Couldn't get my mind off the preowned Grand Seiko GMT I saw last week and ended up pulling the trigger on Tuesday. Arrived this afternoon. I can't get over how impressive this is in person. It's just incredibly rich/vivid looking in person. Some quick and dirty iPhone pics below:

It's almost 44mm, but the lugs are short and curved, so it hugs my wrist very nicely.

And a quick 10 sec charge of the lume. Really love the sapphire bezel.

Any suggestions on where to list a Rolex Submariner (ceramic) for sale? I'm thinking Rolex forums and Timezone. Is there another place you guys recommend? Many thanks.

Those are the two best places I can think of. FYI it might be a little tough if you don't have a reputation, there.

Thanks a lot, I don't have a reputation on either but if those are the top sites I'll give it a shot along with local buy and sells like kijiji etc.

Watchuseek maybe.

Thanks for that - forgot about that one!

Thanks, I'm loving it. Even just driving around today I kept admiring how nice it looks especially when light hits it just right and the hands are that nice shade of blue.

I'd suggest Watchuseek. Rolexs seem to move pretty quick there from what I can tell.

Yeah, I recommended those forums to a friend who had a few watches to unload and he was virtually ignored (save for the lowballers), him being a brand new member offering some rather expensive pieces. But eventually he sold them to a collector in his area who'd seen them posted there.

I think reputation is less important if you have papers.

New member, please go easy! Thought i'd treat myself for my birthday / Christmas to this IWC...

 

I'll try and post pics later of my Breitlings. I have a Transocean, a Navitimer and a Bentley version.

Not on those sites.

I tend to go for Very Very uncomplicated dials, but I like that a lot. It's a limited edition IWC Portuguese Automatic Edition Laureus Sport for Good Foundation watch?

Tried on a friend's new PP 5146G. Pretty incredible in person, though I was egging him on to get a 5970.




Got a GMT Master 1675 by "accident." Threw in a low proxy bid in an auction and somehow won it. It's a 1971, all original, pretty near mint condition, original box but no papers. Seems like it was barely worn. I had always wanted a 1675 or 16750, and now after receiving it, I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I'll probably end up selling it though, if anyone's interested, to help fund future acquisitions.




1946 Longines chrono with the 13ZN movement, very good condition. Keeping this for the collection, but would probably entertain offers.
