There is something about a vintage "tank" styled watch, the rectangular case with the simplicity of the dial, cabochon crown and so on... It makes for such a beautiful and elegant watch on the wrist, perfect for the formal occasion or for the gentleman or lady who likes to wear something a little out there on a daily basis! This lovely watch is from a brand that is no longer with us, but this watch is still working great and looks brilliant on the wrist!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork, it is paired on a genuine lizard strap which matches perfectly. There is no service history but the watch is running well.
It is no secret that vintage rectangular watches are a weakness of mine! I will have a vintage tank and a few reverso's eventually in my collection, but even when that day comes I will still have plenty of vintage watches like this in my watch box!
I feel very honoured to be able to offer a Jeager-Le Coultre for sale on the website, this isn't any JLC either! This is a beautiful 18K Yellow Gold JLC from 1963 powered by the Cal. 800/C and the entire watch coming in at 9mm thick and as the caseback states it was also Patent Pending! The watch is paired on a Crocodile by JB Champion and looks incredible again the gold case and crisp white dial, wears perfectly on the wrist and being 34mm it makes for the most perfect dress watch! And it is a watch that those who know, will definitely know!
The long and elegant lugs allow for a great wrist presence and add to the clean aesthetic. If you are looking for the perfect dress watch I would very easily say look no further!
We are excited to bring this beautiful Zenith to the store, it is no secret my love for the brand and their vintage watches. I truly believe they offer some of the best value still on the vintage market! This model features such a beautiful and completely original, untouched dial with its original blued hands. It is on the smaller side coming in at 29mm however due to the case shape it wears very well in my opinion.
We believe this watch dates to the 1940s and I have named it a Trench Watch as it crosses the line between a Trench Watch in design and also a Military Watch, however it doesn't sit exactly on one side. This is great for the seasoned collector and also the newbie collector, it offers a lot for such a small price in the grand scheme of watches!

This watch features a evenly patina'd dial throughout, original blued leaf hands and central seconds hand. The case is made of base metal and is showing some sings of wear, especially on the edges of the case. The stainless steel caseback is showing scratches too, the acrylic crystal is in good condition. The watch has a unknown service history, however it is running and working well.
This is a small watch and I am personally fine wearing small watches, I really enjoy it! However this watch would look amazing for a lady too, if you are not a small watch guy I think you should get this for the special lady in your life, get her into watches! And if your a lady reading this, treat yourself with this beauty!
The first Frédérique Constant for the website and I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised! The build quality is excellent, the detailing on the dial is out of this world and the movement and finish is brilliant. All this for the price is just amazing, especially when you consider what you have to pay to get the same thing from a much larger brand with a more powerful name.
I think the price is justifiable for the dial alone, could photograph it all day long and I have to say, I nearly did! Pick this up if you're looking for a good value watch which will stand out in the room and blow people away!
When I took this Zelos out of the incredible packaging I was amazed by the size and feeling, even though it is Titanium it still has a great wrist presence, once on the wrist it fit perfectly! Could not believe a watch of this size could actually wear so well on my 6 3/4 inch wrist! Whilst we are on the subject of box, it is incredible! You have an amazing solid wooden box which has a nice colour and finish, once you open that you have a well made watch roll with multiple accessories. Not only is it super practical as you can use that watch roll for travelling or storing your watches, but the box is super practical too!
The design of the watch is great and clearly had thought! The crown even has a lumed logo, who else is doing that?! The bezel has a real depth and the massively domed crystal warps the dial nicely in certain angles, aesthetically it's really well done! Then you flip it over and there is a very nice artwork, all looks great! The clasp is certainly worth mentioning too as it has a very clever extension which allows you to make small adjustments, which is perfect for when the weather is fluctuating and therefore your wrist is too.
Pick this watch up! Great price and a hell of a lot of watch for the money.
In 1938 Oris invented a watch that was to be used by Pilots and aid them in their tasks, it would feature a Big Crown which is now synonymous with Oris and also featured a Pointer Date, where the date is indicated by another hand pointing to the date on the outside of the dial. A very simple yet effective way of displaying information on the dial with ease of use via the big crown, Oris created a classic then and it still looks great today.
This reference is one that is not seen often, the pointer date actually goes anti-clockwise which is different to most. It has a lovely bold coin edge bezel, large luminous hands and a offset sub seconds. Not to mention the texture on the dial, the whole design is just so right on this watch. Whilst a little on the smaller side at 33mm, I can safely say you don't realise the size on wrist as the dial and bezel give the illusion of a much larger watch.

This watch is sold as watch only, therefore it comes with no box or paperwork. The bracelet has no spare links and will fit up to a 6 3/4inch wrist. This is a pre-owned and worn watch from the 90s, therefore signs of wear will be seen. No significant marks or damage to the watch.
Oris is another one of those brands that really help kickstart me into watches, the iconic red rotar in their movement which allowed me to view and become fascinated with the inner workings of a mechanical time piece. All these thoughts and emotions come back with any Oris I handle, this one is a lovely one and will make a collector or even some new to watch very happy!
This classic Omega Geneve Reference 166.0173 was made in 1972 and has survived all 47 years without have any alterations to the dial, this is referencing to find in a world where redials are becoming more and more common, sometimes more so on these Omega watches. The integrated bracelet design gives the watch a very modern feel and the flanks of the lugs actually pass further than the lug to lug dimension of 43mm, thus giving the watch a larger and more prominent wrist presence.
If you are looking for a great looking Omega watch that you could easily wear daily and will suit all attire, but at the same time won't destroy the bank, I would say you've found the watch! Get that order in and begin the watch cycle, once you're in... There is no going back!

This is a vintage watch from 1972, therefore signs of wear and age may be seen. The watch is in overall very good condition for it's age however. Service history is unknown.
Who doesn't love a good Omega? Also I think most of you know I'm a sucker for a good integrated bracelet too! When this one came across my desk I just couldn't say no, the condition of the dial was enough to get me excited to offer it!
It's not every day you see on of these gems, the Zodiac Hermetic. Zodiac are a company that have been around for a long time and arguable are most famous for their SeaWolf range which covered many models both vintage and modern. However because most of the focus goes on those references we are left with many different Zodiac watches that go by relatively unnoticed, allowing us to still find them for very fair prices! For example this reference has a very interesting case design, clean attractive dial with an ETA manually wound movement. When you consider that and see the asking price, it's very fair and I suspect people will eventually realise there is a lot more to offer from the brand than just the SeaWolf!

This watch does feature a gold plated case, being vintage it is showing signs of wear. The dial is in good condition with even aging and no signs of damage, the crystal is the original to the watch and therefore is showing some signs of age but overall is very good. The watch has unknown service history, however it is winding, setting and running okay. Comes paired on a genuine Crocodile strap of high quality.
I really like Zodiac and I think they are doing some interesting things with their new watches, however I am primarily a vintage guy! So for me these vintage watches are amazing, as mentioned above I think there is a LOT of room for people's appreciation to grow for these and therefore I think the prices going up will reflect that! I'd say get them whilst they're cheap!
