy it off my wrist. Will I buy another one? Absolutely.

What Your Watch Style Says About You

I’m Sporty.  In fact, you can call me Sporty Sergio if you want.  My wife, she’s Fashion.  We are Sporty and Fashion Nuncio, and we named ourselves after our watch style.    Does this make you want to break out in a Spice Girls song? It does for me, because it reminds me of the Spice Girls and how each of their names were indicative of their personalities: Sporty, Scary, Ginger, Posh and Baby.

When you buy a watch, the watch style is also a function of your personality.  It says who you are.  Are you sporty or a fashion icon? Are you contemporary or traditional? No matter which watch style you do go with, or even if you like to switch off, what you are strapping on your wrist is going to say who you are that day and how you are feeling.

The Three-Finger Rule

Rolex Jubilee BraceletDid you know that you can tell a lot about your watch by just three fingers? You can. I’ve actually touched on this subject before on my other site, Jonathan’s Diamond Buyer, about if you need too.

The three-finger rule, which I made up by the way, is to see if your bracelet is in good shape or not. Now, I didn’t make up the way to see if your watch bracelet is in good shape, but I did make up the name, the three-finger rule.
