Recently I've been getting a fair few of these unknown and obscure brands, I think they're super awesome and offer a great value proposition! Let's take a look at this "MAVIP"... And yes, I have no clue what the brand is or anything about it lol! That's part of the fun of these ;)
This watch has a lovely case shape which wears so well on the wrist and gives a far larger wrist presence than it's numbers suggest, being quite thin too it's lovely! The dial is a glossy metallic colour that has aged and gone a VERY slight pinkish hue in certain lights, it's super faint but wow! Large and bold indices filled with black contrast nicely against the long hands that are filled with white, all complimented with a sub seconds at 6o'clock! I think if you're a watch guy and want something that stands out and gets questions, then get this!
What we have here in a great and affordable Omega which will look great on both him or her! The bracelet flows from the case effortlessly making the wearing experience very comfortable, also the way the links are put together is very ingenious and makes for a great looking bracelet. It being Quartz allows me to offer this watch to you at an even better price, so treat yourself to this great watch today.
What a simple, yet beautiful offering I have here for you from Longines. This watch dates to 1951 and comes in at a surprising 35mm which would have been considered quite large for the time. Due to the shape of the case it wears so well on the wrist and just looks great!
Pinion is a very exciting British brand with their "Ambition in making fine watches is to succeed not in doing more, but doing better" as the found Piers Berry said! Who is also a great guy!
The dial on this watch is what gets me every time, it is on you can continue to look at and find new details each time. At first you think it is just a flat blue dial but then you realise it actually is so much more than that, the way the light plays with the polish of the hands and the numerals. It is a very well built watch that will treat someone very well.
ROLF. Never heard or seen a watch named ROLF... But the moment you look at that dial you don't even care anymore, it could say McDonalds and I'd still wear this! (That's true!) The dial has beautiful concentric circles in the centre, applied gold indices and numeral with incredible matching hands! The movement has a lovely brass tone and finished nicely. I'm yet to find any fault with this beauty! If this had Omega on it, it would easily be a £1000 watch in my eyes!
The time has come to say good bye to one of my personal watches and one I have probably owned and worn the most beyond my Tudor. It'll definitely be sad to see it go but I know for a fact whoever owns this beautiful watch will not be disappointed! It was freshly serviced this year and is running great, I decided not to have it polished so it definitely has signs of wear to the bracelet but due to the polish and brushed styling it wears them well and you really cannot tell unless you photograph in direct light like I did for the photos above!
I've been very lucky to have managed to get so many great micro brands in the store, this is definitely one of the great ones! This watch is no longer available on the Helgray website. When you look at the design you can see why, named after the famous race track here in the UK which I am sure anyone who is into cars and racing at all has heard of it and maybe even visited!
Running a Meca-Quartz movement you get that satisfying sweep of an automatic watch when running the chronograph but at a serious fraction of the cost! Being 41mm it is not as crazy as most Micro Brand chronographs we have seen recently and with this design it works well!
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!
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!
