New purchases, now vintage.

Just a quick question.  How many of you have watches that you purchased new that are now considered vintage?  I do not mean a watch you inherited or purchased second hand, but one which you bought new.  I have seven.  Two original Orient Makos, one orange, one yellow; an Original Bambino, my Seiko 7009, my Casio DW-290, my Pulsar Tank, and my Wenger Field Watch.

Would love some photos! I can’t say any of mine are vintage, but I do have an Orient Kamasu from the original release!

·

My wife was new and unused when I got her many years ago but is now in the vintage category.

My wife just entered that category herself.

When is a watch vintage 🤔 The age old question...

Well, I am thinking the Pulsar, the Makos, the Gen 1 Bambino, the 7009, And the Wenger Field qualify because none of them are made anymore.  The Casio is debatable but it is 25 + years old.

What is it with cars, fifteen years to qualify as a vintage model? Nice round number I could abide by given all the parallels one can draw between the two hobbies.

Order a Rolex Daytona, it will be vintage before you even take possession. Lololololololol 🤣

When does recent end and vintage begin tho? 10 years? If so I have two. Both Citizen Skyhawks

My wife and I each have a G-Shock MTG-910, the watch used in one of the Mission Impossible movies.

Out of curiosity, what is the minimum age for "vintage" these days?

A 1973 Seiko Dx and a TAG HEUER Carrera Twin Time from 1995ish.  Do they count?

Wow, some of you guys are seriously ballsy talking about your wives that way. Better hope they don’t come up behind you and read that…
