    I'm a compulsive omni-collector, which sounds so much better than hoarder. Joking aside, and not including horology, I collect the following: old books, antique silver and post-war designer silver,...

    Just misread a thread title on SC. I thought it read: OT - Some cats for sale.

    It depends. Modern Rolex, yes. But only because their modern watches are watches that hold no appeal to me. Consequentially I don't particularly desire or wish to own them. Vintage Rolex, however, is...

    It's a perfectly delightful machine. But if I had that money to spare and had to spend it on a Bentley, I'd go for a '53 R-Type Continental in black, like this one:

    Not a lot of people know that although the first human to break the sound barrier was Chuck Yeager, a fox called Basil Brush did it first. Boom boom.

    Joking aside, what a legend. RIP.

    I agree with Wallasey in that it was probably originally a man's watch, from 1920 give or take a few years. But I'm not convinced that it was ever a pocket watch. Here's a very similar one to yours I...

    I like those a lot, particularly the one with the black dial on the khaki strap.

    I could see myself living anywhere on the coast, if the house was right. Recently I've found myself coveting various properties from an Italianate terraced mansion in Waterloo in Merseyside, late...

    It doesn't matter now, as the lume is no longer luminous, so it's not quite as noticeable. And it's a further connection with your grandfather.

    A lovely story, and it's great the watch has been fixed. I think the hands are unlikely to be original - the numerals look like they're luminous, albeit highly decayed. It therefore seems an odd...

    Since Fairlop is out of bounds, let's get re-established with some solid safety play. With due consideration, I therefore play Bond Street as my next move.

    I presume you mean the Chiron rather than Veyron. Either way I can't help feeling Bugatti will consider it as "challenge accepted". The last time an upstart company beat Bugatti it didn't take them...

    I can't make it out clearly, but that looks like a Vincenti stamp on the movement (the circular mark below the bell). A nice looking clock. Probably dates to around 1875 in date, give or take 10...

    That W looks like the trade mark for the Wadsworth case company, an American watch case manufacturer. So it's a pretty safe bet that it's legitimate, and it's 14 karat gold. Vintage watches would...

    A nice thing. Not as fashionable as it was, however it's better made and will last longer than your typical modern rubbish. Speaking to L&T about it is sensible, and I'd mention the Dunrobin Castle...

    It's very clumsy - the numeral font isn't quite right, the proportion of the hands is all wrong, the case is a bloated parody, and the less said about the quality the better. I can see what they're...
