Depends on your taste and budget. I'm holding out for a bargain used reversible hammy (2nd iteration)... Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II https://www.hamiltonwatch.com/en-gb/h32866781-jazzmaster-face-2-face-ii-auto-chrono.html
Yeah, I wouldn't pay this for a hammy tbh. Best of just sticking to their classic lines.
I didn’t mean I expect it to increase in value. I was just answering to why there may be an appeal for this model. We all know price investments are never a guarantee, especially with watches. This is £400+ off of the general price, so a deal for anyone looking to purchase one - but the cold voters are out in force lol.
I doubt it - all the watch companies turn out so many limited editions they devalue the concept - half of my collection are "limited edition" - makes no difference to the value.
I own 2 Hamilton watches but this isn't worth that price.

I agree. My wrists aren't massive but 37mm is too small. 38 is the smallest I go
to be fair to Rado though., they don't gouge on their bracelets - they are reasonably priced. If this was a 40 I'd bite, but for most blokes, 37 is going to look tiny on the wrist.I tried the BB58 yesterday and was shocked how small it looked on.
This is now 1309. EVEN better deal
Lug to lug is just over 43mm (y) 🏻

Excellent watch. I have the 41mm one. The 45mm one I had was way too big! And I'm a big guy, it was really uncomfortable
Yeah it really is beautiful, my friends dad, who has since died, got me into Oris as their movement is fantastic. I always wanted one and I could finally afford the one I have and I’m really pleased with it. I definitely want a ProPilot but that is a 40th Birthday present to myself in a few years :)
Made a fine choice with an Oris sir (y)
Fabulous! It’s not a brand I have, but I too have been lead astray by @Kratos69 .....

Got one at this price back in May 2020. Good but if you want a triathlon watch
Fingers crossed it doesnt play up on you, these things are built to last after all! The sapphire screen difference in low light against the pro is what is playing on my mind, there seems to be a blue tint on the pro which could get annoying. In the sun both seem fine, in fact the sapphire version might be a little duller. I sincerely hope they dont release a Fenix 7 early next year, that will really annoy me
I’m using for mtb dynamics, be great! 10hrs gps use on normal Fenix might sound alright but I bet its a pain so thought this was a bargain tbh is it lasts way longer! It’s a bit of a punt the refurb only 30 day return but if it’s okay by day 29 I’d have to be unlucky for it to die a death......
Cheers will take a look, really want the sapphire one but the extra £200 is just silly
Ebay on 20% offer, someone has a brand new for £450 without the offer even
Grandson wanted a Pac-Man watch and this is what google came back with:S
Timex Pac Man out next month for about 60 quid..
Clearly overpriced, but some fool with more money than sense will buy it because it looks 'quirky'.
Maybe, just maybe if I had a general hate for high end watches I’d quit looking at them and complaining about them. I don’t think they’ll miss you seen as the top 8 companies clocked around 15 billion Swiss francs worth of sales of brand new watches in 2019 alone. (1CHF is roughly $1) What a joyful life you must lead to be so invested in something you hate.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience! I see why you're not impressed with Ball. Mechanical watches are tricky things and there will always be the odd bad one but you expect good customer service when something that serious happens.
Maybe I'm less picky. I have a lot of love for my Invicta,although maybe it's because they have a good name.
CW watches are real quality. Most people don't like then because they are called "Christopher Ward" - I'm the same. They should have called themselves "Trident" or something, because they use that symbol shape on their seconds hands.
They seem like real watch enthusiasts, if like to give them a try or Christopher Ward
They are impressive watches for the price. The EO-1 is a 37 mm watch (I like small watches). It has applied indices and is sort of an homage of rolex explorer. It runs a eta 2824-2 (undecorated) but is nicely put together. All this was for £339 (with a discount code). Some of there other watches look nifty as well. They took a seagull ST19 handwind mech and actually designed a nice watch that doesn't look like the seagull 1963 for £299. They are definitely worth a look if you like cheap auto/handwind. Straps aren't bad either.

Seiko Watch 5 Sports SRPD53K1 £212 + other watches @ C W Sellors£212£25116% off
C W Sellors As title, 15% off most watches (non sale items) Seems a fair price for this one HTH
There's 4 in stock, New from Rubicon Watches at the moment for just over £180 (added this yesterday, though to be fair it does get lost when I go into list-mania mode) - https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/40747069
He didn't mention automatics, hence my reply. Orient are owned by Seiko, yes. I'm not sure why that's relevant? They are run as a separate company and do not have the common QC issues that Seiko do. Swatch own Omega, Tissot, Hamilton, Blancpain and quite a few others. None of them make Swatch branded watches. Citizen may be best at Eco-Drive, but does that mean their other watches are no good? Not sure what you were getting at there.
Too much for a 5 model, especially when the Padi was on this site for 10 more less than a month ago and similar 5 models with a different bezel for 150
Citizen Eco Drive. If you're a fan Seiko, good 4 u mate (y) . When you pay more than 200£ for a watch you want to be a nice looking one too
I am so glad someone appreciated it. (highfive)

Yikes that's a long time. They came up with the £28 discount so I'm assuming they worked out a percentage. The electronic gift certificate was to give to the person on their birthday because the watch hadn't arrive. It was rubbish and didn't even tell them which Garmin they were getting. Here's one of the responses I got from CW Sellors when I complained via email... I understand this has come as a massive inconvenience but delivery at the earliest would be early next week now. The only thing I can do as an apology is get an electronic gift certificate sent over for you so the recipient knows it's on its way and offer a partial refund of £28.66 to take your discount down even further for you.
Thanks for that, really appreciate it. Mine took 1.5 weeks to come! Is there a reason yours was £28? As in was it a percentage of the purchase?
Via their live chat and email. I had a better response via email. Good luck!
Thanks, I'll do that. How did you complain?
ohh right nice one :)

Prob just me looks like a ladies watch. Maybe used to the chunkier ones.
lazyfatboy: The capabilities of a watch are not measured in the number of jewels the movement has. No, no, it really isn't. Synthetic rubies are worthless, the number of jewels is irrelevant to the value. However, a higher number of jewels generally correlates with the movement complexity, and that has an obvious impact on price. The value comes from the complexity, engineering, and brand, not the number of jewels.
Same here. I prefer 25 jewels myself, but heat added regardless.
.....but the value is.

Yeah I heard a while back regarding some of the Seiko 5's that they had different movements, but never verified that. And sorry, its not Korea, it's Malaysia or more specifically outside Japan
Never heard it said there's different movements (?) but this subject crops up all the time and nobody really seems to know for definite. What you can say for sure is that the j models are slightly more desirable, resale-wise.
Yes, it is now.
lol, not really, I am always on a look out for watch deals and have been benefited before by various deals posted on hotukdeals.com, thought this my turn to share for the community.
