Great find just ordered 4 for my kids
Looks nice, but snap case back, non-serviceable sistem51 variant movement, and fixed bezel made it a pass for me, plus gotta stop buying watches...paid £260 for their Visodate with eta 2824.
You need some help mate. She would batter you relentlessly with self absorbed anecdotes.
With you 100% there. That Villanelle accent makes me hot under the collar.
You see that little number 8 adjacent to the 3 o’clock position? I’ll you three guesses? ;)
I received an email at 20:52 to say mine had been despatched, I've probably got the one the've been playing football with in the warehouse and using as a doorstop.
1062.50 using CLD15LDB8K4F8
That is a nice looking watch.
Right you are. I am not usually a fan of date function, but that one is a fun variant I could go for.
Haven't been in a while but have never seen high end watches being stocked by them.
The pointer is the date function
Please post your hot deals for the new blue Black Bay 58 (y)
This is the number of Paul at Burrels 07882861392 who i dealt with, you might get through easier.
Fair enough, thanks. Same for me, I'd rather spend the extra and get it box fresh.
i was only interested in the strap sorry. IF they really had such a queue of people, maybe they've all gone? To be fair they responded to me within a couple of hours, and set up a payment online, but when they confirmed it was ex display, I didn't fancy the drive to check...
Try Google Chrome. Plus it doesn't ask for beer...
My German is very rusty, well all I ever learned to ask for was beer or a glass of coke, or a cheese burger. And that was living in Bielefeld for 2 years in the Army. Thought I'd learn more from the German Women, but they just wanted to improve their English too..

If it was watches only, I'd be skint in a few days/weeks.
I think you, Ezzer72, myself and others just need HotUK Watch Deals
Horses for courses but not to my taste. Mont Blanc have some stunning watches in their range though.
Gash tbh, but subjective I suppose. At least it's not four grand like they usually are.
They also have a deal on the Chrono version, which is also a good price £1825 https://www.goldsmiths.co.uk/Montblanc-TimeWalker-Chronograph-Automatic/p/17950107/
Heat for the price, I don't like this newer style of MontBlanc's Nothing against Montblanc, I have this one.(stock photo)
Seriously doubt? How would this be better then? You have just almost proved my point - brand ignorance. You assume it's better because it's more expensive and have prob seen adverts and endorsements for the brand.
I agree, if it had a different logo and you told me it was worth £50 I'd believe you.
Yeah that looks ok actually. Doesn’t look small.
You get 14 days to try on and return. It looks much bigger than a Rolex 36mm in real life. Looks more like the 39mm equivalents.
Nice. No date function and suave looks is a FIRE! from me (y)
I really didn't want this thread to turn into a technical watch thread as there are watch forums out there which have gone round the mill on this subject. But since you've asked then I will elaborate a little. Tudor remain quite tight lipped about their modifications but what I've learnt is that they brought in a bespoke balance cock with a Triovis fine adjustment mechanism instead of the ETA eccentric screw. This is a more compact mechanism with a finer adjustment on the regulator index and is favoured by the likes of Nomos, Girard-Perregaux and Jaeger LeCoultre. This means the way the watch is regulated is different to the standard ETA one. It has replaced the Incabloc shock absorber in the ETA mechanism with a Kif one which has been used by Rolex before being replaced by their own in-house design. There are arguments that the Kif shock absorber is a much more resilient part compared to the Incabloc but Ive not seen anything definitive. This is only a couple of the changes made and there may be more but it is probable that due to the changes made means that the movements have to be adjusted in-house to take these into account these new parts. I would not class the Tudor as an in-house movement but neither is it an off the shelf ETA movement. The next point being the term "luxury" which is a very subjective issue. You may argue about a £500 watch versus a £2000 but why not argue a £200 watch versus a £500? Why do people spend nearly a £1000 on a mobile phone when a £200 one will do the same job? Why buy a Bentley compared to a Ford, after all they both get you from A to B in the same way? This is where elements of rarity, exclusivity and marketing come into play (which companies like Apple and Rolex are a master at playing). Luxury does not necessarily mean better (which I can cite various expensive purchases which have failed me while much cheaper variants are still going). It is the worth the individual person places on these items which give them the 'special' and 'feel good' factor that the image carries. Far from it for me to tell anyone on how to spend their money whether I think its a value-for-money purchase or not. As the adage says, 'You pays your money and you take your choice'. :)
You said more than that which was wrong, that tissot regulate them to 80 hrs which is not true, they simply use a different movement with 80hr power reserve. Nothing to do with tissot making their own changes.
Ah I get you, I thought he was saying the Tudor is an ETA with no mods after I’d posted all the mods (lol)
They probably deleted it as it was advertising a fake. Not your intention of course, but folk may see that then go buy it. Fakes aren't allowed on HUKD, hence the delete. That's my guess anyway. I think he was saying his ETA in the Hamilton was bland without modifications, and still achieving less than a second a day variation.
Indeed, most are own by the same group, posted as soon as the price dropped.
Same price almost everywhere, in case you prefer your dealer.
I've said that so many times. Probably safer though, it stops me spending money I haven't got!!
Nice looking watch.
I wouldn't get too excited - I paid just over £5,000 on this deal a couple of weeks ago, it's now over £8,000; https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/omega-seamaster-planet-ocean-mens-black-rubber-strap-watch-auto-15-33-tcb-5096-at-ernest-jones-3473363
WOOF! Bargain (y)
Also picked that up for £140 last year from Ernest Jones.
My bad - £127 @swayndo :)
@swayndo good find but they have come up cheaper than £200 in the past, you have to use a discount code, think I got mine for £120.
Not too disappointed- it’s not the real deal :D
Considering the price of some watches on Goldsmiths, their product photos are terrible.
Posted many times at that price Surprised they're legally allowed to call it a sale item ..
That escalated quickly
Quick maths you @absolutebeginner ! You know what they say.. in for a penny.. (y)
Almost 50% more...
Nice watch but prefer this one for a bit more ;)
Tissot and automatic under £300? Hot!
Nice watches. That white faced one would look amazing on Fridays. Rest of the week though....
Delivery is 4-6weeks?!?!?
(lol) (lol) (lol) What she doesnt know . . . . (angel) ;)
Palladium is far more expensive than both platinum and gold
I think the price for this is fair but this type of metal will certainly show scratches far more obviously than other materials such as gold/silver/platinum
(lol) If I lost mine my wife would expect my finger to still be in it
Was about to pounce even though I need a new bathroom before I need a new watch. Showing OOS. Someone up there is looking out for me. 🙏🏼
Bought 3 for each hand great watch
You're obviously in the wrong place
Yes will probably slow me down for a while, but once I get used to the extra weight, I should be back on track
I took it in for a service after about 6 years of ownership, found out it was £500 so decided not to bother. I've had it for 11 years now, it's not been serviced. I'm not sure exactly what the service does for the watch, mine seems as good as new without it.
caged bearings for the bike
Each to their own but I like them. Excellent price. Sadly no longer in stock.
These would perfectly match any umbro tracksuit. Especially if it says "cheap" across the rear.
Imagine trying to read the time off that (horror)
Amazingly horrific unless you like looking at 'Armani Exchange' rather then reading the time
