It is no secret I have a soft spot for Zenith, I truly believe they are so undervalued in today's market and will be on of the next brands to start increasing in popularity and value as more and more people start buying them and realising just how well they are built! This one is no exception, this watch has a beautiful and clean white dial with gold indices which match the gold plated case perfectly. The watch has been paired on a green strap which actually compliments the gold and white very well and gives it a premium "Harrods" feel which is quite nice too.
If you are looking for a bargain in the vintage world but want that bargain to still get you a great quality watch then look no further than this Zenith! Add it to your basket and fall in love with Zenith.
The case shape of this Sicura is so unique and amazing, plus it makes the watch wear so well on all wrists! This watch has a lovely blue dial with red highlights within the batons and the second hand, it compliments the whole package incredibly well! The value of these beautiful vintage watches are incredible, especially when you stop to think that you probably won't come across many people ever who have heard of the brand never mind own one of their watches!
One misconception about Sicura is that they are Breitling or have this HUGE connection and therefore people are selling them as Breitlings or with that in the title. The truth is there is a connection but these are not Breitling's, nor where they even made under the same roof or in the same factory. During 1979 the CEO of Sicura saved Breitling by purchased the company, he later closed the doors to Sicura and put all his focus on Breitling. It's a great story and deserves being mentioned that's for sure!
This watch is showing signs of wear on the case and crystal, it is a vintage watch afterall and a lot of brands at this time used stainless steel for the caseback and basemetal for the rest of the watch. Please see all the photos of the watch and request more if you require, I pride myself on providing some of the most honest photos and descriptions of the watches I sell in the market! So do not hesitate to ask.
The Rolex 1601 is one of our favourite vintage references from the brand, it is everything we know and love about Rolex but in a more subtle and understated package compared to their sport models. This early reference features a beautifully patina'd eggshell dial with applied gold indices and gold dauphine hands, these contrast perfectly against the dial. The iconic 18k yellow gold bezel against the steel oyster case makes for an incredible wearing experience, plus the case features drilled lug holes which makes changing straps convenient and fun, with a watch like this you will want to be experimenting with many straps.
Points of Mention
The dial does have patina as you can see from the photo. The watch has been professionally polished in the past and still has it's sharp edges without being too soft like we often see with polished oyster cases. The crown screws down nicely and winds smoothly, the watch was serviced in 2018 and is still running well. The watch is paired on a black leather strap with gold tone buckle.
I really love this reference, but this variation of the reference is one of my favourite. You get that classic datejust look whilst being even more subtle, sometimes sport Rolex models can be too loud on the wrist, this sits beautifully on the wrist being 36mm but also that pop of gold is just enough to make it nice and interesting still. If I was to get myself a datejust it would be this variant of the reference for sure.
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.

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.
Whilst this certainly is not your typical Raymond Weil it sure does stand out of the crowd and offers a lot of value for your money. When you consider you are getting an automatic chronograph with carbon fiber in the links, case and dial... All that for the asking price is very good! Especially when you then see it is also a full set. Whilst it is a large watch and the design will not be for everyone I think if you have a large wrist and looking for a good value for money automatic chronograph you should definitely consider this!
Everyone loves a Seiko 5! They are often most people's first ever automatic watch and continue to be a watch owned or purchased multiple times in various colours and styles over the years, myself included! This lovely reference 7S26-0480 features the very well executed honeycomb dial in white, match that with the great proportions of 37mm on the wrist, you have something that is a delight to wear and easily wearable for either men or women!
Whether you are a seasoned veteran in the watch community or a newbie, treat yourself to one of these incredible watches and experience a Seiko 5 at least once. It's a must-do if you are a true collector!

This watch comes with no box or paperwork. It was partial serviced this year and is running nicely. The dial is clean and free of marks, the watch has been worn and therefore does have signs of wear to the bracelet and case. Overall a very fair example for an even fairer price!
My second ever automatic watch was a Seiko 5! I have had a love for them since and that will never go away, whenever the chance comes up to purchase one at a fair price I usually jump at it, this was no exception!
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!
This is the best looking modern Aquaracer in my opinion! The directional lines that can be found on the white dial and also on the black rubber bezel, the bold black outline of the hands and indices, the raised numerals on the bezel, the pop of orange on the second hand, the date at 9 o'clock... I could really go on! I also think the value is incredible, the watch is powered by the Calibre 5 which is a classic automatic movement that can be viewed through the caseback, All of that and a full set, what's not to like?!
