Vintage, oversized, 18k rose gold, manually wound chronograph, even patina, what more is there to want? I believe these Brands that are no longer with us offer some of the best value in the market, whether it be for a classic dress watch or something more like this beautiful Chronograph. The 38mm 18k Rose Gold case is a lovely warm rose gold tone instead of the deep copper colour we see today in modern watches, vintage rose gold is always a warmer tone. It contrasts perfectly to the dial which has developed beautiful and even patina over time, the blue telemeter scale and red tachymeter scale on the dial are still in great visible condition.
The watch is powered by a serviced Landeron 149 and has a great actuation when initiating, stopping and resetting the chronograph. The watch is paired on a nice Geckota brown leather strap which compliments the warm tone of the 18k Rose Gold and makes it an absolute treat to wear.
Points of Mention
The watch does have patina on the dial. The case was professional polished and is in good condition, the crown was replaced with a tone correct 18k rose gold crown when serviced, the watch was serviced in 2018 and running great.
When people talk value in the industry it's always a tough one as value means different things to different people. When I see a 18k gold vintage chronograph for under £1000 I see incredible value! If this watch was to have a more recognised brand on the dial it would be anywhere from 3x or 10x depending on the brand, that is value. Plus I like the idea that you will probably NEVER see another on someone's wrist.
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!
The design of this watch really jumped out to me as soon as I took it out of the box! The deep black ceramic bezel following by a lovely black dial and clear sandwich style for lume in the numerals, contrasting nicely is the blue minute hand, second hand and text at 6o'clock.... To finish it all off is an awesome Octopus for a logo with 3 stars underneath, the same can be found on the caseback! All this for the price I have it for is scary... And you are getting an ever reliable Seiko NH35 movement!
A fully Carbon Case is not something you see often in watch making, especially at this price point! The weight is so satisfying once on the wrist. When researching this watch I found a description written by WatchBase.com
"For years Giuliano Mazzuoli dreamt of creating a watch with an innovative design, different than any other watch available on the market. The inspiration for his watch came one day when he looked at a pressure gauge. It was in this object that he found his Manometro (it means “pressure gauge” in Italian) watch. Ten years later the watch is just as relevant as when it was first introduced capturing a timeless presence on the watchmaking scene. The popularity and fame of his iconic watch continues to grow among an audience that has an eye for design, and an appreciation for style."
A snow white dial, gold dauphine hands, sub seconds, date at 3o'clock, bright gold case in a refined size... I mean, c'mon! And from a highly regarded Swiss brand, all under £1k! The condition of this lovely piece is amazing, the gold plating is looking bright and crisp, the dial clean and vibrant. I think these 50s Breitling's have a lot to offer for such good value, how long that value will stay untapped is anyone's guess, but I do believe these will start to creep up!
I think makes the perfect addition to any collection, granted it probably wouldn't be a watch you'd wear every day, but it's a watch that could tick a lot of boxes for most collectors and easily see its way into being worn regularly!
Points of Mention
The dial condition is very clean and showing no signs of aging. The case is also very clean with a few faint hairline scratches, gold is intact and not fading or discolouring. The steel back has some scratches, the movement is clean and working well. The watch is paired on a brown Hirsh leather strap.
As soon as this one came across my desk and I saw the condition I knew it was a special piece, how many watches survive this amount of years and still look this good? I know most humans can't say the same! Either way, very excited to offer this one for sale and can't wait to send it off to its new home!
This is the 5th Bulova Moon Watch to pass my hands! Each one has been a delight and not lasted long at all, so if this is on your list don't blink with this one! I still find it amazing that you can get these for such little money and they have REAL history! Design is on point, functionality is great with the Meca-Quartz Chronograph movement, size is large but wears well!
I know collectors who own this and got it to fill the void of a Speedmaster and then I know many collectors who own this along side a Speedmaster! Honestly the argument of this vs the Speedmaster means nothing, get both! :D
Now what we have here is a VERY interesting offering from Girard Perregaux and one you probably not see again! This is the Ref. 7100 Sea Hawk with the beautiful white dial and Pepsi Style, with Gold Numerals, Sapphire Bezel! This watch is running the GP Caliber 215 which, from my research, the 7100 only used for the first 500 models made before they switched to the ETA 2892. This is a true dive watch with 500M of Water Resistance and yet is housed in a case that is 10mm thick, the engineering that has gone into this watch is beyond insane! It is also believed that approximately 2700 models were made in the reference 7100 & 7300 and that covers different variations within the references, such as dial colours and bezels etc! So of this white dial we can only imagine how many are actually out there!
But to add to all that above we also have the original box that the watch was sold in, it is a super funky, heavy and unusual case! It even comes with the outer box signed Girard-Perregaux, what more can you ask for? The outerbox and inner case do have signs of wear and some marks of damage, but functional and such a cool touch! The watch is paired on a custom leather strap that matches the watch perfectly, it currently only has 1 hole that will fit a 7 1/4 inch wrist, so once you get this watch you can go and get another hole punched in to fit you perfectly and enjoy this watch on this strap! Don't wait on this one because I don't think you'll see another come up, especially in condition like this!
Here we have a completely original and untouched Favre-Leuba Harpoon! The reason I add emphasis on "Original" and "Untouched" as one of these watches was sold on a competitors website with a redial and non-original hands for... Are we ready.... $1300! So with that in mind how about I offer you one that has it's original lines on the dial which can only be seen under high magnification and in the right light, it also comes with it's original and insanely domed crystal! The simplicity of this watch is what really makes it charming, the crown is hidden behind the case which only adds to how space like this watch looks on the wrist.
So if you want this watch and want it in original condition and for a very fair price then look no further! We have you covered.
I am excited to bring this very incredible watch to the store as it was one I enjoyed researching about and learning about! The brand Lemania is most famous for it's movement, this case was no difference with the introduction of the Caliber 1345 developed in the beginning of the 1970s. This movement and it's design would see it's way into many big Swiss names we know and love, ranging from Tissot up to Omega and many others. By the 1980s they bring it to the market under their own name and called it the Lemania Regatta, which is the model we have here. Interesting this one is also signed "Elvstrom Sails", though it is not the typical Elvstrom Sail ones you can find on the market or in the documents online, which makes this one certainly interesting!
When you consider what this watch has to offer and how unique it is, it is certainly a lot of watch for the money and someone to be considered if you are not only into the big names. Goodluck finding another one of these on someones wrist in the wild!
Points of Mention
The watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is showing signs of wear and age to the case, the dial is clean. The regatta function works as intended and the watch is running, though there is no service history with this watch.
I had a lot of fun trying to learn what I could on this watch, though I suspect I only discovered a mere drop within the ocean! When considering watches for the personal collection it usually stems from watches like this, ones I look into and get absolutely hooked!
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!
