36mm, fluted bezel, gold plated case, deep black markers and hands, day/date feature... All for under £100! Oh and vintage, manually wound and "Made in the USSR", it's a damn cool watch for the money! This watch features a movement by a brand called Raketa, the whole watch was actually made by Raketa for Sekonda, it was then recased by Sekonda with a slightly beefier case and then retailed by Sekonda with their signed dials. Raketa versions of the same watch can be found, the case is the most noticeable difference with the Sekonda being slightly better.
Points of Mention
The watch comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is gold plated and vintage, signs of wear can be seen and some fading to the gold plating can be seen, the crown is worn. The crystal is new and therefore free of marks, as is the strap. The watch comes with no service history, though the watch is currently working.
One of my very first vintage watches was a Sekonda exactly the same as this in Steel and I still own it to this day, the design is reminiscent of the Datejust whilst still being different enough, the size is also great for a watch of it's age, manually wound is also a nice touch... And not to forget "Made in the USSR"!
I love the Tudor Black Bay range, as all of you who have followed me for anytime would know, but I always felt it was 1mm or 2mm too large for me... Though in all black it really creates the illusion of wearing ever so slightly smaller, I can say with confidence I would happily wear this! I love that they took something so iconic and utilitarian and make it all black and stealth! I wore this watch with a full black suit and wow, if James bond was to wear a Tudor I think this would be the one! Pair it with a t-shirt and jeans and you have some serious style...
I would highly recommend this to the person wanting a Black Bay but wanting a slight difference to it, or for the collector who maybe already has one and wants to branch out with the feel of the watch! Eitherway you cannot go wrong with this perfect dive watch that has a difference!
In 1938 Oris invented a watch that was to be used by Pilots and aid them in their tasks, it would feature a Big Crown which is now synonymous with Oris and also featured a Pointer Date, where the date is indicated by another hand pointing to the date on the outside of the dial. A very simple yet effective way of displaying information on the dial with ease of use via the big crown, Oris created a classic then and it still looks great today.
This reference is one that is not seen often, the pointer date actually goes anti-clockwise which is different to most. It has a lovely bold coin edge bezel, large luminous hands and a offset sub seconds. Not to mention the texture on the dial, the whole design is just so right on this watch. Whilst a little on the smaller side at 33mm, I can safely say you don't realise the size on wrist as the dial and bezel give the illusion of a much larger watch.

This watch is sold as watch only, therefore it comes with no box or paperwork. The bracelet has no spare links and will fit up to a 6 3/4inch wrist. This is a pre-owned and worn watch from the 90s, therefore signs of wear will be seen. No significant marks or damage to the watch.
Oris is another one of those brands that really help kickstart me into watches, the iconic red rotar in their movement which allowed me to view and become fascinated with the inner workings of a mechanical time piece. All these thoughts and emotions come back with any Oris I handle, this one is a lovely one and will make a collector or even some new to watch very happy!
The Casio G-Shock... Is there a more instantly recognisable and bad-ass watch out there? Something you could probably drive over with a tank, then shoot with the tank, go over, pick it up, still read the time and beat a zombie to death with? I don't think so... This is the Classic GA-100, does everything you could ever want plus things you may never figure out to use... Or maybe that is just me?
Points of Mention
This is a used watch so signs of wear may be visible, the last battery change is unknown. The watch comes with the original G-Shock tin, no paperwork is provided.
It's a G-Shock. 'Nuff said!
Here we have a beautiful Two-Tone Ladies Rolex Datejust Ref. 69173 dating from 1984, it comes on it's original Jubilee bracelet which will fit a wrist of up to 5 1/2 inch wrist, more links can be provided on request. This model features a champagne dial and would look incredible on any ladies wrist! Whether you are looking to treat yourself to a Rolex or you are looking to get your wife/partner a lovely watch then look no further!
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!
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!
This is the 5th Bulova Moon Watch to pass my hands! Each one has been a delight and not lasted long at all, so if this is on your list don't blink with this one! I still find it amazing that you can get these for such little money and they have REAL history! Design is on point, functionality is great with the Meca-Quartz Chronograph movement, size is large but wears well!
I know collectors who own this and got it to fill the void of a Speedmaster and then I know many collectors who own this along side a Speedmaster! Honestly the argument of this vs the Speedmaster means nothing, get both! :D
Zenith offer some of the best value in vintage watches right now and it is a market that is growing in interest from collectors, therefore I suspect we will see prices creep up over the next few years. I have named this watch the Zenith "Calatrava" as the case dimensions are not only similar to a Patek Philippe Calatrava the overall design is very similar, the watch is a clean dress watch.
I believe the watch to be from the late 1970s based on design, the condition indicates this watch was kept in storage for most of it's life and the gold plating is in great condition as is the white dial.

This watch comes with an original, time period correct, Zenith box. The watch comes paired on a new Crocodile strap with the original gold plated Zenith buckle. There is no service history though the watch is working well. The gold plating is also in incredible condition as is the dial, I suspect this watch was rarely worn.
Easily one of the best gold plated dress watches I have seen in a long time, not only in condition but also in design. It is an absolute treat on the wrist and works so well with any occasion when paired on a lighter strap, put it on a black leather strap and you easily have yourself the ultimate dress watch.
