  1. 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".
  2. TGI Friday watches...

    I'm doing a baked bean comparison test tomorrow. But which watch should I wear?
  3. 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.
  4. What about this watches?

    It's a cheap knock-off of a Chanel. What more do you need to know
  5. I'd buy a Precista: PRS-3, £340: PRS-82, £425
  6. 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!
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. Here's my Enicar: I do like the Chris Ward design. If only it had a different name on the dial
  10. Dive watch under £1000

    @longplay Good call on the PRS-3! I've got one and it's an utter bargain for the price. While we're at Timefactors, there's this beast for £875 too:
  11. Anyone who bothers to take notice of any of my threads may know that I'm a massive fan of Titoni watches - I've always loved the designs and been enamoured with the fact that they are probably the last of the true family owned Swiss watchmakers and not part of some faceless corporate giant. I think I've got around 20 of them now and am always on the look out for more. EBay has always been extremely ropey when it comes to Titoni watches - the vast majority (no exaggeration here!) of the newer models for sale there are fake and I've been caught out myself on a couple of occasions - luckily I got my money back both times. I now consider myself a bit of a Titoni fake guru and don't intend to be fleeced again. I was therefore very surprised to see a few models from an Italian seller at incredibly low prices. £250 for a brand new watch with an RRP of nearly £1K looked very suspicious indeed - in for a penny though and I bought one. Lo and behold it was genuine. So, like you do, I bought another. I can only assume these were unpopular models (I wouldn't have chosen them over other models personally) that failed to shift so Titoni punted them out of the back door. Here's the eBay links: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=b_line55cc&item=142624096946&_osacat=0&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR5.TRC1.A0.H0.Xtitoni.TRS0&_nkw=titoni&_sacat=0 This is a bold (and probably biased!) statement but I honestly believe that there is no better brand new watch in the world right now for this kind of money. Grab a bargain before they all disappear. You won't regret it at all. Here's my little beauties: And just for the hell of it, here's a few of my other Titionis:
  12. Bargain time - Titoni

    I ordered the 2 watches separately (couple of weeks in between purchases) and both arrived without any duty to pay.
  13. Bargain time - Titoni

    My mistake - the seller is in Switzerland, not Italy
  14. Bargain time - Titoni

    The bracelet is solid link with friction pins so should be easy to adjust. I had no problems anyway! Definite redial and wrong crown. I'd stay away personally. Looking at the rest of the seller's stock there seems to be a whole host of franken/fakes/redials going on - some of the Fortis and Oris on his page are an absolute joke!
  15. Bargain time - Titoni

    It's certainly an "under the radar" brand in the UK with no ADs whatsoever. They have always been big in the far east though - 80% of Titonis are sold there. The logo is a plum blossom which is supposed to symbolise lots of nice things in China. These are the latest COSC figures I could find - Titoni is right up there ahead of brands such as TAG, Rado and Bremont.
  16. Dive watch under £1000

    Titoni Seascoper
  17. Bargain time - Titoni

    I'd certainly use him again. Really friendly chap who is quick to answer questions.
  18. Goldsmith discount on a Rollie?

    You don't come here to be informed. You come here to spout your own bollocks opinions and to hell with anyone who disagrees with you. I look forward to your next condescending reply complete with worthless psychobabble but personally, I'm ending my part in this conversation right here. Toodle pip.
  19. Goldsmith discount on a Rollie?

    Weapons grade bell end.
  20. Goldsmith discount on a Rollie?

    I can't be arsed to argue. Thanks for the lesson in what the first "R" stands for in RRP. Have you ever wondered why so many people here dislike you? Try toning down the patronising attitude once in a while.
  21. Phobos wave master

    Never heard of them so I did a quick google. They certainly look good value - I look forward to your own review! Did you order direct from China or elsewhere?
  22. Goldsmith discount on a Rollie?

    "Some dealers price above RRP" was your quote. What happened in the past is irrelevant to now - it just doesn't happen any more with ADs.
  23. Goldsmith discount on a Rollie?

    Assuming you're not including grey dealers and pre-owned watches, I don't think that's true at all.
  24. Bremont doing well!

    I'll use this thread as an excuse to post my Bremont I never was a fan until I actually bought one!
  25. Great watch! Nice! Keep it up! Spamtastic!
