How old is vintage?

In Finland a car has To be 30y/o (and In good original condition) To enter the historic register. But what about watches?

I know my grandad's Roamer is old enough, but can my Casio A 680 (mid 80's) be called vintage?

What do you guys think? If you are born In 2000's, is every thing older than you vintage? I was born In 1980 and I don't think that 90's isn't old enough To be vintage.

I think it's fair to say that something that's 30 years old is vintage.

how about

10-25 years retro

25-50 years vintage

more than 50 antique

also depends on our age

I like that chart馃憤 It should be a moving concept depending on your age. This is a classic older vs. younger generation thing.

Okay this has been discussed quit abit. So it's a minimum of 20 years. Here is a link from experts.

for me anything prior to the quartz crisis are vintages

1997

The equation is something like the year of a person's 18th birthday plus the square root of their current age or 20 years, whichever is greater.

I like your Casio. Looks like its ready for a new crystal. 馃榾

i would say very mature sir lol

25-30 years old is the beginning of vintage for goods like cars here in the US.

Which is weird because now a watch my grandfather would have worn during & after WW2, a watch my uncle wore in Vietnam, and a $10 Walmart quartz pocket watch from the Desert Storm era all have the same label. That last one makes my skin crawl.

No, not really. Look at this one here:

It was gifted to me 20+ years ago. Is it retro? I don't think so because ugliness is timeless.

The ProTrek is at least 10 years old (and showing it), but I don't think it's a retro watch. So we have to make room for style too.

I think we need to separate retro and retro style. I liked that chart, but maybe adjust it a little. My daily driver is 20y/o this year and to me its a new car.
