1977 Seiko Quartz 4004
When you take a look at this watch and then realise it is from 1977 you just cannot believe it! Sure there are some signs of wear, the gold plating is scratches and there a few marks here and there... But the way this watch has survived in it's condition and the overall design is truly brilliant! The pattern on the dial that consists of beautiful directional lines, the shape of the case and once on wrist it's a great experience!

ROLF. Never heard or seen a watch named ROLF... But the moment you look at that dial you don't even care anymore, it could say McDonalds and I'd still wear this! (That's true!) The dial has beautiful concentric circles in the centre, applied gold indices and numeral with incredible matching hands! The movement has a lovely brass tone and finished nicely. I'm yet to find any fault with this beauty! If this had Omega on it, it would easily be a £1000 watch in my eyes!
I am excited to bring you another Pinion because I believe whether you enjoy independent brands or not (If you don't we need a chat!) this is a watch that I think everyone can appreciate and also see the value in! You are getting a manually wound Unitas 6498 inside this bronze case, yes that's too cool things! Manual wound and bronze, match that with the unique single piece leather Nato which feels amazing on wrist! Not only that it matches and compliments the bronze case perfectly.
Now let's talk about that dial! Wow! It just begs to be photographed and each time comes out better than the last. The depth of the dial and the different levels of detail really catch the eye over and over! Only 100 of this watch was made so the chances of you ever bumping into someone with the same brand is very rare, nevermind the same watch! But you can guarantee if you do you'll probably have an incredible conversation!
In 1938 Oris invented a watch that was to be used by Pilots and aid them in their tasks, it would feature a Big Crown which is now synonymous with Oris and also featured a Pointer Date, where the date is indicated by another hand pointing to the date on the outside of the dial. A very simple yet effective way of displaying information on the dial with ease of use via the big crown, Oris created a classic then and it still looks great today.
This reference is one that is not seen often, the pointer date actually goes anti-clockwise which is different to most. It has a lovely bold coin edge bezel, large luminous hands and a offset sub seconds. Not to mention the texture on the dial, the whole design is just so right on this watch. Whilst a little on the smaller side at 33mm, I can safely say you don't realise the size on wrist as the dial and bezel give the illusion of a much larger watch.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only, therefore it comes with no box or paperwork. The bracelet has no spare links and will fit up to a 6 3/4inch wrist. This is a pre-owned and worn watch from the 90s, therefore signs of wear will be seen. No significant marks or damage to the watch.
Oris is another one of those brands that really help kickstart me into watches, the iconic red rotar in their movement which allowed me to view and become fascinated with the inner workings of a mechanical time piece. All these thoughts and emotions come back with any Oris I handle, this one is a lovely one and will make a collector or even some new to watch very happy!
Where to even begin with such a beautiful watch like this? Let's get the facts out of the way! This is an 18ct Gold Zenith from 1954/55 running a beautiful manual wound movement from Zenith! This watch was serviced in October 2016 and had it's mainspring replaced, therefore as you can expect it is running very well for a 63 year old watch! The dial is also immaculate and untouched, it being preserved in the condition it is in would suggest to me that this was purchased by someone who would only take it out for very special occasions, therefore rarely seen time on the wrist!
If I had to choose just one dress watch I truly think this would be it! Believe me I'm keeping the photos of this one on my phone for the future hunting, I'll want another one for me!
What a simple, yet beautiful offering I have here for you from Longines. This watch dates to 1951 and comes in at a surprising 35mm which would have been considered quite large for the time. Due to the shape of the case it wears so well on the wrist and just looks great!
What a special watch we have here! This Longines Admiral 5 Star features a very impressive Monocoque case, this means the watch case is made from 1 piece and opens through the front. If you pair a white dial with a yellow gold tone case I immediately get excited, no different here! The case shape of this watch is also incredible and hugs the wrist perfectly, the presence is also very special as it wears larger than its dimensions, thus making it perfect for someone wanting a smaller watch but not to look small on their wrist!
Points of Mention
The dial is in very good and clean condition with no markings or signs of aging. The case bears some marks and scuffs, slight fading and discolouration as photographed. Longines signed crown at 3o'clock. The watch comes paired on a worn black leather strap. The crystal is in good condition and the watch is running well.
I think Longines offer some incredible vintage watches and all still at very fair prices. For me this is the perfect watch to have a lot of fun with strap changing, I would really go wild with this watch and get some crazy colours! Red, Blue, Green... The white dial, yellow gold tone case and the case shape make it the perfect watch to do it!
With the current hype of integrated bracelets I couldn't miss the opportunity to bring this awesome and affordable watch to the table! This is a modern Longines with a great design that feels very futuristic, the watch is in great condition and clearly has been barely worn. The thing that amazed me the most was getting a loupe to the dial and seeing the way the indices step towards the outside of the case, it adds insane depth and really emphasises on the futuristic look of the watch.
The best part is the price. For such a small amount in the grand scheme of watches you can get yourself a great looking watch from a very well respected brand! So what are you waiting for? Treat yourself to this awesome watch.
The Seiko Alpinist is a famous watch within the watch collecting community, if anyone even sees part of the dial they could probably name the watch. We have this paired on the Strapcode Jubilee bracelet which fits the watch perfectly and adds a real sense of quality, the original strap is also provided. This model is freshly serviced, a full set and with the high quality bracelet. I think this is as good as it gets for a highly desirable reference from Seiko! Plus the prices of these have gradually been increasing over the past few years and I do not see that being a trend that is slowing down!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's box and paperwork, original leather strap and with the Strapcode Jubilee. The watch was serviced in 2019 and is running well and still has the paperwork for that service.
Green isn't my colour, never been a fan. BUT I can't get enough of this watch, the tone of green and the way it plays in the light is perfect! I have sold 3 Alpinist in the past and have owned many Seiko's with the Strapcode Bracelets... This is amazing on the bracelet and really turns the watch from a cool watch, into an incredible watch! Don't hang about on this one as I suspect it won't stick around long.
Where to begin with this awesome watch! First place for me is the movement, now Pinion have gone above and beyond for this Chronograph, they could have gone and put any old generic chronograph movement that is readily available on the market in their 1969, but they didn't! They went and sourced New Old Stock Valjoux 7734 movements to put in this epic watch, they also smoked out the glass which just adds a cool effect when looking at the movement!
Next has to be that dial, again Pinion really hit it out of the park again! You have this deep and rich black dial with highlights of blue, that subtle but quickly noticeable detail really bring this watch to life on and off the wrist. Limited to only 100 and this being a very early number 9! Get it quick.
