A Vintage Insight

The vintage watch market is flourishing, unlike the temporary appeal of clothes & cars, a good watch is eternal. This rise in popularity may also be due to the fact that in these uncertain times, a high end swiss watch is known to appreciate in value and therefore is seen as good investment to pass onto the next generation.

As with any investment though it is good to do your research and the Steffans team, led by Wes Suter are happy to guide you through the process. A self confessed watchaholic, watches are Wes's passion and he gave us a few insights into the world of vintage.

What is the most important factor in buying a Vintage watch?
