Vintage watches fever~~

I have been collecting vintage since 1988. I remember very clearly that during that time, majority of the collectors are focusing on collecting the boy size watches, the Rolex bubbleback, Prince, chronograph, reverso, etc. Most collector will only collect pre 1960s watches are these watches are more then 30 years old. At that time, everyone looked down on the sports model as these were not "vintage enough".

However, the trend now tends to be towards the sports models. Perhaps, the sporst watches have finally managed to gracefully age with time.. more then 30 years old. My latest Rolex 5513 is 44 years old..vintage enough i guess. Anyway, looking and wearing these watches always give me the joy!
