Mainly datejusts but a few sports models in there.

Any idea why they lost their account?

Anyone confirm this is legit? Seems too good to be true?

love the nautilus, definitely going to be my next watch in a few years.

Banks Lyon are 100% legit, no idea why they lost their ad status though. Probably discounting or something.

Black bays and Pelagos are some of the best watch buys going atm. If someone thinks it's a Rolex rip then their opinion on watches should be irrelevant.

Apart from the Patek above this thread should get renamed Which Rolex?

Love the Black Bay and the Pelagos - as Mrtyn says they are bargains IMHO.

The only shit thing about the black bays is the hour hand, why cant it just be a straight normal hour marker.

Ref 5053 was inherited from my dad, whereas Nautilus is my own purchase. I think I am done with PP now.

air-king discontinued from the rolex line-up this year, the ref might stay but won't say air-king on the dial

It's a tribute to various old models. It is a love or hate thing though.

Want this mainly because its my year of birth, and has apparently just been serviced.
I'm assuming changing the crystal and I'll be good to go?

Based in London but item location Stroud?
Zero feedback.
Can get crystal replaced for free but they didn't bother.

It doesn't look like a scam exactly but I'd be very wary.

Again, as Mrtyn says - it's a nod to the Tudor Submariner that had the 'snowflake' hour hand (which is one of the reasons that many collectors particularly like that model).
