  1. Cal.134 "El Primero" circa 1990
  2. A recent Speedie thread made me think this today.
  3. Some excellent vintage models Voyager. Purple Horse Golden Castle The Captain Cook etc. Of course as @relaxer7 says can be a minefield. Always found them decent quality if you steer away from the bling although there are some dodgy vintage bracelets out there with dubious heritage also. The newer Swatch models look fairly good build quality in the price range from the ones I have handled although some of the quartz are a little pricey IMO. Sadly hold there value like a Cadillac driving off the forecourt
  4. Light & Spacey today... The watch that is
  5. Steinhart ostensibly are homage watches nothing wrong with them I have owned a couple in the past and the quality is apparent to see, but you need to ask yourself do you like Steinhart because it resembles the other watch? Then as others have said can you afford the other watch if so why settle for second best and then be racked with the what if scenario and find yourself a good deal out of pocket should you decide you made the wrong decision. Both have a strong following on the forums but it is worth considering that the Tudor has a certain prestige & history with bricks and mortar traders should you wish to PX down the line. There are certain brands that you know you love but also know they are going to lose money as soon as you purchase them TBH Tudor is one unless it becomes a future classic like the Sub but who can foretell that So ultimately it's heart or Head with that one. The Steinhart will always do well in forum circles for trades etc and you would probably take a lesser financial hit but it's a limited market. For me had I the money without to much worry I would go Tudor everytime.
  6. Lovely example. I like the Crosshair dial & the B.O.R on these and to get the full set is an excellent bonus. Enjoy.
  7. Another that is not overly struck by the Moonwatch, I have tried a couple. My preference is more vintage the Racing MKII is lovely but I had always hankered for a 125 and managed to get one a while back and must say I am not disappointed. A Also quite keen on the Broadarrow
  8. Four Seasons in one day here. Have a good weekend all.
  9. I have had an itch for one of these for a couple of years so have been keeping an eye out for second hand. The newer version is nice as is the Skyquest but to be honest although the Sellita SW330 is a competent movement I do like the gen 1 as it has an Eterna Calibre 39 on board. Looking to get an owners perspective if possible? For anyone interested there is a nice right up here. https://www.ablogtowatch.com/monta-oceanking-dive-watch-review/
  10. Small but perfectly formed 120 auto today.
  11. I do own the watch so don't really need to see your link but thanks. You don't have to justify anything. I was merely pointing out you were incorrect on sizing on this particular version. No biggie. There are a few versions of the Jump hour this is the Harrison. A little bit of light reading here. https://www.christopherward.co.uk/media/manuals/c9jhmk2_manual.pdf. If you like the MAALS knock yourself out for me it's a bit pre school.
  12. Ah it's actually 43mm but as you say horses for courses. Nice to see you have done your homework nothing like an informed choice
  13. Nothing bland about this IMO of course.
  14. You may already have a "Grail" for LV collectors obviously this will depend on what serial and variant you have.
  15. Can you get the Baltic back I think the Vapaus though a nice watch looks a little odd with the white DW and quarter markers but that is just my take I also know it is bad form to critique another's choice but you did ask. The Baltic for me has an almost perfect appearance I would prefer the handset to be a duller shade to match the chapter ring and then I would be calling you a fool
  16. Do you like it? These Invicta's can make great everyday wearers at an affordable price. Seiko NH35A movement & the case and bracelet are ok TBH. If it is a private seller there may be some negotiation room on the price but £45 seems reasonable but be realistic in expectation it may be great & it may fall to pieces in a month Invicta are notably inconsistent in QC.
  17. 1963 ish Seamaster Deville unsure of the Calibre until its service I am not brave enough yet to venture into the unishell opening world
