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. Comes on a very nice and comfortable Hirsh strap.

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!
Dan Henry is a brand that has been taking the collecting community by storm and proven incredibly popular, this 1970 was no exception. The watch is based on the super compressor divers of the 1970s and has done a very good job of paying homage to them whilst adding modern features. One thing immediately noticeable once the watch is in hand is the double domed mineral glass that is sapphire coated to make it more hard.
If you are looking for an affordable super compressor watch with heritage design but modern qualities then look no further, this watch offers an insane amount for the price, not least of which is an automatic movement.
Points of Mention
This watch comes with it's original box & watch sleeve. The watch is used but in very good condition and working well.
This is the first Dan Henry I have had the chance to have for longer than 10 minutes, I have to say I am very impressed. From handling them at various events I was quite impressed, but getting some proper wrist time has proven how nice the watch is. Also don't be scared away by the dimensions, the watch wears very well even on smaller wrists.
There is something special about a 34mm oyster case on wrist, especially on a bracelet, it has the wrist presence of a larger watch but yet wears incredibly on the smaller wristed without looking silly on the larger wrists. This Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date features a beautiful champagne dial with gold hands and indices, intact lume plots around the outer edge of the dial on the minute track. A very well kept engine-turned bezel on an, also very well maintained, 34mm oyster case. The watch also comes paired on it's original Rolex oyster bracelet and clasp.
This reference offers the Rolex Cal. 3135 which allows for easy quick-set date, making it a very attractive option for the person with a collection that they rotate often, pick it up, change the date and off you go.
Points of Mention
The watch is in great overall condition for age. We have no service history for the watch but all functions work smoothly, winding is smooth and date change is sharp, the watch is also running well. The watch comes with enough links to fit a 7inch wrist on full length of clasp.
It is no secret that I love smaller watches, having a smaller wrist it was just a given. This reference provides the small size on wrist but larger wrist presence with the oyster case, it's perfect. Plus coming on it's bracelet with a clean champagne dial too, modern quick set movement, it really is a great Rolex option for the person either looking for their first Rolex or a collector looking for a fun reference to add.
This watch is incredible value for money, the design is so prominent for the era! Running a reliable quartz movement named the Certina 744, which is the ETA 954.112! So an ETA powered Swiss watch, with great design and looks, perfect wrist presence and all for a great price?! This watch, whilst been vintage and worn, is in great condition! I truly believe this obscure, integrated bracelet watches are the next wave! But even if Im wrong this is still an incredible watch to own and appreciate.
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!
A Meteorite dial for the price I am offering? That is seriously insane! This watch is built incredibly well and powered by the ever famous Seiko NH35 automatic movement, design cues have been borrowed from Rolex but the dial and rubber strap give it that unique look when on the wrist! Not only that but you also get a Sapphire Crystal, Ceramic Bezel and 500M of water resistance with a helium escape value... This is a true tool watch with great aesthetic features! For the price you truly cannot go wrong!
For a brand that first saw it's waves of interest from Instagram and to watch that convert to sales and an ever growing and successful brand is great, I think Baltic are a great example of what a small modern brand can do to win over us collectors! I am excited to be offering this first generation HMS-001 with the silver dial, whilst it is a pre-owned watch it is still in very good condition and has been rarely worn!
The watch offers a lot of value for money and the proportions on the wrist are brilliant, not to mention the design! I think they really nailed the look of this watch, the dial with the inner chapter ring giving that contrast and the blued hands, all very attractive and in the 38mm case is very thought out!
Points of Mention
The watch comes in its box with it's original leather strap, overall very good condition with a few very minor hairline scratches to the polished sides of the case. No paperwork with the watch, the watch is running well!
When the offer came up to sell this watch I couldn't say no, I have sold the same reference in the past and the collectors love it! Once in hand and on wrist it is hard for anyone to not understand why, it ticks so many boxes and is very affordable! Don't hang about on this one!
The Omega 564 movement is a famous Omega movement used as a Chronometre between 1966 until 1969 and can be found in Steel models much easier than this VERY rare example in SOLID 18ct Yellow Gold! Not only is it rare but this example is also in insane condition, with it's case looking close to never polished and if it has been polished it has been VERY well and lightly, still showing it's nice sharp edges and finishing. The dial is pristine with it's markers and hands looking as they did when this watch came out of factory, the movement has been partially serviced and is running well! The watch also comes with an Extract from the Archives showing it was delivered to Italy for purchase, this watch has certainly been around at this point I take it. But based on condition it has only gone from safe to safe and rarely reached the wrist!
If you are in the market for an Omega with the 564 movement then I would say look no further, whilst granted this is definitely more expensive than a steel example, it is a HELL of a lot more watch than the steel variant! This is one I suspect will sell to a serious Omega collector, someone who knows and appreciates this watch. If you are that person, give me a call sooner rather than later!
