Please forgive me if this is a repeat question but to put it simply, is it better to stay with modern watches or venture down the rabbit hole that is vintage? I had the opportunity to buy a vintage Tudor Submariner and the guy I was dealing with was nothing more than a slimy salesman. Long story short, not only did I not buy it but it kind of soured me on the whole vintage experience. Made me want to immediately go back to my original desire, a modern GMT. It got me thinking....which one is a better investment...a thirty year old watch that I know nothing about except it's reputation or a modern watch that will give me AT LEAST thirty years and I know everything about it.
Clearly, I know everyone has their favorites and there is no right or wrong to this question. I am just interested to hear who likes what and why.
