Christopher Ward C1000 Typhoon FGR4
If I was to say an Automatic 7750 Chronograph movement, a CERAMIC case over a titanium core, great design and quality, still in guarantee and all that for the list price... Would you believe it? I certainly didn't! I had to go and read and re-read about this watch over and over... The fact that you are getting that much watch for this price is unreal and makes this watch a real value proposition! I would say if you are in the market for such a thing do not hesitate with this one, give me a call for any questions!

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.
From the day this watch started making it's way to YouTube review after YouTube review I wanted to get my hands on one and see what all the fuss was about! I am very grateful to be able to now offer one for sale! The watch is great, build quality is beyond what I expected and the design, whilst yes a homage, has been executed very well! I have handled and sold hundreds of watches and handled multiple modern Rolex, granted some aspects are not at the same level but it truly isn't miles off!
If you are looking for a great homage with respectful design ques without ripping off completely then I would certainly say look no further!
The Tissot Visodate range is commonly known for their dressy look in the modern line, but the Visodate harps all the way back to the 1950s and meant visible date. The Visodate range is available in dressy watches all the way to diver style watches like this. This watch features a lovely blue dial with a blue friction bezel, striking original hands and a pop of colour on the second hand. The watch still has it's original, and now very puffy, lume plots. Original Tissot crown is still on the watch too, this is as original as they come.
Points of Mention
This is a vintage watch from the 1970s and the watch has patina all over, the bezel has aged and faded into a lovely light blue. The dial has also patina'd to a beautiful tone of blue. The watch is currently running and has an unknown service history.
I have a soft spot for vintage diver style watches, especially ones with a pop of colour which this definitely provides. Tissot is a brand that still has a lot of room to grow in the vintage community and still has a lot of models I believe will increase in popularity, whilst they are still great prices I will be adding one to my collection in the near future.
Sicura, a very interesting brand! Based on what I could find the owner of Sicura actually purchased Breitling in the 70s and had to end Sicura to keep Breitling alive. What a great move on his part and it has left us with some incredible vintage watches from Sicura and all at a truly great price!
The one we have here is an all original Sicura dating from the 70s. The watch is definitely showing signs of age but it all adds to the character and charm, it is running very well too. The dial is a nice black with, what I would call, a rally checkered stripe going through the dial, date at 3 o’clock, nicely lumed hands with a sharp arrow second hand which is also lumed. To top it all off is a friction black bezel which is in good condition and just beginning to fade in a few sections. What a gem!
If you’re wanting a vintage Submariner feel but at a fraction of the cost and with its own unique design points… I would say look no further! This one is perfect.
This is one of those cool watches with an equally cool story! So it goes that Squale found multiple, original, bakelite bezels in a draw and decided to make a limited edition of 60 watches in 3 different colour ways. The end result is incredible, it begs to be photographed and truly feels great on the wrist. It is quite a thick watch but due to the shape of the case and the profile of the case back it actually hugs the wrist fairly well, that is even on a smaller wrist.
The use of a Bakelite bezel here is what really takes the show! Also the vintage colour ways, of the 3 colours they used this is my favourite as it feels the most retro. I think they made a great choice of making it this limited, this really feels like one of those watches you will not see again, and that is limited!

This is a pre-owned watch being sold in very good condition and a complete set with all it's accessories and extra straps, it even comes with one more strap than it did when purchased originally. Limited to 60 pieces it is a rare watch, of those 60 there are 3 different colours split into 20, so technically this colour is 1 of 20 made.
Squale is one of those brands that doesn't always get the love it deserves in my opinion, however even the "haters" of the brand that I have shown this watch their opinion usually changes! I think regardless of your opinion on the brand this is one hell of a watch and offers so much for so little in my opinion! Also, find another one!
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.
Points of Mention
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!
Here we have a beautiful Omega DeVille from the 1970s, it comes on an original Omega beads of rice bracelet that feels incredible on the wrist and goes perfectly with the 35mm beauty! The Cal 565 is a great movement that features a date, but without a quick set position, if you pull the crown out to the very last position it will progress the date by 1. To access the movement if is through the front, crystal and bezel will come off and then through the dial. It was serviced in November 2017 and running very well, this watch will serve you for many many more years than it has already served others!
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!
Everyone loves a Seiko 5! They are often most people's first ever automatic watch and continue to be a watch owned or purchased multiple times in various colours and styles over the years, myself included! This lovely reference 7S26-0480 features the very well executed honeycomb dial in white, match that with the great proportions of 37mm on the wrist, you have something that is a delight to wear and easily wearable for either men or women!
Whether you are a seasoned veteran in the watch community or a newbie, treat yourself to one of these incredible watches and experience a Seiko 5 at least once. It's a must-do if you are a true collector!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with no box or paperwork. It was partial serviced this year and is running nicely. The dial is clean and free of marks, the watch has been worn and therefore does have signs of wear to the bracelet and case. Overall a very fair example for an even fairer price!
My second ever automatic watch was a Seiko 5! I have had a love for them since and that will never go away, whenever the chance comes up to purchase one at a fair price I usually jump at it, this was no exception!
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!
