  1. Where to buy? pre-owned watches

    Watch forums? 50 posts here and you'll be able to see the sales section. Other than that I'd take a look at Chrono24.com which is basically a showroom for watch dealers.
  2. An original vintage dial? In good condition? Probably not that easy on eBay but I'm not an Omega expert. You might get lucky at Ofrei. It just seems like an easy choice to buy a pre-refurbed dial from eBay - it's much cheaper plus you get to keep the original.
  3. I'd keep the original and buy a replacement/refurbished dial from eBay - there are hundreds on there and it'll be a lot cheaper.
  4. Vintage Omega Seamaster or Geneve would be a good choice. As a bit of a Titoni fan, I also feel compelled to recommend a Cosmo King or an Airmaster. Here's some of mine:
  5. Looking for some advice

    Grumpy old git. I think it's a fair question and not exactly "thousands" either. Nobody likes to end up with an expensive pup they've paid way too much for. They may also want to sell it further down the line in which case quality and residuals matter.
  6. Looking for some advice

    Hi Jamie and welcome to the forum. Plenty of nice watches in your price range but personally I'd be looking at a Sinn of some sort. Check out Jura, Page & Cooper or Chronomaster for some examples. I had one of these - an EZM3:
  7. What would you buy?

    I'd stay away from the Dynamic. Described as "extensive sympathetic restoration" by the seller but I'd prefer to call it "dodgy Indian redial".
  8. TGI Friday watches...

    I'm doing a baked bean comparison test tomorrow. But which watch should I wear?
  9. What about this watches?

    As much as I wish I had a 25 year old girlfriend, I have absolutely no idea! Those were the days... Maybe just take her shopping and buy a watch she likes.
  10. What about this watches?

    It's a cheap knock-off of a Chanel. What more do you need to know
  11. I'd buy a Precista: PRS-3, £340: PRS-82, £425
  12. Beginning my watch obsession, need advice please

    Some will disagree but if you want a "real" watch I can't understand why you are discounting automatics. That said, a Seiko solar is a solid choice. I'd also keep an eye on websites such as Jomashop and Ashford as you may well get a decent Swiss quartz within your budget. Good luck!
  13. Phobos wave master , short review

    Looks very nice - probably one of the best Chinese diver's watch that I've seen. I look forward to more details - will you be doing a side-by-side comparison with any other watches?
  14. Breitling

    Buy at a decent price second hand and you'll never lose much. Have you looked at Chrono24? https://www.chrono24.co.uk/search/index.htm?countryIds=UK&dosearch=true&maxAgeInDays=0&pageSize=60&priceTo=-1&query=breitling+a13340&redirectToSearchIndex=true&sortorder=1
  15. Here's my Enicar: I do like the Chris Ward design. If only it had a different name on the dial
