Terrible photos. Better ones here
I moved house about 3 years back and had only been in the place for a few days and the house was burgled...... the safe had not been fitted and as a result I had the following stolen
White Gold Rolex Daytona
Tiffany (misc watch)
1 x Tag Chronograph (similar to warren_s5's black faced Tag)
All I was left with was my old Rolex Bi Metal Oyster
Keep the watch Porn coming..... it's all I have left to keeping going!
Here's my daily watch - Omega seamaster
Bought this as a big Schuey fan, never been out of the box except to photo, never worn, and not even started - omega speedmaster (moon watch)
I am working my way through collecting the Casio Edifice Infinity Red Bull series.
Only got the 200 and the 534 at the moment but the missus has got me the 537 for my birthday.
Love the Tag Monaco, classic timepiece . I have a Rolex Submariner 16610, bought it in 2010, it's one of last of this model as it was replaced by the ceramic bezel model that year, I tried the ceramic but didn't like the larger / chunkier case. Mine has a random serial number rather than the traditional Rolex format with a leading letter and then numbers, which was only used for a few months, apparently watches with this serial format are quite sought after by collectors.
Others in my small collection are an Oris big crown pointer date, lovely watch, and a beautiful old Tudor Prince Oyster Chronograph (Pre Tiger Woods edition). I also still have my very first watch which was a Christmas present when I was perhaps aged five, it's a small Timex, with it's original leather strap, it still works and keeps good time but I rarely wind it these days.
Saving up now for a Comitti Navigator clock, don't know if I'll ever get there but that's the plan.
Iv got a few watches but these are my more expensive favourite 3. Would love a Tag Heuer or a Breitling but can't really afford one at the moment.
Ahh man... Why did I open this thread! Being Audi-Less at the mo (Saving for a house) I have a bit of spare cash!
Have an Omega Seamaster but everyday watch is a GMT Master II
I'm still quite new to the world of high end watches. This time last year, Mrs Grumpy Old bought me a TAG Heuer Formula One Grande Date., and I love it. It's also given me a taste for nice watches that I didn't have before. Right now, I have an opportunity to buy one of these.
If I buy it, it means no new TTRS Rotors for the car.
This is rare as rocking horse poo. I,ll never part with it
These are quite rare as well
And I took the opportunity and got it. It's a TAG Heuer Link Ayrton Senna, one of a run of 2004 watches, made in 2004 (although mine was first sold in 2005) to commemorate the tenth anniversary of his death.
Pics are a bit hurried, I'm afraid.
I've added to the collection over the past year and a half. In addition to the two TAG Heuers, I've acquired a couple of Omegas, firstly a Seamaster Planet Ocean and then, just yesterday, a Speedmaster Racing limited edition commemorating Michael Schumacher's first F1 title with Ferrari in 2000. 6000 were made, and mine is number 6000, which pleases me particularly. Aside from partnering the other Omega, I think it acts as a nice companion for the Ayrton Senna commemorative TAG. Here they all are together; i wish I could master the art of photographing watches properly.
Some great watches! Lovely things to have
Wow great thread updates Guys and loving the watches !!!!!
Looks like we've all been busy as I've updated my collection too with the breitling I was after and then finally acquired the pam ....
Heres mine,a chanel j12 marine
I'm still sporting an Omega Speedmaster that I purchased back in 2007. I won it from playing Poker believe it or not!
Jojo, that's sweet.
I've got a fair few watches, favourite being my Omega Seamaster (will post a pic later on..)
After a Rolex currently but probably should buy a house being only 23 lol..
Here is somthing a bit different for you on the watch front.....this is my every day wear German made Damasko DA46 - tough as old boots with hardened steel case, fully mechanical and automatic...had it for over 2.5 years now and still accurate to 4-5 seconds a day
Fine-looking timepiece, and as you say, something out of the ordinary.
Thanks, understated quality ,which is how I see Audi in relation to BMW and Merc
The whole collection...
Favourite.. Love this watch, David Coulthard TW Steel with a signed box and papers.
I also like having somewhere nice to store them, have these Dulwich Designs boxes..
1x 10 Watch & Cufflinks Box
1x 3 Watch & Cufflinks Box
I'd be interested how you all store yours!
Have a SevenFriday M1-01 arriving tomorrow!
And after selling my Apple Watch to a colleague I want to buy the Tag Heuer Connected as a replacement... Didn't like the Apple, watch was just too small (42mm)
Gorgeous. Mine are stored in the box you seen in post 53 above. It's from Aspinal of London - click here.
This is mine. Only just started being interested in watches. Must be an age thing ;0)
Thanks! Very nice box that.
Can someone tell me where the best place is to get a watch valued and maybe sold?
I have a stainless steel TAG I inherited about 8 years ago my dad left me. I am not into watches and it just sits in the cupboard in its box. I think when my dad brought it he paid about £1500? I took it to a place called watch doctor in Tring and they thought it was about about £800 a couple years ago but they didn't buy them.
Otherwise I guess when I pop my clogs my nephew can have it.
What watch is it? I may be interested...
You could try Austin Kaye, in the Strand. Click here.
Not seeing an empty bay in your box, there @Steve!. So it's either sell one or get another box.
Think I may have too! The 2 in the top right (Rolex & Michael Kors) are my girlfriends so I'll just knock them out haha!
SevenFriday arrived this morning
I have idea on it. Ill post a couple pictures it later.
I'd rather invest the money in my house then have it sitting here
Found some old pictures on it.
Is it a good one?
There is a couple on eBay so you may be able to get a better idea of value, a few more on the American market.
Also just purchased a TAG Heuer Connected which I'm over the moon with
Iv got a few Citizen and G-Shock watches. Bought a nice box off eBay for them. Would love a Tag Heuer or a Omega to add to the collection.
I do have another Citizen watch on the way aswell which iv ordered off Amazon.
You can get a citizen one that powered by solar cant you? A colleague was showing me the other week, looked pretty cool.
Only Citizen I wouldn't mind owning is the Red Arrows edition with the little helmet etc.
Yes, all the Citizen watches I have are Eco drive so they are powered by light. Any kind of light so not just sun light. That's why I bought a box with a glass top and keep it on the window sill.
The Red Arrows one is nice. I would definitely recommend Citizen watches. For a decent one they are £200-500. I think they are worth it which is why iv got a few of them.
Never really been a big watch person myself although i do own 3....
A big clunky Timberland thing
Armani dress watch (bracellet not leather strap)
Citizen EcoDrive thing i got off inlaws for christmas.
Very rarely wear any of them
