  1. My latest addition Probably my grail watch to be honest
  2. What I mean to say was “The Seiko is probably the best made and finished watch but people still associate Seiko with affordable Japanese watches, most people will have NOT of heard of the GS - Grand Seiko range, but will definitely of heard of Omega and Rolex as a brand.” I’ve made a point of enduring my watches (except a couple of daily beaters) are now Tudor, Breitling and Rolex brands.
  3. Definitely the Rolex, simply on the basis that it will keep its value if sold on or part exchanged. I have just part exchanged by 2012 Explorer II (for a new two-tone sub) and got pretty much what I paid for from a dealer last year The Seiko is probably the best made and finished watch but people still associate Seiko with affordable Japanese watches, most people will have head of the Grand Seiko range, but will definitely of heard of Omega and Rolex as a brand.
  4. It’s a very good question and something I took on board when my Father died in 2019, inherited quite a lot and bought quite a few luxury watches. I decided to pick brands easy to offload eg Breitling, Rolex and Tudor. I have a spreadsheet with all my watch purchase details, together with photos and a list of places to sell them. That way if I pop off first, my sons can pick what they want and my wife can sell the rest I still have a few daily beaters eg, G shocks, Seiko, Longines, Tag Heuer - but collectively they are only worth a couple of £K and knowing me, will have fl
  5. Back in the 80’s when Swatches were really popular, several of mine de-generated. Either going brittle or discoloured. They must have made a mint on supplying new straps
  6. Well I couldn't resist getting a Longines VHP GMT model - L37184766. Found one at Peplowjewellers for £772.5 in their sale - RRP is £1090? I would have preferred the 43mm, but I have had Longines 41mm sized watches before and they wear large on the wrist

  8. Dealt with Garry at Swiss Watches Direct for a Bretling Endurance Pro. Arrived band new with warranty card. No issues dealing with them at all !
  9. I doubt a further few months is going to make much difference and if synthetic oils have been used, these don't break down like natural lubricants. I think you will be OK?
  10. Yep ! Had my order cancelled too !!! Apparently any stock in stores are out of bounds and so if the watch isn't in the warehouse, you will get your order cancelled. I had to use the online chat as no phone calls or emails and so I was not pleased when the operator said my order was cancelled. She said that they were cancelling 500 orders. She couldn't guarantee whether anything on the HSamuel site was actually available to buy. I pointed out another watch, that was still showing in stock. The Operator couldn't say whether it was available or not. HSamuel should be putt
  11. Posted on the right day now Today its my recently acquired Rolex Datejust 41 (Model 126301).

  13. Very interesting Jon, I always thought the pack-link service was via Hermes. Just sold a telescope for nearly £1K on ebay. Parcelforce24 cost £25 and another £50 for insurance. Luckily, I found a voucher and reduced the postage down to £66 - still a lot though
  14. Update, they will now supply a link free of charge (additional ones will be charged). So it looks to be resolved
