    Oldest watch you'd buy?

    If you're a vintage collector, this question really isn't for you. If you collect or acquire moderns, what is the oldest watch you would buy (pre owned)?
    For me it's 5 years. Nothing older than that.

    Really depends on the watch. For example, I would buy 15-20 year old watches which were Rolex. Some others, would need to be less than 2 years old or less. Hard to answer.

    It would depend on how badly I want it. There is no age limit. I tried to get a 14 y/o one the other day and lost. Still so very upset about it!!

    I'd take anything from the 30s to Brand new.

    What I really want is a nice, original seamaster from the 50s or 60s.

    If I liked the watch I'd try to get it regardless of age. None of the watches that I've bought would be considered vintage, but I also never worried about the age of any watch. I figure that at some point a watch will need to be serviced and then it'll be as good as new. So far I've only bought one watch that I had serviced right away. Not sure how old it was, but it could have been as old as one from 1999 or so.

    Guys,

    Age is of no consequence.

    I always thought that old = bad. But I have recently bitten the bullet and bought a watch thats 3 years older than me and I can't wait for it to turn up.

    Age doesn't matter one bit.

    Hell I would take a historical sundial for my yard anyday!
    Not as clumsy or as random as a cell phone. An elegant timepiece for a more civilized time.
