Vintage Top 10 Watches

The best vintage watches that was made in the golden era. Retro style watches that powerful people like.

1.OMEGA Speedmaster

Price Range: $2,000-$3,000
Year: 70s or 80s
The manual winding Speedmaster Professional or "Moonwatch" is the best-known and longest-produced; it was worn during the first American spacewalk as part of NASA's Gemini 4 mission and was the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission

2. Heuer Autavia

Price Range: $2,000-$2,500
Year: Late 1960s to early 1970s.

 No other Heuer model offers such a large variation of styles and designs, so there’s probably an Autavia out there for you somewhere, regardless of your taste. Expensive versions exist, but more common ones are affordable (perhaps even undervalued).

3. Breitling Navitimer & Top Time

Price Range: $2,000-$2,500
Year: Vintage 1960s models

A better choice for those of us who aren’t calculating airspeed and rate of descent is the Breitling Top Time, a watch once worn by Bond himself. The Top Time is similar to a Heuer Carrera, but is much less difficult to find.

4.Tudor Submariner

Price Range: Up to $5,000
Year: 1960s to start of 70s

The Tudor Submariner gained immeasurable popularity when the first Oyster Prince Submariner with the reference 7922 was presented in 1954. Robust, reliable, and waterproof, the timepiece convinces both professional and amateur divers who enjoy a reliable diving mechanism that can also be worn during everyday life.

5.Longines Aviator

Price Range: About $1,000
Year: 1960s

While the watch itself may have some retro-inspired design cues, it is very much a modern watch. The 44mm steel case feels pretty beefy (almost to diver proportions), and the 120g weight on the strap hardly ever let’s you forget that the watch is present on your wrist. Therefore, this is likely a watch that they intended to be on bigger wrists.


A vintage Panerai is an exceptional addition to any collector’s stash, but good luck getting your hands on one. In its initial stages, Panerai made just 300 watches, all for the Italian Marina Militare, between 1938 and 1993. Even after the brand was resurrected later in the 90s, Panerai timepieces remain scarce. Only about 1,000 were made between 1993 and 2000,Vintage Panerai watches are hard to come by at any time, but especially in Australia where they weren’t retailed.


Price Range: Around $2,000
Year: 60s & 70s

Enicar watches seem to be in the midst of a resurgence in popularity as of late and although not at the levels of horological achievement of Universal Geneve, Enicar has a solid following online due to their reliable movements and affordability. For nearly seventy four years Enicar produced watches that have been worn by mountaineers, a race car driver, Russian rocket scientist, U.S. Navy Divers and a ship. Yes, a ship has worn Enicar

8.Eterna KonTiki

Price Range: Around $2,000
Year: 60s & 70s

Crew members of the KonTiki were supposedly equipped with Eterna watches. A reasonable choice, as for what it’s worth, Eterna was one of these few brands, that managed to get just about everything right, waterproof cases included.

Oddly enough, it’s not known if Heyerdahl himself was wearing an Eterna. The watch on museum display, labeled as the “expedition’s chronometer” (well, hardly a chronometer as such) is…a military issued Longines COSD “Tuna Can”. Longines made them for British paratroopers during World War II.

9.Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox

Price Range: $2,500-$3,000
Year: 60s

 The Memovox’s alarm sounds like the ringing of an old telephone. The volume isn’t earsplitting on the wrist, where it unobtrusively reminds its wearer of an upcoming appointment. But when this watch is placed on a bedside table, the tabletop becomes an additional resonating body and the alarm rings loudly enough to summon even the most somnolent sleepyhead from dreamland. An alarm ranks among the most practical horological complications. And the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox, along with the Vulcain Cricket, is one of the best-known models with this audible feature.

10.Audemars Piguet Royal Oak A-Series

The Royal Oak that would introduce stainless steel as a precious metal and because of it changed the world of Haute Horlogerie. Designed by Gerald Genta and launched in 1972, it was the most expensive watch ever to be made in stainless steel, and while many doubted if it would ever work, it turned to be spot-on. 45 years later, the Royal Oak is not only still around but also accounts for the vast majority of the revenue that Audemars Piguet makes. The A-Series features the AP logo above the 6 o’clock position, and underneath the dial you can find ultra-thin AP caliber 2121, which is based on Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber 920. Collectors do face one dilemma when it comes to an A-series Royal Oak: While the stainless-steel version is what it is all about, the full-gold variety is actually rarer
