In 1985 TAG purchased majority shares of Heuer and the brand then became TAG Heuer, regardless of your opinion on that business move one thing that cannot be argued is how damn cool this watch is! It's a unique one as the 844/2 was being manufactured during this transitional time of Heuer, so models post 1985 will have TAG Heuer on the dial, clasp and box! Therefore this one is pre 1985 as Heuer is the only thing stated.
The large lume plots on the dial have turned evenly fluffy and a beautiful eggshell colour that matches perfectly with the hands, the overall condition is great for a used vintage watch and there is minimal stretch on the original jubilee bracelet. Now sure, design ques have certainly been borrowed from the Rolex Submariner, but in a 42mm case that has a shape reminiscent of a Seiko Turtle (I use this as reference as I suspect most of you have tried a Turtle on) means it couldn't be further away from a Rolex Submariner. Provided is aslo a Colareb strap with a Heuer buckle, you'll be hard stretched to not find a combination you don't like for this watch! My personal preference is the Jubilee!
So don't hesitate on this one, pick it up and enjoy yourself a beautiful vintage Heuer at an unique time for the brand! Also at a price that is less than a lot of TAG Heuer's modern day offerings, what's not to like?!
I still cannot get over the price I am able to offer this watch at! You are truly getting so much watch for the money, incredible design, clean gold plating, beautiful white glossy dial, amazing blue hands and numerals... What is not too like? Also it comes with the original leather strap and buckle which looks like it has had barely any wear over the years! At retail you probably would have paid more than the price I am offering it at...
If you are looking for a great dressy watch for an affordable price then look no further, this ticks all the boxes and still has a great brand name on the dial! Treat your wrist to a dressy piece! Oh and being 34mm it's the perfect size for a dress watch with this design and case colour!
Brand Name. How much does it mean to you? This watch offers everything you could want in a vintage watch... Incredible design, well thought out case dimensions and arguably most importantly, a very reliable movement, in this case it is the ETA 2789-1! I purchased this watch in 2017 and enjoyed my time with it, it was a true test to myself as a collector as I realised that I hold very little to brand name, sure it's nice to look down at your wrist and see that iconic crown. But at the end of the day you look down at your wrist and smile as you will NEVER see another one of these out there on another wrist!
I am proud to offer this for sale. Now don't be fooled by a limited edition run of "Only 10,000 Pieces" and instead treat yourself to this watch which you will very likely never see again online and most definitely will never see on another wrist! Now that's "Limited"!

This watch has no service history though is working as it should and running nicely. The dial is very clean and the overall case condition is very good, showing typical signs of wear you'd expect for a vintage watch, however the gold plating is holding strong! The watch is paired on a Tissot leather strap with a gold tone buckle, suits the watch beautifully!
This watch will test you as a collector on how much you value brand name, this brand is a true unknown brand that I cannot find anything on (If you can do let me know!), but yet offers everything you could possibly want in a vintage watch. Great design, great size and a very reliable movement, it has a damn ETA in! So if you are a true collector we all know this is a no-brainer.
The Tissot visodate is most known for their modern dress watch, but the Visodate harps back to the 1950s and refereed to a line of watches with a "Visible Date". This model has a beautiful cushion case which is becoming very popular at the movement, it has nicely angled lugs which slope around the wrist perfectly and provide a very comfortable wearing experience.

This is a vintage watch from the 1970s and therefore does have signs of wear. The dial has developed patina which is very visible around the edge of the dial. The watch is running though has no service history. The strap is aging and we would recommend a replacement.
The case shape of this watch is what got me excited, the dial with it's patina and being all original, it's a very affordable gem.
Clean, classic and honest! 3 things that are becoming increasingly difficult to get all in one with a vintage Tudor, especially an Oyster! Here we have the reference 7803 with a beautiful egg shell dial, gold numerals and hands with a beautiful contrasting blued second hand! Original "Oyster Patent" crown and the lovely Tudor rose inside the iconic Tudor Crown at 12o'clock! You really are getting the best of both logos with this one.
I am definitely on a streak of weird and wonderful watches and this is no exception! An unusual 70s Wittnauer with it's original box, papers, leather strap and hand tag! The case is what got me with this watch, the unusual (For it's time) rose gold plate case with the most extravagant bezel I have ever seen, it is almost like a bark finish which plays with the light so well when on wrist. Whilst talking about on wrist it wears so well considering it is 33mm, whilst small it has a large wrist presence due to that bezel and the rich and warm rose gold tone which follows to the dial which is developing a nice and even patina.
If you are looking for a dressy watch that will stand out in the swarm of clean and classic dress watches then look no further, this piece will definitely turn heads and spark conversations!
Whilst certainly a watch that won't be to everyone's taste the Luminox brand has a very dedicated and serious following amount the watch community. As stated on their website "Luminox has been the watch of choice for the professionals like Navy SEALs, expert counter-terrorism operatives Scott Cassel, the US Coast Guard, Law enforcement divers and many more for the past 25 years".
This model features Tritium tubes which allows for better and longer legibility when diving, it also doesn't require a charge of light, a very fun feature and when in the dark it increases in glow.

The watch will be fitted with a fresh battery before being shipped. The watch comes with it's original box, papers, guarantee card and even it's original rubber strap and hand tag. The all black coated case is in good condition with very signs of wear.
Whilst this is a design of watch I would never personally own I did find it was the easiest watch to photograph as did Harry when he was doing the professional store shots. I could imagine using this watch as a runaround watch or a gym watch.
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!
Recently I've been getting a fair few of these unknown and obscure brands, I think they're super awesome and offer a great value proposition! Let's take a look at this "MAVIP"... And yes, I have no clue what the brand is or anything about it lol! That's part of the fun of these ;)
This watch has a lovely case shape which wears so well on the wrist and gives a far larger wrist presence than it's numbers suggest, being quite thin too it's lovely! The dial is a glossy metallic colour that has aged and gone a VERY slight pinkish hue in certain lights, it's super faint but wow! Large and bold indices filled with black contrast nicely against the long hands that are filled with white, all complimented with a sub seconds at 6o'clock! I think if you're a watch guy and want something that stands out and gets questions, then get this!
We are excited to offer this awesome CWC G10 with an unusual Green Dial, their is genuine history with the green dial as they were made in the 1990s gulf war era and was an option to the standard black dials. This model was sold publicly in November 2017 and comes with it's full box and paperwork, original NATO strap is provided however the Bark & Jack NATO it is currently on works so well I don't know why CWC haven't set up a joint venture yet!
If you are a fan of CWC then I would say this is perfect for you! I have seen MANY CWC's and hadn't seen this one before, you'll definitely stand out in a room of military watches. These are still available at retail, however this is virtually unworn and comes with a extra NATO of incredible quality!
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box, paperwork and NATO, currently it is paired on a Green Bark & Jack NATO which suits the watch so much better than the original NATO. The watch is virtually unworn with no signs of wear.
As said above, this is the CWC for the person with all the military watches or the person wanting one most won't have! You will not see many of these around... And that's amazing to me!
This 1974 CWC was assigned to the British Royal Navy, specifically the Fleet Air Arm which is one of five arms of the Royal Navy. This is one of those watches that if watches could speak we would all be in for an incredibly long and interesting night, the stores it could tell would be powerful. On wrist you really get a sense of utilitarianism, coming in at 39mm with a very legible dial, a solid case design and paired on a NATO... You can't help but feel a sense of power with this on the wrist.
CWC has been providing the military with watches for many years and as you can imagine not many survive the day to day life of a military person, therefore for us to have an example of this watch is something quite special. We are honoured to offer this for sale and we have confidence that whomever buys this, they will enjoy it as much as we have.
Points of Mention
This watch was serviced in 2018 and is running well. The case and crystal are in unpolished condition and therefore signs of age and use can be seen. Some of the luminescent material on the dial has begun to fade away and even fall off, none of it is loose in the dial or movement. The running seconds hand in the subsidiary dial at 9o'clock has been replaced with a stainless steel arrow hand.
It is no secret I am a huge fan of CWC and military watches, it is also no secret I am not a fan of NATO straps... BUT, I seriously enjoyed wearing this watch and switching out NATO strap... I think a military watch may change my mind on them! I believe this is a truly great buy, so much history packed into such a small object.
At first I had never heard of Precidrive, after a quick google I found out it's Certina's own invention that makes this quartz watch 8 to 10 times more accurate than the traditional quartz watch, that's quite impressive! Certina have been knocking the design game out of the park as of late in my opinion, this watch with it's pops of lime green is super cool! That green on the dial and the green stitching on the strap make it such a fun watch, even more fun when you see the price!
Points of Mention
This is a pre-owned and used watch, therefore signs of wear will be seen. Some hairline scratches to the polished bezel but nothing major. The watch is running as it should be, last battery change is unknown. It is also a full set and comes with everything it did when originally sold at the retailer.
I am not a green guy, its just not my colour. However I've really enjoyed wearing this watch, the pops of green are so bright but not overpowering. I think they got the delicate balance very right and it paid off!
