The Benefits and Drawbacks of Vintage Watches

More and more individuals are turning to the second-hand and vintage watch market for their purchases in today's watch industry, where collecting has become one of the century's largest obsessions. Some collectors, on the other hand, prefer to buy their timepieces fresh new, even if it means waiting a few of years.

Both options have advantages and disadvantages. Here are just a few of the key advantages and disadvantages of buying new vs old timepieces, but keep in mind that there is no right or wrong answer. It all comes down to personal preference in the end, and many watch collectors have both new and pre-owned watches in their collections.

It's important to recognize right away that antique and current wristwatches are not interchangeable and are related but distinct creatures. We've used the analogy of a vintage vehicle to describe this to purchasers throughout the years, and it appears to be one that people can connect to. A recent model automobile will be extremely dependable, cost-effective, and comfortable, and will require very little input from the owner.

In contrast, even in excellent condition, a vintage automobile from the 1930s or 1940s will be unreliable, require expensive specialised maintenance, consume a lot of gasoline, be underpowered, and have a pathetically insufficient heater.

Vintage watches are similar to classic automobiles. No antique wristwatch will come close to matching the level of dependability of a brand new model. Timekeeping is terrible by today's standards, and even the greatest specimens from Rolex and the rest from the 1960s and 1970s can't compare to the precision attained by mass-produced battery-powered watches available on the high street today for less than twenty pounds.

Few antique watches sellers want to say it, but owning a historical watch places far more demands on the buyer than purchasing a modern one. A antique watch will eventually require the skills of an expert watch manufacturer, just as a classic automobile would require frequent adjustments by a professional mechanic.
Although the amount of care necessary is nearly always small and inexpensive, typically requiring only a few minutes, being without a watch for a few days while such maintenance is being done may be unpleasant and inconvenient.

Another point to consider is that historical luxury watches lacked the technological features that we now consider standard. Before the 1950s, there was almost little effort taken to provide any form of motion shock protection. Early waterproof cases were similarly terribly inadequate, and no vintage wristwatch should ever be subjected to water or even damp today. Attempts at magnetic field protection were attempted often, but the technology was still in its infancy and nothing near as advanced as it is now.

In summary, anyone purchasing an antique timepiece with the intention of using it as a daily, functioning timekeeper would always be disappointed. Such a buyer's interests will be best served by purchasing a brand new model that will be hassle free and completely reliable at all times.

The disadvantage of owning a new watch is that contemporary and recent models are severely lacking in charm. We will notice at least twenty gentlemen sporting current model Rolex watches if we stroll around any big supermarket in the UK. These watches are in no way defective; in fact, they are quite the contrary; nonetheless, they have a bland uniformity and dullness that is a far cry from the uniqueness and appeal of antique versions.

Some of the vintage watches on this site are so rare that they may be the sole surviving specimens of their type. In virtually all cases, their identical twins will not be seen on a regular basis, and it is conceivable to live a lifetime without seeing someone wearing the same model. To return to our comparison with the world of classic cars, the fact is that for many people, including ourselves, driving down the Kings Road in a 1950s Mercedes gullwing or riding on a Vincent Black Shadow would be far more appealing than making the same journey in a current BMW 5 series or Honda model.

Vintage wristwatches, like its automobile counterparts, exude individuality, character, and the spirit of the era in which they were created. They're great conversation starters, and they always get compliments at the dinner table, just like an old vehicle sitting in the street.

Nothing beats the sense of wearing an early watch, knowing that its original owner wore it in the corpse-strewn trenches of the Somme or Passchendaele, or a luxurious 1930s model that adorns the wrist of some affluent gentleman in the years leading up to World War II. However, keep in mind that you're purchasing an ancient artefact that, like the veteran vehicles on the London to Brighton run, will never be able to compete on a level playing field with the most contemporary versions in the jewellers' displays.

Vintage wristwatches are perfect for people who enjoy the finer details of highly patinated antique furniture, slightly faded first edition novels, classic British motorbikes, and period Louis Vuitton travel trunks from the interwar years. However, if you are unfamiliar with these sorts of items and want your belongings to be clinical, minimalist, and absolutely practical, we can nearly promise that you will regret purchasing a traditional timepiece.

In truth, most collectors avoid this problem by having a diverse collection of timepieces. The vintage vehicle enthusiast's prized collection will be on display at historic track days and possibly an annual trip to Goodwood or Pebble Beach. He'll drive a contemporary, totally practical automobile for the remainder of the time.
We wouldn't recommend a vintage wristwatch to someone looking for a single timepiece, but for many people who already possess one or more contemporary watches, collecting antique models may be a highly rewarding and addicting hobby.

숨겨두고 싶은 빈티지 커스텀 맛집, 'Like Likes Like,'
한 번도 못 본 사람은 있어도 한 번만 본 사람은 없다는 편집숍 때는 작년 가을, 인스타그램 팔로워의 피드를 둘러보다 우연히 발견한 커스텀 편집숍, ‘Like Likes Like,’. 미국 그림동화 작가 크리스 라쉬카(Chris raschka)의 그림책 ‘Like Likes Like’에서 이름을 따온 이 편집숍은 국내에서 보기 드문 염색 기법을 주무기로 내세우며 다양한 디테일이 가미된 빈티지 커스텀 아이템을 폭넓게 선보이고 있다. 세상에 둘도 없는 단 하나뿐인 나만의 고유한 아이템을 가질 수 있다는 것. 바로 이것이 커스텀 아이템의 묘미이자, ‘Like Likes Like,’를 주목해야 하는 이유다. 자신만의 개성을 중요시하는 요즘 소비자들에게는 더할 나위 없는 쇼핑 창구가 되어줄 터. 봄기운이 만연한 어느 날 <아이즈매거진>이 인천 구월동 골목길에 나지막이 자리 잡은 ‘Like Likes Like,’의 오프라인 쇼룸으로 향했다. 지하 2층, 널찍하게 트인 공간으로 구성된 ‘Like Likes Like,’ 쇼룸. 먼저, 입구에 들어서자마자 간결하게 정리된 매장 디스플레이가 시선을 사로잡았다. 알록달록 색색이 물든 다채로운 빈티지 커스텀 아이템들의 향연을 시작으로, 매장 한편에는 엄선된 셀렉팅을 거친 빈티지 아이템들도 만나볼 수 있었다. 자고로 빈티지 아이템은 고르는 재미 아닌가. 이들은 단순한 커스텀 편집숍에서 더 나아가 자체 제작 상품으로 브랜딩을 강화하겠다는 포부도 내비쳤다. 첫 자제 제작 상품은 로고 크루넥 스웨트 셔츠. 세탁 후 수축과 뒤틀림을 막기 위하여 덤블 워싱과 텐타 가공을 진행했으며, 넥 라인과 암홀, 밑단에 커버 티치를 넣어 내구성을 높였다고 한다. ‘Like Likes Like,’의 백미라 할 수 있는 액세서리 커스텀. 색다른 디자인의 스니커를 찾고 있다면 블리치(탈색) 기법으로 새 단장을 마친 제품들을 눈여겨보자. 현재 구매 가능한 커스텀 슈즈는 나이키(Nike) 매치 슈프림, 컨버스(CONVERSE) 척테일러 70 등. 단, 커스텀 슈즈는 랜덤 사이즈로 제작되기 때문에 신중하고 빠른 구매 결정이 필요하다. 고민하는 찰나의 순간 품절이 될 수도 있으니. 심심한 룩에 유니크한 포인트를 주고 싶다면 핸드 스티치와 페인트로 표면을 거칠게 표현한 헤드웨어는 어떨까. 제품 리스트는 캉골(Kangol) 헌팅캡, 슈프림(Supreme) 캡 등이 있다.

Graphic Design Tip: How to Brainstorm an Effective Logo
Before I started going to art school, my parents (as a lot of parents do) really overestimated my own abilities. During my high school years, they launched their own non-profit organization for breast cancer advocacy, where the entire group was essentially run out of a room of our house. My father was in charge of building the website and making sure that it ran smoothly. My mother was the spokesperson, often attending various conventions and symposiums to address those in the medical field about breast cancer and HER2+, a more aggressive expression. Launching the group was running quite smoothly until my parents approached me with a favor. They wanted me to design their logo. Andddd it didn't go so well. They gave up and found a professional. Fast forward to my life after art school, and I'm looking back at my high school years wishing I could have helped teenage me come up with a great logo design. While creating a logo is not as easy as it looks, it really is perhaps one of my favorite design challenges. There is a lot to consider when you're making a logo, and I've decided that it might be helpful to make a simplified list for all of you Vingle designers so that you can go out into the branding world and create beautiful things! 1. Keep it simple. As fun as it is to be given the opportunity to really utilize your creative side, it really isn't the appropriate time to start busting out all of those fancy and elaborate tricks you might have learned doing other projects. Creating a visually 'busy' logo is just not effective marketing. 2. Keep in mind that you're creating a symbol to represent a company. It can be pretty direct symbolism, ie: the apple logo for Apple or the red cross for American Red Cross, or it can be more abstract, similar to the Nike swoosh. Another popular logo option is to reduce down to a strictly typographic design. Disney or Kellogg's is a good example of effective typographic logos. Get creative, but keep it simple. My favorite example of balance between creativity and minimalism is the FedEx logo. Have you ever noticed there's an arrow between the E and the X? 3. Do your research. Before thumbnailing your own logo ideas, think of all of the logos you've seen that really caught your attention. Even try drawing them out freehand. Look up interviews with the advertising designers behind some of the world's most famous logos. I would recommend "To Inform and Delight", a documentary about Milton Glaser, the artist who designed the I♥NY logo. 4. When you're finally ready, begin making a list of all the descriptive words you associate with the company and how you want your audience to feel when looking at your logo, like 'friendly' or 'sophisticated'. Then think about your nouns. When you think about your company, what images come to mind? If you were creating a logo for Tropicana Orange Juice, for example, maybe the first thing you think of is a tree or an orange or a glass. Try to think of as many nouns as possible, as these will definitely help you when you start putting pencil to paper. 4. USE YOUR SKETCHBOOK. I can't stress the importance of this. I feel like a lot of artists go straight to their laptops and begin working on Photoshop or Illustrator over working on actual thumbnails first. Technology can really stifle the creative process that is so important in the early stages of design. Draw at least 100 thumbnails in your sketchbook. It will really help you push your own boundaries and give you a number of ideas to choose from. 5. When considering which thumbnail you want to use, think about the different ways your logo will be translated for pamphlets, packages, and other promotional materials. Does your logo translate well to color AND black and white? How does it look on a dark background versus a light background? How does the logo look with text and without text? Is it as visually effective when you adjust the scale? Manipulate your logo over and over, and if it is still recognizable, you probably have yourself a really iconic logo! I hope this can help some of you designers and marketers, especially those of you who might be in the middle of branding or rebranding a company. The logo is always the first start! Happy designing!

Christopher Wool
Best known for his paintings of large, black, stenciled letters on white canvases In Christopher Wool's initial vocation, he detected a white truck vandalized by the shower painted words "sex" and "Luv." The obvious straightforwardness of the picture stayed with him for the following 15 years. Fleece started making high-contrast artworks canvassed in stenciled phrases, looking to mirror the pressure and distress of the 1980s and 90s.

It was not until he started making the stenciled word works of art, notwithstanding, that he found a genuine window into the contemporary craftsmanship world.

There were few christopher wool prints presented in the auction by Phillips in the Evening & Day Auction Sale held in London on 10 September 2020. "At the point when I originally saw his assertion works of art, I figured: I can't accept what they're pulling off nowadays," says Richard Hell, a troublemaker artist, author, and now companion to the craftsman. This demeanor is repeated by numerous individuals of Wool's faultfinders. Nonetheless, his specialty is purposeful, intended to bring out an idea and passionate reactions in the watcher. The course of action of the letters is expected to undermine ordinary understanding and discernment. The jargon is intentionally angry. One of Wool's most remarkable pieces from this period is Apocalypse Now, a 1988 artwork on aluminum enlivened by the Francis Ford Coppola film of a similar name.

Offering crossed the artistic creation's high gauge of USD 20 million preceding coming to $26.5 million. Around the turn of the thousand years, Wool moved the course of his craft.

Antique glass candy containers
Glass candy containers were originally designed as treasure-filled toys or souvenirs; they still attract collectors nearly a century after they were introduced. When asked Jim Olean how he started his collection of glass candy containers, he said in the fall of 1985, I went out into the woods near my house in search of wild mushrooms. Despite my search for mushrooms, I found an old dump. There was a small glass candlestick telephone, a dog, and a Santa without ahead. These items were taken home, washed, and placed on a shelf in our game room. My uncle, who collects many old things, came over to visit me one day. He saw the glass items I showed him. I was told they were made about 30 minutes away, that they held candy, and that they were made of glass. It was a novelty that a toy and candy were all in one!" Since they were found in the dump, all the parts that came with them were gone. If I went to the local antique flea market, then I could find an all-original one, according to my uncle. The next spring, when the flea markets opened, I went to the best one in town. In the same dump, I also discovered a candlestick telephone. But this one was 100% original like the day it was made, some thirty years ago! My $15 purchase went on the shelf with the one I bought from the dump. Even the candy was still intact on the telephone, which was a far cry from the one from the dump. Due to this, I purchased as many as were available. Having made that purchase, I did not realize how far it would go! History of glass candy containers Where and when this industry began is somewhat dubious. There is some proof that glass toy sweets holders were delivered as right on time as the last part of the 1860s. The initially archived model was the 1876 Liberty Bell, delivered by Croft, a confectioner from Philadelphia, PA. Croft created candy on the grounds of the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Fair and sold them in a glass gift Liberty Bell. Many more likely than not been sold, as this 145-year-old holder isn't uncommon and can be found for under $100 today. The focal point of the glass toy sweets holder industry was Jeannette, PA, a humble community outside of Pittsburgh, PA. It became home to many glass organizations as a result of the spotless consuming petroleum gas that was found there in the last part of the 1880s. The sweets holder industry didn't take off until George West, President of Westmoreland Glass, got included. In 1906, his organization began to patent glass toy sweets compartments for creation. These early Westmoreland holders were straightforward in plan and had a metal conclusion. Plans included trunks, bags, tickers, and horns made in milk glass. They were finished with paint and sold as keepsakes, denoting a year or spot. How many different glass candy container designs were produced over time? For around 100 years, about 550 distinctive glass treats compartments were delivered by no less than 13 organizations including vintage glass candy containers. A few compartments are extremely normal, while others are astoundingly uncommon, with just a couple of known models. I've been gathering these for a very long time and have most, yet not all, of them. No gatherer, past or present, has had the option to secure each model. It's simply excessively hard. In the broadest sense, current costs can go from USD 5 to $5,000, with the state of the compartment fundamentally impacting its worth. Costs expanded throughout the long term and topped around 2006. With the approach of web purchasing and selling, and eBay specifically, costs descended. Media Source: AuctionDaily

American Female Artist: Katherine Bradford
American Female Artist: Katherine Bradford When requested to depict her work in three words, American artist Katherine Bradford picked “sparkly peopled landscapes.” Taken at face esteem, this portrayal is exact. Bradford, however, thought to be an installation of both the New York and Maine craftsmanship scenes, isn't firmly lined up with any contemporary or verifiable workmanship development. Her status as a close outcast craftsman has permitted her to investigate a composition style dependent on feeling and memory than procedure. It presently fills in as scenery for conversations of social issues and individual encounters. Not at all like numerous creative, had Bradford never drawn in with craftsmanship during adolescence. Her mom debilitates it, connecting inventiveness to a way of life of liquor abuse and illicit drug use. Bradford spent her initial grown-up years following a more ordinary life way, thus, settling down with a spouse and two youngsters. She arrived at a limit in her 30s, notwithstanding, acknowledging during an essential lunch that she required both individual and expert change. "I would not like to be there for one more lunch. In this way, when individuals descended the carport to our home, I leaped out a window and hurried to my studio," she disclosed to Jennifer Samet of Hyperallergic in 2016. Katherine Bradford paintings for sale are available online. Following this second, Bradford started seeking after workmanship all the more genuinely. Having never gone to workmanship school or gotten formal preparation, her style developed naturally. Bradford's works started investigating predictable subjects, including swimmers, systems, and superheroes. She consistently utilizes delicate, dream-like tones and straightforward structures to investigate further thoughts regarding memory, experience, connections, and sexuality. "Bradford's figures are largely conventionally human yet solitary in their execution, as though they freaked out of the brush and arrived unpredictably… And covered up in her arrogant brushwork are astute and centered choices," composed Michael Frank Blair after the craftsman's display at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas. By the mid-2010s, Katherine Bradford artist had set up herself in the realm of contemporary workmanship. Seas, night skies, and approaching boats showed up in her work. Every one of the canvases introduced in the forthcoming closeout addresses these setup subjects. Sail Boat, a 2011 oil on the material piece, only proposes the state of its nominal subject. Drifting over a dull and indistinct structure is the sail, set marginally askew and hued in murky shades of rose and violet. Some time ago in a private Connecticut assortment, this work is offered with a presale gauge of USD 6,000 to $8,000. Another accessible piece, named Giant Stacks, pictures the overwhelming red smokestacks of a boat ($2,500 – $3,500). The foundations of this and comparative works have been compared to shading field painting, for certain segments getting back to back to Rothko. The most established Bradford painting in this sale is from 1995, an untitled turquoise and earthy colored piece that summons the natural eye ($800 – $1,200). Market revenue for Bradford's artistic creations has as of late got. By 2017, they started selling over their high gauges as opposed to passing unsold. One early green and dark gouache on paper painting came to $4,063 with Rago, surpassing its high gauge of $700 almost sixfold. During a new Phillips sell-off, held toward the beginning of March of 2020, her Couple on Purple acrylic painting sold for $12,500 after a gauge of $2,000 to $3,000. This pattern runs corresponding to a checked change in the nature and topic of Bradford's specialty. Her works have since quite a while ago filled in as "a mental placeholder, a holder for a felt or state of mind." Recent artistic creations presently overlay this with political analysis, unpretentiously investigating sex jobs, race, and passing. One of these 2019 pieces accomplished HKD 200,000 (USD 25,800) after 14 offers at Sotheby's Hong Kong this past May. Bradford's compositions are held in the lasting assortments of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Portland Museum of Art, and others. She keeps on canvas, shows, and gives her work to different craftsman help assets and social causes.
