This post is brought to you by the Vincero Collective.
We love the Apple Watch. But sometimes you want a timepiece that doesn’t look quite so digital — and doesn’t pester you with notifications.
Consider the merits of a classic watch if you’re shopping for friends and family this holiday season. A high-quality timepiece — like the ones from Vincero Collective — is a fashion accessory that will be worn for years to come, and perhaps even passed down for generations (without ever needing a software upgrade).
4 reasons to buy a watch that’s not an Apple Watch
Vincero is revolutionizing the way beautiful watches get made, and making them accessible for everyday wear. Here are four reasons we suggest getting one of these handsome, classic watches.
1. It’s actually pretty nice to step away from constant notifications. Sure, an Apple Watch keeps you connected to your phone — even when you’re away from it. But how far away from your phone do you ever truly get? Spend the holidays consciously spending time with the people you care about the most, face to face — without distracting notifications from your email/social media feed.
2. It’s great to disconnect and still be able to tell the time. That email from your boss? The terse text message from your grouchy friend? You don’t need to see those right away. But you do probably need to know what time it is. Stay in the moment, and avoid being late while you do.
3. A watch becomes a unique part of your style and identity. Vincero Collective wants nothing to do with staid, minimalist timepieces that say nothing about a person’s individuality. These bold, elegant watches make a true statement.
4. A classic watch stays in style forever. While Apple Watches are guaranteed to evolve every time Tim Cook gets up for his annual Apple keynote, classic wristwatches are a long-term investment. The team at Vincero is well aware that a watch is a lifetime purchase. That’s why they vow to never sacrifice quality when it comes to producing watches at great prices. By cutting out the middleman retailer, they deliver twice the quality of watches sold at the same price point.
About Vincero watches
The Vincero Collective started with the desire to deliver an incredibly high-quality product that pairs non-outsourced craftsmanship with affordability. Specializing in high-quality manufacturing techniques (their watches feature marble inlays!), Vincero operates like a startup by selling these gorgeous watches only online. That means you get an ethically made and sourced watch, without a retail markup.
Vincero believes in customer service, too. If you encounter any issues with any product that needs repair, just send it back. Vincero will fix it in-house in California (forget the Genius Bar). But with more than 4,500 five-star reviews, we bet that issues don’t arise too often.
