1969 HISTORY1969 changed everything. It was the year the world’s first Quartz watch was released – and this new type of movement changed the watch industry completely. This movement rewrote horologic history with its remarkable accuracy, smaller size, while at the same time making wristwatches affordable.
Our first unisex collection is designed around such Quartz movement, together with vintage details in form of a slightly curved dial and a super-domed glass. Combining this with a ‘humble’ dream of creating yet another historical impact, we named this timepiece 1969 Vintage.

Very nice watch, simple design, well-balanced for a smaller wrist.
I've been searching for a classic-looking watch as I decided my prior smartwatch wasn't for me, and getting frustrated by complications and charging it when I just wanted to tell the time. I love the vintage style, and was okay with investing in a quality piece, but was out of my price range for a vintage watch with the style I was looking for. I'm so grateful to have stumbled upon About Vintage and fell in love with this design! Since getting it, I've felt more elevated & elegant in my day-to-day style and have been over the moon excited and pleased with the quality! I love the story behind the company, and you can tell they really care about what they're doing, not just trying to make a profit. It's a nice change of pace to see in this day and age, and really refreshing. I absolutely love this watch and will easily get another later down the line. Only thing is the leather band hasn't fully broken in for me yet, but I know that's to be expected and will just take time, so I'm not worried about it.
The watch is really sleek, taking care of all the details to perfection.
