All timepieces contain stories; vintage watches contain undeniably better ones. But buying a vintage watch can be tricky; ensuring authenticity, value and condition are not always easy. We partnered with the experts at Analog/Shift to remove that difficulty, curating only vetted, tested and ready-to-wear timepieces in the Gear Patrol Store. Below are three watches selected by a Gear Patrol editor with fall wardrobes in mind. Check out some of the storied, classic timepieces below, and think about making one of them a new addition to your wrist.
