I've seen another watch I'd like. A relative cheapy too. Might even get more than one of them. Just released so a bit hard to get hold of at the moment.

A Moonswatch! I like the look of them.

Some of those are very nice, looks like the original Speedmaster Automatic watch with styling from Swatch, I like the grey version, although some are a bit…er…..odd shall I say Rolling with laughter

I had a very nice Speedy Auto same as this but it was from the Omega Olympic collection, I sold it as I have never been keen on chronos, preferring simpler face designs. Regards

Lovely i6 has now gone, but not me......

Please let me know if anything in my post offends you, as I may wish to offend you again......

I like the Mercury version, problem is after reading the spec’s your paying £200 for a plastic…oops sorry Bioceramic cased quartz movement and it’s only 3bar proof……it’s a very, very cheap watch and your paying £170 for the design. Regards

I have no interest in watches but was staggered that someone would pay £155k for a broken watch, rare or not

Australia 2013 Freelander 2 2.0T SE Auto Fuji White

A bit large for a watch, but I have polished up to 5000 grit & flame blued, actually with a heat gun, the clock hands, needed maintenance. First go at bluing & am happy with the result. The bit of purple is heating a bit under 290°C & the grey colour is a bit over 290°C. 2 days to polish the clock hands.

In the Times this morning . During WW2 the Luftwaffe seized all military watches from allied aircrew . Oddly they let Rolex supply new ones to officers via the Red Cross on a ‘ pay later agreement ‘

This is true it’s well known, and these watches are sought after by collectors, they are just the normal everyday (for 1940’s) Rolex watch, not a military issue version (which are extremely sought after) but it is the history behind them that makes them valuable.

I think the standard mil issues watches were confiscated mainly for souvenirs by the guards, so Rolex (being in a neutral country!) saw an opportunity being Swiss Wink Regards
