What’s a birthyear watch?
Basically it’s a watch produced in the same year as you were born. That’s the whole point of a birthyear watch, a watch that adds a bit of value for yourself or your loved ones, with a special production year. We’re getting a lot of requests for special watches, with some details and a specific production year, to make sure it’s the right watch for their selves or their kids when it comes to a birthyear watch. If you’re born in 1990, just check the watches produced in 1990 and get your hands on one. That should be simple, right?
The truth is: it isn’t. And that’s the charm of getting your hands on a birthyear watch before 2000, since not all reference numbers and serials can be read with a specific production year. If you’re buying a new watch (or modern watch) for your kids for example, it’s way easier since you can refer to a specific year, such as 2023. That’s another thing that’s requested a lot in the luxury watch market: get me a watch that suits my needs and comes from year xxxx, since that was the year our child was born, graduated or some sort of other specific reason to hold on to that year.
