Where to begin with this incredible watch. You have all the charm of a diving watch with all the flare of a vintage watch. The slate grey dial just begs to be photographed and worn in various lighting, it really dances with the light. The deep black bezel contrasts perfectly between the dial and the case, plus... That case shape is so damn cool! I have a hard time seeing this watch not selling, but trust me when I say that if it doesn't soon... It'll become mine!
Points of Mention
This watch comes with no box or paperwork, whilst currently running there is no service history with this watch. The watch features a base metal case with a stainless steel case back, whilst in overall very good cosmetic condition, on the underside of the case some signs of the base metal wearing can be seen. The friction bezel works as intended.
I LOVE this watch! From the amazing slate grey dial to the deep black bezel, the shape of the case, the design... It really does look incredible on the wrist and off the wrist, this is one I suspect I will without doubt regret selling immediately!

75 years old yet looks just as incredible, if not more incredible, on the wrist today as it did all those years ago! This is one of those designs that transends time and will continue to do so for another 75 years! This is the exact same model that has become famous due to the RAF connection, however this model isn't a military issued model so cannot bare the RAF name. But model, movement, dimensions, dial is all the same! It is an absolute pleasure both on and off the wrist, the dimensions in my opinion are perfect. With Longines releasing the re-edition of their similar model, I would not be surprised to see Omega do the same in the not so distant future!

This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no box or paperwork, the watch ispaired on a generic NATO strap. The watch has no service history, however it is working and running well! The dial has evely patina'd and looks brilliant, the case does feature some signs of age but is overall very good!
I do believe Omega will do a re-edition of this in the near future, so I'd recommend nabbing one of these before they do! Because once they do I wouldn't be surprised to see prices increase 2x minimum!
This Sicura has such a striking blue dial and to pair that it is in such a unique shaped case! It is like a cross between a square and cushion shaped with lovely curves and angles on the sides sloping towards the lugs. It is definitely not a small watch but wears so well due to the shape of the case. Paired on a comfortable and good looking stretchy bracelet, suits it well though I can already picture this watch on a lovely blue leather strap!
One misconception about Sicura is that they are Breitling or have this HUGE connection and therefore people are selling them as Breitlings or with that in the title. The truth is there is a connection but these are not Breitling's, nor where they even made under the same roof or in the same factory. During 1979 the CEO of Sicura saved Breitling by purchased the company, he later closed the doors to Sicura and put all his focus on Breitling. It's a great story and deserves being mentioned that's for sure!
This watch is showing signs of wear on the case and crystal, it is a vintage watch afterall and a lot of brands at this time used stainless steel for the caseback and basemetal for the rest of the watch. Please see all the photos of the watch and request more if you require, I pride myself on providing some of the most honest photos and descriptions of the watches I sell in the market! So do not hesitate to ask.
CWC Military watches have become increasingly popular and you can see why! An affordable way into true military watches and an easy way into a birth year for those born in 1998! 1 year off my birth year ;) Very clean and legible dial, the case is in amazing condition for it's age, especially considering these were used and usually not lightly! All powered by a very reliable quartz ETA movement, get it whilst it's here!
The Rado Captain Cook in 37mm is a great value proposition, not only because it is limited to 1962 but because the watch is built so well, incredibly designed and wears amazingly on the wrist! I think this is easily one of the best watches to come from Rado in a long time. If you want that vintage look and aesthetic but with the reassurance of a new watch, this is the one for you!
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!
This watch is 58 years old... And yet still looks so perfectly suited on the wrist as I'm sure it did 58 years ago. The Omega Seamaster is easily one of the most iconic and instantly recognisable watches alongside the Speedmaster and yet can still be head for a great price. This 1961 Seamaster is a desirable reference 14389 featuring applied roman numerals and subsidiary second hand, beautiful even patina throughout the dial adding to the charm. Seamaster caseback with Omega signed crown and featured on a leather NATO with an Omega signed buckle, what more could you possibly want?
As we all know Omega released a special edition Omega Seamaster 1948 based on the original Seamaster from 1948, this this isn't that reference it's pretty close. I think we will see the prices of vintage Seamasters continue to grow past what they already have in a short amount of time!
Points of Mention
The watch was serviced in 2017 and is in good working order. The dial does have patina as you can see, please view the images and make your own decision on that, we personally love it. The watch is paired on a leather NATO with an Omega signed buckle. Omega Seamaster caseback and Omega signed crown. Overall great condition with some signs of wear to the case, which is to be expected for a 58 year old watch!
This is my favourite reference of vintage Omega Seamaster as it combines all the things we love about the model but is still one of the most affordable versions! The patina on the dial is beautiful, the case is nice. Plus this is a definite strap monster! If I had the cash, this wouldn't even be displayed on the store right now!
Finally a SARB appears on the website, I am really starting to tick all the boxes for selling every model of Seiko! This is a watch I have wanted to personally own for a while, so please take this away from me before I do something silly and buy another watch when I really shouldn't! There is not much to be said that hasn't been said already on this incredible watch! The value proposition it holds is insane... Incredibly solid automatic movement, perfect proportions for majority of wrist sizes, great design, robust and comfortable bracelet... Literally this watch ticks all the boxes and that is why it is so popular.
I am excited to offer you a modern Zodiac! I have been saying for a while that they offer such insane value for the money and here I have a NEW Jetomatic, beautifully inspired by Pilots watches with a modern look. The watch was purchased at retail and sized to the customers wrist and then not worn, so you are getting a new watch with no signs of wear and only 1 month old!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a full set and was purchased in August 2019, the guarantee card was not signed at the retailer in the US but proof of purchase can be provided upon request. The watch is in new condition and only sized at the retailer, it has been in the box and has no signs of wear.
Zodiac has come far with their modern offering and this reference shows their ability to make very well made and great looking watches at an affordable price! The design of this watch is truly brilliant, explorer style dial with a pilot theme, very legible and looks brilliant!
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!
I did not believe my callipers when I tried this watch on, whilst being 37mm it wears a lot larger, especially for a vintage watch! This 1970s Fortis Stratoliner is a great example of a lovely vintage watch that has aged well, looks brilliant today as it did in the 70s! Featuring it's original oversized screw down crown, original crystal with reverse date magnifier and fluted bezel. Plus coming from a brand that is often overlooked when it comes to vintage watches, yet they offer so much value for money and this is a perfect example of that!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork. This is a vintage watch so therefore signs of wear will be seen, the case is gold plated so therefore signs of age and wearing will also be seen on the plating. The watch comes with no known service history, but it is running well.
I think if you are looking for a gold tone, oversized, vintage watch that packs a huge punch for the price then this is it! It is such a lovely piece on the wrist but also a great conversation starter, plus in a room of collectors I would bet money you'd be the only one with one!
Zenith is a brand most famous for their El-Primero movement and the watches that feature that movement, therefore most people overlook their other creations. The Sporto range is definitely one of those, built to be a versatile and sturdy watch to be worn by anyone, it was designed with aesthetics in mind and a great movement. This lovely example features a nicely placed date and what was once a blue dial that has now turned a very faded blue verging on slight purple.
This watch really stands out in a group of vintage watches, that dial catches the eye perfectly and really suits with whatever you decide to wear. I think this is the perfect, affordable, vintage watch for under £500.
Points of Mention
This is a vintage watch from 1980s and does have signs of age, the dial has patina'd from a vivid blue to a very light/faded blue that is almost a purple. The watch still has it's original signed crown too and is working, though service history is unknown.
When I first saw this watch I could not get over that dial, I actually first thought it must be a redial, but after investigation and asking various other watch dealers and experts we have agreed that this dial is original, it would have been a vivid blue and has turned to a near purple/faded blue which is just beautiful. I have said it a million times and will say it a million more times, Zenith offer some of the very best designed and best bang-per-buck in vintage right now.
