BRAND NEW - Seiko Alpinist
When it comes to modern Seiko and references, there really isn't many that come as close to fame as the Alpinist. That iconic green dial with the dial layout, design ques and 2 crown system... It's an instant icon within watch collecting and now discontinued! This is one of those watches I believe will only grow in appreciation by the masses, it offers so much for the money and even if it doubled in price I think it could still give the other watches in that price point a solid run for their money.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a brand new and unworn example of the Seiko Alpinist with it's box and paperwork. You cannot get much better than this.
This will be the 5th Alpinist I have sold! I cannot get enough of them. I say it everytime, but green really isn't my colour, though this watch seems to sway me everytime!

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?!
I've said it a thousand times and I am certain I will say it many more watches... Hamilton offer INSANE value for money! Whether that be their vintage watches or their modern watches, even at retail I think they are totally justifiable! Thankfully though I can give you all the opportunity to own them for even less than justifiable, I can offer them to you are undeniable prices!!
Here we have the Hamilton Khaki King Automatic which is probably on of their most successful watches! Design is perfect and it wears so well on the wrist, plus when you consider the fact it's automatic, has a day and date, it's a true Swiss watch and the fact it looks amazing... All that for the asking price! What is not to like?! Take it from my wrist before I consider keeping it!
The Rolex 1601 is one of our favourite vintage references from the brand, it is everything we know and love about Rolex but in a more subtle and understated package compared to their sport models. This early reference features a beautifully patina'd eggshell dial with applied gold indices and gold dauphine hands, these contrast perfectly against the dial. The iconic 18k yellow gold bezel against the steel oyster case makes for an incredible wearing experience, plus the case features drilled lug holes which makes changing straps convenient and fun, with a watch like this you will want to be experimenting with many straps.
Points of Mention
The dial does have patina as you can see from the photo. The watch has been professionally polished in the past and still has it's sharp edges without being too soft like we often see with polished oyster cases. The crown screws down nicely and winds smoothly, the watch was serviced in 2018 and is still running well. The watch is paired on a black leather strap with gold tone buckle.
I really love this reference, but this variation of the reference is one of my favourite. You get that classic datejust look whilst being even more subtle, sometimes sport Rolex models can be too loud on the wrist, this sits beautifully on the wrist being 36mm but also that pop of gold is just enough to make it nice and interesting still. If I was to get myself a datejust it would be this variant of the reference for sure.
The Longines Master Collection offer some of the best value in modern watches, being backed by the giant Swatch Group certainly makes it easier for them to do and access to great movements is endless. This Master Collection 42mm Automatic is a great example of what they can produce for a very reasonable price, you get a nicely sized modern watch, vintage aesthetics with the honey comb dial, blued hands, day/date function, exhibition caseback and on a very well built bracelet.
Whilst being on the larger side at 42mm it has a short lug-to-lug length of 45mm which makes it wear on the wrist perfectly. If you are looking for a modern watch from a very well respected brand without having to break the bank, look no further. This offers it all.
Points of Mention
This is being sold as watch only, will fit up to a 7 inch wrist. The watch is in overall good and used conditions, signs of wear are visible but due to the design of the bracelet it wears them well. Unknown service history with the watch, it winds nicely and sets well, time keeping is good.
I have always been a fan of Longines for their Master Collection and their Heritage Collection, some of the best made watches in the modern world and aren't demanding silly money. This watch is perfect for someone knew to the collecting game as it offers everything they would ever need, it's also great for the seasoned collector looking for a great daily watch.
There is something special about a 34mm oyster case on wrist, especially on a bracelet, it has the wrist presence of a larger watch but yet wears incredibly on the smaller wristed without looking silly on the larger wrists. This Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date features a beautiful champagne dial with gold hands and indices, intact lume plots around the outer edge of the dial on the minute track. A very well kept engine-turned bezel on an, also very well maintained, 34mm oyster case. The watch also comes paired on it's original Rolex oyster bracelet and clasp.
This reference offers the Rolex Cal. 3135 which allows for easy quick-set date, making it a very attractive option for the person with a collection that they rotate often, pick it up, change the date and off you go.
Points of Mention
The watch is in great overall condition for age. We have no service history for the watch but all functions work smoothly, winding is smooth and date change is sharp, the watch is also running well. The watch comes with enough links to fit a 7inch wrist on full length of clasp.
It is no secret that I love smaller watches, having a smaller wrist it was just a given. This reference provides the small size on wrist but larger wrist presence with the oyster case, it's perfect. Plus coming on it's bracelet with a clean champagne dial too, modern quick set movement, it really is a great Rolex option for the person either looking for their first Rolex or a collector looking for a fun reference to add.
There isn't anything more I can say that hasn't already been said about the SKX! I am happy to bring you one of the classics, the SKX007J, J meaning it is the Japanese Domestic Market edition rather than the Malaysian. The watch is a full set and comes on the great rubber strap and is in good condition! The SKX has become one of those watches that if anyone ever asks "I have a few hundred pounds to spend on watches, what should I get?", almost always a SKX will be in that reply! It's a great watch for those starting out, those a few watches into their journey or even that guy with it all!
The Rado Captain Cook in 37mm is a great value proposition, not only because it is limited to 1962 but because the watch is built so well, incredibly designed and wears amazingly on the wrist! I think this is easily one of the best watches to come from Rado in a long time. If you want that vintage look and aesthetic but with the reassurance of a new watch, this is the one for you!
Here we have a completely original and untouched Favre-Leuba Harpoon! The reason I add emphasis on "Original" and "Untouched" as one of these watches was sold on a competitors website with a redial and non-original hands for... Are we ready.... $1300! So with that in mind how about I offer you one that has it's original lines on the dial which can only be seen under high magnification and in the right light, it also comes with it's original and insanely domed crystal! The simplicity of this watch is what really makes it charming, the crown is hidden behind the case which only adds to how space like this watch looks on the wrist.
So if you want this watch and want it in original condition and for a very fair price then look no further! We have you covered.
Whilst certainly a watch that won't be to everyone's taste the Luminox brand has a very dedicated and serious following amount the watch community. As stated on their website "Luminox has been the watch of choice for the professionals like Navy SEALs, expert counter-terrorism operatives Scott Cassel, the US Coast Guard, Law enforcement divers and many more for the past 25 years".
This model features Tritium tubes which allows for better and longer legibility when diving, it also doesn't require a charge of light, a very fun feature and when in the dark it increases in glow.
Points of Mention
The watch will be fitted with a fresh battery before being shipped. The watch comes with it's original box, papers, guarantee card and even it's original rubber strap and hand tag. The all black coated case is in good condition with very signs of wear.
Whilst this is a design of watch I would never personally own I did find it was the easiest watch to photograph as did Harry when he was doing the professional store shots. I could imagine using this watch as a runaround watch or a gym watch.
Brand Name. How much does it mean to you? This watch offers everything you could want in a vintage watch... Incredible design, well thought out case dimensions and arguably most importantly, a very reliable movement, in this case it is the ETA 2789-1! I purchased this watch in 2017 and enjoyed my time with it, it was a true test to myself as a collector as I realised that I hold very little to brand name, sure it's nice to look down at your wrist and see that iconic crown. But at the end of the day you look down at your wrist and smile as you will NEVER see another one of these out there on another wrist!
I am proud to offer this for sale. Now don't be fooled by a limited edition run of "Only 10,000 Pieces" and instead treat yourself to this watch which you will very likely never see again online and most definitely will never see on another wrist! Now that's "Limited"!
Points of Mention
This watch has no service history though is working as it should and running nicely. The dial is very clean and the overall case condition is very good, showing typical signs of wear you'd expect for a vintage watch, however the gold plating is holding strong! The watch is paired on a Tissot leather strap with a gold tone buckle, suits the watch beautifully!
This watch will test you as a collector on how much you value brand name, this brand is a true unknown brand that I cannot find anything on (If you can do let me know!), but yet offers everything you could possibly want in a vintage watch. Great design, great size and a very reliable movement, it has a damn ETA in! So if you are a true collector we all know this is a no-brainer.
