Such an interesting watch from an interesting British brand that was established 2014 by Matthew Humphries. At the age of 21 Matthew became the Head of Design for Morgan Motor Company, what an incredible achievement and then to move from that to watches! The design of this watch is perfect, a lovely panda dial with an interesting shaped case. Overall design is amazing, build quality is great and value is perfect! Pick one up...

When I first got my hands on this watch it needed a new Crystal and a service so I had no clue just how beautiful that dial was, you can now understand my surprise once the watch returned to me and that dial was visible! The way it has aged over time has allowed the dial to develop small white dots which makes the entire dial look like the night sky, it's truly unique and beautiful! Match that with the interesting case shape, it wears incredibly well on the wrist.
The watch is being sold on a stretch bracelet though I can imagine how great a beautiful blue leather strap would look! Don't hold back on this automatic 25 Jewel day/date watch from a very well respected brand like Oris, also have confidence that it is working well as it was very recently serviced!
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!
This watch offers a HELL of a lot of value for the money! You can get yourself a serious punching name, a dive watch with great design and a comfortable bracelet... All for under £1k! These are the deals I love bringing to you all, super excited to see this go off to a lucky new owner! The white dial and applied indices really contrast nicely, get this watch in sunlight and you'll just be blown away by the way the light bounces around and off the dial! Everytime you look down you'll notice something new.
What a cool and AFFORDABLE watch this one is! Plus the story is pretty cool, so this company "Carrera" is a remote control toy company that focuses on toy cars, "Carrera" is actually Spanish for "Race". It is believed that the company made a small batch of these watches to give to their best employees and/or customers/retailers. The watch is powered by the Valjoux 7734 which is a great movement and can be found in much more expensive watches, the price I am charging is probably close to the price of the movement alone. So basically buy the movement and get a free cool watch! On a serious note though the watch is very well designed and looks great on the wrist, wearing similar to how a Seiko Turtle wears.
So if you're looking for an affordable and attractive chronograph then look no further!
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!
Here I am being able to bring you all another great Oris for another great price! This time we have the Oris Aquis date in black with orange highlights! I am not one for all black watches but I have to say after wearing this one for the whole day it seriously grew on me, to the point where I now want an all black watch in the collection at some point! With this watch you get the tried and true quality that a Oris brings, but also unique design that is unmistakable in the world of the watches. The only notable mark is the scratch on the clasp, otherthan that this watch is in good used condition!
Again Oris bring insane value for money and on the grey market it becomes just silly how much watch you can get for the price! Pick this one up quick.
Glycine is a brand that has been around for a long time, since 1914 (Rough time to start a company) but is most known for their Airman series which debuted in 1953 which was designed for pilots with useful GMT functions. The watch measures in at a case size of 39mm which is a wise choice when you consider the lug design with the extra crown that locks the bezel in place to make sure of no change, which could be as detrimental for a pilot as the moving of the bezel for a diver.
The watch gets even better, with the added security of a locking bezel and a screwdown crown, the watch achieves 200m of water resitancy and can easily combat the water as well as the skies. If you are looking for a GMT but want to avoid the typical design, look no further!
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box, hand tags and cleaning cloth but no paperwork. The watch was purchased in November 2016 and therefore has no service history but is running well. The condition is also very good for a pre-owned watch.
Whilst this is definitely not my usuaul design choice for a watch, when putting the watch on wrist to take some photos I find myself only taking it off after a full day of enjoying it. It wears so well, offers a unique design with the rubber bezel and extra crown and most all has a great design.
Glycine is famous for their Airman range that was introduced in 1953, without that line some would argue the brand wouldn't be around today. But I truly believe this DS range of watches deserves a lot more love and attention than it currently gets. Whether you are a newbie in the collecting community or a hardcore veteran I think you cannot deny the design of this watch, they truly executed it perfectly and provided everything you could want in a complicated chronograph.
If you are in the market for a great watch for the office or for smart occasions but don't have fortunes to spend, then look no further. Add this to your basket and I guarantee you'll find yourself wearing this watch much more than you can imagine.
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's original box and paperwork. Included is a brand new leather strap by Glycine, nice little add-on to the black leather strap currently on the watch. The watch has been worn in rotation of a large collection and therefore is good overall condition.
Oh all the watches I have picked up to put on my wrist for the photoshoot this has been by far the most fun, the watch just begs to be photographed and looks like a million pounds on the wrist! Designed flawless in my opinion with one of the best complicated dials I have seen in a very long time, for the price I truly don't think you can go wrong.
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.
