I have handled and Sold a few Glycine and this has my favourite dial yet! Love the white/eggshell colour contrasting against the black of the hands and indices! Even the date being blacked out is a really cool touch. Now sure it is a big watch but it's comfortable on the wrist, some watches of these dimensions just feel terrible on the wrist, I can safely say this isn't one of those!
LIP was founded in 1867 and has certainly been through a lot, though before those tough times in the 70/80s they made some very innovative and funky watches, this was certainly one of them! LIP has been reborn and is producing some very great re-issues, they even have one of this watch in Automatic, but this being the OG Electronic, worlds 2nd electronic watch, it is a special watch!
Let's not forget that this also has a super compressor case with inner bezel, plus it's original cross-hatched crowns! It doesn't get much better than this, it is also paired on a very fitting vintage bracelet that suits the watch very well!
Points of Mention
The watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or papers. The luminous material on the dial and hands is aged evenly and missing a small amount on the hour hand. The crowns operate the watch, though are a little tight. The movement can be a little temperamental after changing the time and stop, with a small shake it continues fine, strongly recommend a service!
Granted! This watch is definitely showing some age and would have seen some better days... It's a true watch, honest and incredible. When I get a vintage watch like this in I get very excited! These are the kind of things that get my gears going. Don't hang about on this one!
Here we have a classic 34mm oyster case Tudor from 1969 with a jet black dial! Beautiful full Tudor rose can be found at 12o'clock with the words "Tudor / Oyster" underneath, Rolex crown and caseback with an engraving that states 1968. We have it paired on a thick suede strap with a Rolex Clasp. When you look at the ever increasing prices of the Rolex counterpart you will see that these are incredible value propositions and I think will continue to rise in price!
The famous Seiko Shogun, today I have the SBDC029 which is the classic design with a full titanium case and bracelet! Called the Shogun due to looking like it has full armour and sharp lines, just like a Shogun! This is a full set and comes with the unused rubber strap still in the box. The watch has sharp and aggressive angles, deep black dial and bezel with an incredible grip on the bezel to allow for easy use! Save yourself a lot of money by picking this watch up from us, it is in great condition and you will not be disappointing!
This incredible TAG Heuer 2000 is the clear predecessor to the TAG Heuer Aquaracer, now one of their best-selling lines alongside the F1. The watch features a very attractive textured dial, large luminous sword hands and central seconds. Applied numerals and indices as well as an applied logo, date at 3o'clock... This watch on paper features everything you'd expect and more of a high quality Swiss watch, best part is the price is so competitive it really does make this watch one hell of a buy!
I know a few well respected figures in the watch industry and community who actually own one of these watches, it was one of their first watches and still gets wrist time today even though they have progressed far beyond the watch... It's a true testament to how incredible this watch is on wrist.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork, the watch is pre-owned and therefore will have signs of wear. It has come from 1 owner and was purchased new by that owner, there is no recorded service history that comes with the watch. The bracelet is full length and is in good condition, minimal stretch.
If you can put the "Watch Snobbery" aside I really do believe this watch offers so much value for money. The dial is incredible and the feel on the wrist is insanely comfortable, I don't doubt this watch will make the wrist of a happy new owner and they will love it!
If you say vintage and IWC I will immediately get excited! For the price I think they offer some of the very best designs on the market, easily! This has the Caliber 8531 which was used in the Ingenieur 666, so no slack of a movement that's for sure! All this is a housed in a 14K Gold case, there are no hallmarkings however due to the market it was sold in originally. The completely original and untouched dial is developing some age and in my opinion adds so much charm and character!
The heft of this case is incredible and the thick lugs and case are in great condition, the original fish crown is intact. Nice clean stainless steel back and date at 3o'clock. The watch comes on a new black leather strap and will have in the package the original IWC buckle! I seriously believe in the value proposition of a beautiful gold watch like this, get it whilst they're still relatively affordable for a gold IWC!
This very well designed Certina has it's core rooted in their history. In 1960 Certina equipped some of their watches for the first time with the DS Concept, that watch accompanied the climbers of the first successful decent of Dhaulagiri in the Himalayas. That is actually the mountain you see on the caseback of this watch, another nice touch! One the dial you have a two-tone white and rose gold dial, bold rose gold sword hands with contrast against the two tones of the dial perfectly making for easily legible reading.
This is all being powered by the infamous Powermatic 80 which is an automatic movement boasting an impressive 80 hour power reserve! When you consider how incredible this full package is and then you see the price, it really is a no-brainer!
Points of Mention
This watch was purchased in May 2017 and was part of a large collection in which it was rotated regularly, the watch does bare some minor signs of wear but nothing major at all. Overall I would say good condition. The watch comes with it's full box, paper and receipt, even the handtags are included.
This watch celebrates part of Certina's history and they celebrated it in good taste, they didn't plaster the front with images or words referring to the feat... They put a very nicely decorated photo of the mountain on the caseback, well played Certina!
Can we just take a minute and stop to appreciate the fact that this insanely beautiful watch has a movement that high beat, hand winds, is automatic AND hacks... This was made in 1972! A modern Steel Nautilus will set you back an INSANE amount of money and doesn't even hack... Oh and all this is prices for LESS than the price of a modern Quartz Grand Seiko... Talk about a value proposition! That's a mic drop right there, look at the photos and let them speak for themselves!
I am excited to offer you a modern Zodiac! I have been saying for a while that they offer such insane value for the money and here I have a NEW Jetomatic, beautifully inspired by Pilots watches with a modern look. The watch was purchased at retail and sized to the customers wrist and then not worn, so you are getting a new watch with no signs of wear and only 1 month old!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a full set and was purchased in August 2019, the guarantee card was not signed at the retailer in the US but proof of purchase can be provided upon request. The watch is in new condition and only sized at the retailer, it has been in the box and has no signs of wear.
Zodiac has come far with their modern offering and this reference shows their ability to make very well made and great looking watches at an affordable price! The design of this watch is truly brilliant, explorer style dial with a pilot theme, very legible and looks brilliant!
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!
BWC is a old watch company founded in 1924 and still makes watches today, BWC stands for Buttes Watch Company as the founder (Arthur Charlet) was born in Buttes, Switzerland. The company is most known for their chronographs from the 70s featuring Lemania and Landeron movements and often bright colours, which was very fitting for the time.
This model, also from the 70s, features a dial that has definitely stood the test of time. A beautiful silver tone with black subdial, dark hands and indices with a white second hand to contrast against the colours perfectly. I truly think this is a timeless design, very similar to the Heuer Carrera but in a lovely 35mm case which wears perfectly on the wrist.
Points of Mention
This watch is titled (NOS?) as it is as close to New Old Stock you can get, it has been worn but very few times and has very few signs of wear on the polished case. The watch runs well though service history is unknown. I sold this exact watch last year to a collector who has now brought it back to me to sell for him to make room in his collection, he truly enjoyed his time with the watch and kept it in great condition.
I genuinely love the design of this watch and I think it's perfect for the person looking for a nice vintage watch that is in good condition but also could potentially pass as a modern design. If my budget was endless this would be staying with me and coming out on the odd occasion.
