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.

My watch crystal broke after receiving it as a gift, and it turned out there was a problem in the manufacturing. I contacted About Vintage, and they sent a new one, no questions asked. Pretty much a model of customer service.
A lovely watch, nicely proportioned and well thought out.
The dial is clean, clear and legible, and the blue hands and red text add a lovely classy 'pop' of colour. Slim, and a lovely 'homage' to the introduction of the quartz movement in 1969.
All in all a classy dress watch that I would highly recommend.
1969 Vintage, Steel / White
A perfect Christmas gift.
