    Auctions! A seller's market?

    Yes totally agree , I do try and attend viewing days but work commitments usually dictate that I can only attend on the day but when we do attend viewing days my wife and I usually have a few hours browsing and catching up with friends and acquaintances then have a light pub lunch which in my opinion makes a very pleasant morning !

    Auctions! A seller's market?

    I have bought and sold on Ebay and it pretty much is what it is , however buying from auction can be a great experience , specialist auctions be it watches or architectural salvage are getting pretty expensive not including postage / courier costs if the Auction house is miles away . General sales at Auction can turn up some real gems if you are prepared to do your homework and think on your feet a little , but it is easy to get your fingers burnt sometimes as well !! . Its just my opinion that Auctions are not doom and gloom and can be an interesting and profitable place . Just my opinion

    Hi from Kent

    Hi and welcome to the forum nice part of the country Kent , i have spent some time in the Whitstable , Herne bay area over the years , is this your part of Kent ? Into most clock / watch related items mainly 1950s through to modern stuff , have a soft spot for old industrial clocks / time recorders etc , but i guess everyone has a weakness eh

    WEC Silverstone 6hr Race (yesterday.....)

    I have been to this event in several times in different guises and think it is probably a good taster for the famous Le mans 24 hour . It does probably lack some atmosphere and in my opinion was better when it was held in September , but thats just my opinion . I have also been to Le mans several time starting in the early 1990s and apart from the cars it is obviously chalk and cheese . Perhaps its me getting a little older but motorsport in general seems to have got a bit sterile , so perhaps this applies to the Silverstone 6hrs . Going off on a slight tangent the Silverstone classic is a fantastic weekend if you like a blend of vintage / historic and modern

    Will it be another Omega?

    A bit off the cuff but have you considered a Rado ? something 1960s or 1970s it ticks the box being Swiss and the quality in my opinion is on par with Omega . I had a Rado New Green Horse some time ago and regret selling it . Just a thought
