Here are five watches that, in my opinion, would be perfect as the basis for a modern re-edition. They range from watches released half a century ago to watches that have been on the market for only two decades. (And of course, as always, please use the comment box below to let us know which old watches you would like to see a watch brand re-issue for modern times.)
1. Longines Chronograph Caliber 13ZN
Longines watches have an extremely interesting history. With its Heritage collection, the brand has managed to re-issue some of its most beautiful vintage watches. Although Longines already has launched the Heritage 1951 chronograph watch and a Telemeter Chronograph, a nice re-edition of its Chronograph Caliber 13ZN would be awesome. This would mean that Longines would have to source and use the old caliber, though. Even though I can imagine a re-edition like that would come with a high price tag, it might still be cheaper than a good-condition, vintage chronograph caliber 13ZN.
