The Largest Online Marketplace for Luxury Watches Confirms the Vintage Trend
Karlsruhe, 03.12.2018 - Luxury watches continue to enjoy widespread popularity, even in 2018. So, is it all about new models from Rolex or Omega, or are vintage collector's items also coveted? Chrono24 is the world's leading online marketplace for luxury watches. With over 400,000 watches listed by sellers in over 100 counties, 12 million monthly visitors, and around $1.5 billion in total transaction volume in 2018, Chrono24 represents the international nature of the luxury watch trade. This online marketplace thus presents the top watch trends of 2018.

In today's digitized world, wearing mechanical watches is a way to take a step back from bright screens and return to a simpler time. The particularly high demand for watches from the 1940s to 1980s exhibits this desire for handmade items from times gone by. Vintage watches appeal to a wide audience: from those with a sense of nostalgia to the avid collector hunting for pieces from past decades. Over the last five years, the demand for vintage watches on Chrono24 has increased by some 160%. Within this wider category, some trends have emerged. Searches for vintage chronographs with a stopwatch function have increased on Chrono24 by almost 300% since 2013. However, the frontrunner of all vintage watches is the reliable diving watch. Diving watches have experienced an extraordinary increase in search volume, which has grown by just under 500% in the last five years.
This development doesn't surprise Chrono24's CEO, Tim Stracke: "We're experiencing a return to traditional watchmaking craftsmanship, as is clearly demonstrated in our numbers. In 2018, we were able to increase our transaction volume by almost 30% compared to the previous year. Our marketplace now contains over 400,000 luxury watches of every type and in every price category. Around 4,500 of those are vintage collector's items. According to our analyses, the demand for pre-loved watches, as we like to call them, will continue to increase. The pre-loved watch market currently sees an annual volume of around $17 billion worldwide."
