Vincero Watches was founded after its co-founders were unable to find affordable watches that had the same quality as luxury brands like Rolex and Tag Heuer. The company decided to position itself as an alternative to more expensive watch brands by offering watches with more features for less money. This makes Vincero watches an attractive option for avid watch wearers who want top-notch features without the high price tag.
The packaging for the Vincero Collective is great, and one of my favorite parts about this watch. It’s a magnetic box that opens on two sides to reveal some extra information on the watch inside. I love it when a company doesn’t just throw a cheap plastic box in there and calls it good enough but actually makes some effort to make the packaging match the quality level of their watches.
The Vincero Brand
Something that I’ve noticed about the Vincero Collective’s is that they all seem to have a great weight and balance on them. Not only do they look good, but they feel good as well. This isn’t something I can say for most of the fashion watches we see coming out these days. Most of those brands use cheap materials and build quality so their watch feels light and flimsy whereas the Vinceros actually feel like real high-quality pieces on your wrist.
Something I always like to see in a watch is an automatic movement. The Vincero Collective’s all feature the Miyota 8215 which is one of my favorite movements for this price range. There are no batteries and it requires less maintenance than most other watches that we typically see at the $250 price point.
One area where you can definitely tell there was attention to detail when designing these watches was in their durability and overall build quality. They’ve got a 5 ATM rating so they’ll be totally fine when you get them wet or take them out in the rain, but something else that stood out to me about their resistance to water was how well they fit on your wrist when wearing them
Dial Design & Quality
The dials on the Vincero Collective’s are really well designed and present a great amount of detail. I love how they’re not cluttered with useless features but instead focused solely on what actually matters. They all feature easily readable subdials without any info on them other than the markers.
Finishing and Case Style
Swiss Watch manufacturers generally pride themselves on the finishing and case designs of their watches. With the Vincero Collective, they’ve done a great job here as well with all pieces featuring some really impressive polishing that shine up to a nice mirror-like finish when you’re in bright light. I also love how they paid attention to detail and didn’t just use the same pattern on every watch, but instead changed it up a bit with each one so you can easily tell them apart.
Design Philosophy and Watches for Men
One thing that stood out to me about the Vincero Collective is their attention to detail on these watches. I love how they’ve managed to capture everything you come to expect from luxury watches but at a price point that anyone can afford. This isn’t some cheap fashion watch or off-brand knockoff, this is a real luxury watch with all the detailing and components you’d expect from brands like Rolex or Tag Heuer but for less than half of what you might pay for another brand name watch.
Design Philosophy and Watches for Women
One area where I feel like Vincero has done a great job of capturing that luxury watch look is with their women’s pieces. Everything from the designs to the dials has managed to capture the essence of what makes up a high-quality watch while still paying respect to some of the design elements that are typically seen on more expensive watches for women.
So, Is The Vincero Worth It?
At first, I was really skeptical about Vincero Collective’s watches and jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else that bashed the brand. It wasn’t until I actually came across their website and started looking around to see what they had to offer that my opinion changed.
I think anytime you take a luxury item like designer watches for men or women and try to bring it down to an affordable price point, there are going to be sacrifices made in order for you to meet that goal. However, where other companies typically just cut corners or use lower quality materials, Vincero has done a really great job of balancing everything out by offering high-quality pieces at prices that anyone can afford.
