  1. Past hour
  2. Slow leaks are terribly exasperating... EMPTY
  3. The market price of these pieces is the price people are willing to pay....we can all probably remember when these pieces sat in Ad's for an eternity.... my 16518 was in my local Ad for over 18 months before I was tempted to pull the trigger only when offered a 18% discount..the Huge demand from China and new markets and YouTube hype I believe is causing the so called shortage ..almost every other Rolex piece is being dragged upwards by this demand 2 years ago you could buy a nice early Datejust for well under £1500 trying finding one today under £3K.. just 2 years ago I bought a 2 line Sub from a 2nd hand jewellers in Guildford for £3k try finding one today under £6k... as for my 16518 I paid just over £6k new.. now selling for £12k+......it doesn't matter to me they will never be sold so the value is irrelevant....remember what is a Hot watch today is no guarantee it will remain a hot watch tomorrow ... but the reality is many new pieces are selling at double retail today and showing no signs whatsoever of slowing down ..the demand remains high despite what some may say or hope...
  4. Today
  5. Now THAT is a description! cheers Eski
  6. It's a Seiko Kinetic. This one is circa 11 years old, but the watch is still being made by Seiko as the Seiko SKA761P1, which is identical to my one, save for a slightly different dial text. Affectionately known as the 'Big F***in' Kinetic, its not really very big by today's standards. It's a great watch that has stood the test of time. There are many YouTube videos of torture tests on this watch, aa it's tough as nails. The pusher is a power test button to see what level of charge the watch has. Hope this helps!

  7. being lucky enough to also have both the oyster and jubilee being manufactured by those who owns the name copyright I believe, I find the jubilee to be more dressy of the two and oyster more sport / causal, that said the new R GMTs now come on jubilees to some dismay of aficionados, but I think it suits both deano
  8. A friend bought a box of assorted junk at a village auction for under a fiver, because there was a toy in it his daughter wanted. A few years later he went through it to see if their was anything in it worth keeping before it went in the bin. one of these,
  9. I see, would be interesting to see it when you get the chance!
  10. I used to buy bags of watches and parts for tinkering and messing around with. While 99%+ was total junk every now and again I would get something interesting. Here is a few of my better finds.
  11. I actually like both, but if I had to pick one, then the Jubilee just shades it. That's a perfect match, like they were made for each other.
  12. I do like the odd Chinese cheapo. This came today, about the price of three packets of fags including post etc. 35mm without crown, 35 jewel rudimentary movement, quick set day/date, manual and auto wind, non hacking. Obviously disposable if anything goes wrong, but I've got a few manual Shanghai watches, and not had any issues to date.

  14. I'm a complete noob, but I've never seen one of those with the cut-away dial & pusher before, what is it?
  15. Jubilee bracelets go perfectly with a sheepskin coat and a battered jag.
  16. Bottom one looks more like a hubcap than a propellor to me, but a cool idea none the less.
  17. Woah, both of them look awesome. The 2nd one would look really nice with a nautical themed watch.
  18. i wasnt that keen on mine so i sold it... yep. Any how Irfan! Hows the car search going sir? another i should have kept.
  19. Result, a runt of a litter maybe, but i bet you dont get rid!
