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...
I remember when I first saw the Tudor Black Bay in person, I always loved the Blue and the Black was classic, but the Red really captured me! It felt different, it looked different on wrist and it just felt like a greater value proposition as how often do you see Red used on watches?! Now certainly it isn't for everyone, but for those that do like it I think you are getting into something very special, rarely seen and something I suspect will continue to go up at an alarming rate in value!
As always, I have to say it, I do not have a glass ball and I cannot read the future! But based on the current trends, I think this will be one of the watches we look back on in many years and wonder how we missed it! The Black Bay range offers incredible value for money and these ETA models have grown in popularity and it won't be slowing down anytime soon that is for sure!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set with its box, paperwork & comes with the Tudor NATO too. The watch is in great condition, whilst worn it has been well looked after. The watch was purchased August 2013 and was fully serviced by Rolex in August 2017, proof of this comes with the watch. The watch is running great and the ETA is reliable.
If I was to put my money where my mouth is and purchase an ETA Tudor Black Bay to store away in the safe for 20 years, it would be this red model! I genuinly think it is so different and offers so much in terms of value! But that is my opinion, it is down to you to decide what you like ;)
35mm Vintage Chronograph from Lemania quite a bit under £1000? Can you really get much better than that? The eggshell dial on this watch is perfect and has aged nicely, beautiful concentric circles on the chronograph subdials, gold hands and indicies that play so well with the light. Nice sharp and long lugs providing a nice lug to lug length on the wrist and giving great presence... Most importantly all powered by a lovely manual wound and sharp actuating Chronograph Movement! Don't wait around on this one either, I think these are only going to go up as collectors appreciation for them continue to rise!
Here we have a very attractive Seiko Alpinist, but not any Seiko Alpinist... It is the new SPB089 limited to 1959 pieces featuring a stunning blue dial, finished in a similar way to the green, with a mesmerising texture which plays beautifully in different light. If you have the chance to see one in person I highly recommend it. But this one is gone as quick as it came in! So be sure to send me an email if you want one to get your name on my list incase I get another one in.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a brand new and unworn example. Complete with everything it was original sold with. Limited edition of 1959.
The Alpinist has been a classic for a long time from Seiko, this blue however takes it to another level! Whilst the green is very attractive and will still be the go-to for most people, this blue really adds another dimension. Between the two, I would go for one of these!
The Rolex Explorer II Reference 16550 is an interesting reference as it is known as a "Transitional Reference", meaning it features specs that become the future of the model. This had the 40mm case, sapphire crystal, updated Cal. 3085. It also had a makeover with the dial, which is the most interesting part of this watch with its creamy lume! This reference of the Explorer II was only made from 1985 until 1989, making it a very short production run, so I suspect there aren't an awful lot of them out there, especially in this condition, at this price!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or guarantee, however the watch does come with Rolex Service history from 1998 / 2002 / 2006 with the most recent being November 2018, therefore the watch is still within its 2 year Rolex Service Guarantee. The dial is the original tritium dial from 1986, however the hands have been replaced with Super Luminova service hands in the most recent service. The bracelet is an original Rolex oyster bracelet with spare links. The watch is in great condition.
The Explorer II has always been seen as the "Affordable GMT-Master II", though I think that has changed a lot in the past few years! The option of a white dial makes it incredibly attractive and also a great value proposition for a GMT watch! This model even more so, only 4 year production! Also I am excited to announce with confidence that this is one of the VERY best priced white dial Ref. 16550 on the market right now!
Another one from the personal collection coming to the store and what a beauty this one is! This is a Sicura from the 70s in complete original condition and untouched, running well and looking amazing! On the inner rotating bezel you have 3 pops of colour, white, blue and red and those 3 colours are also on the subseconds dial, this pop of colour offsets the black and silver tone of the dial nicely, also paired with an original bright orange second hand! The black tachymetric scale on the bezel adds a super sporty feel to this chronograph.
All this combined makes for a great 1 minute chronograph that gives the Omega Chronostop and Chron-Oris a real run for their money! Houses in a large 45mm case that is wider than it is lug to lug, makes it wear similar to a turtle! Honestly, get this watch before you regret not adding it to your collection!
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!
