  1. It looks like these were limited to 300, so the chances of getting one are pretty much impossible- probably just as well at that price
  2. About 19cm in circumference (that’s just over 7.5 inches) So I guess about average???
  3. I have one and it’s one of my all time favourites
  4. A final update.. Well the unwanted watch was sent back and they ordered the new watch (I didn't have to pay the difference at this point). Well within the delivery time period, I got a Whatsapp message from Rick, saying that the watch had arrived and that I would be invoiced for the difference. After a couple of days, I hadn't heard anything and had to chase Rick through Whatsapp - I did then get sent the payment invoice and was able to pay the difference. The watch arrived the next day and it is a very nice watch indeed. I seems that Rick does most of the donkey work and communication via emails was sporadic. I don't think they are dodgy but like other grey market outlays, they are probably understaffed and hence chaotic in their working - I had similar trouble with Watches of Essex - which turned out was a one guy company Anyway, here is the picture of the new watch Sorry to hear you had issues, they do seem legit but a bit unorganised, with Rick seemingly doing all the customer communications. As I found emails and using the website chat was usually a waste of time as I rarely got a response. I too had to tough in order to get them to collect my unwanted watch, although to be fair re-ordering a new one was a lot better. Have they resolved your issue ??? Now I have asked about purchasing a Breitling Aerospace from them (RRP £3260, their price £2850 - -12.5%) - I sent a request through Chrono24 yesterday but nothing heard so far though
  5. Breitling still out from a night out
  6. Lovely piece , no doubt very expensive though
  7. There are plenty of places to try... At least with Rolex you will definitely be able to sell it. But expect to be knocked down though Eg I bought a Two-tone Datejust from Watchfinder for £9750 - six months later I sold it to BQ watches and they offered £8000. BQwatches Watchfinder Blowers Hackett watches
  8. Got one of those myself, awesome watch I assuming that they couldn’t fit them all in, hence baton, Roman numerical, baton etc. Maybe a dot would have been better or smaller numerals??
  9. New arrival - Breitling Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 46 - UB0127211B1A1
  10. This just arrived, so I will be wearing it later on you can’t beat the “classics”
  11. I am really impressed with my Bremont watch..I just love the clear dial, large face and velvety strap I have had a few Tudors but owning a few Rolexes seemed a bit pointless so so.d them off. The Bremont watches are a bit different. I wouldn’t pay full price, I got mine in an Ernest Jones sale reduced from £4K to £3K with a free £200 Wolf watch winder (not that I ever use watch winders though)
  12. Basically Vostok or the Russian spelling Bostok, means “East” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vostok_watches
  13. Just in My first Bremont watch and it is certainly a very nicely finished watch!! Got £1k off in an Ernest Jones Sale.
  14. We’ll sort of??? They emailed me a DHL label last week and collected the Breitling I wanted to return. It arrived back to them Thursday morning. i Whatsapp’d someone called Rick on the Friday (he told me the labels were being emailed to me) and confirmed that the watch arrived OK and was still in unused condition. He said that they would provide an invoice for the difference on the more expensive Breitling watch, but nothing received so far. I don’t know if they have ordered the new one yet, but did give a good price with a 4-5 week delivery. However, if I have to chase them at the end of this week and they haven’t ordered the new watch, then I will ask for a refund!! BTWvi have already bought a watch from them without any issues but like a lot of these places, if you want to return, exchange or change your order etc, customer service is basically non existent.
