'Tis the Season: Vintage Watches

The HOTY (a.k.a. Husband of the Year) has a watch collection. Some are fancy. Some are not. But he loves everything he’s got.

For super special occasions, I like to add to his collection. And I always try to engrave the extra special ones. I happen to think that monogramming and engraving are wonderfully personal and memorable ways to celebrate an occasion.

Though I wouldn’t necessarily pick this one up for him, I sure do like it. Okay, okay, you got me. This particular one is on MY Santa wish list!  Check out this pink face. Come on. Is this not the cutest watch you’ve ever seen?!?

Though I doubt that I’ll see it under the tree, it makes me feel happy to think about the person who will be wearing it one day.

In case you were wondering how, exactly, to buy a vintage watch, Men’s Journal offers a great guide:

  1. Know your movements
  2. Understanding complications
  3. What to ask
  4. Where to buy them
  5. Buy this watch; Profit
  6. Why Switzerland?
  7. The Rolex Submariner
  8. Five Holy Grails
  9. How to Protect Your Investment

Watches, especially vintage ones, are a very special Silver Lined gift!

But what minutes!  Count them by sensation, and not by calendars, and each moment is a day.
