This is a very unusual and rarely found Oris Quartz! I have not seen many roaming around and the ones I have, have been in terrible condition and not working. Right here we have one that is working and looks great, lovely gold case and white dial which is in clean condition. Comes on a bracelet made "Kreisler" which is a USA brand, nice and comfortable. But would look amazing on a brown leather! Perfect dress watch.

When it comes to modern Seiko and references, there really isn't many that come as close to fame as the Alpinist. That iconic green dial with the dial layout, design ques and 2 crown system... It's an instant icon within watch collecting and now discontinued! This is one of those watches I believe will only grow in appreciation by the masses, it offers so much for the money and even if it doubled in price I think it could still give the other watches in that price point a solid run for their money.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a brand new and unworn example of the Seiko Alpinist with it's box and paperwork. You cannot get much better than this.
This will be the 5th Alpinist I have sold! I cannot get enough of them. I say it everytime, but green really isn't my colour, though this watch seems to sway me everytime!
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!
It is believed that only 1000 units of this beautiful Omega 1510 Constellation MegaQuartz 2.4Mhz in whole, whereas it is believed that as few as 100 of those 1000 where this beautiful Aventurine dial variant which has the most beautiful sparkle I have ever seen! Each watch with this dial was done by hand by applying a thin layer of Aventurine crystal dust onto a thin baseplate of metal and fibreglass. Due to this process it is very common, if not inevitable now, that the dials may crack. This dial has 2 cracks that are only noticeable in a certain light and are not too extreme at all, it has to be said that those 2 cracks are the only imperfections of this watch! The watch was serviced in October 2017!
This watch comes with everything, it's full box and papers and has been serviced so it is running well! The overall condition of the watch I would say is 10/10 - You wouldn't believe the watch is 37 years old, looks like it has only been worn a handful of times. I would say this is a once in a lifetime watch, I highly doubt we will see many more of these go for sale in the future, but even if they do they will not be of quality like this and a complete set! So do not hesitate on a watch like this and give me a call!
I am excited to bring you this beautiful 9ct Gold Omega from 1962, powered by the reputable Cal. 552! This lovely watch comes with it's Omega box which, just like the watch, is in great condition! It was serviced in 2017 and running great. The aethetic of this watch is beautifully clean, an eggshell dial, gold indices, black hour and minute hand with a gold tone second hand! Although this is one clean dial you cannot help but get lost in the small details, you will continue to love this watch for many many years!
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!
Dreyfuss & Co. are a brand that have gone relatively unnoticed by myself, but I have to say the overall quality that they provide is incredible and they do take a hit on the grey market. So the price we have this offered at makes this watch an absolute steal! You're getting a realiable Sellita movement, great build quality, nice design and that's not even mentioning the box it comes with! Surely that alone is worth half the price minimum, it's a great wooden 5 piece watch box!
Points of Mention
The watch is in overall very good condition for a used watch, few hairline scratches but nothing major. The clasp that threads into the strap does not close very tight so would recommend being careful with that, the caseback does clip in but you can hear it rattle from time to time, this is mainly due to the design.
I would be buying this for the watch box alone, it's incredible! But in all seriousness the watch is very cool, whilst typically not my kind of thing and maybe a little big for me personally, I really like the design and it's actually very comfortable on wrist!
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.
LIP was founded in 1867 and has certainly been through a lot, though before those tough times in the 70/80s they made some very innovative and funky watches, this was certainly one of them! LIP has been reborn and is producing some very great re-issues, they even have one of this watch in Automatic, but this being the OG Electronic, worlds 2nd electronic watch, it is a special watch!
Let's not forget that this also has a super compressor case with inner bezel, plus it's original cross-hatched crowns! It doesn't get much better than this, it is also paired on a very fitting vintage bracelet that suits the watch very well!
Points of Mention
The watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or papers. The luminous material on the dial and hands is aged evenly and missing a small amount on the hour hand. The crowns operate the watch, though are a little tight. The movement can be a little temperamental after changing the time and stop, with a small shake it continues fine, strongly recommend a service!
Granted! This watch is definitely showing some age and would have seen some better days... It's a true watch, honest and incredible. When I get a vintage watch like this in I get very excited! These are the kind of things that get my gears going. Don't hang about on this one!
How damn cool is this lovely Stowa Convertible travel clock / pocket watch! It is powered by a manual wound movement and can be rested on it's extended standard at the back, the whole case is a gold-tone plate in incredible condition! The fact this has survived with it's original box and Stowa tag is incredible too! All protected by a lovely leather case that is also in great condition, I feel as if this watch hasn't seen the light an awful amount of times!
What a special watch we have here! This Longines Admiral 5 Star features a very impressive Monocoque case, this means the watch case is made from 1 piece and opens through the front. If you pair a white dial with a yellow gold tone case I immediately get excited, no different here! The case shape of this watch is also incredible and hugs the wrist perfectly, the presence is also very special as it wears larger than its dimensions, thus making it perfect for someone wanting a smaller watch but not to look small on their wrist!
Points of Mention
The dial is in very good and clean condition with no markings or signs of aging. The case bears some marks and scuffs, slight fading and discolouration as photographed. Longines signed crown at 3o'clock. The watch comes paired on a worn black leather strap. The crystal is in good condition and the watch is running well.
I think Longines offer some incredible vintage watches and all still at very fair prices. For me this is the perfect watch to have a lot of fun with strap changing, I would really go wild with this watch and get some crazy colours! Red, Blue, Green... The white dial, yellow gold tone case and the case shape make it the perfect watch to do it!
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.
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!
