Wenonah Wilderness Canoe

The Wilderness is a solo canoe that can take you far away from it all. Brilliantly designed for extended solo trips it portages well, paddles efficiently, carries plenty of gear and gives a dry ride in rough waters. Its well rounded stability and moderate rocker make it a great down-river boat while inspiring confidence whether on a loaded tour or evening paddle.

  • Luke Rottman's guide to deciding and finding that first item for your vintage watch collection


Written by: Luke RottmanFounder and Executive Editor of The Watch Adviser

Question: I am currently a freshman in college and I'm looking to buy my first vintage watch. Omega and Rolex interest me, but at my budget of $2000-$2500 there are so many watches to choose from that I can't differentiate what's worth the money and what's not. What are some good options for what I'm willing to spend? Thank you.
-Turner

Answer: Turner, great question. Before I go over some excellent wristwatches that best fit your ideal price range, I'd like to briefly share something with you.

Go back three and a half years and this is probably what I would've said to you if you asked me about Rolex's Submariner and Omega's Speedmaster: The Submariner is a time-only Rolex, originally intended to be worn by divers, and is widely-known for its appearance in eleven James Bond films. The Speedmaster is a classic Omega chronograph that earned a cult status after passing a series of NASA's intense qualification tests, sent on the first manned mission to the moon, and returning to earth intact. Pretty straightforward, right? But when it came down to recognizing the historical changes and continuities of each watch, I was clueless. To further, and more clearly, explain my point using that Sub vs. Speedy comparison, I couldn't recognize the differences between a 1680 Sub and a 16800 transitional Sub or a 105.002 Speedmaster and 105.003 Speedmaster. But in time, I learned. So don't worry about not knowing all the little details at first. All you have to know for now is, like you said, "what's worth the money and what's not."


Now, let's get down to the good stuff.
