Men’s Retro Inspired Watches are a brilliant choice if you are looking for an interesting piece with a story to tell. Based on pioneering models from the back catalogues of heritage watch brands, these watches were so good the first time around, brands have re-imagined them for today.

It could be that the design defines a period in time or the technology or the materials used were ground-breaking. Either way, retro inspired watches benefit from cool designs combined with the modern day specifications that their predecessors lacked.

Both the Citizen Promaster Bullhead Chronograph and the Seiko Prospex “Willard” Auto Diver look back to the 70’s. The Promaster pays homage to a retro 1973 model whereas the Seiko is a re-creation of their famous Diver’s watch from 1970. Both are Limited Editions. Going further back in time to the 1950’s, the Michel Herbelin Inspiration 1947 Watch is based on an original design from the company’s archives. Details such as the pointed hour markers, domed crystal and fluted blue cabochon crown give the watch a vintage appeal. Finally, Oris goes even further back in time to 1938. The Oris 80th Anniversary Edition Big Crown Pointer Date celebrates the 80 years of the company’s iconic pilot’s wristwatch. Designed for a pilot to use whilst wearing gloves, this modern recreation has a bronze case for a lovely old world charm.

For anyone who loves a watch that is a little bit different, we have a Men’s Retro-Inspired Watch for you. Our handpicked selection are from the UK’s finest Independent Retailers. Shop today and support an inspiring independent business.
