It always makes me cringe when I see rappers or other celebrities walking around with Rolex watches on. For people like me who love watches there’s nothing more frustrating than knowing that a watch I’ll probably never be able to afford – but would treasure – is being worn by a celebrity with no appreciation of the art of effort that went into making it.
Ok so I’m not really serious, but it does annoy me a bit. Maybe I sound bitter, but that’s only because I’ve just been browsing VintageWatchBrands.com and have decided on about ten different ones I’d like to buy. And, surprisingly, can afford none of them!
I don ‘t really mind when I see celebrities wearing expensive watches of course, but it would be nice to hear why they chose the watch and what makes it special for them. Of course, good luck to anyone that can afford a watch like a vintage Rolex!
So, I hear you ask, which watches would I like to buy? As I said earlier, there are more than a few, but some of my favorites are the Constantin Malte and Omega Seamaster series. There are a lot of different types of those watches, so I’d need to spend some time looking at the different options. But those are the main ones I’d go for if I had some spare money.
If I had to choose just one watch it would be the Omega Seamaster 300. For a sports watch it has an amazing elegance to it that I don’t think other watches can match. The great thing about watches is that everyone has a different opinion though, so I’d be interested to hear what everyone else thinks and what their favorite watch is.
