    Iím still flirting with the idea of buying a Rolex OP 36, but not at list price or anywhere near, I donít want one that badly. If I find one Iíll sell my 2001 steel Datejust, a watch I like but...

    For a watch of that age Iíd definitely talk to a Rolex accredited indy such as Rocco at Watchworx (Bristol area) or Willian Rice (East Yorks). There are others, such as Duncan Potter (Genesis)....

    It would be a more sensible choice in some respects. If I wanted a Day-Date I`d look to spend a minimum of £11-£12K and find something as new as possible. Unlike other watches it's (almost) all about...

    Wear in the bracelet is a big problem with these and has a strong influence on value. Buying one with a poor bracelet, which could be scrapped for a significant sum, may be the the best way to buy at...

    Canít understand the love for scruffy old Speedmasters, I was amazed at the estimated value.

    Now the dust has settled, and I’ve sobered up after a couple of days of ‘serious socialising’, I can’t help thinking that expanding SL to 14 teams makes sense. The loop fixture situation is crap, we...

    Not sure about a Day-Date at your target price, you’ll struggle to find a good one. If you’re not bothered about the bracelet you might find something, but for me...

    Hi John. fixing yours earlier in the year rekindled my interest in finding another! Bracelet's a 1040 with 518 end pieces. Omega still sell some of the old bracelets, but the quality isn`t the same...

    Having spent so much time getting ‘up close’ with a watch I almost need to put it down and step away from it, then have another look and see it from a different perspective.

    It's a shame the parts situation is getting worse for vintage Omegas, Swatch group stopped supplying wholesalers from Dec 2014. Prices of new parts in original packaging are increasing, every time I...

    Unfortunately this problem is only obvious with the movement out of the watch. In this case, everything functioned OK and nothing alerted me to it.

    This degree of wear in other movements, such as...

    The dials on the quartz and auto are different, the date window is in a slightly different place and the printing is obviously different. Possibly they came from different suppliers?

    The only saving grace for me is that classic cars (aka 'Historic Vehicles') don`t have to pay road tax, so my 1970 MGB costs nothing to keep on the road (apart from classic insurance at around £160)....

    What about travel insurance? What happens if there are problems, the guy gets an infection, he needs treatment and he isn't well enough to travel home. He could well end up in deep shit.
