    Vintage Style: Watch Insider’s Top 10 Modern Re-Edition Watches

    Very interesting and I never knew that Cartier's Tank watch was designed as a gift for General John Pershing. Interesting and lovely pieces
    I have the 1932 Jaeger

    TAGHeuer is very promotional about its heritage and has produced several re-editions with the Heuer logo. It has confused some folks who think they are original Heuers but a some of the models are quite sought after and now sell for more than the originals! I suppose some folks think 'new' is better than 'original'

    The Tissot has a revival of tritium lume! Strange to see T-Swiss-T on a new watch. I have never seen a new one before but suppose the lume needs no 'charging' - it just works (like the tritium gas tube watches).

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    That is mighty strange, since 1998 Luminova is used (NON radioactive) they really want to make it look as was

    What, no Zenith "New Vintage 1969"?! Rather disappointing..... - especially since it is one of the few (the only?!) retro style watch which has the original movement in it!
