Vintage Watches Conquer Digital Age With Increasing Sales of Classic Rolexes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Cardiff, UK)–In the digital age everyone lives in, the time can be found anywhere, from the cell phone, the digital sign at the bank or the bottom of the computer screen. However, watches have been around for over 500 years, surviving various forms of technical advancement, only to come out just as popular as ever. In fact, the big names in the watch industry such as Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, Panerai, TAG and Omega are still in big demand due to the quality and workmanship in the original products. Additionally, the watch brand name indicates the good taste of the wearer, a cultured past and suggests wealth.

According to Paul Hornblow, spokesperson for Watches of Wales ( a firm specialising in the buying and selling of fine watches and jewellery, the demand is only increasing. “There’s something extra special about antique watches that’s hard to define. Made at a time when workmanship was proudly reflected in every timepiece, the classic styling of the great names like vintage Rolex ( was second to none. Vintage and antique watches also have something else that a new watch doesn’t – a history.”

While it may seem like customers are simply purchasing a used watch, Hornblow says that couldn’t be further from the truth. “Our vintage watches for sale may have some stories to tell – who knows what each one has seen – and the years of unfailing service they’ve given to a previous owner make them great investment pieces for fans of classic style and quality. A quality vintage Rolex is far preferable than a brand new one for a great number of people. Furthermore, we believe that buying a quality watch should be a special experience. Therefore, we offer a one-year warranty on all of our watches giving you total peace of mind when purchasing the watch for yourself or a loved one.”
