Vintage Watch Blog.
I really don't like admitting this because it's not percieved as a positive thing for business; however, the truth is that a vintage watch is a personal purchase. In fact, during the holiday season, I sell the least amount of watches, while during the spring, summer and fall (I'm in New England) things couldn't be busier. One thing I've learned not only from personal experience but from talking to hundreds of clients and friends about this; is that
Men want what they want and something else just doesn't cut it...
while women, seem so much more gracious and accepting of a gift that; perhaps isn't quite what they wanted. Now I know there are exceptions - so please don't take this the wrong way. Many women have purchased watches from me as gifts for their man. Some get returned because they don't like it; some love them and some the woman keeps for herself and wears because she loved it but he didn't. There are just too many chooses, styles and brands etc in vintage watches to make a gift purchase without any input. If you REALLY want it to be a surprise, contact me I'm very good at asking questions and determining the best possible options.
Let's face it, vintage men's watches actually are super cool for women to wear. I mean, when (rarely) I see it, I'm like...okay this woman is cool and I obviously would love to talk with her about it; and it's a trend that I think will start to catch fire. I was in Paris, Nice and London several months ago and I saw many fashion conscious woman wearing men's or ladies (but mostly men's) vintage watches. So as they say, fashion trends start in Europe...right?
Now back to men. Look, if you're a woman and you think it's a good idea to buy a vintage watch for your loved one, get him (or her) involved in the purchase. Find out what they like and don't make it such a surprise; you'll all be happier when the package arrives...believe me. If you a man, don't just tell her I want a vintage watch - you need to be involved in the purchase or at least show her examples if you want to be happy about the gift.
Men and Women shopping for themselves; hey, you know what you want - shop away my friends because the vintage watch market is getting more expensive every day and great pieces are getting harder to find.
