Oh no, I’ve done it again! I have gone a little crazy these past few weeks and I now have to move some “inventory” to make room for the new additions to the ‘team’. The first watch up for sale is this very nice looking IWC Portuguese model no 371401. It is about 3 years old with full box, papers, manual and even a brand new leather strap so that you can put the original strap aside and not destroy it. Absolutely nothing wrong with this watch and it comes with a full 1 year store warranty. Stainless steel case Read More
I just read off a news feed that a watch worn by a British prisoner of war involved in “The Great Escape”, the audacious World War II breakout immortalised by Hollywood, is being auctioned in England next month. The stainless steel Rolex has a guide price of between £15,000 and £25,000, (17,500-30,000 euros, $24,000-$40,000) at the November 6 sale at Bourne End Auction Rooms, west of London. It belonged to Royal Air Force (RAF) pilot Gerald Imeson, who was imprisoned at the Stalag Luft III camp on the German-Polish border after his plane was shot down returning from a bombing Read More
I was in New York last week on holiday and by coincidence Alex sent me a link to Hodinkee, a watch website that is apparently one of the most widely read wristwatch publications in the world. It featured a video on Grahame Fowler and his 13 Milsubs. As luck would have it, we had a couple of hours available that very afternoon and we made the trek to visit Grahame’s shop in the West Village. Aside from offering for sale some pretty unique timepieces, Grahame Fowler is better known for the men’s clothing he produces and sells on a limited Read More
Heard about this shop years ago and had the chance to visit them when I was in Kuantan earlier this week. Met Michael and he was an excellent person to talk to. He took the time to show us the previously owned watches he had in stock and also the new watches on sale. Prices on the 2nd hand stuff was quite fair but unfortunately we could not close the deal on the Tissot Touch and Seiko F1 he had. Definitely worth visiting if you are ever in Kuantan.
My friend Keith sent me this link – http://www.watchismo.com/ A pretty large selection of some less popular brands with pretty funky designs. Have not bought anything off their site yet so if you have any feedback or experience dealing with them, please let us know. I have always liked to touch and feel a watch before buying it as no matter how good a watch looks, you should always see how comfortable you are wearing it and how it looks on you. I would definitely consider buying from them if it is a model I am familiar with and their prices Read More
The wife suggested we start this blog a couple of years ago and I just realised that we are now 2 years old! Thanks for reading this blog and PLEASE KEEP THOSE QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS COMING!

Have these watches with the Masonic Square & Compass for sale at $45.00 They have a Japan QUARTZ movement and have a nice bold case with an understated Square & Compass on a black dial. Watch enthusiasts will know that a rectangular (or a ‘square’) watch is much more complicated to manufacture. It may not be obvious, but machining, polishing – and even cutting of metal or crystal – is more difficult to do on an object which is not round. It is also true that our perception of what a watch should look like is hard-wired in our brain. Instinctively, we Read More
