    I'm going to assume you're looking for more affordable alternatives otherwise you would just buy the watches you listed and this post would be "Check out my vintage aesthetic watches".

    Anyway, lip makes modern watches with a very vintage styling. Stuff like their Himalaya model.

    They range about $200 iirc.

    The LIP Himalaya uses a quartz movement though :(

    Yeah, quartz but $200 though!

    Anyway, the cocktail time is really swanky in the best way. I love the way that thing looks but it's a bit too thick to pull off the vintage wrist feel. Still a great choice.

    +1 for Nivrel. The Stowa Partitio is another option. Junkers and Zeppelin are also quite vintage-y. The Zeppelin Flatline borrows heavily from the GO 60s Senator.
