    At first the 63133 bracelet was marked with this code on the clasp leaf, but later versions had it only on the end-links. It may be coincidence, but the change seemed to happen when...

    The price trend of vintage Rolex may sometimes jump up above...

    Buyer's commission is 20% plus VAT so the purchaser will not pay the hammer price of £175,000 but at least £217,000.

    He sold the two companies 535 watches and wasn't even registered for VAT. Come again ?

    A pair of Countdown driving gloves and a love letter from Stephen Fry for the welcome use of that adverb!

    I suppose more important would be that I forbid anyone from doing this with a "buy-back" store. The lack of regulatory and legislative protections in place for them put their clients in a much worse...

    There are people who, when going on holiday or simply not wearing a valuable watch for whatever reason, will put them into a respectable pawnbroker for a loan of perhaps £100. This will usually then...

    It could indeed. Military issue 5512s fit into two small number ranges. My own is fitted with a Burford dial, as would have been most of these and the contemporary A/6538s in service at the time.
