If you're lucky, grandpa or your dad might pass you down a quality timepiece like a Rolex, Patek Philippe, or Omega. If not, you're gonna have to pony up the cash for one. To save some dough, and get a really unique piece, you should invest in one with a few years on it. Learning about vintage watches is a great way to learn about what makes a quality timepiece, as well as the intricacies and nuances that come with watch collectingâ€”you get to find out why exactly so many people nerd out about it. And hopefully, after you make that investment, you'll have something with a rad story behind it.
