  19. Well today my newest addition arrived the Casio F-91W. Only £9.99 from Amazon directly, and a must for any budding collector. In my opinion it has to be one if not the most famous watch in the world. I'm sure most of you know it has a stopwatch, alarm, light and 12/24 hour time modes. I do like the watch and think it's great value for money from Casio. One thing that has got me puzzled is there is a tiny "U" under the water resist writing. I had a quick search on the internet, and all I could find was a video explaining the comparisons between fakes. The alleged fake had a thicker, bi

  20. No doubt other dealers will be buying too, but there is no definitive guide to what a watch is worth. Where I might stop at £100, the winning bid at £110 thinks they got a bargain. When two private bidders want a watch badly then they can (do) get carried away, which is what I expect happened with the Omega Geneve. The guide prices are so inaccurate that they often prove the point that is is difficult to value what other people think the watch is worth. 18 and 21 not so much, but 40, 50 and 60 certainly do. Younger people often prefer a Michael Kors . Many watches I buy I will not

  22. hi sounds like a plan Davey, hope its ok and its a keeper and I think this thread serves as a reminder and useful tips/ & perils etc to us all about buying pre owned watch's, dealing with continental suppliers whilst handing over our hard earned . deano

  23. Deffo. My father in law has his late dad’s AirKing, such a cool watch. He wears it like it’s a £50 Seiko, gardening, washing pots, whatever, which I also love.

  27. I’d take the GS. Rolex as a brand is not very me. Makes me think of flashy blokey blokes that have reached an age where the date needs to be magnified to be read. And it’s too much of a statement for my taste, as good as they obviously are. The brand has different connotations outside of the watch collecting community, which is where I spend most of my watch-wearing days.

  28. Thanks to all for all of the suggestions. I now have a plan, make a list of everything that you have recommended, find images of all the watches, show them all to Oliver to see which ones he likes. If he decides he doesn't want any of them he can have a tankard - and I'll have a watch

  31. well I own a Gs now and its a match in quality, finish , presence on the wrist as my date just which is a more comparable model than a sub or diver/ sports Rolex etc . I think Seiko knew they had to take the Seiko off the dial to establish as a separate brand ( like Toyota did with Lexus, how old am I ) and more up market along with the cost . As I understand Seiko can service spring drive in the uk now ?( sure I read it somewhere), although mine is not a snowflake the ones I have seen for sale have gone quickly and for good money ( granted they may have taken a hit on cost new more than a Ro

  34. I "wanted", to get my daughter a watch for her 21st too. I "wanted" to get her an Omega or a Tag Heuer or something. It turns out ,"she", didnt want a watch. I ended up giving her money, and a necklace (I thought it was rubbish! ..though "she" likes it!). I guess, what Im trying to say is, find out what he really wants. If he wants a watch..fine, try and gauge what sort of thing he would like. I think its really hard buying a watch for somebody as a present...as unless you know what they really want...it could be a minefield! Some of the younger guys at work, kn

  35. If that's the look you want, have a look at a Seiko SNN233. Less likely to break, and if it does, probably easier to get fixed And they're £127 on Amazon, plus the price of a fabric strap.

  37. I think it's pretty clear Davey wants to keep the watch and I can't say I blame him! He's mentioned in the past his confidence in his 'watch guy' and for the price being quoted for a service, even if that does double, in view of the purchase price and the rarity of the piece, notwithstanding the strap issue, it still represents fantastic value. If he can squeeze something from the vendor, then that's just icing on the cake.

  38. Sorry it's taken awhile to get some pictures sorted. For size comparison against an Orient Mako II. It is certainly heavier than the Mako but still feels comfortable on the wrist. They set out to make a tough watch and have moved away from some of the norm. The pushers and crown are triple sealed and can be operated underwater, even with the crown out (it's not screw down) just in case you need to change the date while at the bottom of the ocean. I quite like the knurling on the face of the pushers and there is a positive feel when they are pressed. They also fit a har
