New watches? Vintage watches? Price range?

I'm going to assume you're looking for more affordable alternatives otherwise you would just buy the watches you listed and this post would be "Check out my vintage aesthetic watches".

Anyway, lip makes modern watches with a very vintage styling. Stuff like their Himalaya model.

They range about $200 iirc.

The LIP Himalaya uses a quartz movement though :(
I'm probably going to get the infamous Cocktail Time

probably sometime towards the later part of the year (Going on Vacation in April wooo there goes my $).
the tanking Canadian Dollar isn't helping me very much.

Yeah, quartz but $200 though!

Anyway, the cocktail time is really swanky in the best way. I love the way that thing looks but it's a bit too thick to pull off the vintage wrist feel. Still a great choice.

+1 for Nivrel. The Stowa Partitio is another option. Junkers and Zeppelin are also quite vintage-y. The Zeppelin Flatline borrows heavily from the GO 60s Senator.

Thanks for posting this. Lovely watch with a proper vintage appeal. Must get one of these - 35mm/18mm lugs/Ronda 1069 movement (though not sure if 2 or 6 jewel variant - am assuming 6 for the price unless someone knows different) and lots of case/dial variants. 179 EUR ex shipping from Lip France is too good a deal to miss (no connection with Lip BTW)

If you can go to the next level in prices past the cocktail time, you could check out Longines current Saint-Imier and Heritage options :

These are my two "vintage-like" watches, though the Longines isn't really a dress watch. I quite like the vintage look, but don't quite care for the yellowing of vintage watches.

That's just it! I need more money.
Yeah I like the vintage look but I don't like the oxidized hands and yellowing of the dial.
