Bell & Ross BRS-92
Does it get anymore quintessential Bell & Ross than this BRS-92? Featuring a lovely silver dial that compliments the steel case, bold screws on each corner which really strengthen the aviation display influence that pushes Bell & Ross to these great designs. Coming in at 39mm it also wears perfectly on the wrist, demanding it's presence whilst not being over the top. Also paired on a rubber strap currently makes it incredibly versatile, however it does come with 2 other great Bell & Ross straps which really will give the wearer many options!
If you're bored of the traditional watches and want something different in the collection, something fun whilst also being a serious watch, this ticks those boxes. Plus... It's a bargain!

This watch comes as a complete set with it's box and paperwork, it also comes with 2 extra Bell & Ross straps that pair beautifully with this model. The watch is sold as used, however it is in very good condition and was well looked after by it's previous owner. The watch is fully working and runs well!
I will be very honest! I never really liked these square Bell & Ross watches too much, I actually gravitated to their round watches and have sold a few in the past too! Though, giving this some time of the wrist it has COMPLETELY changed my mind. The way the 39mm case wears is perfect and the look of the watch is just brilliant, especially for someone who favours less traditionally styled watches, I do think you will see a Bell & Ross in my collection in the future!

This Sicura has such a striking blue dial and to pair that it is in such a unique shaped case! It is like a cross between a square and cushion shaped with lovely curves and angles on the sides sloping towards the lugs. It is definitely not a small watch but wears so well due to the shape of the case. Paired on a comfortable and good looking stretchy bracelet, suits it well though I can already picture this watch on a lovely blue leather strap!
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.
The Speedmaster "Reduced" as it is often called is the 39mm and automatic variation of the traditional Speedmaster Professional. The reference we have here, 175.0043, features a very attractive black dial with white sub dials, date placed at 3o'clock with a left sided 3 chronograph layout. The watch also has a stainless steel tachymetric scale bezel and pump pushers, it has all the classics of a beautiful vintage chronograph with the reassurance of something a little more modern, also with the price tag of something reasonable!
I personally owned a Speedmaster Reduced and it was a brilliant watch, I do not double you will see another one appear on my wrist soon and I wouldn't be surprised if it was this reference. I absolute love the dial and the overall look of this on the wrist!

This watch is being sold a used watch from 1994, therefore signs of wear may be seen. Overall however it is in good condition and comes from one owner, it does feature its original box and cosc card, however guarantee card has been lost. The watch was serviced in 2017 and is running well.
Automatic, panda dial, one of the most respected Swiss brands outside of Rolex, great condition and running well... And if I was to say that was under £2000, would you believe me? Crazy how these are still so "affordable" in the grand scheme of things! Don't hang about with this one.
I am incredibly honoured to bring you, what is in my opinion, the best looking Speedmaster made to date! Housed in the iconic Speedmaster Professional case is a limited edition of 1975 in honour of the 1975 Apollo mission, The ASTP (Apollo-Soyuz Test Project) which was the final manned mission to the moon. This mission was mainly to see if a manned mission between 2 super powers (US & Russia) could be done together and successfully, Mission ASTP started on the 15th of July and returned on the 24th of July 1975.
This watch not only has the most incredible caseback of the Speedmasters but also features a Meteorite dial! So your "Moonwatch" actually has a bit of space on the dial, that to me is insane and so damn cool! Also the best part is that it is limited to 1975, but the fact it has a Meteorite dial actually means no two dials will be the same!
I would say if you are looking for that special Speedmaster that stands out in the crowd of Speedmasters and limited editions, this is the one to get! It hasn't reached the absolutely bonkers prices of the Snoopy (Yet?!) and really stands out in the crowd! Don't wait on 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...
Here we have something that destroys any negative pre-judgement on Chinese made watches, this watch is destroying competition for a similar price! You're getting well considered design, impressive build quality and an all round great package for way under £200! Perpetual began in 2004 and are just a team of 4 working in China, they produce approximately only 60 watches a month! Talk about limited production... I think what they have achieved here is brilliant and it's nice to see it being done correct in an honest and fair way.

This is a used watch from 2017 so signs of wear will be visible, though the watch is in overall good condition. All functions work as they should. The watch comes paired with it's original box and paperwork, date pusher tool is provided and the watch is on its original strap and buckle.
Before this watch I had never heard of this brand and was quite quick to actually misjudge them as another microbrand profiting on the growing market, but once I got the watch in hand I was amazed with what they have achieved. Truly, it's a great looking watch as well as a very well build watch!
What we have here is an incredible Rolex Explorer, reference 114270, from 2004! It comes with an Original Rolex box and guarantee from the Jewellers it was sold from this year, original paperwork isn't included. The 114270 is considered by some as the best modern Explorer Rolex have made, I would agree with those people! It has the perfect case size of 36mm and it also has solid end links with the old Rolex clasp.
If you are looking for a great Rolex which has the iconic design but paired with modern build quality and a great price I can very easily say look no further! All this watch for the asking price we have here is incredible and will serve someone very well for the rest of their life and their next generation!
NOTE OF MENTION - The watch comes with a sapphire crystal that has a small chip at 6 o'clock as photographed! This can be replaced upon request with another sapphire crystal.
This watch has the iconic Luminor case with that unmistakable, and truly Panerai, crown guard. It has an exhibition case back flaunting it's beautifully finished 3 day manually wound P.1000 calibre, the most eye catching sunburst blue dial I have seen paired on a subtly off grey Titanium case which is finished to an excellent standard. All this in 42mm allowing it to easily wearable for even those of us with a smaller wrist, like myself! Whilst controversial for the pure Panerai fans as it is only 30m water resitant, this lends itself perfectly to a new buyer who wants that iconic look with a little bit more and isn't someone who will go diving with their multiple thousand pound watch anyway... I know I wouldn't!
I suspect this will not stick around for long, neither should it! It will serve it's new owner well and I do not doubt they will enjoy it for a lifetime.

This watch is sold as a full set with it's box, paperwork, protective watch sell, even down to the original cardboard outer box! It also comes with an extra Panerai strap. The watch is being sold in used condition, however it is in very good condition with little signs of wear beyond the creases in the blue strap. The watch is in full working order and working well.
This is one of those Panerai's that has the Paneraisti's mad whenever you mention it! Sure... It's titanium, has an in house manually wound 3 day movement, stunning blue dial and ONLY 30m water resistant... But I don't think this watch was aimed at the hardcore Panerai divers anyway, the overall looks, finishing and style really lend this to a new market for them. And I absolutely love it!
The easy competitor to any Swiss Dive Watch? This MM300 features an amazing Monobloc case which is finished to a Grand Seiko standard, the weight is impressive both on and off the wrist. The dial features a lovely jet black colour that matches the bezel perfectly, whilst quite thick and bulky it's design allows it to hug the wrist well regardless of wrist size. Inside is the ever-reliable 8L35 which features a 50 hour power-reserve and runs flawlessly. The bracelet is finished to an incredibly high standard and the clasp gives the feel of a true dive watch.
This being part of the Prospex line means it is a real tool watch for divers, this reference doesn't have the logo on the dial which will be a big plus to most out there. The crystal features an inner dome and lots of AR coating, this makes for easily legibility at all times and under all lighting.

This is a used watch, however it is in incredible condition. It comes with it's full box & papers, plus all the extras like Rubber Strap and Hand Tag. All spare links are provided.
Whilst I am certainly a small watch guy and on paper I would steer VERY far away from a 44mm case with a 15mm thickness I do have to say I am always amazed by the way Seiko manages to make these huge watches so comfortable and conform to the wrist better than some brands make 40mm watches fit! If you're in the market for a serious diver with all the bells and whistles but want to venture away from the typical Swiss names we all know, I can easily recommend this and I believe you'll be just as amazed as me.
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!
This is easily the most striking vintage Tudor Oyster I have seen to date, not just sold but seen in person! You have a beautiful honey comb dial, chicken leg lugs, gold indices and hands and an awesome engraving on the back dating this piece to 1959! The engraving says "C.CRAPP FROM BOYS OF NU-WAY 1959" which is super cool in my opinion! Love these kind of things!
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?!
