    Thumbs Up Let's talk about Vintage themed modern watches.

    Anyone got any recommendations for vintage inspired watches of modern make? I love the vintage aesthetic but not the size of some pieces. I'm also glad a lot of companies are making more retro or Heritage lines with older styling these days. I currently have a Stienhart Ocean One Vintage, Evant Tropic vintage, and Tissot Sovereign Heritage. What do you guys wear or want that fall into a similar vein?

    It's a target rich environment these days. The IWC XI tribute, the Omega '57 trilogy, Hamilton is bringing back the no-date mechanical, the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf. That's just off the top of my head, there are many, many more.

    And one more, just because I love both Farer and compressors. And it goes a whole different direction than many throwback models.

    I'm not sure I'd call the Farer a vintage themed watch. I love a lot of the throwback watches though.
    Of the watches I own, I'd call these three vintage themed.

    If a watch has got fake vintage lume does it count as a vintage inspired watch?

    If it's got fake vintage lume, I would sure hope it's at least vintage inspired.

    And the Farer isn't an homage, but in my opinion it's definitely inspired by the vintage cushion-cased compressor watches from the 70s.
