Current Trends in the Vintage Watch Market 2018

The vintage watch market is very healthy. Prices for vintage watches have gone up (a lot) in general but it’s impossible to talk about every available watch.

Our Top 3 of the Catawiki Watch Auctions – #1

Hi, watch enthusiasts! My name is Matthias De Pauw, and every other week from now on, I’ll discuss 3 watches from the active Catawiki auctions.

I’m an active member of different watch groups on social media and I’m an admin of the biggest Facebook group from the Benelux: ‘Horlogefreaks’.

I’m mainly a vintage collector, so I’ll focus on vintage watches. You can read my interview on WahaWatches to find out how I got into watch collecting.

It’s not my intention to write extensive reviews because there are already plenty available online. I just want to highlight the watches that jump out to me as an experienced collector and share the reasons why.

Please remember to always do your own research. This is not an endorsement or advice in any way. You’re responsible for your own bidding.
