Where to start with this incredible watch? So it is an automatic alarm watch from the brand Swiss Emperor and running an awesome movement which has been serviced this year and is impeccable condition! (See photos) The dial is incredible and is showing even patina, showing signs of age but I personally feel it adds to the charm, but that is for you to decide! Crown at 2 o'clock winds the watch, changes the date and time! Crown at 4 o'clock winds and changes the alarm! When the alarm goes off it makes a satisfying noise and you can definitely feel it vibrate on your wrist! Although not NOS (New old Stock) condition it definitely is in impeccable condition and anyone would have insanely happy with this!
Who doesn't like a good Seiko? We certainly love them here at KibbleWatches and jump at the opportunity to sell them. This one was no different, the design of this one is brilliant and very similar to the infamous Seiko Flightmaster, this reference however is slightly different and has nice pops of red on the dial and bezel, it's this subtle difference that really makes this watch pop on the wrist! Also Seiko have a way of making larger dimensions wear well regardless of wrist size, I have a fairly small wrist and find this watch super comfortable!
Points of Mention
The watch comes with no box or papers and is paired on a non Seiko NATO strap. The watch is fully functional and in good used condition, few hairline scratches to the case but nothing major. Good example for a very affordable price.
I think this watch at this price would actually make a great gift to someone, whether it is someone into watches or not, you really cannot go wrong with a great designed Seiko. They are built well, last ages and take a good beating! So treat yourself or treat someone else!
The reference 16610 debuted in 1988 to replace the Submariner 1680. The changes included a Glossy Black dial as opposed to the flat black of the 1680. It was upgraded to white gold markers around Superluminova. One of the biggest changes was the sapphire crystal, a big change to the acrylic.
This reference 16610 is from 2000 and is a P serial, this means you get all the above mentioned upgrades but you also get solid end links. This makes a world of a difference when on wrist, you get a more comfortable experience. It is also in amazing condition. Coming with it's box and papers, outer box, all booklets and hand tags, the only thing missing is the Steel Anchor.

The watch would have been serviced in 2014 when the previous owner of this watch purchased it from another UK based watch dealer, it is running very well still and is in great cosmetic condition. The bracelet is experiencing some stretch which is normal for a watch of this age. All spare links are provided with the watch. The watch was originally purchased on the 30/10/2000 in Pittsburg US.
This is one of the best condition 16610 I have seen. The Submariner is a watch I always felt both love and hate for, I felt like I saw them a lot and wouldn't enjoy wearing one for that reason. When this came in for sale I wore it for a day and I can safely say my mind has been changed forever! If I was to go for a Pre-Ceramic Submariner (Which would be my choice over the new Ceramic Submariner) I would go with this reference as it's easily a modern watch with near vintage appeal!
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.
What a real oddity, this watch has had me perplexed and it's only made me love it more! The brand is Tisdall which were known for making pocket watches and that is mostly what you can find of them, so to have a wrist watch from them alone is very interesting! But let's get into the design... The dial would have originally been white but has evenly aged to a yellow tone which looks incredible against the burnt black of the numerals! The cathedral hands have also aged nicely, to see them completely original like this is amazing! The movement is a 15 Jewel movement, very similar to most military watches of the time, and is signed "STUDIO" and stated "Patented" on the movement too. Really clean and working well when worn, though when down it can be temperamental so I would recommend a service. I think for the price the watch you are getting here is amazing! So much to be found out about it and I highly doubt you'll find another one like it. Get it quick!
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!
Finally a SARB appears on the website, I am really starting to tick all the boxes for selling every model of Seiko! This is a watch I have wanted to personally own for a while, so please take this away from me before I do something silly and buy another watch when I really shouldn't! There is not much to be said that hasn't been said already on this incredible watch! The value proposition it holds is insane... Incredibly solid automatic movement, perfect proportions for majority of wrist sizes, great design, robust and comfortable bracelet... Literally this watch ticks all the boxes and that is why it is so popular.
Here we have a great example of a Bulova Super Seville Calendar, it comes with it's original box and spare links, it's also in incredible condition! Yes, it is no secret this is a homage to the Rolex Datejust, but let's take a step back from that and take it on it's own merits! The dimensions of this actually make it wear larger than 36mm and incredibly flat to the wrist, the slope of the lugs is perfect and the jubilee offers the comfort you'd come to expect from such a bracelet.
In the 70s & 80s Bulova did a fair few homages to different brands and models, whilst some people certainly don't give them respect based on that fact, I think the build quality cannot be denied on them. Having handled most of the Super Seville range and even the Royal Oak homage, I can say the build quality across the board is incredible. Plus can you really go wrong for the price? I certainly think not!

This watch is in VERY good condition, gold plating all intact with a very sharp lugs and bezel. The watch comes with its full bracelet when the spare 4 links are added, the bracelet is the original jubilee provided on the watch. The watch comes with it's box too. The watch dates to 1987 based on P7 on the case back.
I am a fan of homages and have made that clear for a long time, it doesn't bother me personally. So for me I really enjoy this watch and think it offers a hell of a lot for such a good price, if you aren't one to feel the pressure of those who don't agree with homages, treat yourself to this!
This BOLDR is by no means a small watch that will fit under the cuff of your suit jacket, but if you're looking at purchasing this watch I will go out on a whim and say that is probably not what you are buying it for! This awesome microrband has provided the watch with an ever reliable Seiko NH35, this has given them the confidence of knowing a great movement is inside allowing them to focus on design. Which is done amazingly! This is piece numer 44/500. This watch is in as good as new condition, no marks or signs of wear on even the strap!
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!
The Rolex Submariner was first introduces in 1953 with the first "Date" model, the infamous 1680, being introduced 1966! There you could argue this reference 114060 is the most true to the original Submariner as it features no date! Either way it is the Submariner I think everyone can get behind as the conversation of whether you like the Cyclops or not doesn't even have to cross the mind, the symmetry of this watch is a work of art!
Points of Mention
This is a used Rolex being sold in good condition, has some signs of wear on the polished parts of the case with some scratches to the clasp and bracelet. The watch is being sold as a complete set with the bezel protector still, it is still also in warranty.
The perfect modern Submariner? I think so! Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people who hate the cyclops, it really doesn't bother me! But I just think the watch looks so perfectly proportioned without it, it really makes it feel like the "Tool" it was intended to be.
These little Timex's are awesome and in good amounts, but to be found in very good condition is getting more difficult. Here we have one in great condition, nice clean dial and case and all original. The movement works but is playing up a little from time to time so I would recommend a service, also the crown is a little tight.
