Finally a Straton, a brand I have seen plenty off on Instagram. In person it definitely makes sense, build quality is great and design is too. Plus the leather case it comes with is incredible quality and would make a nice travel case all on it's own! This is the Straton Curve-Chrono Version E, which is the all black DLC version. Runs a nice meca-quartz movement and wears well even on a small wrist like mine. The watch comes in barely worn condition, literally if I told you this was brand new you'd believe me apart from the ever so slight crease marks in the leather! A great buy at below retail and in as good condition as if you were to buy it at retail!
I was so excited when I picked up this incredible example of a 16030 with the engine turned bezel, the dial is beautiful condition for it's age too! Overall the whole watch is perfect, it is an aftermarket Jubilee but other than that I truly think this watch is the full package for sure! Just look at the condition of the case, it has been polished in the past but very well and the lugs are FAR from soft!
With the increase in prices across the board in retail for Rolex I think the trend we are seeing of the prices only increasing on vintage is only going to continue! If you are in the market for a vintage Rolex then today is definitely the day to pick on up!
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.
Citizen is the brand that started all of this for me! A vintage Citzen Eagle 7 which I still own today, such insane value for money and the Japanese certainly know how to make a beautiful watch but also one that just keeps going! This lovely example is from 1976 and is still running strong, the bold and angular case sits beautifully on the wrist and matches on a gold tone stretch bracelet it actually looks insanely cool on the wrist!
The gold tone dial is in impecible condition, featuring a new crystal the watch is ready to wear and look brilliant!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork. This watch is vintage and therefore shows signs of wear, it is also gold plating so signs of wear to be expected on the plating. There is no service history with the watch but it is running well.
I will always have a soft spot for vintage Citizen watches, they offer so much value for money! Plus this case immediately reminded me of a vintage Lord Matic or Grand Seiko from Seiko in the same era! So damn nice on the wrist, the new owner will not be dissapointed!
This is a beautiful 1950s Omega Bumper Automatic cased in a 14K Gold Filled case with matching gold hands and indices, paired on a lovely brown leather strap with an Omega buckle! Always love taking the caseback off to photograph a bumper automatic, the design is incredible and feeling of that weight bouncing from point to point when swayed is incredible. When I think of Omega I don't think of the huge, heavy and modern pieces I think of these beautiful smaller watches!
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!
Dan Henry is a brand that has been taking the collecting community by storm and proven incredibly popular, this 1970 was no exception. The watch is based on the super compressor divers of the 1970s and has done a very good job of paying homage to them whilst adding modern features. One thing immediately noticeable once the watch is in hand is the double domed mineral glass that is sapphire coated to make it more hard.
If you are looking for an affordable super compressor watch with heritage design but modern qualities then look no further, this watch offers an insane amount for the price, not least of which is an automatic movement.
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's original box, watch sleeve and unstamped guarentee card. The watch is used but in very good condition and working well.
This is the first Dan Henry I have had the chance to have for longer than 10 minutes, I have to say I am very impressed. From handling them at various events I was quite impressed, but getting some proper wrist time has proven how nice the watch is. Also don't be scared away by the dimensions, the watch wears very well even on smaller wrists.
The moment I saw this watch I had to own it, there was no question about it! I had never seen a Citizen "Tank" and then to take it to the next level it has this incredible "Bronze" dial which just shines in the light and explodes! Plus the dimensions are perfect, sits on the wrist well and comes with it's original bracelet, though I think this would killer on a dark brown leather strap! The case is all stainless steel and in great condition, never polished and it almost looks like a "H" by Hermes! Overall beautiful design, manually wound and the greatest dial I have yet seen on a Citizen! Plus... Insanely affordable!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork, though it is sold on it's original Citizen signed strap. This watch is in overall good condition, but being from 1995 and has been worn it does feature some signs of wear. The watch has no known service history but is running well.
I think if you like rectangular watches and are looking for something slightly different, this ticks those boxes! You will not find a modern rectangular watch with a mechanical movement for this price, but here we have something with real charm!
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!
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.

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.
Whilst the Longines Legend Diver is certainly no small watch, it is true to original size of the compressor diver released in the 70s! Despite the large dimensions it still wears well on even my smaller wrist, it sits comfortably and looks truly brilliant! Longines are one of the few modern brands who embrase their history and aren't affraid to re-release some of their older successes! They stick true to design and keep it original, whilst bringing those modern qualities and movement that we would expect today! This watch really suits any strap choice too, you'll have a blast switching and swapping!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with it's box and paperwork, inside is the book is still sealed. The watch comes on an aftermarket leather NATO strap, the original strap is no longer with the watch. The watch was purchased in 2012 at retail and has not yet been serviced, the watch is running okay though it will be due a service.
As for modern Longines this is one of my favourite! Whilst definitely larger than I would usually go for I can't help but enjoy the pressence on the wrist and it being true to the original size ony adds to that!
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!
This watch offers a HELL of a lot of value for the money! You can get yourself a serious punching name, a dive watch with great design and a comfortable bracelet... All for under £1k! These are the deals I love bringing to you all, super excited to see this go off to a lucky new owner! The white dial and applied indices really contrast nicely, get this watch in sunlight and you'll just be blown away by the way the light bounces around and off the dial! Everytime you look down you'll notice something new.
I have never seen an Orient just like this! Seriously amazing and beautiful on wrist, whilst definitely large the bright colours really make it stand out in a crowd of watches! The watch has an inner rotating bezel which has different colours for each section, they are actually to resemble the best colours visible at the stated depths! Gold hands and indices which work so well in the light. This whole watch is amazing and it is paired on a beautiful blue suede strap! Pick it up for an absolute bargain and enjoy.
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!
