I am completely satisfied with the 1969 about classic model watch. It is clean, beautiful, and functional. If you are looking for a timepiece that is simple and feels like it belongs with you wherever you are this watch is for you. No frills, no extra adjustments. Just the time, when you need it, where you need it, in a beautiful steel case that stands out without being ostentatious.
Came in 2 business days (and I live in Canada!) great service and lovely product. Super happy!
I own a store - I have been working in retail for 20 years and I was gobsmacked in the level of customer service this company provides . I’m blown away and very rarely does that happen when I’m dealing with a retail
Product. Thankyou very much for fixing my mistake without question.
I bought the 1844 Chronograph with brown strap and a white strap add-on, the watch looks so classy and easy-matching with daily looks, it also helps a step up on the looks with its high end details and elements. Highly satisfied with the purchase.
Love the watch. The blue color is really nice making it not super flashy but a nice piece.
A simple but beautiful design with small touches of detail making this watch Easy to dress up or down.
I bought two watches for my sister and myself on 25th and 26th Nov, in the store located at Norreport. I highly appreciate how nice and classy, yet chic, the watches are being designed and made, plus the superb services and professional advices provided by both salesperson, which is an wonderful shopping experience as a customer.
I would like to thank you again and please keep it up! The watch would definitely be the best gift for my sister's birthday.
All the best to the About Vintage team.
Summarized review: Worth every penny, and of superb quality. If you like how it looks, you should have no second thoughts about buying.
This watch is phenomenal. The design is beautiful and classy, instantly striking without being gaudy. I collect watches, but this is the first watch I've owned that can be truly dressed up or down to be either formal or casual. It looks fancy but is still easy to read. Almost everyone who's seen this watch, even strangers, has commented on how beautiful it is and how striking they find the color.
It's a good weight; light enough to sit comfortably on the wrist but not so light it feels flimsy. All the pieces feel solid and well-assembled. Time and date are easy to set. The chronograph buttons give a nice satisfying click, and the mecha-quartz movement really gives the best of both worlds.
The strap is fantastic as well, a worthy complement to the watch. The leather is sturdy but supple, comfortable on the skin and looks visible high-quality. I can already tell it's going to age nicely. It comes with easy quick-release pins that let you swap straps without any special tools, but I don't think I'll ever want to take this one off. (Bonus points: I have particularly tiny wrists for a man, but the options afforded by the holes in the strap run small enough to fit me!) I'm seriously considering buying straps for my other watches from About Vintage.
One small nitpick: if you don't press the chrono-reset button firmly enough, it will reset the chrono-second hand but not the chrono-minute hand. This can be solved by running the chronograph for a few seconds, then pressing the reset button again, more firmly this time. I've had this happen twice and fixed it quickly and easily. Otherwise, the watch has run faultlessly.
I absolutely love my new watch and appreciate the quick response from the about vintage team, with regard to some queries I had. The watch was delivered on time and was very easy to track progress. Eagerly looking forward to my next Purchase. Thank you!
