As a collector of anything and every vintage, the only thing I am missing is an amazing vintage watch and after visiting the Breitling store in Vegas I have been putting a lot of thought into investing in my own little timeless treasure. However, I have had such a hard time finding a modern watch that really suits my vintage style. Of course I would prefer a vintage watch but it is so hard to find the right one in the right condition that still works. Trust me, I have been searching allllll over for modern watches that have a vintage look but they don’t quite meet my expectations. With no luck I decided to stick to vintage and came across this website called Chrono24 where I discovered a plethora of the most beautiful vintage watches that WORK. Chrono24’s range of vintage watches date back to 1920s and I am blown away by the creativity and elegance of their selection. They carry a wide range of watches both old and new from all over the world and the best part is that they give you the best descriptions and history about every piece. I dabbled into the 1920s-1950s section and most of my favorite designs are by Rolex but I found one or two by Certina and Jaeger-LeCoultre that had me swooning. Sure I could covet myself a brand new Rolex but why would I if I could just invest in a vintage one that is cheaper and more unique in design? Maybe I am just a vintage snob lol. However, can you blame me? Just take a look at these awesome vintage watches I found while browsing through the Chrono24 website:
Rolex is one of the top well-known watch brands in the world founded by Hans Wildorf and Alfred Davis in London, England in 1905.

I am in love with this Vintage Rolex circa 1960s and it comes in the original box with the original warranty! What an elegant piece of history ❤
This art deco yellow gold vintage Rolex is incredible. I love the typography of arabic numerals. It has to be somewhere between the 1940s to the 60s. I WANT IT.This Rolex is from the 1920s and what a BEAUTY. It is rose gold and I love the ornate design of the wristlet.Certina Kurth Frères SA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker company founded in Grenchen, 1888, by Adolf and Alfred Kurth, and currently an affiliate company of the Swatch Group.
I am lovin the look of this Certina yellow gold watch from the 1960s. I love the silver dials and for some reason it kind of reminds me of the Cadillac emblem.Jaeger-LeCoultre is a luxury watch and clock manufacture based in Le Sentier, Switzerland that dates back to the first half of the nineteenth century. The brand has hundreds of inventions and over a thousand calibres to its name, including the world’s smallest calibre, the world’s most complicated wristwatch and a timepiece of near-perpetual movement. Today, Jaeger-LeCoultre offers eight distinct collections of timepieces and maintains multiple partnerships in diverse sectors, such as marine preservation, motorsports and polo. The company has been a fully owned subsidiary of the Swiss luxury group Richemont since 2000.Love the 1920s feel of this Jaeger-LeCoultre watch and it may very well be from that time period based on my experience with vintage. This beauty is 18k gold with a 14mm case and has a gold bezel with set with 8 round cut diamonds. I’d accept this over an engagement ring any day!
