This is an insanely clean example of a Omega Genève! This watch is gold plated to 20 Microns with a lovely egg shell white dial, matching gold tone hands, indices and applied Omega logo. What a perfect watch for dressy occasions but one that looks equally awesome in t-shirt and jeans!
Whilst the Rolex OP is demanding more and more these lovely, simple, clean Omegas are such a value proposition and a watch that I cant see going anywhere but up!
Perfect watch for the seasoned collector or the newbie to this madness, especially at this price point too! To get yourself a serious watch from a powerful name like Omega for this price, you cannot go wrong!

I was so excited when I picked up this incredible example of a 16030 with the engine turned bezel, the dial is beautiful condition for it's age too! Overall the whole watch is perfect, it is an aftermarket Jubilee but other than that I truly think this watch is the full package for sure! Just look at the condition of the case, it has been polished in the past but very well and the lugs are FAR from soft!
With the increase in prices across the board in retail for Rolex I think the trend we are seeing of the prices only increasing on vintage is only going to continue! If you are in the market for a vintage Rolex then today is definitely the day to pick on up!
Not only is this the first Zodiac in the store it is my first Zodiac in hand ever! It is one of those brands that slips past most of us watch guys and gals, not too sure why but it does. But wow, after having this in hand it definitely should not be passing anyone by! The quality and finish is comparable easily to the likes of Longines, Oris and many others! And price wise it competes so easily with them! Seriously unique design which is true to it's heritage, pick this up whilst it lasts!
Whether you are looking for an affordable watch as a Christmas gift or a treat to yourself, Tissot always has something to offer! This Seastar offers an affordable automatic watch, exhibition caseback, water resistance with a helium escape value, great lume, comfortable rubber strap and the list really could go on! Plus... Who doesn't like blue?! Save yourself the headache of getting someone a present they might not like and get them this watch that they'll love!
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
Another desirable vintage Seiko for the site! This time it is the Lord Matic with the blacked numerals, a serious beauty! It is seen that the Lord Matic was within the top trio at Seiko alongside the GS (Grand Seiko), KS (King Seiko) and finally the LM (Lord Matic) that we have here! When taking a closer look at the detailing and incredible design you can see why!
One iconic feature of the Lord Marvel is the "Open Thru Glass" cases where you have to go from top down to reach the movement, which means you have a seemingless design from the caseback upwards! It's quite amazing to look at and see with a watch of this age. This one does have signs of wear on the case, crystal and some specs on the dial as photographed! But it is a very honest piece and still looks great.
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!
After the releases from Basel 2019 I think it is a good time to put this Tudor up for sale on the website, whilst some are happy with what came from Basel, many are not. I think last year the brands ticked a lot of boxes of what people wanted, this Black Bay GMT was certainly one of them! This watch offers so much for the money, you get a well engineered in house movement with all the bells and whistles you'd come to expect from a Swiss power house like Tudor. You get great heritage design and all in a modern sized case, granted for some it is a little too large but it's proportions were much better on the wrist than the numbers on screen may represent!
If you haven't had the chance to see this watch in the flesh yet I'd highly recommend you do. Plus the price we have this one offered at it is an incredible deal and one I suspect will hold value of the foreseeable future, especially if Tudor continue with the releases like this Basel!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's box and paperwork dating it to August 2018, therefore it still has a fair amount of time left on it's guarantee. The watch comes paired on it's original NATO strap. The watch is in overall good condition, worn a handful of times and in rotation of a collection.
Whilst I do wish this watch was maybe 1mm smaller for my wrist I cannot help but see the value proposition this watch holds! An automatic GMT with great design and brand for this price... Can you really go wrong or get much better? I think this watch puts a lot of competing brands to shame!
Bell & Ross are famous for their square watches, but occasionally they release watches like this. It is near impossible to find this reference today, being the "Desert Type" & Limited to 999 pieces. The watch features a sandy colour that translates over to the strap paired on the watch, this colour combination is surprisingly versatile with nearly everything. Whilst a large watch at 43mm and fairly thick too it wears so well on the wrist, that is due to the way the lugs curve down but also how the caseback sinks into the wrist.
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box and guarantee card. 2 extra Bell & Roll leather straps will be provided too with the one buckle currently on the strap. This is a limited edition model from 2011 to 999 pieces, this is number 126. The watch is in good condition and running okay, however we have no service history.
Whilst Bell & Ross are most known for their square watches, I am personally not a fan of them and how they wear on my small wrist. Which is why I am so glad they stray from the square occasionally to provide something as lovely as this! When I first saw a photo of this watch I wasn't too impressed, when it arrived I couldn't take it off! Whilst large it wore perfectly, looked great and overall incredibly versatile. It's a watch I would consider adding to the personal collection one day!
