Any muppet can of course ask whatever they like. It takes just one clown for the price to be set Laughing

Worth reading the item description (the edited part) as I was about to report the listing for misrepresentation.

Greece 2004 Range Rover HSE 4.4 V8 Java Black

New Rolex / Tudor watch releases at Watches and Wonders today...

Left hand Rolex GMT is by far the most unexpected release since I've been watching these things. Not my cup of tea but definitely someone else's.

Tudor Black Bay Professional looks great and might as well be my next piece from the Shield. Need to try it on though. I guess this will be some time in late April / early May... So I'll be back with my impressions.

Got this bad boy almost two weeks ago...The newest Submariner delivers contemporary material and craftsmanship matched with previous (5 digit) generation proportions. They seem to have "corrected" the boxier case by slimming down the lugs. It's astonishingly comfortable to wear.



Got a bit carried away with the purchase and never asked to try on the new Black Bay Pro. Will do on my next visit and report back.

I’ve not been a fan of the submariner because of those lugs, that looks a lot better.

Just reading the latest octane watch section, have you seen the new Omega/Swatch moon watch collaboration??

C.£250 for something which looks like an Omega moon watch with an ETA quartz movement. I can’t decide whether it’s fantastic or if it damages the Omega brand!! L322 TD6 2003

When I first got a 6 digit GMT back in 2014, I was not too happy with the "supercase" design although the watch did fit fantastically. It was a departure from the case shape of the Rolex I originally aspired to own but second hand wasn't (and still isn't) an option for me. So I learned to live with it and didn't bother me as much. But I can clearly consider this a contributing factor for not buying a 11 series Submariner myself. Now that the new case design is out, I can tell you I genuinely dislike the 11 series lugs and the 12 series GMT could also benefit from some trimming down.

I've been watching the frenzy about the MoonSwatch since before its release. I think it's a clever move. It makes the design accessible to the wider public. Whoever wants the "real deal" will certainly still buy it as well.

Grand Seiko

For years I've been intimidated by the 44mm GS case thus missing out on a great GMT offering from Japan. It wears surpsingly well I've found out... Spring drive is insanely accurate, too. Has only gained a fraction of a second or thereabouts over last week Bow down

Here is my Submariner from 1996. I bought it for £3680 and would guess it is currently worth at least £7000. I wear it every day and it has not missed a beat. 😊

Deciding what to sell will depend on what you want to do. Some context would be helpful, sir Thumbs Up

Then perhaps letting go of both would be advisable. Less is more imho. Besides, you can always replace the Seamaster.

Nice 245 Thumbs Up

My favourite GS, nearly bought one before lockdown, local dealer had one in the window, naively thought it'd still be there when we came out...ha no chance.

Pictures don't do the dial justice, depending on the light it looks black, chocolate and sometimes burgundy. Don't think they've made a nicer GMT since.

Are you looking for a dress watch?

Most of the Rolex's are going up in size, the original Datejust feels tiny at 36mm especially when you take off your PO Chrono.

Thank you!

It really is a thing of beauty Thumbs Up And yes, it's a chameleon, not only the dial but the bezel as well changes colour from black to grey and even green!

Been more of a Rolex / Tudor kind of person but I think GS is that much more glorious on the wrist, not to mention the tech.

A Sub 41 would be a great option, if you don't mind the huge clasp. The DJ41 series wear considerably larger than the 36, which imo look smallish with a dark dial.
