  • I think that hublot is not bad. What are the numerals though?

  • Looks like hebrew numerals to me.

  • i think this is an appalling attempt to jump on the Hublot rubber strap esque band wagon

  • Eastern Arabic

  • also ridiculous imo
    Richard Mille RM range

    a jeweler pal had one for sale, and on the edges on the casing, the black finsih had slightly worn, terrible
    some golfer had one in titanium, think it came to near on half a million
    how any rational person can justify that with so much poverty in the world is beyond what my chimp like mind can comprehend

  • A quick bit of advice from a watch forum creates some hope that the movement could be contemporary of the late 1890s or early 1900s.

    Hallmarks are Swiss.

    Those Hallmarks only started to be used around 1880 and by 1910 keywind only was pretty much dead technology, so that puts some very simple bounds on it. Whilst it's not impossible that someone recased the movement at a later date I can't see why anyone would have wanted to, so I'd go with it being the original case and movement. Given this design of cylinder escapement movement was out of fashion by 1880 I would suggest 1880 - 1900.

    David Boettcher suggests that the three bears was typically reserved for cases intended for the UK, and if this was the case then the lack of UK hallmarks would certainly cut it off at 1907.

  • With arabic numericals, very nice. Guess we know who they were targeting with this model

  • Does anyone have any experience with Festina watches? I know they are not as expensive as the watches being mentioned on this thread but its what I can afford. In particular the F6819/1 model which looks superb imo.

  • don't they sponsor a cycling team?

  • Yes they sponsor a lot of cycling events.

  • Willy Voet will deliver it to you.

    Talk shite about watches or GTFO>>>>

    Honestly, thank you. Very useful.

    In other news I'm getting married as well as buying a house so my watch buying days are definitely going to be on hold for a while.

  • Let's not forget the Pre-Daytona, which would be my choice.

    I'd give my left knacker to own that

    Needs oyster starp though

  • Na. Better as is. (dial indication ties in with strap)

  • Hold much would one of those cunts set me back?

  • But it's a two bob starp you'd get from the old fella doing key cuttings outside the tube station
    It's a sports watch, get a sports starp on it and give it the love it deserves....not some £20 dress starp effort

  • Hold much would one of those cunts set me back?

    If you have to ask then you can't afford it

    £15k +

  • See, look how hot that looks with the proper starp!

    #sexwee

  • Does look good and will not wear out. Still.

  • That's worth a third of what Seamus Coleman cost us

    #footballthread

  • The bracelet on that pre-Daytona is much later than the watch.

    *nerd alert.

  • All Daytonas look best with a strap.
