Varbar Manual Wind

Varbar Manual Wind

On a daily basis, we are inundated with requests for our suggestions on finding the "perfect" vintage dress watch. There are of course a multitude of possibilities when considering fine men's timepieces from the past century, but our criteria remain consistent.

A proper dress watch should be thin and unobtrusive, understatedly cased, and feature a simple dial layout without unnecessary complication or clutter. Furthermore, it is entirely unnecessary to spend your whole watch budget on a dress piece - there are literally hundreds of fantastic options for relatively little money. Be it Early American, Japanese, or Swiss in origin, so long as these criteria are met, you're on the right track.

We'd like to give who a long spiel about this Varbar, but in all truthfulness, we don't know much about the brand, which seems to have been lost to the sands of time. What we can tell you is that it;s a lovely Swiss made timepiece in a contemporary sized case, and makes a fantastic dress watch for those of us who aren;t looking to spend thousands.

The Varbar is a great example of the affordable classics that exist in the world of vintage watches. With a handsome case, gold hands and funky numerals, it's ready become your go-to dress piece.
