Seiko MarineMaster MM300 SBDX001
The easy competitor to any Swiss Dive Watch? This MM300 features an amazing Monobloc case which is finished to a Grand Seiko standard, the weight is impressive both on and off the wrist. The dial features a lovely jet black colour that matches the bezel perfectly, whilst quite thick and bulky it's design allows it to hug the wrist well regardless of wrist size. Inside is the ever-reliable 8L35 which features a 50 hour power-reserve and runs flawlessly. The bracelet is finished to an incredibly high standard and the clasp gives the feel of a true dive watch.
This being part of the Prospex line means it is a real tool watch for divers, this reference doesn't have the logo on the dial which will be a big plus to most out there. The crystal features an inner dome and lots of AR coating, this makes for easily legibility at all times and under all lighting.
Points of Mention
This is a used watch, however it is in incredible condition. It comes with it's full box & papers, plus all the extras like Rubber Strap and Hand Tag. All spare links are provided.
Whilst I am certainly a small watch guy and on paper I would steer VERY far away from a 44mm case with a 15mm thickness I do have to say I am always amazed by the way Seiko manages to make these huge watches so comfortable and conform to the wrist better than some brands make 40mm watches fit! If you're in the market for a serious diver with all the bells and whistles but want to venture away from the typical Swiss names we all know, I can easily recommend this and I believe you'll be just as amazed as me.

I have now sold and handled a fair few examples of the Combat Sub by Glycine and each time they never fail to amaze me in build quality and overall how well they wear on the wrist, they have a slim profile with tapering lugs that just hug the wrist. The watch offers everything you could want in a dive watch, great water resistency, build quality, lots of lume... But majority of people who wear dive watches don't dive with them, so it's a great thing they also nailed the aesthetics of this watch.
Easily a great option for someone looking for a quality diver watch on a budget, even if budget isn't an issue I think this watch brings a lot to the table. Treat yourself and realise why some people go mad for these!
Points of Mention
The overall condition of this watch is very good, few hairline scratches here and there but nothing major at all. The bezel has some difficulty moving, it can be very, very stiff. The watch comes paired on it's original bracelet, all spare links included.
If I was to buy an affordable diver watch I would very easily be tempted to buy one of these over a Seiko Diver, it offers more in build quality in my opinion. Plus I just really like how the watch looks, your traditional diver aesthetics you'd come to expect but with a little bit more, plus the options for these are endless!
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.
Do you love the idea of a Gold Rolex but have a mini heart attack every time you see the price? You're not alone and thankfully the 15505 can offer you the true and honest look of a Gold Rolex which actually being gold plated, thankfully it is a hefty and thick gold plate too! This watch is 31 years old and definitely has been worn within those years, but the case is holding up incredibly well as you can see by the photos! I would say there is easily an entire lifetime of wear left in this case yet before any steel begins to be visible.
This reference has the champagne dial which pairs perfectly with the gold tone of the case, condition of this one is all original and untouched! I would say look no further and treat yourself to a gold Rolex for less than most steel Rolex's today!
Look at the legs on that! I mean it... Those tear drop, arched lugs are to die for! The overall design of this watch really puts a lot of other options for a similar price to shame, for me rectangular art-deco style watches are coming back and coming back strong! Mark my words... But seriously this 14k gold filled Bulova is a real charmer, on the wrist it feels amazing. The lugs make this watch as well as that salmon dial, which I will leave to you to judge! Plus there is something very charming about a vintage signed crown, this watch ticks a lot of boxes for me and I don't doubt it also will for its new owner!
The size of this watch is on the smaller side for a modern watch, but for a watch of it's time it was perfectly proportioned, I would argue it still is and eventually this size will be coming back.

The dial has aged and developed patina, please assess the professional photography to make your own judgement on it and whether you like it or not. The case does bare scratches and only visible fading of the gold is on the tops of the lugs. The crystal is in good overall condition with no large marks. The movement is clean and running, however as stated there is no service history. Paired on a new black calf grain.
I really love this watch, so much so I may be adding a few more to the personal collection and the store over this year! I really do believe art-deco and rectangular watches are coming back and coming back strong! I personally love the dial on this, but like I said I will leave that up to the judgement of you. So add this to your basket, or don't... I'll just enjoy it in the meantime ;)
The Camero is easily one of my favourite model lines that Heuer have done, surprisingly similar to the Carrera in regards to hands and dial, it differs in the fact that it has a 37mm cushion shaped case which fits the wrist perfectly! This model feautures a gold plated case which is showing signs of age but overall is in good condition, the dial is a silver tone in good, original condition! All powered by the Valjoux 7734 which is running well!
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!
We are excited to bring this beautiful Zenith to the store, it is no secret my love for the brand and their vintage watches. I truly believe they offer some of the best value still on the vintage market! This model features such a beautiful and completely original, untouched dial with its original blued hands. It is on the smaller side coming in at 29mm however due to the case shape it wears very well in my opinion.
We believe this watch dates to the 1940s and I have named it a Trench Watch as it crosses the line between a Trench Watch in design and also a Military Watch, however it doesn't sit exactly on one side. This is great for the seasoned collector and also the newbie collector, it offers a lot for such a small price in the grand scheme of watches!
Points of Mention
This watch features a evenly patina'd dial throughout, original blued leaf hands and central seconds hand. The case is made of base metal and is showing some sings of wear, especially on the edges of the case. The stainless steel caseback is showing scratches too, the acrylic crystal is in good condition. The watch has a unknown service history, however it is running and working well.
This is a small watch and I am personally fine wearing small watches, I really enjoy it! However this watch would look amazing for a lady too, if you are not a small watch guy I think you should get this for the special lady in your life, get her into watches! And if your a lady reading this, treat yourself with this beauty!
It's not every day you see on of these gems, the Zodiac Hermetic. Zodiac are a company that have been around for a long time and arguable are most famous for their SeaWolf range which covered many models both vintage and modern. However because most of the focus goes on those references we are left with many different Zodiac watches that go by relatively unnoticed, allowing us to still find them for very fair prices! For example this reference has a very interesting case design, clean attractive dial with an ETA manually wound movement. When you consider that and see the asking price, it's very fair and I suspect people will eventually realise there is a lot more to offer from the brand than just the SeaWolf!
Points of Mention
This watch does feature a gold plated case, being vintage it is showing signs of wear. The dial is in good condition with even aging and no signs of damage, the crystal is the original to the watch and therefore is showing some signs of age but overall is very good. The watch has unknown service history, however it is winding, setting and running okay. Comes paired on a genuine Crocodile strap of high quality.
I really like Zodiac and I think they are doing some interesting things with their new watches, however I am primarily a vintage guy! So for me these vintage watches are amazing, as mentioned above I think there is a LOT of room for people's appreciation to grow for these and therefore I think the prices going up will reflect that! I'd say get them whilst they're cheap!
The first Frédérique Constant for the website and I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised! The build quality is excellent, the detailing on the dial is out of this world and the movement and finish is brilliant. All this for the price is just amazing, especially when you consider what you have to pay to get the same thing from a much larger brand with a more powerful name.
I think the price is justifiable for the dial alone, could photograph it all day long and I have to say, I nearly did! Pick this up if you're looking for a good value watch which will stand out in the room and blow people away!
I am incredibly honoured to bring you, what is in my opinion, the best looking Speedmaster made to date! Housed in the iconic Speedmaster Professional case is a limited edition of 1975 in honour of the 1975 Apollo mission, The ASTP (Apollo-Soyuz Test Project) which was the final manned mission to the moon. This mission was mainly to see if a manned mission between 2 super powers (US & Russia) could be done together and successfully, Mission ASTP started on the 15th of July and returned on the 24th of July 1975.
This watch not only has the most incredible caseback of the Speedmasters but also features a Meteorite dial! So your "Moonwatch" actually has a bit of space on the dial, that to me is insane and so damn cool! Also the best part is that it is limited to 1975, but the fact it has a Meteorite dial actually means no two dials will be the same!
I would say if you are looking for that special Speedmaster that stands out in the crowd of Speedmasters and limited editions, this is the one to get! It hasn't reached the absolutely bonkers prices of the Snoopy (Yet?!) and really stands out in the crowd! Don't wait on this one.
Brand Name. How much does it mean to you? This watch offers everything you could want in a vintage watch... Incredible design, well thought out case dimensions and arguably most importantly, a very reliable movement, in this case it is the ETA 2789-1! I purchased this watch in 2017 and enjoyed my time with it, it was a true test to myself as a collector as I realised that I hold very little to brand name, sure it's nice to look down at your wrist and see that iconic crown. But at the end of the day you look down at your wrist and smile as you will NEVER see another one of these out there on another wrist!
I am proud to offer this for sale. Now don't be fooled by a limited edition run of "Only 10,000 Pieces" and instead treat yourself to this watch which you will very likely never see again online and most definitely will never see on another wrist! Now that's "Limited"!
Points of Mention
This watch has no service history though is working as it should and running nicely. The dial is very clean and the overall case condition is very good, showing typical signs of wear you'd expect for a vintage watch, however the gold plating is holding strong! The watch is paired on a Tissot leather strap with a gold tone buckle, suits the watch beautifully!
This watch will test you as a collector on how much you value brand name, this brand is a true unknown brand that I cannot find anything on (If you can do let me know!), but yet offers everything you could possibly want in a vintage watch. Great design, great size and a very reliable movement, it has a damn ETA in! So if you are a true collector we all know this is a no-brainer.
Dreyfuss & Co. are a brand that have gone relatively unnoticed by myself, but I have to say the overall quality that they provide is incredible and they do take a hit on the grey market. So the price we have this offered at makes this watch an absolute steal! You're getting a realiable Sellita movement, great build quality, nice design and that's not even mentioning the box it comes with! Surely that alone is worth half the price minimum, it's a great wooden 5 piece watch box!
Points of Mention
The watch is in overall very good condition for a used watch, few hairline scratches but nothing major. The clasp that threads into the strap does not close very tight so would recommend being careful with that, the caseback does clip in but you can hear it rattle from time to time, this is mainly due to the design.
I would be buying this for the watch box alone, it's incredible! But in all seriousness the watch is very cool, whilst typically not my kind of thing and maybe a little big for me personally, I really like the design and it's actually very comfortable on wrist!
This is easily one of the most incredible watches I have put on my wrist and I have the absolute pleasure of offering one of you lucky people the chance of owning it! This A. Lange & Söhne comes in a perfect case size of 35mm with the most beautiful and clean white dial, the case is in 18K White Gold with white gold indices and hands to match, the weight and presence of this watch is very clearly one of precious metal! Once you flip the watch over you are presented with the very A. Lange & Söhne caliber 941 which has their iconic finishing on German Silver! I truly cannot think of a better dress watch!
Whilst the watch is 35mm it wears slightly larger thanks to the thicker lugs of the case, also thanks to the large and clean dial! This is by no means a cheap watch, but for how much this watch is offering I can safely say it is worth every penny and more! I truly don't think you would be disappointed if you purchased this watch!
After the releases from Basel 2019 I think it is a good time to put this Tudor up for sale on the website, whilst some are happy with what came from Basel, many are not. I think last year the brands ticked a lot of boxes of what people wanted, this Black Bay GMT was certainly one of them! This watch offers so much for the money, you get a well engineered in house movement with all the bells and whistles you'd come to expect from a Swiss power house like Tudor. You get great heritage design and all in a modern sized case, granted for some it is a little too large but it's proportions were much better on the wrist than the numbers on screen may represent!
If you haven't had the chance to see this watch in the flesh yet I'd highly recommend you do. Plus the price we have this one offered at it is an incredible deal and one I suspect will hold value of the foreseeable future, especially if Tudor continue with the releases like this Basel!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's box and paperwork dating it to August 2018, therefore it still has a fair amount of time left on it's guarantee. The watch comes paired on it's original NATO strap. The watch is in overall good condition, worn a handful of times and in rotation of a collection.
Whilst I do wish this watch was maybe 1mm smaller for my wrist I cannot help but see the value proposition this watch holds! An automatic GMT with great design and brand for this price... Can you really go wrong or get much better? I think this watch puts a lot of competing brands to shame!
The Longines Master Collection offer some of the best value in modern watches, being backed by the giant Swatch Group certainly makes it easier for them to do and access to great movements is endless. This Master Collection 42mm Automatic is a great example of what they can produce for a very reasonable price, you get a nicely sized modern watch, vintage aesthetics with the honey comb dial, blued hands, day/date function, exhibition caseback and on a very well built bracelet.
Whilst being on the larger side at 42mm it has a short lug-to-lug length of 45mm which makes it wear on the wrist perfectly. If you are looking for a modern watch from a very well respected brand without having to break the bank, look no further. This offers it all.
Points of Mention
This is being sold as watch only, will fit up to a 7 inch wrist. The watch is in overall good and used conditions, signs of wear are visible but due to the design of the bracelet it wears them well. Unknown service history with the watch, it winds nicely and sets well, time keeping is good.
I have always been a fan of Longines for their Master Collection and their Heritage Collection, some of the best made watches in the modern world and aren't demanding silly money. This watch is perfect for someone knew to the collecting game as it offers everything they would ever need, it's also great for the seasoned collector looking for a great daily watch.
