Seiko SRP031K Automatic
Seiko offers so much value for money across multiple models and even price ranges, I have and always will argue that Grand Seiko's are some of the best value for money luxury watches being made right now! But that's for another discussion... This SRP031K is a great example of good value for money, clear aviation design cues with the dial and in a great sized case that matches the aethetic. Inside is a automatic 4R15 that is visible through the case back, overall it ticks a lot of boxes for not a lot of money.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is in worn condition and shows signs of wear all over. The watch has no service history but is running.
A fun automatic Seiko that looks great on the wrist and won't shock the bank! This is exactly what Seiko do incredibly well and why I will always support the brand, they offer an in for most people into watches for an affordable price!

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!
Zenith offer some of the best value in vintage watches right now and it is a market that is growing in interest from collectors, therefore I suspect we will see prices creep up over the next few years. I have named this watch the Zenith "Calatrava" as the case dimensions are not only similar to a Patek Philippe Calatrava the overall design is very similar, the watch is a clean dress watch.
I believe the watch to be from the late 1970s based on design, the condition indicates this watch was kept in storage for most of it's life and the gold plating is in great condition as is the white dial.

This watch comes with an original, time period correct, Zenith box. The watch comes paired on a new Crocodile strap with the original gold plated Zenith buckle. There is no service history though the watch is working well. The gold plating is also in incredible condition as is the dial, I suspect this watch was rarely worn.
Easily one of the best gold plated dress watches I have seen in a long time, not only in condition but also in design. It is an absolute treat on the wrist and works so well with any occasion when paired on a lighter strap, put it on a black leather strap and you easily have yourself the ultimate dress watch.
The Longines Master Collection offer some of the best value in modern watches, being backed by the giant Swatch Group certainly makes it easier for them to do and access to great movements is endless. This Master Collection 42mm Automatic is a great example of what they can produce for a very reasonable price, you get a nicely sized modern watch, vintage aesthetics with the honey comb dial, blued hands, day/date function, exhibition caseback and on a very well built bracelet.
Whilst being on the larger side at 42mm it has a short lug-to-lug length of 45mm which makes it wear on the wrist perfectly. If you are looking for a modern watch from a very well respected brand without having to break the bank, look no further. This offers it all.
Points of Mention
This is being sold as watch only, will fit up to a 7 inch wrist. The watch is in overall good and used conditions, signs of wear are visible but due to the design of the bracelet it wears them well. Unknown service history with the watch, it winds nicely and sets well, time keeping is good.
I have always been a fan of Longines for their Master Collection and their Heritage Collection, some of the best made watches in the modern world and aren't demanding silly money. This watch is perfect for someone knew to the collecting game as it offers everything they would ever need, it's also great for the seasoned collector looking for a great daily watch.
It is watches like this that really get me excited and then when I see the price I am so happy to see such beautiful and unique watches can still be had for a relatively affordable price compared to similar offerings from much larger names, best part is this is by no means a small name! This beautiful 10K Rolled Gold watch has the fanciest lugs I have seen in a while, art deco golden numerals with pointed indices for the odds. The most noticeable aspect of this watch is the display at 12 o'clock, this is the power reserve indicator! I love how unique this entire watch is and the fact it was serviced last year and then consider the price, I think whoever is getting this really will not be disappointed at all!
Well for me there isn't much more to say about this beautiful watch! I have personally owned a Black Bay 36 for over a year now and it is amazing to get one in for sale to allow one of you to enjoy this incredible watch at such a great price! Full set with everything, great overall condition! Just do yourself a favour and get yourself this watch if you like the look of it, for this price I can guarantee you will not be disappointing!
This is one unique and lovely 9ct Gold watch from Longines, with a beautifully clean dial showing only minutes and seconds paired with a manual wound movement. Attached is a fixed 9ct Gold bracelet which flows beautifully, it is of a size for a 7inch wrist plus, unfortunately I don't believe the strap can be changed and I am unsure on adjusting, it would be a soldering job no doubt.
This watch would make a perfect dress watch with it's clean aesthetic, also for the price and getting a 9ct Gold watch... I would truly say you cannot go wrong! Quality piece, quality design and all at a quality price.
Finally a Straton, a brand I have seen plenty off on Instagram. In person it definitely makes sense, build quality is great and design is too. Plus the leather case it comes with is incredible quality and would make a nice travel case all on it's own! This is the Straton Curve-Chrono Version E, which is the all black DLC version. Runs a nice meca-quartz movement and wears well even on a small wrist like mine. The watch comes in barely worn condition, literally if I told you this was brand new you'd believe me apart from the ever so slight crease marks in the leather! A great buy at below retail and in as good condition as if you were to buy it at retail!
I have never kept it a secret that I am a huge Oris fan! My first ever true Swiss watch was a Oris, though that aside their design and build quality is incredible for the price. I think that just how Tudor is quite a dominant power in it's price range, Oris is the exact same in it's price range. This Oris 65 is based on a vintage watch Oris used to do, quite clearly a Divers watch which I like! The vintage ques and styling is very iconic and unique whilst still staying incredibly true to Dive Watches and the original watch!
I've said it a thousand times and I am certain I will say it many more watches... Hamilton offer INSANE value for money! Whether that be their vintage watches or their modern watches, even at retail I think they are totally justifiable! Thankfully though I can give you all the opportunity to own them for even less than justifiable, I can offer them to you are undeniable prices!!
This is the all black PVD Hamilton Khaki Field! It looks so awesome and stealth on the wrist, the blacked out dial just adds a whole level of mystery to the watch. It wears so well on the wrist and I have to keep checking that asking price to see if it's correct! The PVD is in great condition, as is the whole watch! It was purchased new and owned by the same owner since August 2016, so be reassured you are getting well hell of a watch! Click that buy button quick.
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!
What a simple, yet beautiful offering I have here for you from Longines. This watch dates to 1951 and comes in at a surprising 35mm which would have been considered quite large for the time. Due to the shape of the case it wears so well on the wrist and just looks great!
Vintage, oversized, 18k rose gold, manually wound chronograph, even patina, what more is there to want? I believe these Brands that are no longer with us offer some of the best value in the market, whether it be for a classic dress watch or something more like this beautiful Chronograph. The 38mm 18k Rose Gold case is a lovely warm rose gold tone instead of the deep copper colour we see today in modern watches, vintage rose gold is always a warmer tone. It contrasts perfectly to the dial which has developed beautiful and even patina over time, the blue telemeter scale and red tachymeter scale on the dial are still in great visible condition.
The watch is powered by a serviced Landeron 149 and has a great actuation when initiating, stopping and resetting the chronograph. The watch is paired on a nice Geckota brown leather strap which compliments the warm tone of the 18k Rose Gold and makes it an absolute treat to wear.
Points of Mention
The watch does have patina on the dial. The case was professional polished and is in good condition, the crown was replaced with a tone correct 18k rose gold crown when serviced, the watch was serviced in 2018 and running great.
When people talk value in the industry it's always a tough one as value means different things to different people. When I see a 18k gold vintage chronograph for under £1000 I see incredible value! If this watch was to have a more recognised brand on the dial it would be anywhere from 3x or 10x depending on the brand, that is value. Plus I like the idea that you will probably NEVER see another on someone's wrist.
