Vintage & Prestige was established in 2015. Vintage & Prestige curates and retails the finest preowned luxury items, with a focus on wristwatches, jewellery, handbags and luxury accessories. The concept of Vintage & Prestige evolved from over twenty five years as avid watch collectors and vintage luxury goods enthusiasts. Initially we decided to offer some of the items we had curated for sale. Following overwhelmingly positive feedback and increased demand, we began trading with dealers and friends. The natural next step was to offer these items to a wider audience as an "online" retailer. Subsequently Vintage & Prestige was born. We pride ourselves on curating and retailing the finest items of their type, all of which have been hand picked by us. The vast majority of items we sell are 100% owned by us and paid for by us. We enjoy all elements of buying and selling vintage luxury goods and we still collect ourselves, travelling the world to acquire new vintage items and to gain inspiration. Simply put, we live and breathe Vintage & Prestige.
Typical "Vintage & Prestige" watches have enjoyed many years of recognition and collectibility and have become sound investments in many instances, with their intrinsic value growing year on year whilst being eminently wearable, usable and enjoyable. The value of our prestige items for sale represent significant savings over the new equivalent prices and the value of our vintage items reflect strong potential for future growth as an investment.
Vintage & Prestige actively encourages tasteful customisation of vintage goods and focuses on selecting unusual, exceptional quality and rare additions to the items we sell. For example, transforming a vintage Rolex wristwatch with an exclusive strap and matching wallet. This would make a highly unique and individual statement and gift to yourself or a generous gift to someone else.
