    WUS vintage forum 2065

    I was thinking to myself the other day (always dangerous) the watches we all love were not always treasured vintage pieces, they were once just every day watches, so let's go time traveling 50 years into the future, what watches will the next generation of vintage watch freaks be collecting?, what everyday watches will set their hearts a flutter? I know the likes of the submariner and speedmaster will always have a great following, so will the top brands that keep their money but what will mere mortals like us be hunting down?

    here are a few I think will be in the mix

    Anything from the G Shock range, the everyman watch

    Anyway what current watches do you think will be future classics?

    Well, by 2065 even the most blingy and disgusting stuff from Hublot and Richard Mille will become vintage.
    Of course, the Rolex Submariner will be what it is now- still available, the vintage pieces only distinguishable by the yellowed lume. And a price of minimum $15000, going by the rate, at which over the years they increase the price for... the same thing, really.
    Here's my list of 10 future vintages:
    1. Omega De Ville Tresor- the pricey dress-watch

    3. Omega Speedmaster "Dark Side of the Moon"- the future Holy Grail for vintage Omega maniacs

    4. Tissot T-Touch- a fine example of primitive, early 21st century electronics

    5. The Invicta "Kitschograph"- the garden gnome/ knitted tank-top of watches, a timeless example of distasteful kitsch:

    I did my best not to throw up, while I was looking for a picture of the most disgusting Invicta of them all, and I still think they can do better (or: they can do worse!)

    6. Hublot LaFerrari- the only 21st century key-wound watch (they provide an electric tool to wind this thing...)

    7. The Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph- because even in the future there must be something simple

    8. Omega Planet Ocean- because people will still watch the "old" Bond films

    9. Stowa Flieger Chrono- because there's got to be a watch, that the eBay sellers in 2065 will advertise as VERY RARE MILITARY VINTAGE VERY VERY RARE VINTAGE MILITARY.....

    I know what you're saying but I think I've found some that aren't homages but will be classics in their own right

    Re: WUS vintage forum 2065

    This is much like trying to figure out what modern car will be a popular classic in 50 years. It all comes down to the tastes of the future collectors. Some think that the Chinese made SeaGull or Beijing watches will be highly popular. Some things that were hot in their day are popular now. Some popular things in the past are now avoided as junk. Tastes change or we would all be wearing polyester floral shirts half open with bell bottom jeans listening to a mix of Elvis, Grateful Dead, Bee Gees, Devo and Brittany Spears. So what we like now may be yuck or "Grandpas old watch" style in the future.

    The only predication I have is that the pocket watch market will die off big time. One thing I have heard over and over though...quality will always be in style.

    But I do wear a floral shirt from time to time! Elvis and Grateful Dead are the only good stuff of the bands/artists you've mentioned, though.

    I was going to throw The Doors in there too.... I do also still listen to those big black round discs the kids have a hard time understanding what they are.

    I got some vintage 1950's Hawaiian shirts and, much to the unhappiness of my wife, wear them time to time. lol

    Everyone though Swatch watches were going to be a huge collecting phenomenon but these days people pass them over for very little money.

    The Lip Roger Tallon chrono, an absolute design classic.
    Also, Seiko's take on the Hamilton classic, the Ventura. Below is my Kinetic model.
