1939 Hamilton Dodson
In 1939 the Hamilton Dodson was released to the public and it was at a cost of $37.50 which was FAR from affordable in it's time, that equates close to $650 today! The lug design alone is what first attracted me to this watch, after looking further and seeing the perfectly untouched dial which is in perfect condition, then the applied gold numerals with the most interesting font and the way they shine in the light! This beautiful watch comes freshly serviced and running well! Pick it up whilst it's still here and before the collecting world clocks on to this beautiful piece!

I love the Tudor Black Bay range, as all of you who have followed me for anytime would know, but I always felt it was 1mm or 2mm too large for me... Though in all black it really creates the illusion of wearing ever so slightly smaller, I can say with confidence I would happily wear this! I love that they took something so iconic and utilitarian and make it all black and stealth! I wore this watch with a full black suit and wow, if James bond was to wear a Tudor I think this would be the one! Pair it with a t-shirt and jeans and you have some serious style...
I would highly recommend this to the person wanting a Black Bay but wanting a slight difference to it, or for the collector who maybe already has one and wants to branch out with the feel of the watch! Eitherway you cannot go wrong with this perfect dive watch that has a difference!
Here we have a very attractive Seiko Alpinist, but not any Seiko Alpinist... It is the new SPB089 limited to 1959 pieces featuring a stunning blue dial, finished in a similar way to the green, with a mesmerising texture which plays beautifully in different light. If you have the chance to see one in person I highly recommend it. But this one is gone as quick as it came in! So be sure to send me an email if you want one to get your name on my list incase I get another one in.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a brand new and unworn example. Complete with everything it was original sold with. Limited edition of 1959.
The Alpinist has been a classic for a long time from Seiko, this blue however takes it to another level! Whilst the green is very attractive and will still be the go-to for most people, this blue really adds another dimension. Between the two, I would go for one of these!
There is something about a vintage "tank" styled watch, the rectangular case with the simplicity of the dial, cabochon crown and so on... It makes for such a beautiful and elegant watch on the wrist, perfect for the formal occasion or for the gentleman or lady who likes to wear something a little out there on a daily basis! This lovely watch is from a brand that is no longer with us, but this watch is still working great and looks brilliant on the wrist!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork, it is paired on a genuine lizard strap which matches perfectly. There is no service history but the watch is running well.
It is no secret that vintage rectangular watches are a weakness of mine! I will have a vintage tank and a few reverso's eventually in my collection, but even when that day comes I will still have plenty of vintage watches like this in my watch box!
This incredible Grand Seiko, reference SBGJ005, features the hi-beat GMT 9S86 movement, not only is it a beautiful movement to look at through the back, it is also a highly accurate and very smooth GMT. This watch comes from a time before the transition to removing "Seiko" from the dial, it is a point of discussion that often splits people, I personally prefer the look of "Seiko" on the dial but completely understand their reasoning for changing it.
The dial on this watch is to die for, the texture is incredible and it is very difficult to photograph, however it has been captured in it's true nature in a few of the shots. The finishing of the case and hands are also incredible, I think there are not many brands that can compete with Grand Seiko on their finishing, especially for the same price!
Points of Mention
This watch is being sold a used watch and therefore some signs of wear may be seen, but overall it is in very good condition and comes from 1 owner from new. The watch comes complete with it's box, paperwork, hand tags and everything you would get from buying from retail. Watch is running very well.
I have to say, I think the transition to removing "Seiko" from the dial was a good one for the brand, but I do feel that "Seiko" on the dial really balances on the look of the dial but also adds a lot of stealth to this watch! Most people would see the word "Seiko" and think nothing more, however, the ones who know... Will know!
The Pilot watch that pre-dates pilots watches as we know it! This is the Oris 1917 referring to the original which was released in 1917, design ques have been borrowed and certainly updated with this beautiful watch! The dial features a lovely texture which is almost like a graining, matching that is the bold and fully lumed numerals and beautifully blued hands! Oris even went to the extreme of replicating the movement functionality that was in the original with a small button above the crown, that has to be pressed in to change the time. At first I thought this was going to be very annoying but in reality it really wasn't, how often are you having to change the time anyway?
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.
The Citizen Eagle 7 is where it all began for me, my first ever automatic wristwatch! I still own it to this day and it still runs great to this day... This model features a lovely silver dail with a gold plated case, fluted bezel and paired on its original gold plated jubilee which is super comfortable on the wrist! They are very clearly getting design inspriation from the Rolex Datejust, however there is a charm to the watch and one that allows it to get away with it.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only, therefore it comes with no box or paperwork. This is a used and vintage watch, therefore signs of wear and age will be seen! The gold plated case and bracelet is showing signs of wear. The watch has no service history but is currently working. The crystal was replaced recently.
I think these are still such great watches! Having owned watches over 25 times the value I can still say that I enjoy wearing mine and would never sell my personal one! They are brilliant for the money and offer a lot of value and a great movement for a vintage watch! Some modern watches still use the movement that is in this watch, talk about a work horse!
Pinion is a very exciting British brand with their "Ambition in making fine watches is to succeed not in doing more, but doing better" as the found Piers Berry said! Who is also a great guy!
The dial on this watch is what gets me every time, it is on you can continue to look at and find new details each time. At first you think it is just a flat blue dial but then you realise it actually is so much more than that, the way the light plays with the polish of the hands and the numerals. It is a very well built watch that will treat someone very well.
How about a watch from a brand that started it all for me! Citizen started this whole obsession and still manages to intrigue me with their watches to this day, this is certainly one of them! I know I talk about value a lot, but it is because it's one thing I pride myself on finding for you! This offers a lot of watch for the money.
This is a Citizen Eco Drive with a lot of features, like so many that I can't even explain them all! Please go see online for the details ;) It has one of the nicest white dials I have seen, paired with beautiful blued hands that are sharp and catch the light so well! If you are looking for a watch that you can wear whenever without having to worry but want to still look amazing, this is that watch hands down!
Citizen is a brand I am no stranger to. I have owned and sold many ranging from vintage pieces to brand new watches, I love the brand! They offer great value and serve as an easy every day watch for the rest of your life or a great way into watches, or even a great addition to any collection! This one is no different, incredible build quality and great looks.
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?!
When I saw this watch I just couldn't help myself, I had to buy it! Yes it is a homage to the AP Royal Oak, but this is so much fun for such little money in the grand scheme of things. The dial has developed a patina which has given it an almost star dust finish which is hard to capture, but when in the right light it really shows itself off! The bracelet is super comfortable and the wrist presence is very nice.
I think if you're dreaming of that Royal Oak but aren't quite there, this watch is the perfect thing for the meantime! It scratches that itch whilst still standing on it's own merits and being enjoyable... Who knows, when you get the Royal Oak you might still pull this out of the watch box for a bit of fun!
Points of Mention
The watch has a lovely black dial which has patina'd and developed an almost stardust effect, quite difficult to capture but feel free to email me and I can do my best to get some natural shots showing this effect. The case does bare scratches and the bracelet has some stretch, this wasn't a safe queen and was worn and loved. The folding clasp is still secure and snaps nicely, it comes with its entire bracelet and will fit a very large wrist. The watch will be fitted with a new battery.
I really like this watch and truly had to buy it when I saw it! Didn't even blink. I will be enjoying this watch from time to time until it can go off to its new home, I'll be quite sad when it does! But a watch like this deserves to be enjoyed.
A blue dial Rolex alone is always a time to get excited, but a sharp reference 16030 with its original blue dial is worth shouting about! Even down to the bracelet the watch is sharp, it has to be one of the least stretched Jubilee bracelets I have seen! This watch also comes with its original box and booklets, spare links are provided too.
The datejust is a design that truly has stood the test of time and I think will continue to do so forever. It’s timeless and simple without being too unnoticeable, it has just that perfect balance. Plus… There is a little something about having that iconic crown on your wrist, whether we like to admit it or not, it feels damn good!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original box and booklets, but no paperwork is provided. The watch comes with it's original spare links too. Overall the watch is in excellent condition, without even considering the age! The blue dial is starting to fade slighly and around the lume dots on the dial it is starting to fade more which is common for these blue dials.
If I was going to treat myself to a datejust it would be a blue dial without question, the overall design is incredible but the blue makes it stand out and being that little bit different to the rest of the datejust's out there. Also who doesn't love a 36mm that wears perfectly on the wrist? Comfort and you'll look incredible!
