Try to think of the most Try to think of the most special moments in your life. Perhaps it is the day your children were born, the day you said “I do” or that time when you passed a difficult exam. Feel that? The sensation of reminiscing your favorite memories. What if you could take the feeling, and the moment with you?
That’s what the Danish watch brand, About Vintage, has set out to help you with. For one, wearing an analog wristwatch allows its wearer to stay on top of time without the distractions associated with the digital world, and consequently, more present in every passing moment. Second, watches are often given as gifts or bought to celebrate special occasions. For About Vintage it comes down to every moment, whether grandiose or trivial, and the celebration of it.
With a track record of several impressive partnerships, such as watch collaborations with Swiss brand Frederique Constant and recently announced as the official watch partner of AC Milan, the brand, originally founded in 2016, has quickly grown into experienced watch designers. They offer something for both the competent collector, the watch newbie, and everything in between with prices ranging from $199-3,999.
A Nod to Years of Racing Horology
The recently launched 1960 Racing is a celebration of generations of racing horology, with subtle nods to the likes of Audi Sport, Porsche, McLaren and Shelby Cobra, all part of that era. The design is a balance between vintage aesthetics, 80’s Bauhaus design lines and modern-day technology, encapsulated in a 40mm sport chronograph complete with a tachymeter, scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, 316L surgical steel case and About Vintage’s new signature bracelet.
It is a made to order exclusively available in a limited order period.
A Swiss Made GMT in Warm Tones
As a classic two-toned GMT, this model merges a warm burgundy half with its gold counterpart, offering its wearer an elegant display of color. The watch exudes quality craftsmanship whether the eyes wander to the stainless steel watch case or to the orange arrow-shaped GMT hand.
Powered by the Swiss Made automatic Sellita movement with up to 42 hours power reserve and a frequency of 28,800 A/h, it is also a reliable powerhouse of a movement.
The Watch That Saves Green Sea Turtle
The Green Turtle is a part of their extensive Turtle watch collection, which counts several sizes and watch faces. One might wonder where the name comes from, and for this one, the answer is simple. Inspired by green sea turtles, the watch face features a distinct texture mimicking the look of their characteristic carapace.
And in fact, this model has more to it than just good looks. About Vintage donates a part of the sale from every watch to a sea turtle conservation organization, the Turtle Foundation, thereby giving 20 hatchlings a safe start in life.
The Watch Fit for Any Occasion
This classic white chronograph is one of their absolute bestsellers, and is loved by many due to its versatility. Sleek and understated with subtle steel hands and domed sapphire glass, it is fit for both a workday at the office or special occasions. Due to its quartz movement, the watch is also the budget friendly choice, retailing at $349.
