Tudor Heritage Black Bay Bronze
Who doesn't like Tudor? Especially this watch! You get all the essence and heritage of the Black Bay but in a Bronze case, it is truly unique and for something like this to come from a brand that is so closely related to Rolex is just awesome! The movement inside is the MT5601 COSC which is a real work horse! This is an overall great package for someone wanting a great watch that is unique in the fact that it is Bronze... And Bronze is certainly still hot!

I have owned and sold multiple Seiko Turtle's now and this is by far my favourite! I absolutely love that Seiko decided to do something quite different with this one and they really did it well. The black dial and black bezel, the offset of grey on the bezel and the colour of the surround on the lume... Compliment all that with the iconic and striking orange minute hand! Boom you have a seriously awesome watch for photos and, most importantly, on wrist! To anyone who has tried a Turtle on I don't need to mention how they wear, for those of you that haven't they wear perfectly!
This 1974 CWC was assigned to the British Royal Navy, specifically the Fleet Air Arm which is one of five arms of the Royal Navy. This is one of those watches that if watches could speak we would all be in for an incredibly long and interesting night, the stores it could tell would be powerful. On wrist you really get a sense of utilitarianism, coming in at 39mm with a very legible dial, a solid case design and paired on a NATO... You can't help but feel a sense of power with this on the wrist.
CWC has been providing the military with watches for many years and as you can imagine not many survive the day to day life of a military person, therefore for us to have an example of this watch is something quite special. We are honoured to offer this for sale and we have confidence that whomever buys this, they will enjoy it as much as we have.
Points of Mention
This watch was serviced in 2018 and is running well. The case and crystal are in unpolished condition and therefore signs of age and use can be seen. Some of the luminescent material on the dial has begun to fade away and even fall off, none of it is loose in the dial or movement. The running seconds hand in the subsidiary dial at 9o'clock has been replaced with a stainless steel arrow hand.
It is no secret I am a huge fan of CWC and military watches, it is also no secret I am not a fan of NATO straps... BUT, I seriously enjoyed wearing this watch and switching out NATO strap... I think a military watch may change my mind on them! I believe this is a truly great buy, so much history packed into such a small object.
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!
Vintage Seiko is always something special and whenever we get one in we all get very excited, however this one put us dead in our tracks. The design of this watch is so well thought out and shows what Seiko do well. The crosshair silver dial has developed a lovely and even patina, the gold tone hands are in great condition. But where this watch gets me is that date, it is a black date with gold text, how damn cool is that? Then a gold tone inner bezel, this watch is just beautiful.
If you are a Seiko fan then this watch is easily a no-brainer! However if you haven't given Seiko a chance in the past I would say here is your chance with a beautiful reference and one with a history that can continue to fascinate for years to come!
Points of Mention
This is sold as a watch only, no box or paperwork is provided and there is no service history. The watch features a gold plating which is showing signs of wear and discolouration in places, however it doesn't look out of place in my opinion due to the watch clearly looking old. The dial has developed an even patina, please see the photos to make up your own decision. The watch is in running condition and comes paired on an original leather Seiko strap.
I love this watch. I think if my description didn't show that then I don't know what will. I mean just look at the photos! If this watch had a "Prestigious Swiss" brand name on it I easily think it could be 10x the price and depending on that brand people wouldn't even take a double look and just buy! Snatch this up.
We are excited to offer this awesome CWC G10 with an unusual Green Dial, their is genuine history with the green dial as they were made in the 1990s gulf war era and was an option to the standard black dials. This model was sold publicly in November 2017 and comes with it's full box and paperwork, original NATO strap is provided however the Bark & Jack NATO it is currently on works so well I don't know why CWC haven't set up a joint venture yet!
If you are a fan of CWC then I would say this is perfect for you! I have seen MANY CWC's and hadn't seen this one before, you'll definitely stand out in a room of military watches. These are still available at retail, however this is virtually unworn and comes with a extra NATO of incredible quality!
Points of Mention
The watch comes with it's original box, paperwork and NATO, currently it is paired on a Green Bark & Jack NATO which suits the watch so much better than the original NATO. The watch is virtually unworn with no signs of wear.
As said above, this is the CWC for the person with all the military watches or the person wanting one most won't have! You will not see many of these around... And that's amazing to me!
Another one from the personal collection coming to the store and what a beauty this one is! This is a Sicura from the 70s in complete original condition and untouched, running well and looking amazing! On the inner rotating bezel you have 3 pops of colour, white, blue and red and those 3 colours are also on the subseconds dial, this pop of colour offsets the black and silver tone of the dial nicely, also paired with an original bright orange second hand! The black tachymetric scale on the bezel adds a super sporty feel to this chronograph.
All this combined makes for a great 1 minute chronograph that gives the Omega Chronostop and Chron-Oris a real run for their money! Houses in a large 45mm case that is wider than it is lug to lug, makes it wear similar to a turtle! Honestly, get this watch before you regret not adding it to your collection!
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.
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!
Points of Mention
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!
Tudor Pelagos Blue! What is not to like? This watch has it ALL at a relatively affordable price when compared to it's competition, it truly dominates the market! I wish that Tudor will implement the clasp to the rest of the range, it is ground breaking from a comfort stand point and so easy to use on the fly! The watch is in used condition but definitely not bad condition! The discount you are getting compared to the cost of retail makes this an incredible buy!
