    I think you need to be a bit more specific.

    Sports/dress?
    Gold/steel/titanium?
    Bracelet/leather?
    Automatic/quartz?
    Analogue/digital/combo?

    etc.

    One person's 'nice watch' is another person's abomination.

    Fair comment, I am pretty open to what people have available.

    As an example I had my eye on the Tag Heuer Carrera Day Date Calibre 16 that sold on this site yesterday.

    I have a Longines Heritage Diver 1967 if of any interest to you?

    Would want £1,295 for it.........(it comes in a stupidly large box!).

    Hi Simon,
    I have a stunning TAG Heuer CARRERA Calibre 16 Chronograph (see pic). RRP is £3,550 and it's a current model (ref CV201AJ.BA0727). New watch with box and papers. Looking for £2,300 delivered which is the cheapest anywhere. Not listed elsewhere for now so you have first option.

    Lovely watch that may be of interest.
    A few questions please.

    Original receipt included?
    All paperwork included?
    How old?
    Daily wearer?
    Condition of watch?

    A few pics would be great.

    Thanks,

    Simon.

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for the messsge. How many watches do you own!! Do you have your eye on something new as you seem to be having a new year clear out?
    Beautiful watch but £2300 I cannot do I am afraid. Being honest if I was looking at £2K I would be more interested in your Tudor.

    Cheers,

    Simon.

    New Years resolution to reduce the collection significantly. It's got a bit silly :)

    Its in a very nice condition.

    I dont have the receipt..(out of warranty anyway!).

    It comes double boxed, warranty card, booklet and all links.
    Some pics below, take a little earlier on my mobile.
    Ive not worn it as a "daily wearer", judging by its condition..neither did the former owner!


    Thanks.

    pics below.


    (the wrist shot pic. wasnt taken today!).

    Thanks for the pics and info provided.
    Let me think it over.

    I don’t want to make you an offer that is too low but my offer would be based on it can be purchased new for £1620 and I will be the 3rd owner and it has no warranty.

    Should you wish to keep and not offer for sale then not a problem.

    Best regards,

    Simon.

    ok now worries.....Ive not seen them for sale for that price though!

    I also have an Eterna Super Kontiki, or a Tag Heuer Aquaracer if of any interest to you?

    The Eterna would be £735, or the Aquaracer would be £1,000

    Thanks for looking!

    I am not ruling out the Longines, just having a think.
    Pic attached of the £1620 price.

    Not wanting you to spend all day but model numbers and pics of the Eterna and Tag would be very much appreciated. Any papers/warranty etc on them?

    Best regards,

    Simon.

    Thats a damn good price for that!

    From a value for money point of view? Personally..Id either go for the brand new one........or....my Eterna......or...there is a lovely Longines Legend Diver for sale....(in another thread)...Id buy that (but I already have one!) and put it on either a mesh strap (which is what I did!) or else get a leather or sail cloth strap for it...as personally I dont like rubber straps!

    Not trying to "do myself"" out of a sale here , but thats what Id do!

    Thanks again for taking the time to reply, very much appreciated.

    Can you confirm the model number on the Eterna please and if not too much trouble also on the Tag please.

    I do really like the Longines....any movement on your asking price?

    Regards,

    Simon.

    No worries Simon!
    The Tag Heuer is WAY2012.BA0927
    The Eterna Kontiki is 1273.41

    The Aquaracer is from October 2017.

    Th Eterna isnt dated, Im pretty sure though, its a little bit newer than the Aquaracer.

    I can take any other pics you may need of any of the watches. Just let me know.

    As for the Longines.....I think its a good price as it is......(well! Im not going to say otherwisw am I?!).......

    You can always make an offer though...and I can say yes or no!

    Im not sure if the "size"! of the box comes out in the photos.....they are ridiculously big!!

    I reckon it would cost £30 odd to post it!

    Many thanks.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you have a more complete part number please on the Eterna, they all seem to start 1273.41
    Is the face on the Tag blue or black?

    Best regards,

    Simon.

    The Eterna is

    Cheers!

    Thanks again for the reply.

    Your Eterna looks like part number 1273.41.40.1718 according to the Eterna website and not the limited edition part number you are quoting?

    Weighing up which one I prefer out of the 3 you have offered.

    Regards,

    Simon.

    I’ve decided to sell my 2yr old Oris Aquis Date (Black dial) model 01 733 7653 4154-07 8 26 01PEB, which comes with both the stainless steel bracelet and the rubber strap.
    I haven’t had chance to take any pics yet so here’s a link to the manufactures website.

    Oris Aquis Date

    Looking for £950

    Cheers
