Dezeen are closing their watch store and everything is reduced. I suspect little of interest to people on here, but a few maybe interested in the Eone watches and similar

My local AD had one in the window a month ago and now it's gone. Snooze you lose…

You might even get a discount at the Rolex boutique on Bond street. It all depends on their targets and whether they need to make a sale that day.

Absolutely no chance at Bond street on steel.

Anyone spotted the 114060 (no date) subs in suburban AD or they still a bit hard to come by?

Edit - found one and purchased.

The Missus wants a watch for her B-Day, I have a budget of a GIB, can i get anything decent for that kind of wedge new or 2nd hand? Would love a Rolex, Cartier, Omega, but not sure if my budget will stretch to those brands?

Time for another watch methinks. Haven't bought one since January.

Any recommendations for another day-to-day one?

Already have GMT Master II, Hulk Sub and Speedmaster on rotation.

It's all perspective old boy. I like them.

Budget, I don't know.. maybe up to £10k… just need something new to look at.

Tried on a new white face Daytona the other day with the ceramic bezel, it's a really lovely piece but not worth the 5-6k extra over retail they are asking on secondary market. £9100 I'd take it tho for sure, sadly was politely informed wait was circa 7/8 years at present.
