No, this website is not changing ! However, over the years I have spoken to so many customers ( and friends ) at Shows to know that along with a passion for fine knives there is also a similar and shared interest in fine watches ( I have been told that another common interest is fine pens - but fortunately I have not been bitten by that particular bug ! ).
I intend to sell one or two watches from my own personal collection from time to time (pardon the pun) and will consider selling customers on a commission basis, if there is sufficient interest.
I hope you will enjoy perusing this page
SINN.GERMANY. "104 Pilots - Vintage Leather". Spec. to follow. £695 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD SEIKO "ALPINIST". Japanese import - automatic movement (not quartz ). This watch is not available in the UK and was purchased recently in Japan. Really impressive looking 39mm watch with a gorgeous, green iridescent dial set off by gold indexes. Waterproof to 20bar (screw down crown) and with an internal compass setting. Brown leather strap with a pin buckle. Excellent quality. Stand out from the crowd and wear something different !
Brand new (May 2015), boxed, with all papers.
OMEGA - Planet Ocean. 42mm. In my opinion, one of the Classic Dive watches ! Part of the Seamaster range, this is the very latest version with the updated co-axial 8500 movement - which comes with a 4 year (!!) guarantee from Omega.The Planet Ocean is the watch worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond but this particular version has the orange digits with complimentary stitching on the rubber deployment strap - making for a very attractive and striking combination. This watch has all the correct boxes and cards and was registered in DEC. 2013 - meaning it still has over 3 1/2 years of warranty left. Condition is 99% mint with only just a very slight mark on the case - unobtrusive to the naked eye.
SOLD TAG HEUER PROFESSIONAL 2000. Another discontinued model, this time by Tag. According to the Jewellers receipt that came with the watch, it dates to around 1999. Despite that, it is in excellent, near mint condition with just a few light "desk swirls" on the bracelet. Both the case and glass are unmarked and the bezel is nice and positive. There are a few extra links for the bracelet also included. Unfortunately, it does not have the outer box but does have the original zip case.
This is the Quartz version and it has had a new battery fitted in the last couple of months but not by me, so I cannot guarantee it was pressure tested ?
The size across, including crown is 42mm ( but the watch wears a lot smaller. I believe this is the mid-size version ? )
I bought this to wear as my everyday "work" watch but never wore it as I fell in love with ( and bought ! ) a Bremont Solo, which now happily accompanies me on a daily basis.
SOLD BREITLING "SUPEROCEAN HERITAGE". Another superb watch that is spending too much time on my watchwinder. This is the 42mm version (which I prefer over the much larger 46mm) and with the Mesh bracelet, looks good whether worn casual or for the office - I think the blue bezel makes the watch look a little less "macho" and with the white/silver dial, makes for a stunning combination that is bound to attract compliments ! I am the second owner of this watch and like the previous owner (a jeweller) only wore it occassionally, hence it is near mint condition. Also included is a genuine Breitling leather strap which has not been worn by me but seems to have had very light use by the previous owner. Complete with everything it should have. All in all, a great package at a big saving on the current list price.
SOLD OMEGA SEAMASTER PRO. 300 GMT This now discontinued chronometer is known affectionately as "The Great White" and is perhaps the most desirable of this model. I bought this model from America and have since had it serviced by Swiss Time Services ( an approved Omega Service Centre ), in Essex. It is now in absolutely mint condition with 18 months of STS guarantee still valid. I have replaced the bracelet, which is included, and the watch now wears a Hirsch Sharkskin leather strap ( well, what else could you put on a Great White ! ). The watch comes with the red box and all cards, all in excellent condition. I have only worn this watch occasionaly and it is in near new condition.
Those of you who have bought of me before know that anything from my own personal collection is of the highest order and this watch is no exception. £1750
