1970s Sicura Chrono-Graphe
Another one from the personal collection coming to the store and what a beauty this one is! This is a Sicura from the 70s in complete original condition and untouched, running well and looking amazing! On the inner rotating bezel you have 3 pops of colour, white, blue and red and those 3 colours are also on the subseconds dial, this pop of colour offsets the black and silver tone of the dial nicely, also paired with an original bright orange second hand! The black tachymetric scale on the bezel adds a super sporty feel to this chronograph.
All this combined makes for a great 1 minute chronograph that gives the Omega Chronostop and Chron-Oris a real run for their money! Houses in a large 45mm case that is wider than it is lug to lug, makes it wear similar to a turtle! Honestly, get this watch before you regret not adding it to your collection!

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.
I am excited to bring you this beautiful 9ct Gold Omega from 1962, powered by the reputable Cal. 552! This lovely watch comes with it's Omega box which, just like the watch, is in great condition! It was serviced in 2017 and running great. The aethetic of this watch is beautifully clean, an eggshell dial, gold indices, black hour and minute hand with a gold tone second hand! Although this is one clean dial you cannot help but get lost in the small details, you will continue to love this watch for many many years!
I am very excited to be offering this beautiful Gallet Alarm which is in incredible condition! A lovely white dial with gold indices and hands that match the case perfectly, a subtle red tip on the alarm hand which helps to differentiate between the other hands. The alarm function works perfectly and the watch is in good running condition overall.
On this rare occasion we actually have information from the gentleman who's father originally received this watch has his 21st Birthday present in 1926. This was his pride and joy and he kept great care of it, as we can see today, he even kept it on the original strap with it's 18k Buckle. The hallmarking on that Buckle also date to 1926 by the London Assay Office, it was sold by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. on 112 Regent Street here in London.
The extract from the archives date the manufacture of this watch to 1924. The crown houses a beautiful Blue Sapphire which is very fitting to the Art-Deco design which only becomes more apparent when you see the sides of the casing with the hand finished pattern that follows to the tip of the lugs.
Points of Mention
The mainsprings was replaced 20 years ago, we have no service history on this watch. It has come back from a full service where a correction to a fault with the time setting mechanism was done. No parts were replaced and it was regulated afterwards. Service conducted by UK Expert Watch Maker Peter Roberts. The strap is definitely showing signs of age, but it's true to the watch and would recommend changing if you was to wear it.
I think this is easily one of the most beautiful watches I have had the pleasure to offer for sale. The Art-Deco design is so strong in the case and dial design, plus the way that case size wears on the wrist is incredible for the time and still looks impressive today. This is a rare opportunity to own a real piece of history that has been preserved so well, I truly hope the new owner will continue that.
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.
These Baltic watches have become insanely popular in the past year or so, I still remember some of their advertising campaigns on Instagram a while back and thinking that the design was beautiful! I can now say having had the watch in hand and on wrist, you can be rest assured that the build quality is too! Lovely slate grey dial which has a unuique finish that catches the light well, when the dial catches the light as do the blue hands! Great size, great wrist presence and you would be representing an up and coming micro brand!
Do NOT hang about with this one! Guarantee it will be gone VERY quickly!
With the rise of integrated bracelets, thanks to the likes of the Patek Nautilus and the AP Royal Oak, watches with those bracelets and design have become very popular. This Seiko is an awesome fully Titanium watch from 2008 with a jet black dial, black bezel to watch and striking white indices and hands that contrasts nicely to the whole package! Due to the size of this watch it wears incredibly well on the wrist and I have no doubt it'll work on all wrist sizes!
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.
