Ginault Ocean Rover
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!

A snow white dial, gold dauphine hands, sub seconds, date at 3o'clock, bright gold case in a refined size... I mean, c'mon! And from a highly regarded Swiss brand, all under £1k! The condition of this lovely piece is amazing, the gold plating is looking bright and crisp, the dial clean and vibrant. I think these 50s Breitling's have a lot to offer for such good value, how long that value will stay untapped is anyone's guess, but I do believe these will start to creep up!
I think makes the perfect addition to any collection, granted it probably wouldn't be a watch you'd wear every day, but it's a watch that could tick a lot of boxes for most collectors and easily see its way into being worn regularly!
Points of Mention
The dial condition is very clean and showing no signs of aging. The case is also very clean with a few faint hairline scratches, gold is intact and not fading or discolouring. The steel back has some scratches, the movement is clean and working well. The watch is paired on a brown Hirsh leather strap.
As soon as this one came across my desk and I saw the condition I knew it was a special piece, how many watches survive this amount of years and still look this good? I know most humans can't say the same! Either way, very excited to offer this one for sale and can't wait to send it off to its new home!
The Seiko Alpinist is a famous watch within the watch collecting community, if anyone even sees part of the dial they could probably name the watch. We have this paired on the Strapcode Jubilee bracelet which fits the watch perfectly and adds a real sense of quality, the original strap is also provided. This model is freshly serviced, a full set and with the high quality bracelet. I think this is as good as it gets for a highly desirable reference from Seiko! Plus the prices of these have gradually been increasing over the past few years and I do not see that being a trend that is slowing down!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's box and paperwork, original leather strap and with the Strapcode Jubilee. The watch was serviced in 2019 and is running well and still has the paperwork for that service.
Green isn't my colour, never been a fan. BUT I can't get enough of this watch, the tone of green and the way it plays in the light is perfect! I have sold 3 Alpinist in the past and have owned many Seiko's with the Strapcode Bracelets... This is amazing on the bracelet and really turns the watch from a cool watch, into an incredible watch! Don't hang about on this one as I suspect it won't stick around long.
How damn cool is this lovely Stowa Convertible travel clock / pocket watch! It is powered by a manual wound movement and can be rested on it's extended standard at the back, the whole case is a gold-tone plate in incredible condition! The fact this has survived with it's original box and Stowa tag is incredible too! All protected by a lovely leather case that is also in great condition, I feel as if this watch hasn't seen the light an awful amount of times!
I have sold a few of these HELM Vanuatu and this is my personal one that is now coming to sale, I've truly enjoyed my time with it and always astonished by the build quality when I put it on! If you told me this watch was £1000 I could honestly believe it, I suspect you'll feel the same way once you get one on your wrist! Just check the reviews of it online, it's insane!
Currently HELM have none left in stock and they are expecting more in January/February next year! So here is a great chance to buy one here in the UK for less than retail and without import tax, whilst still in AMAZING condition, see the photos! The watch honestly still looks as good as new!
There isn't anything more I can say that hasn't already been said about the SKX! I am happy to bring you one of the classics, the SKX007J, J meaning it is the Japanese Domestic Market edition rather than the Malaysian. The watch is a full set and comes on the great rubber strap and is in good condition! The SKX has become one of those watches that if anyone ever asks "I have a few hundred pounds to spend on watches, what should I get?", almost always a SKX will be in that reply! It's a great watch for those starting out, those a few watches into their journey or even that guy with it all!
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!
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!
