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. 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.
What a seriously cool watch this MAT is, all black and stealth as the name suggests. Comes with the full box and papers and the notorious ETA 2824 movement, a real sense of sturdiness on the wrist. Even though it is a huge watch it still wears well and on the rubber strap is insanely comfortable! High a slight sign of wear on the bezel at 11 but otherthan that it is in great condition.
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!
I have owned and sold multiple Seiko Turtle's now and this is by far my favourite! I absolutely love that Seiko decided to do something quite different with this one and they really did it well. The black dial and black bezel, the offset of grey on the bezel and the colour of the surround on the lume... Compliment all that with the iconic and striking orange minute hand! Boom you have a seriously awesome watch for photos and, most importantly, on wrist! To anyone who has tried a Turtle on I don't need to mention how they wear, for those of you that haven't they wear perfectly!
What we have here is an incredible Rolex Explorer, reference 114270, from 2004! It comes with an Original Rolex box and guarantee from the Jewellers it was sold from this year, original paperwork isn't included. The 114270 is considered by some as the best modern Explorer Rolex have made, I would agree with those people! It has the perfect case size of 36mm and it also has solid end links with the old Rolex clasp.
If you are looking for a great Rolex which has the iconic design but paired with modern build quality and a great price I can very easily say look no further! All this watch for the asking price we have here is incredible and will serve someone very well for the rest of their life and their next generation!
NOTE OF MENTION - The watch comes with a sapphire crystal that has a small chip at 6 o'clock as photographed! This can be replaced upon request with another sapphire crystal.
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 an incredible value proposition when you truly take a second to look at all the details! What you have here is a manual wound Hamilton running the Cal. 649 which is also known as the ETA 2750, a very reliable 17 jewel movement! It is military field styling with an all matte case and beautifully grained black dial and a matching matte Hamilton signed crown! Retailed by L.L.Bean hence the presence of that at 12 o'clock! All this put into a 33mm case which has a lug-to-lug of 40mm which means it wears very well on all wrists!
Once you have considered all this and look at the price I think you will be as shocked as I was when I priced this watch! Get them whilst they are still affordable.
The Tissot visodate is most known for their modern dress watch, but the Visodate harps back to the 1950s and refereed to a line of watches with a "Visible Date". This model has a beautiful cushion case which is becoming very popular at the movement, it has nicely angled lugs which slope around the wrist perfectly and provide a very comfortable wearing experience.
Points of Mention
This is a vintage watch from the 1970s and therefore does have signs of wear. The dial has developed patina which is very visible around the edge of the dial. The watch is running though has no service history. The strap is aging and we would recommend a replacement.
The case shape of this watch is what got me excited, the dial with it's patina and being all original, it's a very affordable gem.
When I saw this watch I just couldn't help myself, I had to buy it! Yes it is a homage to the AP Royal Oak, but this is so much fun for such little money in the grand scheme of things. The dial has developed a patina which has given it an almost star dust finish which is hard to capture, but when in the right light it really shows itself off! The bracelet is super comfortable and the wrist presence is very nice.
I think if you're dreaming of that Royal Oak but aren't quite there, this watch is the perfect thing for the meantime! It scratches that itch whilst still standing on it's own merits and being enjoyable... Who knows, when you get the Royal Oak you might still pull this out of the watch box for a bit of fun!
Points of Mention
The watch has a lovely black dial which has patina'd and developed an almost stardust effect, quite difficult to capture but feel free to email me and I can do my best to get some natural shots showing this effect. The case does bare scratches and the bracelet has some stretch, this wasn't a safe queen and was worn and loved. The folding clasp is still secure and snaps nicely, it comes with its entire bracelet and will fit a very large wrist. The watch will be fitted with a new battery.
I really like this watch and truly had to buy it when I saw it! Didn't even blink. I will be enjoying this watch from time to time until it can go off to its new home, I'll be quite sad when it does! But a watch like this deserves to be enjoyed.
If you're name is Douglas I have found the perfect watch for you! Another unknown brand with a unique design, what is not to like? This case shape hugs the wrist and sits so well and it wears larger than the numbers might suggest. A beautiful blue dial which has an almost fume effect which has potentially developed over time, large and bold indices with straight and thick hands, all complimented with a useful date complication located at 3 which is working perfectly!
