  1. Ive just ordered this https://www.christopherward.com/sale/c60-trident-bronze-pro-600/S60-43ADA2-B00B0-VT.html
  2. Birth year Bulova 1961 A good year
  3. Yes. I never thought to go into the other stores nearby. To be honest I was glad to get out of the centre. I was more surprised by think the answers she gave me. She said its been replaced by the avenger. Little difference of about another £1000. Is the the Colt being discontiinued though? I havent read anything if it is? Why do beaverbrooks and the like have them if the Breitling store doesnt? Surreal
  4. I took my life in my hands yesterday and wandered into the Trafford Centre with the sole intention of looking at a Grey Automatic Breitling Colt. I went into the Breitling boutique I couldnt see any so had a chat with the assistant. She told me they dont sell the Colt anymore, they have stopped doing quartz and have had no grey faced watch since last november. When I told her its actually automatic she asked me where I had seen them. On the Breitling website. She said the website is for the World and the UK doesn't always carry the same range. Was I actu
  5. Hes a big tall lad.so I went for the bigger one. The Gentleman quartz. Ive told my admn staff if they want any pointers to buy me one ill have this one https://www.chisholmhunter.co.uk/zenith-pilot-tipo-cp-2-brown-chronograph-dial-brown-leather-strap-watch.html Im not sure he could be bothered setting an automatic up either.
  6. Tissot it is!! Ive fancied the Le Locle myself for a while. Id better not get him that one, I might just keep it.
  7. I have a member of staff retiring and obviously I have decided it would be nice if we gave him a watch as a leaving present. He has sports watch he wears which his Son gave him, so I thought it would be nice to get him something he could wear when out with his wife for a meal. If we ever get into that position again. Any suggestions around the £350 mark? Preferably newso it has a nice box/. Also I need to buy it by tomorrow. All advice gratefully received
  8. Thanks for the words . I’ve already got a few older models already smiths, roamer , Favre leuba, bulova but they just sit in a box. I’d never wear them. the Hamilton gets a lot of wear, as would the speedmaster. I’m having a good perusal of the net and learning all the time.
  9. One of the things I love about this watch hobby is I know next to nothing and so I’m constantly surprised at things I stumble across. My wife bought me a hamilton watch for my birthday which is mechanical. I love it. I like winding it up. It takes me back to my boyhood timex watch. It feels different somehow to my other watches. I’m now going to treat myself to a nice watch. Imagine my delight when I found out the omega speedmaster is only hand wound! I realise probably 99% of the forum knew this fact, but I had no idea. Firmly on my list with one eye on the sales. Any other
  10. Surely they will have to start generating sales though to bring the money through the door? I can’t see demand anywhere near what it was before the virus. I may wrong but I’m thinking massive sales.
  11. How do esteemed members of the forum view the next couple of months from a watch buying point of view? I’m after a breitling and w.bruford had one, sadly the wrong colour for me, with 40% off. Are these prices typical for breitling and can we expect to see a blood bath on the high street. I intend going to the Trafford centre boutique , spend a couple of hours trying the different sizes on and then hit them with a cash offer. Are there any bargains flying around at the moment? Strange times we are living through.
  12. £200 from eBay. its a big birthday, Gary. Get two watches. That’s how it starts btw I had mine serviced by longine and it came back looking like new
