If you missed the opportunity to pick up the previous HELM Vanuatu I had on the store then don't miss it again this time! I have managed to get you the black bezel version this time for the store, as of right now all are out of stock on the HELM website! So get this one for less than retail and with all accessories! Seriously don't miss out again!
I said it last time and I'll say it again, the build quality on this watch is insane! Seriously worth every penny and a whole lot more.

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!
I mean what is there not to love about this watch? A vintage diver style by an awesome British brand, also coming in at 40mm it is no vintage sized diver, it sits comfortably and compares nicely with any modern piece of today in size! Plus the case is not your traditional round case, it is a slightly cushion case which allows for even better wrist ergonomics. It is a delight both on and off the wrist, the kind of watch you do not come about often, plus freshly serviced so running well!
Points of Mention
This is a vintage watch and therefore signs of age will be seen, please see photos! The hands and dial have been professionally relumed, this was done when the watch was serviced this year. The case is base metal and is showing some signs of age, but overall in good condition for it's age!
These vintage style divers are a personal favourite of mine and one I have to battle with often when it comes to buying in for my personal collection, especially when they are as nice as this one and by such a cool brand. I suspect this will not last long!
I am excited to bring you another Pinion because I believe whether you enjoy independent brands or not (If you don't we need a chat!) this is a watch that I think everyone can appreciate and also see the value in! You are getting a manually wound Unitas 6498 inside this bronze case, yes that's too cool things! Manual wound and bronze, match that with the unique single piece leather Nato which feels amazing on wrist! Not only that it matches and compliments the bronze case perfectly.
Now let's talk about that dial! Wow! It just begs to be photographed and each time comes out better than the last. The depth of the dial and the different levels of detail really catch the eye over and over! Only 100 of this watch was made so the chances of you ever bumping into someone with the same brand is very rare, nevermind the same watch! But you can guarantee if you do you'll probably have an incredible conversation!
Dreyfuss & Co. are a brand that have gone relatively unnoticed by myself, but I have to say the overall quality that they provide is incredible and they do take a hit on the grey market. So the price we have this offered at makes this watch an absolute steal! You're getting a realiable Sellita movement, great build quality, nice design and that's not even mentioning the box it comes with! Surely that alone is worth half the price minimum, it's a great wooden 5 piece watch box!
Points of Mention
The watch is in overall very good condition for a used watch, few hairline scratches but nothing major. The clasp that threads into the strap does not close very tight so would recommend being careful with that, the caseback does clip in but you can hear it rattle from time to time, this is mainly due to the design.
I would be buying this for the watch box alone, it's incredible! But in all seriousness the watch is very cool, whilst typically not my kind of thing and maybe a little big for me personally, I really like the design and it's actually very comfortable on wrist!
This beautiful 35mm vintage inspired dress watch harps back to the original Longines Conquest from the 1950s, typically with these heritage re-issues the brands cannot resist changing a fair few things, whether that be the size or subtle upgrades to make it more "modern". I am pleased to say Longines resisted this temptation and created the perfect modern version of the classic watch!
The dimensions are basically identical apart from this watch being slightly thinner thanks to a modern and slimmer automatic movement, they even kept the domed acrylic crystal, probably one of the most attractive parts of a vintage wristwatch. Despite the smaller case dimensions on paper it wears so well, easily can compete with any 37mm watch on wrist presence. This is thanks to the thicker lugs, thicker case and overall design. The perfect Longines then and the perfect Longines now.
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's full box and papers and comes on a new long strap. The crystal is acrylic and has a few marks, but this can be polished up. The watch is running well.
This Longines is easily my favourite modern Longines that they offer, having handled and sold the vintage reference of this watch I can say they truly did the original justice, right down to the size of the case. I am tempted to add one of these to my collection so take this before I do!
CWC Military watches have become increasingly popular and you can see why! An affordable way into true military watches and an easy way into a birth year for those born in 1998! 1 year off my birth year ;) Very clean and legible dial, the case is in amazing condition for it's age, especially considering these were used and usually not lightly! All powered by a very reliable quartz ETA movement, get it whilst it's here!
We are excited to offer this awesome CWC G10 with an unusual Green Dial, their is genuine history with the green dial as they were made in the 1990s gulf war era and was an option to the standard black dials. This model was sold publicly in November 2017 and comes with it's full box and paperwork, original NATO strap is provided however the Bark & Jack NATO it is currently on works so well I don't know why CWC haven't set up a joint venture yet!
If you are a fan of CWC then I would say this is perfect for you! I have seen MANY CWC's and hadn't seen this one before, you'll definitely stand out in a room of military watches. These are still available at retail, however this is virtually unworn and comes with a extra NATO of incredible quality!
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box, paperwork and NATO, currently it is paired on a Green Bark & Jack NATO which suits the watch so much better than the original NATO. The watch is virtually unworn with no signs of wear.
As said above, this is the CWC for the person with all the military watches or the person wanting one most won't have! You will not see many of these around... And that's amazing to me!
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.
There is something special about a 34mm oyster case, whilst on paper you would 34mm may be too small, in reality it wears much larger than the mm size may suggest! This case provides one of the most comfortable wearing experiences in my opinion. The reference 1501 features the inconic engine turned bezel, giving it something more than a traditional smooth bezel and less than a reflective fluted bezel, it is the perfect in-between, the kind of watch you could wear daily and it would go unnoticed!
This wonderful example comes with it's original papers and a spare link, the condition of this is very good as you can see from the photos! I think if you are in the market for a 34mm Rolex then look no further, even if you was only considering a 36mm I would say you have to put one of these on your wrist and realise how perfect it is!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with a bracelet that will fit up to a 7 1/4inch wrist. Original paperwork including the original COSC certificate, rare to find all this together after all this time! The watch comes with no box. No service history provided though the watch winds smoothly, functions work and it runs well!
A 34mm Rolex will certainly be added to the personal collection at some point, smaller watches are definitely my preference and this fits right in with that! The condition of this is very good and what it comes with is just a bonus, don't hang about on this one!
I am very excited to bring you this beautiful Longines All Guard Automatic with a black dial, typically when searching for this watch you will across white dials and the black dials certainly seem more rare! The incredible thing about this watch is when you handle it and put it on you'd be forgiven to mistake it for a modern Longines Heritage Conquest at 35mm, it truly feels the same!
The original black dial has aged nicely and the hands and indices shine nicely in the light, the case has a great and strong feeling on the wrist! The watch is paired on a modern and new Longines strap and buckle. This watch was serviced in September 2017 and came with a 1 year guarantee so still has a month of guarantee left! The collect-ability of these are growing and once handled you can certainly see why, one of these has been added to my must own list!
