    Hi,

    I'm after a nice watch, just wondering if anyone had anything sitting in a drawer somewhere unused etc.?

    Would prefer a chronograph, and an automatic but might look at others. Would prefer something along the lines of Breitling, Omega, Bvlgari etc but also not wanting to spend much more than very low four figures, less if possible!

    If you have anything you feel might be of interest let me know

    Thanks

    Hi there I've a Breitling navitimer world white dial about 4 years old fully boxed papers etc
    Has proper brown breitling leather strap but this is getting quite worn and could do with new one
    Before putting pics in etc id be looking at about £2500
    So probably more than you're looking to pay.

    Superfrank, can I ask why your other thread was archived and why this deal with addaman fell through?

    Yes sure, as he mentioned on the other thread he has offered it on there were 2 small marks that he hadn't mentioned in my thread which I thought were quite pertinent to the deal so I reneged and he accepted.

    I hope you find that acceptable?

    I've got a Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 6, with a silver/white dial on a steel bracelet. It was bought by me new 3 years ago and has just been serviced by Tag Heuer at a cost of £385 :)eek:).

    Because I'm on crutches my jeweller is sending it back to me for delivery on Friday so I'm happy to upload pics then if you're interested but the price might be out of your bracket - I'd be looking at £2000 inc fully insured RMSD.

    It's a beautiful watch and obviously I've got all papers, boxes and spare links.

    No problem. It looks like I might be starting a new For Sale thread in the next few days then. Good luck with the hunt.

    Hi superfrank, my Omega Seamaster Chrono is available at the moment. Selling as I have seen a Speedmaster display back that I want instead but the guy only wants a cash sale.

    The watch has no box and papers (I bought it used like that) but is absolutely genuine. I can open the back and take a picture of the movement if you want but you would then have to get it pressure tested if you intend to use it in the water. The lack of papers and boxes affected my purchase price and I would obviously be passing that saving onto you.

    Current sales prices for these seem to range from £1425 to £1600 used and the lower end is the same as mine, no box and papers. I could do mine for £1400. I'd also consider partial trades if that helps? I currently need a new PC monitor and am looking for an iPhone 4S or 5 on O2 or unlocked. ;)

    Cheers, Rob.

    I have an Oakley Crankcase with the stainless steel bracelet. It was given to me as a present but I've never worn it, so its brand new and in perfect condition. The RRP is £475 so I'd be looking for £300.

    Hi guys,

    I'm not interested in the Oakley but thanks and the Omega sounds like something I'd be interested in but I wouldn't be willing to go for it with no box and papers etc.

    Sorry but thanks also.

    I have had it up for sale on TZUK a watch forum, but things are a little slow on there this is the description i posted there, i would link you to the sales post but you would need to be a member with 250 posts


    Very comfortable tool watch 44mm dia but light as it is titanium on a Breitling pro 1 rubber

    Watch dates from 2002 and I have had it for a year, I have not serviced it but it runs well so probably has been serviced before i got it.

    Condition is good there are a few marks on the back of the watch see photo the other than wear the is no and major dings or scrapes to the case or crystal.

    There is a minor inperfection visable to the crystal but only under a x10 loupe

    I have the warrantee card, COSC cert and instructions, outer cardboard box a little tatty and the standard bakelite box with the broken hinge and the "R" is missing its inlay




    If you check chrono 24 and ebay you'll find the same watch on sale for a fair bit more

    Thanks
