Top 10 classic Watches

The world of vintage watches is a funny thing. Not funny “haha, ” but rather funny “hmm, I see." The peaks and valleys in prices of wristwatches sold a generation ago are related to many things – certainly the macro-level economy as a whole, how the brand / watch is perceived today, and how certain aspects play into collecting trends of the day. In this list, we’ll taken you through ten watches that we think should be selling for more money than they are, and we’ll tell you why. Oh, and there isn’t a single Rolex on this list.

1. The Heuer Bundeswehr Flyback Chronograph (pictured above)

There is a whole sect of collectors out there that go for nothing but true military-issued timepieces. What’s the appeal here? Well, they were A) never issued to civilians, which, in theory, should make them rather rare. B) They were designed with robustness and purpose in mind, meaning they are generally manufactured quite well. And C) they have, depending on whose army we’re talking about here, played a role in saving the free world. The Heuer here has so, so much going for it, and yet these suckers can still be had for almost nothing. It’s great looking, with a black dial, rotating bezel, and often found with cool mil-markings like “3H”, of a completely modern size (42mm), and it’s a freaking manually wound fly-back chronograph! Heuer did not make many fly-backs, and this one was built especially for pilots. Also, they all have badass issue numbers on the caseback. They were also built in Heuer’s hey-day, when the company's chronographs were as legit as any in the world. While Heuer’s connection to motorsport may dominate the dialog of their collective nostalgia, this is a watch that we think should be right up there with the Monaco. And you can get em for between $3, 000 and $4, 000 all day long.
