Why a vintage watch
"Préterito Imperfecto"; The imperfection of the past or how time has left traces ...
A vintage watch, in addition to telling the time, tells a unique, unrepeatable, unique story ...
It is in your hand to continue that story, now as the protagonist.
Until recently there were not many who enjoyed watches entered in years and tanned in a thousand battles. Now it is a trend, and from now on this way of understanding this time will have more specific weight.
A new watch, just out of the factory, with its seals, can be an extraordinary piece, that barely deviates in its movement and that the brightness of each of its pieces illuminates an entire room, but will only tell a story from that moment on. Ahead. It has no past, no travel, no vital experience, no soul...
There is a concept of Japanese origin, wabi-sabi, which deals with "the beauty of imperfection", on the footprint left by objects over time and their continued use. It is an authentic way to appreciate what it surrounds us without having to be what we have released.
A watch may have a patina on its dial that makes it irresistibly unique. There are watches that lose the tritium of the hands, or oxidize, or lose strength in a certain area. There are diver watches that walk with the rotating bezel marked, worn out at times, and that tells us who used it for so long. It is possible that these watches, due to the passage of time, have lost precision, they may delay or advance the time a few minutes a month, but ... What does that matter when you look at the watch, 90% of the time you do not see the time, just watch the watch!
the 40s and 70s (time we consider vintage), almost everything that we understand within the asymmetrical world of watches was designed. We all like the original, the authentic original. First, the pioneers, the icons...
Most of these pieces also have a quality and inspiring storytelling. They are iconic watches with legendary stories. For less than 1,000€, hopefully, you can have on your wrist the first watch that came into the space of Yuri Gagarin's wrist, or for example, the first watch expressly made for diving; A zodiac SeaWolf.
Who gives more?
There are few analysts who argue that the collection of vintage wristwatches will be the most accurate status symbol of the 21st century. you sign up?

The word "PREIMPER" comes from "Pretérito Imperfecto"; In Spanish it is a verbal tense of the past. It fits with what we are looking for. Imperfections caused by the passage of time. The patina and honest damage. Authentic. True
