1977 Seiko Bell Matic 4006-6080
The Bell Matic was introduced for the Japan market in 1966, it was one of the first automatic watch with an alarm and centre rotor. To increase sales, they reduced the original 27 jewels to 17 to allow it to go through US customs without the premium put on the higher jeweled movements, crazy to think that was a tactic! The 17 Jewel movements continued to be used until 1978 when the Bell Matic ceased production. The movement has a 42 hour power reserve. This model has the integrated bracelet for a comfortable fit. The crisp white dial has the day/date feature, baton hands and indexes all nicely finished.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a watch only and therefore comes with no original Seiko box or original Seiko Paperwork. The watch dates to 1977 and therefore is in vintage condition as you would expect, the dial is in excellent condition with a small marking in the centre that is barely visible when on wrist. The watch functions perfectly with the alarm working as it should, there is no known service history with the watch but it is running well.
Another watch that when it caught my eye I had to have it, I always have a soft spot for integrated bracelets for one! But to have that in such a nice design from Seiko in the 1970s, with the alarm function! It makes this already cool looking watch even cooler!

Finally we have our first, definitely not last, Bremont in the store! This is the awesome looking ALT1-WT in white! On this wrist this has some serious presence in both size but also weight, it is definitely wearable even on my smaller wrist, but you sure know you are wearing it! I think Bremont is one of those brands to watch out for, they are constantly providing better watches and this is an incredible one, at it's price when you compare it to the competition Bremont blow them all out of the water in regards to value, but also build quality! If you have not read up on Bremont on a brand but also their build quality, I would highly recommend you get over to their website now and get reading!
The Casio G-Shock... Is there a more instantly recognisable and bad-ass watch out there? Something you could probably drive over with a tank, then shoot with the tank, go over, pick it up, still read the time and beat a zombie to death with? I don't think so... This is the Classic GA-100, does everything you could ever want plus things you may never figure out to use... Or maybe that is just me?

This is a used watch so signs of wear may be visible, the last battery change is unknown. The watch comes with the original G-Shock tin, no paperwork is provided.
It's a G-Shock. 'Nuff said!
The Omega 564 movement is a famous Omega movement used as a Chronometre between 1966 until 1969 and can be found in Steel models much easier than this VERY rare example in SOLID 18ct Yellow Gold! Not only is it rare but this example is also in insane condition, with it's case looking close to never polished and if it has been polished it has been VERY well and lightly, still showing it's nice sharp edges and finishing. The dial is pristine with it's markers and hands looking as they did when this watch came out of factory, the movement has been partially serviced and is running well! The watch also comes with an Extract from the Archives showing it was delivered to Italy for purchase, this watch has certainly been around at this point I take it. But based on condition it has only gone from safe to safe and rarely reached the wrist!
If you are in the market for an Omega with the 564 movement then I would say look no further, whilst granted this is definitely more expensive than a steel example, it is a HELL of a lot more watch than the steel variant! This is one I suspect will sell to a serious Omega collector, someone who knows and appreciates this watch. If you are that person, give me a call sooner rather than later!
"But James... It's only a 31mm case, it is far too small!"... Try this on and you will be blown away, whilst yes it is a smaller watch the wrist presence is still incredible and wears more like a 34mm thanks to that oyster case, which those who have tried any Oyster case on will know they wear larger than their mm size says. This vintage gem is in its original condition with the dial untouched, which is quite rare as people like to "clean" these dials up. I personally believe the watch looks incredible with the slight ageing to the egg-shell dial. The watch also features a roulette date, original alpha hands and a nice case which has not been over polished! Paired on a nice rivet bracelet that looks right at home on this watch, it's a great package for a great price! Perfect for the man comfortable wearing a smaller watch or for a lady too!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork. The bracelet is a NON Rolex Rivet bracelet that will only fit a 6 3/4 inch wrist. The watch is original and shows signs of age. There is no service history with the watch, though it is running well, service would be recommended if worn daily.
Who doesn't love a vintage Rolex, especially the smaller ones as they are so different to the modern Rolex of today that are hot! I think the popularity of these is only going to grow, especially if they are kept in great original condition like this one!
A watch designed by a man who is often referred to as "The last Leonardo of the twentieth century" and it is incredibly affordable, don't mind if I do?! In the 1950s Max Bill began working with Junghans and his first piece was a wall clock, later he went on to design wrist watches for the brand too. There in 2010 it was a no-brainer for Junghans to re-release the Max Bill collection as "The Power of Simplicity"!
Here we have the classic Max Bill featuring a manually wound calibre which feels great to use and goes perfectly with the simplicity of the design, use a simple movement that you physically interact with to give life, it all feels very fitting. Clearly inspired by Bauhaus design, this watch portrays elegance and simplicity in a well-proportioned 34mm case that looks timeless on the wrist!

This watch is sold with its original box and paperwork, the watch was originally purchased in November 2016. The watch comes paired on its original Junghans black leather strap which is in good condition, the watch is overall in good condition. The watch is running great too.
I have always had a deep love and fascination for Junghans, the Max Bill collection offers some of the very best designed watches for some of the very best prices in my opinion. Bauhaus design has always been a fascination for me, having studied Graphic Design at college it was actually a big focus for me, maybe I should get one?!
The case shape of this Sicura is so unique and amazing, plus it makes the watch wear so well on all wrists! This watch has a lovely blue dial with red highlights within the batons and the second hand, it compliments the whole package incredibly well! The value of these beautiful vintage watches are incredible, especially when you stop to think that you probably won't come across many people ever who have heard of the brand never mind own one of their watches!
One misconception about Sicura is that they are Breitling or have this HUGE connection and therefore people are selling them as Breitlings or with that in the title. The truth is there is a connection but these are not Breitling's, nor where they even made under the same roof or in the same factory. During 1979 the CEO of Sicura saved Breitling by purchased the company, he later closed the doors to Sicura and put all his focus on Breitling. It's a great story and deserves being mentioned that's for sure!
This watch is showing signs of wear on the case and crystal, it is a vintage watch afterall and a lot of brands at this time used stainless steel for the caseback and basemetal for the rest of the watch. Please see all the photos of the watch and request more if you require, I pride myself on providing some of the most honest photos and descriptions of the watches I sell in the market! So do not hesitate to ask.
I still remember working in retailing selling these at retail price when the in-house caliber started coming in, the remaining ETA models soon flew off the shelves as collectors jumped to get them. The way these have increased in price over the years has been amazing to watch and I do not suspect it will stop anytime soon, especially for ones in this great condition and coming with absolutely everything! The Black bezel model has been the highest growing in price and the most collectible, the gilt writing and hands really pops against the dial and gives the watch a nice contrast on the wrist.
Obviously no one can tell the future. But I think the ETA Black Bays are not only a great bet as they will never make it again and it was a limited production, they are also incredible versitle and very well built! As I always mention when selling a Tudor, you get everything you love about Rolex with their build quality but at a much more attainable price for most!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set with its box, paperwork & comes with the Tudor NATO strap. The watch comes in great cosmetic condition with few signs of wear, the watch has been worn but well looked after! The watch is running great too, realiable ETA inside.
I will stand by that Tudor offer some of the very best value for money in their price section, Omega come close but I truly believe Tudor go that extra step and offer something incredible. These ETA models will continue to grow in my opinion, maybe not at the rate of some Rolex models but still at an alarming rate for a Tudor!
I feel very honoured to be able to offer a Jeager-Le Coultre for sale on the website, this isn't any JLC either! This is a beautiful 18K Yellow Gold JLC from 1963 powered by the Cal. 800/C and the entire watch coming in at 9mm thick and as the caseback states it was also Patent Pending! The watch is paired on a Crocodile by JB Champion and looks incredible again the gold case and crisp white dial, wears perfectly on the wrist and being 34mm it makes for the most perfect dress watch! And it is a watch that those who know, will definitely know!
The long and elegant lugs allow for a great wrist presence and add to the clean aesthetic. If you are looking for the perfect dress watch I would very easily say look no further!
Now what we have here is a VERY interesting offering from Girard Perregaux and one you probably not see again! This is the Ref. 7100 Sea Hawk with the beautiful white dial and Pepsi Style, with Gold Numerals, Sapphire Bezel! This watch is running the GP Caliber 215 which, from my research, the 7100 only used for the first 500 models made before they switched to the ETA 2892. This is a true dive watch with 500M of Water Resistance and yet is housed in a case that is 10mm thick, the engineering that has gone into this watch is beyond insane! It is also believed that approximately 2700 models were made in the reference 7100 & 7300 and that covers different variations within the references, such as dial colours and bezels etc! So of this white dial we can only imagine how many are actually out there!
But to add to all that above we also have the original box that the watch was sold in, it is a super funky, heavy and unusual case! It even comes with the outer box signed Girard-Perregaux, what more can you ask for? The outerbox and inner case do have signs of wear and some marks of damage, but functional and such a cool touch! The watch is paired on a custom leather strap that matches the watch perfectly, it currently only has 1 hole that will fit a 7 1/4 inch wrist, so once you get this watch you can go and get another hole punched in to fit you perfectly and enjoy this watch on this strap! Don't wait on this one because I don't think you'll see another come up, especially in condition like this!
75 years old yet looks just as incredible, if not more incredible, on the wrist today as it did all those years ago! This is one of those designs that transends time and will continue to do so for another 75 years! This is the exact same model that has become famous due to the RAF connection, however this model isn't a military issued model so cannot bare the RAF name. But model, movement, dimensions, dial is all the same! It is an absolute pleasure both on and off the wrist, the dimensions in my opinion are perfect. With Longines releasing the re-edition of their similar model, I would not be surprised to see Omega do the same in the not so distant future!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork, the watch ispaired on a generic NATO strap. The watch has no service history, however it is working and running well! The dial has evely patina'd and looks brilliant, the case does feature some signs of age but is overall very good!
I do believe Omega will do a re-edition of this in the near future, so I'd recommend nabbing one of these before they do! Because once they do I wouldn't be surprised to see prices increase 2x minimum!
