These three are the holy trinity as watch collectors would attest, Overseas is well known and appreciated by many Jords

They all yours mate? Look stunning. That royal oak isn't a 15400, 15500 or a 15202, but still looks around 40mm, what reference is it? 5402 from the 70s?

They are not mine. I have the Overseas and the Nautilus but not the Royal Oak.. The only AP I want is 26585CE.OO.1225CE.01 but it is rarer than a unicorn

Opinions on Black Bay steel? On sale for £1850 at EJ which seems cheaper than used

Have they actually got a store with one in stock?

Anyone waiting for a bb38 in the southeast my local goldsmiths has one in store. Same shop I got mine, no wait.. Don't know if there is still a list but seems like this store is firing them out.

Like that, wish I could get on with no date watches. Is there a scratch on the bezel at 12 or just a hair/dust?

Very cool. Love the simplicity of it. I have a BB dark coming to EJ near me on Wednesday to check out.

I think it's just a smudge or the light reflecting.

Cheers all.

The strap seems a bit weird though. Is it possible I've got a ladies strap (if such a thing exists)? The AD said he'd order a bigger size from Tudor.


Edit: I just think the strap is pretty small. I'll remove the 2nd loop and it should be ok.

Do you reckon the dark is worth the extra over the steel? I think the only difference is the coating and date / no date.

Also, does anyone know if the Quidco 5% works on EJ gift voucher purchases?

I like the DLC and the red combo to be honest and at 2250 it's a good price for a weekend / holiday beater IMHO - I'm not looking at the steel price Laughing out loud

It is absolutley stunning, being ceramic its very wearable and would pass under most people radar, you dont fancy a normal RO openwork? Absolute dream watch for me, no one does openwork like AP imo.

Do you follow conkers1971? or seen his video on revolution watch? He has an unbelievable collection.
