Now through April 7th, you have a major opportunity to score a cool vintage timepiece at Antiquorum's online-only Gentlemen's Accessories and Watches sale—from the comfort of your favorite armchair. The Swiss auction house specializing in modern and vintage luxury watches has amassed a tempting collection of interesting pieces, many of them with reasonable pre-sale estimates. Here are our favorites:
This stainless-steel stunner from 1938, made a few years after the Reverso's revolutionary debut, has a beautifully-faded blue lacquered dial and evokes all the elegance of the Art Deco era. Est. $14,400 USD—$21,500 USD.
The Chronomat's complex dial means it is often overlooked among classic pilot's watches, but this admirable example from c.1947 with plenty of patina shows why the manual-winding chronograph is a must. Est. $3,000 USD—$5,400 USD.
Never heard of Nivada? The Swiss watch brand's chronographs, like this military-inspired, black-dial model from c.1950, are sought out by those who like its under-the-radar appeal. Est. $2,400 USD—$3,600 USD.
One of the grooviest vintage Omegas out there, the Flightmaster—this one dates from c.1969—is a retro-futuristic Space Age dream, measuring a massive 52mm and boasting a bidirectional revolving inner bezel among other features. Est. $3,600 USD—$6,000 USD.
At first glance, this c.1942 chrono doesn't look like a Rolex, which is a large part of its allure. The telemeter scale indicates that it was originally made for gentlemen racers who needed a reliable way to measure their speed. Est. $14,400 USD—$28,700 USD.
