We all love a discount, especially when it’s one dedicated specifically to Watchuseek members and readers (and that’s exactly what we have here). After some deliberation with the team at Bob’s Watches—one of the biggest players in the pre-owned watch space—we’re happy to announce the arrival of a dedicated Watchuseek capsule collection on their site, with a dedicated 5% discount (applied in the shopping cart) for any shopper that lands on the page from this page or the posts in our social channels.
Historically the California-based online watch retail powerhouse has been known for its significant dealings in pre-owned Rolex watches, however this capsule collection dives into their lesser known offerings from an assortment of brands. You’ll find everything here from the latest Omega Seamaster 300, to a Tudor Heritage Chronograph, to a healthy sampling of Oris watches that are on offer in basically as-new condition in many cases. We’ve thoughtfully gone through the inventory at Bob’s, and specifically selected pieces that we personally find interesting and/or that we think our readers might find interesting themselves. For the next month or so, we will occasionally update the collection with new pieces.
As the weeks go on we will be highlighting a series of different watches from the collection, but for the time being, here are a handful of highlights.
ORIS DIVERS SIXTY-FIVE
A watch that clearly needs no introduction here, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five ticks a ton of boxes when it comes to vintager-styled dive watches. In this configuration you’re looking at the larger 42mm casing, faux-age lumed indices and hands, and a riveted link bracelet. Priced at $1,325.25 after discount, the piece is in as-new condition , complete with box, papers, hang tag, and all.
TUDOR HERITAGE CHRONOGRAPH
While everyone keeps clambering over the 50 shades of Black Bay that keep flooding the watch world, the Tudor Heritage Chrono maintains its place in the Tudor collection. Sure, it doesn’t run the same in-house caliber (the Breitling-based MT5813), but it’s still a very sharp and well executed reissue from the brand, at a reasonable price of entry on the secondary market. This particular black dialed example has a few scuffs and scratches on its bracelet, and is priced at $2,750.25.
OMEGA SEAMASTER 42MM
In 2018 Omega once again overhauled the classic Seamaster, bringing to the table a larger 42mm case as well as a bold new interpretation of its much loved wave dial. With these new models the dial design took on a more three dimensional aesthetic, using a ceramic dial plate with its wave ridges laser engraved into its surface (you’ll note the Zr02 inscription at the center of its dial). Having previously owned the classic Bond Seamaster reference 2531.80, the increased case size is entirely welcome. It remains quite comfortable on the wrist, and gives the watch a touch more substance than the previous variant without being oversized.
