  14. eBay has been good to me. I have a good method for selling watches that results in me generally being net positive and i've grabbed many a bargain on the other side. Occasionally a listing will catch my eye that has photos that aren't great and an auction end time that is a bit awkward and i'll put in a cheeky bid and sometimes, i just so happen to win. That has happened again for a very pleasing price and as it was winging (incidental pun) its way to me I thought either i'll relist it well and make a cheeky bob or two or i'll like it and keep it. We're going for option 2 folk so here's my first foray with Bremont, the Submarine S301: 40mm case and about 48mm lug to lug which is perfect for me. This Trip-Tick case malarkey is pretty cool as the black section gives the watch a sense of depth from any angle, it's kind of like an optical illusion which is the opposite of something like a Tudor Black Bay that makes you feel like you have an anvil on your wrist. The bezel is matte ceramic with a matte dial so the vintage accents on the dial and crown feel really well balanced and authentic (ironically). Red accents are spot on too. The indicies are not applied but I think this is actually a good move in adding some subtly to a dial with few things going on. Colour matched date wheel follows the same theme. Case back is nice and thematic as everything Bremont needs to be. A least it's a sea plane..... Box and papers are OK. Movement rated at COSC level certification. They quote ISO 3159 which I understand is the same as COSC but I presure the difference is that these are not sent to Switzerland. Provided with a good stainless steel and a leather strap but I stuck straight onto a nato which is my usual preference for dive watches. Decent watch roll. So I like this a lot and pleased to have finally got hold of a Bremont which I knew was always going to happen one day. Should this cost more than a Tudor Black Bay? No, but it is clearly a quality watch belonging somewhere in that tier.

  17. Scurfa Diver One today One of the first watches from Scurfa These were given to all the dive team on the Seven Kestrel dive vessel and all were individually named on the back There were 10 unnamed ones and this is one of them, so it’s a pretty rare bird. Bit of useless information for the day… Daylight savings now applied…

  19. SMP today. Model 2231.80. Made in two versions, one with a black dial and this one with an electric blue dial. Full size case, bezel and insert, 'Bond' bracelet and crowns are all titanium. Calibre 1120 (a modified ETA 2892-A2) self winding chronometer with rhodium plated finish and 44 hour power reserve. Rhodium plated sword hands. Domed, sapphire anti reflective crystal. Bezel insert has blue enamelled numbers and markers. Luminova to markers and hands. 45mm diameter. Serial number dates it to 1999-2000, the blue models first appearing in 1999. The black version was the commoner of the two, though I've never seen one and I've certainly not seen another blue one on here for a long time...I think Mike ('Blue Knight') might have had one.

  35. Hey guys as some of you may have seen I recently acquired a lovely Mont Blanc Chronograph but due to an expected bill arriving I had to list it after only a few days which I was gutted about!! BUT luckily a friend of mine was interested but didn't have the full amount I was asking for so I kindly done him a deal with his vintage omega he never wore and had the rest in cash which was a huge help for me to. I have uploaded a couple of quick pics to show you guys and see what you think but I will get some proper pics when I can. The case, crown and crystal are all original and in almost pristine condition. The dial is also original but has a tiny bit of patina. Recently serviced the beginning of the year and seems to keep perfect Time so I'm extremely happy.
