Here at MFM, we have had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with the team over at The Vintage Watch Room London and are so pleased to share our collaboration, and their story with our readers.
The Vintage Watch Room believe that watches are much much more than a means of simply telling the time. They are miniature time capsules reflecting the society and fashion of the decades they were created in, be it peacetime or wartime. Buying a vintage watch does a few things, it allows these mechanical wonders to have a new lease of life, you will own a timepiece that isn’t available in High Street Jewellers and will be as individualistic as the wearer who adorns his wrist with one, it’s a talking point and it also increase in value if it’s looked after well.
They believe that whilst most guys would aspire to a High end timepiece, not all can afford to buy one, their Vintage Watches start from below £100 to £1500, the majority costing the equivalent of a decent pair of shoes or a Suit. They are the one stop shop for Affordable Vintage Watches and we also repair, restore and rebuild vintage watches as well !
Every one of their watches has a story, they are just the storytellers !
