Watches (remember those timepieces people used to wear strapped to their wrists before cell phones?) are making a comeback. Omega opened a boutique on Michigan Avenue last November, WWD has noticed an uptick in the luxury timepiece market (subscription required), and now Gilt Man, the male domain of online sample sale behemoth Gilt Groupe, is offering a selection of vintage pieces tomorrow on the site starting at 11 AM (you must register on the site to access the sale). Chosen by Ben Clymer, the guy behind the luxury watch blog Hodinkee, the pieces in the sale include vintage Rolexes and other examples of classic American-style timepieces. As cool as your iPhone is, you have to admit these watches have something it doesn't.
