Longines Conquest Heritage
This beautiful 35mm vintage inspired dress watch harps back to the original Longines Conquest from the 1950s, typically with these heritage re-issues the brands cannot resist changing a fair few things, whether that be the size or subtle upgrades to make it more "modern". I am pleased to say Longines resisted this temptation and created the perfect modern version of the classic watch!
The dimensions are basically identical apart from this watch being slightly thinner thanks to a modern and slimmer automatic movement, they even kept the domed acrylic crystal, probably one of the most attractive parts of a vintage wristwatch. Despite the smaller case dimensions on paper it wears so well, easily can compete with any 37mm watch on wrist presence. This is thanks to the thicker lugs, thicker case and overall design. The perfect Longines then and the perfect Longines now.
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's full box and papers and comes on a new long strap. The crystal is acrylic and has a few marks, but this can be polished up. The watch is running well.
This Longines is easily my favourite modern Longines that they offer, having handled and sold the vintage reference of this watch I can say they truly did the original justice, right down to the size of the case. I am tempted to add one of these to my collection so take this before I do!

In 1985 TAG purchased majority shares of Heuer and the brand then became TAG Heuer, regardless of your opinion on that business move one thing that cannot be argued is how damn cool this watch is! It's a unique one as the 844/2 was being manufactured during this transitional time of Heuer, so models post 1985 will have TAG Heuer on the dial, clasp and box! Therefore this one is pre 1985 as Heuer is the only thing stated.
The large lume plots on the dial have turned evenly fluffy and a beautiful eggshell colour that matches perfectly with the hands, the overall condition is great for a used vintage watch and there is minimal stretch on the original jubilee bracelet. Now sure, design ques have certainly been borrowed from the Rolex Submariner, but in a 42mm case that has a shape reminiscent of a Seiko Turtle (I use this as reference as I suspect most of you have tried a Turtle on) means it couldn't be further away from a Rolex Submariner. Provided is aslo a Colareb strap with a Heuer buckle, you'll be hard stretched to not find a combination you don't like for this watch! My personal preference is the Jubilee!
So don't hesitate on this one, pick it up and enjoy yourself a beautiful vintage Heuer at an unique time for the brand! Also at a price that is less than a lot of TAG Heuer's modern day offerings, what's not to like?!
The reference 16610 debuted in 1988 to replace the Submariner 1680. The changes included a Glossy Black dial as opposed to the flat black of the 1680. It was upgraded to white gold markers around Superluminova. One of the biggest changes was the sapphire crystal, a big change to the acrylic.
This reference 16610 is from 2000 and is a P serial, this means you get all the above mentioned upgrades but you also get solid end links. This makes a world of a difference when on wrist, you get a more comfortable experience. It is also in amazing condition. Coming with it's box and papers, outer box, all booklets and hand tags, the only thing missing is the Steel Anchor.
Points of Mention
The watch would have been serviced in 2014 when the previous owner of this watch purchased it from another UK based watch dealer, it is running very well still and is in great cosmetic condition. The bracelet is experiencing some stretch which is normal for a watch of this age. All spare links are provided with the watch. The watch was originally purchased on the 30/10/2000 in Pittsburg US.
This is one of the best condition 16610 I have seen. The Submariner is a watch I always felt both love and hate for, I felt like I saw them a lot and wouldn't enjoy wearing one for that reason. When this came in for sale I wore it for a day and I can safely say my mind has been changed forever! If I was to go for a Pre-Ceramic Submariner (Which would be my choice over the new Ceramic Submariner) I would go with this reference as it's easily a modern watch with near vintage appeal!
This 1974 CWC was assigned to the British Royal Navy, specifically the Fleet Air Arm which is one of five arms of the Royal Navy. This is one of those watches that if watches could speak we would all be in for an incredibly long and interesting night, the stores it could tell would be powerful. On wrist you really get a sense of utilitarianism, coming in at 39mm with a very legible dial, a solid case design and paired on a NATO... You can't help but feel a sense of power with this on the wrist.
CWC has been providing the military with watches for many years and as you can imagine not many survive the day to day life of a military person, therefore for us to have an example of this watch is something quite special. We are honoured to offer this for sale and we have confidence that whomever buys this, they will enjoy it as much as we have.
Points of Mention
This watch was serviced in 2018 and is running well. The case and crystal are in unpolished condition and therefore signs of age and use can be seen. Some of the luminescent material on the dial has begun to fade away and even fall off, none of it is loose in the dial or movement. The running seconds hand in the subsidiary dial at 9o'clock has been replaced with a stainless steel arrow hand.
It is no secret I am a huge fan of CWC and military watches, it is also no secret I am not a fan of NATO straps... BUT, I seriously enjoyed wearing this watch and switching out NATO strap... I think a military watch may change my mind on them! I believe this is a truly great buy, so much history packed into such a small object.
BWC is a old watch company founded in 1924 and still makes watches today, BWC stands for Buttes Watch Company as the founder (Arthur Charlet) was born in Buttes, Switzerland. The company is most known for their chronographs from the 70s featuring Lemania and Landeron movements and often bright colours, which was very fitting for the time.
This model, also from the 70s, features a dial that has definitely stood the test of time. A beautiful silver tone with black subdial, dark hands and indices with a white second hand to contrast against the colours perfectly. I truly think this is a timeless design, very similar to the Heuer Carrera but in a lovely 35mm case which wears perfectly on the wrist.
Points of Mention
This watch is titled (NOS?) as it is as close to New Old Stock you can get, it has been worn but very few times and has very few signs of wear on the polished case. The watch runs well though service history is unknown. I sold this exact watch last year to a collector who has now brought it back to me to sell for him to make room in his collection, he truly enjoyed his time with the watch and kept it in great condition.
I genuinely love the design of this watch and I think it's perfect for the person looking for a nice vintage watch that is in good condition but also could potentially pass as a modern design. If my budget was endless this would be staying with me and coming out on the odd occasion.
This watch is 58 years old... And yet still looks so perfectly suited on the wrist as I'm sure it did 58 years ago. The Omega Seamaster is easily one of the most iconic and instantly recognisable watches alongside the Speedmaster and yet can still be head for a great price. This 1961 Seamaster is a desirable reference 14389 featuring applied roman numerals and subsidiary second hand, beautiful even patina throughout the dial adding to the charm. Seamaster caseback with Omega signed crown and featured on a leather NATO with an Omega signed buckle, what more could you possibly want?
As we all know Omega released a special edition Omega Seamaster 1948 based on the original Seamaster from 1948, this this isn't that reference it's pretty close. I think we will see the prices of vintage Seamasters continue to grow past what they already have in a short amount of time!
Points of Mention
The watch was serviced in 2017 and is in good working order. The dial does have patina as you can see, please view the images and make your own decision on that, we personally love it. The watch is paired on a leather NATO with an Omega signed buckle. Omega Seamaster caseback and Omega signed crown. Overall great condition with some signs of wear to the case, which is to be expected for a 58 year old watch!
This is my favourite reference of vintage Omega Seamaster as it combines all the things we love about the model but is still one of the most affordable versions! The patina on the dial is beautiful, the case is nice. Plus this is a definite strap monster! If I had the cash, this wouldn't even be displayed on the store right now!
Whilst certainly a watch that won't be to everyone's taste the Luminox brand has a very dedicated and serious following amount the watch community. As stated on their website "Luminox has been the watch of choice for the professionals like Navy SEALs, expert counter-terrorism operatives Scott Cassel, the US Coast Guard, Law enforcement divers and many more for the past 25 years".
This model features Tritium tubes which allows for better and longer legibility when diving, it also doesn't require a charge of light, a very fun feature and when in the dark it increases in glow.
Points of Mention
The watch will be fitted with a fresh battery before being shipped. The watch comes with it's original box, papers, guarantee card and even it's original rubber strap and hand tag. The all black coated case is in good condition with very signs of wear.
Whilst this is a design of watch I would never personally own I did find it was the easiest watch to photograph as did Harry when he was doing the professional store shots. I could imagine using this watch as a runaround watch or a gym watch.
Glycine is a brand that has been around for a long time, since 1914 (Rough time to start a company) but is most known for their Airman series which debuted in 1953 which was designed for pilots with useful GMT functions. The watch measures in at a case size of 39mm which is a wise choice when you consider the lug design with the extra crown that locks the bezel in place to make sure of no change, which could be as detrimental for a pilot as the moving of the bezel for a diver.
The watch gets even better, with the added security of a locking bezel and a screwdown crown, the watch achieves 200m of water resitancy and can easily combat the water as well as the skies. If you are looking for a GMT but want to avoid the typical design, look no further!
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box, hand tags and cleaning cloth but no paperwork. The watch was purchased in November 2016 and therefore has no service history but is running well. The condition is also very good for a pre-owned watch.
Whilst this is definitely not my usuaul design choice for a watch, when putting the watch on wrist to take some photos I find myself only taking it off after a full day of enjoying it. It wears so well, offers a unique design with the rubber bezel and extra crown and most all has a great design.
Dan Henry is a brand that has been taking the collecting community by storm and proven incredibly popular, this 1970 was no exception. The watch is based on the super compressor divers of the 1970s and has done a very good job of paying homage to them whilst adding modern features. One thing immediately noticeable once the watch is in hand is the double domed mineral glass that is sapphire coated to make it more hard.
If you are looking for an affordable super compressor watch with heritage design but modern qualities then look no further, this watch offers an insane amount for the price, not least of which is an automatic movement.
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's original box, watch sleeve and unstamped guarentee card. The watch is used but in very good condition and working well.
This is the first Dan Henry I have had the chance to have for longer than 10 minutes, I have to say I am very impressed. From handling them at various events I was quite impressed, but getting some proper wrist time has proven how nice the watch is. Also don't be scared away by the dimensions, the watch wears very well even on smaller wrists.
Zenith offer some of the best value in vintage watches right now and it is a market that is growing in interest from collectors, therefore I suspect we will see prices creep up over the next few years. I have named this watch the Zenith "Calatrava" as the case dimensions are not only similar to a Patek Philippe Calatrava the overall design is very similar, the watch is a clean dress watch.
I believe the watch to be from the late 1970s based on design, the condition indicates this watch was kept in storage for most of it's life and the gold plating is in great condition as is the white dial.
Points of Mention
This watch comes with an original, time period correct, Zenith box. The watch comes paired on a new Crocodile strap with the original gold plated Zenith buckle. There is no service history though the watch is working well. The gold plating is also in incredible condition as is the dial, I suspect this watch was rarely worn.
Easily one of the best gold plated dress watches I have seen in a long time, not only in condition but also in design. It is an absolute treat on the wrist and works so well with any occasion when paired on a lighter strap, put it on a black leather strap and you easily have yourself the ultimate dress watch.
Bell & Ross are famous for their square watches, but occasionally they release watches like this. It is near impossible to find this reference today, being the "Desert Type" & Limited to 999 pieces. The watch features a sandy colour that translates over to the strap paired on the watch, this colour combination is surprisingly versatile with nearly everything. Whilst a large watch at 43mm and fairly thick too it wears so well on the wrist, that is due to the way the lugs curve down but also how the caseback sinks into the wrist.
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box and guarantee card. 2 extra Bell & Roll leather straps will be provided too with the one buckle currently on the strap. This is a limited edition model from 2011 to 999 pieces, this is number 126. The watch is in good condition and running okay, however we have no service history.
Whilst Bell & Ross are most known for their square watches, I am personally not a fan of them and how they wear on my small wrist. Which is why I am so glad they stray from the square occasionally to provide something as lovely as this! When I first saw a photo of this watch I wasn't too impressed, when it arrived I couldn't take it off! Whilst large it wore perfectly, looked great and overall incredibly versatile. It's a watch I would consider adding to the personal collection one day!
BRAND NEW, WRAPPED AND SEXY! This is one very special limited edition watch from DOXA, the Searambler 300T "Silver Lung", this is the much anticipated watch to follow suit from the "Black Lung" they released in 2017! This, just like the "Black Lung" sold insanely fast and left a LOT of people wanting one. The "Silver Lung" is designed in collaboration with the dive gear manufacturer Aqua Lung. This is a vintage inspired piece to their watch from 1967 and was released to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of that incredible collaboration! Not only that but this is a celebration of Aqua Lung's 75th Anniversary! So lot's to celebrate in this watch that is limited to 300!
The wrap sticker was taken off to photograph the watch for your viewing pleasure, but be reassured it was put immediately back on and put away! This is one hell of a watch and feels absolutely incredible in hand, the finishing is superb and high quality! Overall I'm VERY impressed! I have no doubt there was a LOT of people who missed out on the opportunity to get one of these, I am very happy to be able to offer you that same change to get yourself the watch in untouched condition! Don't hesitate with this one, of the 300 I highly doubt any others will pop up and if they do they certainly won't be brand new!
Very excited to bring this beautiful vintage Longines from 1953 with a beautiful white dial! The condition of this one is out of this world and truly looks incredible, as you can see it wears on the wrist like a glove, truly works! Wears so thin to the wrist with it's hand wound cal 27.0, the gold indices and hands really play with the light so well. This is one of those vintages watches you will get and not be able to part with for a LONG time it is that good. The watch speaks for itself, though if you have any questions just email me! Or just buy it and not regret pulling the trigger quick enough.
If you say vintage and IWC I will immediately get excited! For the price I think they offer some of the very best designs on the market, easily! This has the Caliber 8531 which was used in the Ingenieur 666, so no slack of a movement that's for sure! All this is a housed in a 14K Gold case, there are no hallmarkings however due to the market it was sold in originally. The completely original and untouched dial is developing some age and in my opinion adds so much charm and character!
The heft of this case is incredible and the thick lugs and case are in great condition, the original fish crown is intact. Nice clean stainless steel back and date at 3o'clock. The watch comes on a new black leather strap and will have in the package the original IWC buckle! I seriously believe in the value proposition of a beautiful gold watch like this, get it whilst they're still relatively affordable for a gold IWC!
Vintage Seiko is always something special and whenever we get one in we all get very excited, however this one put us dead in our tracks. The design of this watch is so well thought out and shows what Seiko do well. The crosshair silver dial has developed a lovely and even patina, the gold tone hands are in great condition. But where this watch gets me is that date, it is a black date with gold text, how damn cool is that? Then a gold tone inner bezel, this watch is just beautiful.
If you are a Seiko fan then this watch is easily a no-brainer! However if you haven't given Seiko a chance in the past I would say here is your chance with a beautiful reference and one with a history that can continue to fascinate for years to come!
Points of Mention
This is sold as a watch only, no box or paperwork is provided and there is no service history. The watch features a gold plating which is showing signs of wear and discolouration in places, however it doesn't look out of place in my opinion due to the watch clearly looking old. The dial has developed an even patina, please see the photos to make up your own decision. The watch is in running condition and comes paired on an original leather Seiko strap.
I love this watch. I think if my description didn't show that then I don't know what will. I mean just look at the photos! If this watch had a "Prestigious Swiss" brand name on it I easily think it could be 10x the price and depending on that brand people wouldn't even take a double look and just buy! Snatch this up.
This beautiful watch features a "Sun-ray blue triple stepped dial" which allows for the most interesting of colours when in different lighting environments, when on the wrist I found myself just moving it around to see what different colours and reflections happened. The watch is named Hudson after an English Sea Explorer and Navigator during the early 17th century, his name was Henry Hudson.
The watch features a perfectly proportioned 37mm case with, the now iconic, bronze on the crown which Farer do for all their watches. Powered by the hand wound ETA 7001 which allows for the slim case but also a lovely movement to look at under the sapphire crystal caseback. It is also limited to only 100 and this is number 5, a very early edition!
Points of Mention
This watch does have an engraving on the caseback, it has been blanked for the privacy of the owner, but image with it can be provided on request. The watch comes with it's full box and papers and the watch is in great condition right down to the strap being like new.
I am a HUGE fan of this style of watch, the cushion case wears perfectly on the wrist and sits very low. I love the shade of blue but the extra pops of colour don't do it for me, but I know many people absolutely love it and once on wrist it really doesn't bother me at all. I have been a fan of what Farer have been doing and this is the first one I've had the chance to have on wrist for a full day, I am very impressed and I have no doubt the new owner will be too.
