    Omph!
    Makes me want to cry remembering the prices I used to see in that window
    I remember seeing a Greenlander for 900 10 years ago, now 5995!!!!!
    Omega 56s were 300
    On the plus side I paid 50 for my Eterna WWW about 5 years ago.

    Finding 'em is not that difficult, finding enough readies is the problem.

    The price seems ridiculous especially the Longines, at least 200%.

    When you see the prices of military and a lot of vintage watches are going for today makes you glad you got into this hobby early. Think I added two wristwatches a civilian and a issued one that was a project still in progress and two Military clocks a deck clock and chronometer military clocks are some times under the radar so a good way to get a military timepiece fix this year only buy deals and there harder to find I am defiantly slowing down. Now does that shop if you show up in person do they let you haggle on price or are they firm ?

    Austin kaye haggle????
    No chance...
    It's in prime position on the Strand
    They might knock 50 quid off but that will be you lot. They are relying on a rich tourist walking past and taking a fancy to something in their very nice window display. It is one of the best watch shops in London for window shopping.
