Fabulous Vintage

13Feb10

As friends and customers of Watch Me Go will know, our vintage stock is probably what we’re proudest of and what makes us stand out from the rest of the watch retailers on the web. We spend many a weekend travelling the country to source great old watches, and we love it when we find something beautiful, unusual and stylish.

We also try to spend a bit of time looking into fashion, design, what people are wearing on the street and other trends – and in terms of vintage style this search has led us to some really great websites. We thought now would be a good time to share with you some of our favourites…

With Valentine’s day tomorrow, what better card than one that’s inspired by art deco or Victorian design, and hand made? Slater Sparke create gorgeous cards and stationery for any occasion – so if you get a proposal tomorrow, you know where to look for your wedding invitations.

For everything from home wares to clothes and collectables, we really like the easy-to-navigate site of Steptoes Antiques. A brilliant selection and, even better, they’re from my home town of Leeds.

For any of you ever needing sartorial inspiration, relationship advice or instruction on etiquette, The Chap magazine has all the answers for the modern gent. Their website is also a trove of good tailors and other useful (and endangered) services for a more refined age.

Finally, Retro Wow is a great resource full of articles about life in Britain in the 50s, 60s and 70s – from the mainstream to the quirky!
