Vintage, oversized, 18k rose gold, manually wound chronograph, even patina, what more is there to want? I believe these Brands that are no longer with us offer some of the best value in the market, whether it be for a classic dress watch or something more like this beautiful Chronograph. The 38mm 18k Rose Gold case is a lovely warm rose gold tone instead of the deep copper colour we see today in modern watches, vintage rose gold is always a warmer tone. It contrasts perfectly to the dial which has developed beautiful and even patina over time, the blue telemeter scale and red tachymeter scale on the dial are still in great visible condition.
The watch is powered by a serviced Landeron 149 and has a great actuation when initiating, stopping and resetting the chronograph. The watch is paired on a nice Geckota brown leather strap which compliments the warm tone of the 18k Rose Gold and makes it an absolute treat to wear.
Points of Mention
The watch does have patina on the dial. The case was professional polished and is in good condition, the crown was replaced with a tone correct 18k rose gold crown when serviced, the watch was serviced in 2018 and running great.
When people talk value in the industry it's always a tough one as value means different things to different people. When I see a 18k gold vintage chronograph for under £1000 I see incredible value! If this watch was to have a more recognised brand on the dial it would be anywhere from 3x or 10x depending on the brand, that is value. Plus I like the idea that you will probably NEVER see another on someone's wrist.
Growing up I wasn't surrounding by watches or even aware of them, but the TAG Heuer Professional was one I would see often and it wasn't until recently that I realised that the watch stuck in my memory was this! This is the "Lume Dial" due to the entire dial being lumed and it is truly incredible once the lights are out and the watch is lit! These are growing in popularity and rightfully so, paired on it's original Jubilee it is so comfortable to wear!
This watch is as close to NOS (New Old Stock) as you can get! It certainly is unworn with a few hairline scratches which would have developed from being stored over the many years. This unusually shaped watch comes with it's ORIGINAL leather strap, original buckle and original hand tag! All in fantastic condition and really add to the story of this watch.
As mentioned the case shape of this watch is really unusual and has many different angles and edges, but it goes even further than that. The dial has some incredible detailing with speckles which I assume are to resemble the deepest depth of the ocean as the watch is called "Sea Raider II". They resemble closely to Aventurine or Lapis Lazuli, insanely cool and usual!
Another desirable vintage Seiko for the site! This time it is the Lord Matic with the blacked numerals, a serious beauty! It is seen that the Lord Matic was within the top trio at Seiko alongside the GS (Grand Seiko), KS (King Seiko) and finally the LM (Lord Matic) that we have here! When taking a closer look at the detailing and incredible design you can see why!
One iconic feature of the Lord Marvel is the "Open Thru Glass" cases where you have to go from top down to reach the movement, which means you have a seemingless design from the caseback upwards! It's quite amazing to look at and see with a watch of this age. This one does have signs of wear on the case, crystal and some specs on the dial as photographed! But it is a very honest piece and still looks great.
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!
Clean, classic and honest! 3 things that are becoming increasingly difficult to get all in one with a vintage Tudor, especially an Oyster! Here we have the reference 7803 with a beautiful egg shell dial, gold numerals and hands with a beautiful contrasting blued second hand! Original "Oyster Patent" crown and the lovely Tudor rose inside the iconic Tudor Crown at 12o'clock! You really are getting the best of both logos with this one.
Such an interesting watch from an interesting British brand that was established 2014 by Matthew Humphries. At the age of 21 Matthew became the Head of Design for Morgan Motor Company, what an incredible achievement and then to move from that to watches! The design of this watch is perfect, a lovely panda dial with an interesting shaped case. Overall design is amazing, build quality is great and value is perfect! Pick one up...
