Park & Bond Vintage Watches
To own something that is ‘vintage’ goes beyond some statement or style. A vintage item is about the past, about clutching onto a little piece of history and keeping it alive. It is such an important part of our culture that half the things designed today are replicas of what has already been. As humans we need that security, we need to be able to feel the lasting value of daily things. It is why that rocking chair a grandmother sits in is so valuable, why that American flag which is passed down through a family so important.
There is a trend to look at vintage good distastefully, as some vain attempt at ironic relevance. But to possess vintage items is to acknowledge impermanence, to value the great things of the past. It is the most humble thing a person can do.
Enjoy these beautiful timepieces gathered by Park & Bond and remember to enjoy what the past has to offer.
