    Affordable watches
    First off I'd like for this thread to be a fun thread... so please keep it light hearted. Please don't flame people for posting unobtainable watches be it financial or otherwise. Please post pictures (lets try not to do them in ultra high def as loading is a pain sometimes). The goal is to...
  2. Orient Mecha-Trenics

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    Howdy folks, I'm selling my incredibly rare and amazingly gorgeous Orient Mecha-Trenics. It took me years to find it, and I've only ever seen 1 white dial for sale since, so I'd guess that maybe 2 come up for sale per decade or so. Originally sold only in Japan, they came out around 2004...
  3. The Seiko SARB063 Alpinist

    Public Forum
    Is $1300 USD too much for a SARB063 Seiko Alpinist? How much is TOO much for this watch? Thanks, and I should mention that this watch is Brand New, needs no servicing, and is unsized. -Bezel(er)

    After buying and selling many, many watches, I've realized my absolute favourite types of watches. Anything within these categories, I will be super interested in: 1.) A thick round case, classically designed GMT world timer with an exibition caseback and onion crown and complicated looking...
  6. Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonphase 311.33.44.32.01.001 Aventurine Watch

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    Well yes this I consider a catch and release. Unfortanately too large for the wrist, and looking to roll this to the next grail! It is absolutely stunning and quite rare.

  10. Grail on wrist!

    Public Forum
    Well, I often see these grail postings but never thought I'd be posting one. Since I started looking at watches more carefully a decade ago I set myself a €1000 limit for any given watch and listed any above that as grails. But I had recently decided that I wanted to switch from a few watches...
  11. If you could only have one watch, what would it be?

    Public Forum
    I know this question has been asked before but I really want to know and I'll compile some graphs if there are enough and consistent answers. After going through some four dozen watches, I ended up with an Apple Watch for a few months. While it was great I came back to mechanical watches pretty...

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    FS: Seiko Marine Master MM300 SBDX001 Does this watch really need much of an introduction? I s’pose I’d better, just in case you’ve been living in a cave… and not the spelunking type! This is Seiko’s answer to the Swiss manufacturer’s dive watches. The Rolex Submariner, the Omega Planet Ocean...

  20. Finally Owning Your "Grail" Watch

    Public Forum
    For those of you fortunate enough to finally own your grail watch, what happened afterwards? Did you set your sights on another "grail"? Also, if any of you sold off most of your collection to finally obtain your grail, did you just end up purchasing more pieces to fill your collection again?
