More Vintage Style: 9 Modern Re-Editions of Classical Watches


Last week, I listed 10 of my favorite vintage-style re-edition watches from various brands, but a lot of favorites still got left out. So, due to popular demand, here are nine more watches released in the past year or so that I consider among the best at representing the ongoing trend of reviving classical looks.

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra Thin: This is a modern re-edition of the original Royal Oak, which debuted in 1972.

Corum Chargé d´Affaires: Today’s version of the alarm wristwatch that Corum launched in 1956.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea: It’s hard to tell the difference between this recently produced model and the “Deep Sea Alarm Automatic” from the 1950s.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Polaris: Another case in which the new watch looks just like the original one, produced in 1966.

Longines Legend Diver Watch: It’s tough to distinguish between this new Longines divers’ watch and the 1956 original that preceded it.

  3. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your newsletter and articles. Even though I consider myself a watch enthusiast, I am at a loss to explain why I enjoy owning so many watches, reading about watches and their history and even dreaming about watches that I could never afford to own nor even could I afford it, should I consider owning! I just love watches.

    On suggestion though…..is it possible for you to add a feature to your articles pictures where the photos could be enlarged in certain areas. I love analyzing the small details and this would be a great addition to your articles.

    Keep up the great work.
