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!
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?!
It is no secret I have a soft spot for Zenith, I truly believe they are so undervalued in today's market and will be on of the next brands to start increasing in popularity and value as more and more people start buying them and realising just how well they are built! This one is no exception, this watch has a beautiful and clean white dial with gold indices which match the gold plated case perfectly. The watch has been paired on a green strap which actually compliments the gold and white very well and gives it a premium "Harrods" feel which is quite nice too.
If you are looking for a bargain in the vintage world but want that bargain to still get you a great quality watch then look no further than this Zenith! Add it to your basket and fall in love with Zenith.
When you think of Seiko this watch probably doesn't spring to mind? But after seeing it in person and having it on the wrist I have to say I seriously love it! I even love the fact that the logo looks nothing like Seiko have done before and the font used for the branding, the whole thing is very Seiko but very under the radar Seiko at the same time! You get real presence on the wrist despite the case size of 35mm and the watch just screams charm in my opinion!
If you want a vintage Seiko but something different to the usual stuff then this is perfect! Stand out in a crowd at a RedBar event or with your group of watch friends, this is a real conversation starter!
The original COSD wristwatch was made for the Combined Operations Supply Depot (COSD), the original was 35mm whereas this new modern model is 40mm. This handsome timepiece offers a real vintage look and wrist presence but with a modern and reassuring feel! I think Longines of all brands really do very well when it comes to vintage re-issues or re-designs, this is one of their best from the heritage range I have seen in a while.
I have sold many Seiko's since KibbleWatches begun and none have been the Kinetic! They make a great and affordable alternative to automatic watches, especially if you're looking for the unrivalled accuracy of a quartz watch but the feel and enjoyment of an automatic! The design of this one is very unique too, with an intergrated bracelet that follows the flow of the case nicely and comes to a nice taper when on the wrist.
Even though it is a large watch at 43mm it wears so well due to the bracelet design and case shape. A very practical watch that would be great for everyday or as a run around piece to not have to worry too much about! Built like a tank.
