    TK Maxx purchase 👍

    Hi all

    I had to go to a small complex with a TK Maxx in today, I usually have a look at the watches on offer and found this Hamilton Pilot Pioneer at reduced price of £268, I tried resisting buying it and went home but the lovely dial wouldn't get out of my mind so I had to go back and buy it!









    With a supposed power reserve of 80 hours, The H80 485 835 should run much longer than any of my current mechanical watches, I feel I got a bargain!!

    Not seen the outer minute marker reversed like that before on anything. Any specific reason or functional benefit?

    Online can be better, some good stuff occasionally. I went in the Windsor tkmaxx last autumn expecting it to be better than the Llantrisant one, it was, but not by much.

    Good spot - it's entirely random what you find in TK Maxx - I have an Oris big crown I got for a similar price.

    And on eBay already. Not saying it's this one as this usually happens when some cheapish one's show up on TKM

    Nothing wrong with flipping a watch bought off TK Maxx on eBay anyway, no moral qualms there IMO, nowt to do with TZUK.

    Not yours of course, just saying more generally.

    I was sure it wasn't you John. I don't think I've ever seen you sell a watch!

    I can't recall ever selling a watch Neil, I've traded a few with a friend on Facey but stopped doing that as I missed them when they had gone!

    My local one had a display case full of Mondaine watches for £49 each for a while. Always worth a look.
