When you take a step back and consider that this is a 18ct Yellow Gold watch from a well known and regarded Swiss brand, a good quality movement, recently serviced, oversized 37mm case and great dial design... Once all of that is considered and you see the price, this is a great buy! The great thing about this watch is you have something can very easily pass as a modern dress watch due to the larger size and design, but also something that if paired on a brown leather strap could be a great watch for the normal day to day tasks!
This watch is over 61 years old, yet is working well, looks great and I feel very confident in saying that in another 60+ years this watch will still look great and still be desirable! This watch comes from a good home and was worn by the original owner until passed down, it was then professionally serviced and now has now come to my desk to have the privilege of selling!
Points of Mention
The watch was professionally serviced in June 2018. The watch is 18ct yellow gold as hallmarked on the inside of the case, it is also Swiss Cased as opposed to the more common South American cases, gold can be soft and mark easier than stainless steel, whilst the watch is in overall good condition for its age signs of wear and age will be seen.
I don't think it gets much better than this if you want an over-sized (By vintage standards) full gold dress watch from a good brand that won't break the bank! I absolutely adore the dial with the sub seconds, the long and broad leaf hands and the applied gold tone Arabic numerals! This watch packs a lot of punch for the price!
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.
Points of Mention
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!
In 2018 I sold initially the blue dial, then later the black dial, now to finally have the grey dial I have completed the modern set! Each one has it's own quirks and stand out features in design, however I do feel this one knocks it out of the park and provides the perfect colour combination on the Heritage Chrono range. This is one of those watches that you could look at and believe it has been plucked right out of the 70s, the design screams retro! Whereas the moment you pick up the watch you get the instant feeling of modern and robust, everything Tudor is aiming to be.
This is a lovely example that comes with as a complete set with it's full box and papers, only purchased in August 2018 it is still in warranty and will prove to be a great watch for any collector! Save yourself a hell of a lot of money from retail, pick this up!
Points of Mention
This watch comes as a full set with it's original box and paperwork, the watch was purchased in August 2018 and has been worn few times, though some signs of wear can be seen on the clasp. As this is the later batch from Tudor it doesn't come with a complimentary NATO strap, however if you ask nicely I may be so kind as to provide you a nice NATO strap. The watch is still under warranty!
I love the Heritage Chrono and it is the Tudor watch I would buy if I was to buy a modern one from the cataloge right now! Sure... It's a big watch but it wears so well even on the smaller wrists thanks to the case design, plus the dial design is something that'll easily look good in 30 years!
I am excited to bring this incredible Omega Speedmaster #SpeedyTuesday to sale! It comes as a full set with everything it would have when sold initially, in very good condition. It is also a very early 14*/2012! It ticks a lot of boxes for the Speedmaster fan out there, it certainly ticks a lot of boxes for me. This watch is special for a lot of reasons beyond how incredible it looks!
It was released by Omega in partnership with Fratello watches to celebrate the 5th year anniversary of their #SpeedyTuesday which they introduced in 2012, hence being limited to 2012 pieces. The dial is inspired by the Alaska Project III moon watch which only 56 were made, but this is the first reverse Panda Omega have done in Speedmaster Professional. It is also the first watch Omega sold entirely online! That's a lot of firsts...
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with everything it would have been sold new with, even the plastic watch shipment case. The watch is worn but in good condition, hairline scratches to be expected on acrylic crystal. Still under manufacture warranty too, plus it is an early 14*/2012 limited edition piece!
The SpeedyTuesday is not only a super cool watch but one that means a lot to me! You will see on my home page a picture of this watch under the "Sold" picture, that is because I actually sold one of these very early on in the KibbleWatches days when this watch was first released! So it holds a special place for me and I am excited to offer another one, take it quick!
This is a beautiful 1950s Omega Bumper Automatic cased in a 14K Gold Filled case with matching gold hands and indices, paired on a lovely brown leather strap with an Omega buckle! Always love taking the caseback off to photograph a bumper automatic, the design is incredible and feeling of that weight bouncing from point to point when swayed is incredible. When I think of Omega I don't think of the huge, heavy and modern pieces I think of these beautiful smaller watches!
Bell & Ross are famous for their square watches, but occasionally they release watches like this. It is near impossible to find this reference today, being the "Desert Type" & Limited to 999 pieces. The watch features a sandy colour that translates over to the strap paired on the watch, this colour combination is surprisingly versatile with nearly everything. Whilst a large watch at 43mm and fairly thick too it wears so well on the wrist, that is due to the way the lugs curve down but also how the caseback sinks into the wrist.
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box and guarantee card. 2 extra Bell & Roll leather straps will be provided too with the one buckle currently on the strap. This is a limited edition model from 2011 to 999 pieces, this is number 126. The watch is in good condition and running okay, however we have no service history.
Whilst Bell & Ross are most known for their square watches, I am personally not a fan of them and how they wear on my small wrist. Which is why I am so glad they stray from the square occasionally to provide something as lovely as this! When I first saw a photo of this watch I wasn't too impressed, when it arrived I couldn't take it off! Whilst large it wore perfectly, looked great and overall incredibly versatile. It's a watch I would consider adding to the personal collection one day!
The Rolex 1601 is one of our favourite vintage references from the brand, it is everything we know and love about Rolex but in a more subtle and understated package compared to their sport models. This early reference features a beautifully patina'd eggshell dial with applied gold indices and gold dauphine hands, these contrast perfectly against the dial. The iconic 18k yellow gold bezel against the steel oyster case makes for an incredible wearing experience, plus the case features drilled lug holes which makes changing straps convenient and fun, with a watch like this you will want to be experimenting with many straps.
Points of Mention
The dial does have patina as you can see from the photo. The watch has been professionally polished in the past and still has it's sharp edges without being too soft like we often see with polished oyster cases. The crown screws down nicely and winds smoothly, the watch was serviced in 2018 and is still running well. The watch is paired on a black leather strap with gold tone buckle.
I really love this reference, but this variation of the reference is one of my favourite. You get that classic datejust look whilst being even more subtle, sometimes sport Rolex models can be too loud on the wrist, this sits beautifully on the wrist being 36mm but also that pop of gold is just enough to make it nice and interesting still. If I was to get myself a datejust it would be this variant of the reference for sure.
Before this watch I had never heard of Bertucci, however after looking into them I am very impressed. They produce service grade watches and are actually used by some military personnel. This particular reference we have here is solid titanium and US Patented. They began in 2003 and have succeeded in surviving a very tough industry for smaller brands, they must be doing something right! I can tell you that what they are doing right is build quality, this watch is built like a tank!
Points of Mention
This watch is in immaculate condition, only a few very hairline scratches when the watch is angled in certain lighting. This watch is watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork, the case is titanium and the last battery change is unknown.
It's a very cool, well built field watch! Is there many options out there? Sure, but this one is built incredibly and comes from a brand most people wouldn't have heard of, I know I'd rather choose the little guy.
Sicura, a very interesting brand! Based on what I could find the owner of Sicura actually purchased Breitling in the 70s and had to end Sicura to keep Breitling alive. What a great move on his part and it has left us with some incredible vintage watches from Sicura and all at a truly great price!
The one we have here is an all original Sicura dating from the 70s. The watch is definitely showing signs of age but it all adds to the character and charm, it is running very well too. The dial is a nice black with, what I would call, a rally checkered stripe going through the dial, date at 3 o’clock, nicely lumed hands with a sharp arrow second hand which is also lumed. To top it all off is a friction black bezel which is in good condition and just beginning to fade in a few sections. What a gem!
If you’re wanting a vintage Submariner feel but at a fraction of the cost and with its own unique design points… I would say look no further! This one is perfect.
I have sold many Seiko's since KibbleWatches begun and none have been the Kinetic! They make a great and affordable alternative to automatic watches, especially if you're looking for the unrivalled accuracy of a quartz watch but the feel and enjoyment of an automatic! The design of this one is very unique too, with an intergrated bracelet that follows the flow of the case nicely and comes to a nice taper when on the wrist.
Even though it is a large watch at 43mm it wears so well due to the bracelet design and case shape. A very practical watch that would be great for everyday or as a run around piece to not have to worry too much about! Built like a tank.
