TAG Heuer 2000 Automatic
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!

The Speedmaster "Reduced" as it is often called is the 39mm and automatic variation of the traditional Speedmaster Professional. The reference we have here, 175.0043, features a very attractive black dial with white sub dials, date placed at 3o'clock with a left sided 3 chronograph layout. The watch also has a stainless steel tachymetric scale bezel and pump pushers, it has all the classics of a beautiful vintage chronograph with the reassurance of something a little more modern, also with the price tag of something reasonable!
I personally owned a Speedmaster Reduced and it was a brilliant watch, I do not double you will see another one appear on my wrist soon and I wouldn't be surprised if it was this reference. I absolute love the dial and the overall look of this on the wrist!

This watch is being sold a used watch from 1994, therefore signs of wear may be seen. Overall however it is in good condition and comes from one owner, it does feature its original box and cosc card, however guarantee card has been lost. The watch was serviced in 2017 and is running well.
Automatic, panda dial, one of the most respected Swiss brands outside of Rolex, great condition and running well... And if I was to say that was under £2000, would you believe me? Crazy how these are still so "affordable" in the grand scheme of things! Don't hang about with this one.
Whilst certainly not everyone's taste I can't help but admire what Steinhart have done, as someone who is not opposed to homage watches they really do provide quality watches at an affordable price! Design wise there isn't an awful lot to talk about, it is a well proportioned GMT with a Pepsi Bezel, it is built very well and using a power house ETA GMT movement. If you are looking for that Pepsi look but don't want to spend the ever increasing amount to get one, if you can get one, from the infamous brand... Then I'd say look no further, treat yourself here and you won't be disappointed!

This watch is sold as watch only, it comes with no box, no papers and no spare links and will currently fit up to a 6 1/2inch wrist. Do bare this in mind before purchasing! General wear for a used watch with hairline scratches to the bracelet, clasp and case. Bezel operates as it should and the crown winds the watch nicely and screws down securely.
I am not shy in my statement that I do not mind homage watches and I have almost added this exact reference to my personal collection on a few occasions! The proportions are very pleasing on the wrist and I am never disappointed with the build quality of Steinhart. Remove yourself from the homage aspect and you cannot help but see a very well build watch, so much watch for the money!
When I saw this watch I just couldn't help myself, I had to buy it! Yes it is a homage to the AP Royal Oak, but this is so much fun for such little money in the grand scheme of things. The dial has developed a patina which has given it an almost star dust finish which is hard to capture, but when in the right light it really shows itself off! The bracelet is super comfortable and the wrist presence is very nice.
I think if you're dreaming of that Royal Oak but aren't quite there, this watch is the perfect thing for the meantime! It scratches that itch whilst still standing on it's own merits and being enjoyable... Who knows, when you get the Royal Oak you might still pull this out of the watch box for a bit of fun!
Points of Mention
The watch has a lovely black dial which has patina'd and developed an almost stardust effect, quite difficult to capture but feel free to email me and I can do my best to get some natural shots showing this effect. The case does bare scratches and the bracelet has some stretch, this wasn't a safe queen and was worn and loved. The folding clasp is still secure and snaps nicely, it comes with its entire bracelet and will fit a very large wrist. The watch will be fitted with a new battery.
I really like this watch and truly had to buy it when I saw it! Didn't even blink. I will be enjoying this watch from time to time until it can go off to its new home, I'll be quite sad when it does! But a watch like this deserves to be enjoyed.
The Tissot Visodate range is commonly known for their dressy look in the modern line, but the Visodate harps all the way back to the 1950s and meant visible date. The Visodate range is available in dressy watches all the way to diver style watches like this. This watch features a lovely blue dial with a blue friction bezel, striking original hands and a pop of colour on the second hand. The watch still has it's original, and now very puffy, lume plots. Original Tissot crown is still on the watch too, this is as original as they come.
Points of Mention
This is a vintage watch from the 1970s and the watch has patina all over, the bezel has aged and faded into a lovely light blue. The dial has also patina'd to a beautiful tone of blue. The watch is currently running and has an unknown service history.
I have a soft spot for vintage diver style watches, especially ones with a pop of colour which this definitely provides. Tissot is a brand that still has a lot of room to grow in the vintage community and still has a lot of models I believe will increase in popularity, whilst they are still great prices I will be adding one to my collection in the near future.
Such an interesting watch from an interesting British brand that was established 2014 by Matthew Humphries. At the age of 21 Matthew became the Head of Design for Morgan Motor Company, what an incredible achievement and then to move from that to watches! The design of this watch is perfect, a lovely panda dial with an interesting shaped case. Overall design is amazing, build quality is great and value is perfect! Pick one up...
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!
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.
Points of Mention
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.
I have never kept it a secret that I am a huge Oris fan! My first ever true Swiss watch was a Oris, though that aside their design and build quality is incredible for the price. I think that just how Tudor is quite a dominant power in it's price range, Oris is the exact same in it's price range. This Oris 65 is based on a vintage watch Oris used to do, quite clearly a Divers watch which I like! The vintage ques and styling is very iconic and unique whilst still staying incredibly true to Dive Watches and the original watch!
I have now sold and handled a fair few examples of the Combat Sub by Glycine and each time they never fail to amaze me in build quality and overall how well they wear on the wrist, they have a slim profile with tapering lugs that just hug the wrist. The watch offers everything you could want in a dive watch, great water resistency, build quality, lots of lume... But majority of people who wear dive watches don't dive with them, so it's a great thing they also nailed the aesthetics of this watch.
Easily a great option for someone looking for a quality diver watch on a budget, even if budget isn't an issue I think this watch brings a lot to the table. Treat yourself and realise why some people go mad for these!
Points of Mention
The overall condition of this watch is very good, few hairline scratches here and there but nothing major at all. The bezel has some difficulty moving, it can be very, very stiff. The watch comes paired on it's original bracelet, all spare links included.
If I was to buy an affordable diver watch I would very easily be tempted to buy one of these over a Seiko Diver, it offers more in build quality in my opinion. Plus I just really like how the watch looks, your traditional diver aesthetics you'd come to expect but with a little bit more, plus the options for these are endless!
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!
1969, the year man landed on the moon and he was wearing none other than the Omega Speedmaster Professional! However the history of the Speedmaster goes back to 1957 and it wasn't until 1962 that it came to the attention of NASA. If you haven't already, I would highly recommend Googling "Omega Speedmaster History" and just delve into the wide array of information out there, it really will make you appreciate this watch so much more and appreciate the fact it is still "Affordable" to get a small taste of that history!
This watch comes paired on a high quality Leather strap and an aftermarket exhibition case back, but don't panic! Both the original case back and original bracelet are provided in the box for you to switch back to if you wish.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set and comes with it's full box and paperwork. This is the classic Speedmaster Professional with a hesitate crystal, it comes with it's original case back and currently on it is an exhibition aftermarket option. The watch also comes with it's original bracelet, currently it is paired on a finely made Colareb leather strap. The watch is sold in used condition, however it is in very good overall condition. The watch is fully working and runs well.
Does it get anymore classic and perfect than a Speedmaster Professional? I think not! Whilst the aftermarket exhibition case back will not be for everyone, the original is in the box to swap back to if desired. Overall this watch in general offers a lot of "Bang for the Buck" and is desired by most collectors. I wouldn't hang about with this one!
