    You’ve lost me buddy........no way would I exchange contracts and be happy with a prolonged delay.

    Just sell the house, get the deal done, and rent for a few months. Alternatively, don’t market...

    Most of my work is split between vintage Omegas and more modern ETA based stuff. The screw slots on the vintage Omegas are much finer than the ETAs, so I use new blades on them. when the blades wear...

    If I was the buyer I wouldn’t be happy with a delayed completion date of 4/5 months. To my mind you’re either selling something or you’re not, if someone wants a rapid completion I would do...

    A bit late if you’ve ordered Bergeon, I would've ordered the cheaper sets available from Gleaves or Cousins that are made in France. Whatever you buy, you end up replacing blades because they chip...

    +1, communicate with your buyer! I`ve just agreed to buy a house locally, there's no estate agent involved and I`m buying it without selling mine first. I`ve established a good rapport with the...

    It's all well and good buying everything on line, but does anyone stop to think how the goods arrive on your doorstep? All the delivery vans flying around is contributing to the worsening congestion...

    Can`t make a constructive comment/input without more information. I'm guessing this is a cosmetic issue that's been rectified as far as is practicable?

    If the watch is still under warranty it needs to go to Rolex service centre, or possibly a Rolex accredited independent. Not sure about that, but if there’s an accredited indy close by it’s worth...

    I can see a future where shops don’t exist, banks don’t exist, pubs don’t exist........no- one will ever need to go out again except for going to work! Won’t it be fun.

    I see this as a bad move, a step in the wrong direction. There’s no scope to haggle or negotiate; anyone buying an Omega with an option of bracelet or strap from a store currently has the chance to...

    There may be a hallmark inside the caseback, and under the lugs. It's possible the watch is rolled gold so there won't be any hallmarks. Usually a rolled gold case will have some stampings between...

    I`d estimate the age as early 50s. If it's solid gold there should be a hallmark, that would help to date it.

    Platinum has a much higher density than palladium (21.4 vs 12.0) so for a similar size of ring you’re buying significantly more metal. Didn’t know that, I assumed they’d be similar.

    Even taking account of precious metal prices, the contribution towards the total cost of a watch is still fairly low as a percentage.

    Palladium has always been expensive, but fortunately it can be...

    Just dug one of my watches out last week, it hasn't been used for at least 9 months, wound it by hand, wore it approx 1 hr, checked the amplitude and it was where I’d expect it to be for this watch...

    I visited in July for the first and last time. Horrible place.

    2500D has obvious appeal, the co- axial escapement is basically the same as the 8500, but I wouldn’t rule out a 2500C if the watch is in really good condition with recent Omega service. I’m not a fan...

    If that watch could talk it would say ‘please polish my case with a rouge cloth’.........9ct gold can become very tarnished and a wipe with a rouge cloth works wonders.

    Some watches were cased locally in the 50s and 60s and some cases were specific to certain markets. I didn't know south America was a market where this happened.

    Had a quick glance at this site, the watches look expensive to me but that applies to most dealers.
