Just in: Fresh Mid-Century Watches at The Rake Vintage
The vintage watch market has been growing exponentially year-on-year for the past decade. With that growth, more and more outlets have entered the market and now a quick Google of your desired model will more often than not bring up a plethora of options for sale from a wide range of sources. But how do you know that you’re buying the right quality? Well, unless you know and trust the source in truth, unless you know exactly what you’re buying, it can be a gamble. Buying a vintage watch can be fraught with all kinds of issues relating to condition and authenticity.

Watches that are stunning in quality and incredibly rare but also very accessibly priced as we demonstrate with our current selection that includes some rare and interesting mid-20th century dress watches from brands that are familiar and some examples that are lesser known.
