It’s a funny thing about having collected watches for a long time. When I started, in the late 1960s, I was only able to acquire a few “antique” watches (100 years or older), and they were English fusee watches. 1850’s & 1860’s vintage American watches were well out of my price range (especially as a teenager). Now, most of my collection is antique, without even trying! And the concept of “vintage” (50 to 100 years old) never even occurred to me, but is now very much a thing with wristwatches. My childhood Timex is now “vintage”. (8-year-old me must have had a small wrist) This watch, below, is also just vintage now. A family friend brought it back for me from Switzerland in 1968. It was brand new, shiny, and of no interest to me, but I stuck it away and still have it today. Will “vintage” watches like this ever be collectible? It is about 16-size and has a privately labeled dial (Niklaus in Bern) and a 15j Unitas 6431 movement. It does retain some marginal interest for me in that “Waltham” (Swiss) later used this movement for some railroady-looking watches. I also keep it because it is nothing like anything else in my collection.
