Refurbished Vintage Timepieces in Brooklyn
Throwback style from Throne Watches
There lies a certain mystique in the vintage watch. The elusive questions: “What men have worn this before me? What were their stories? Where did they, uh, keep it?”
The place to introduce such mystique into your life: Brooklyn’s Throne Watches, peddling refurbished timepieces from the ‘50s and ‘60s, now available online and at their Brooklyn showroom.
Throne’s operation is simple: they rescue handsome vintage watch faces from secondhand stores and estate sales, tune them up, and add brawny, handmade Horween leather straps.
The result: an artfully patina’d piece perfect for casual weekend wear — throw one of these on with a pair of beat up jeans, a white T-shirt and boots and you’re in business.
And at under $400, adding one to your rotation is a no-brainer.
Throne guarantees their watches for a year, and are happy to walk you through their collection at their homey Williamsburg showroom, which also boasts a range of vintage clothing and locally made knickknackery.
They also design their own house line of American-made fresh-from-scratch timepieces should vintage not necessarily be your thing. We’re particularly partial to the cobalt blue.
Up to you to give that one a proper story.
