It’s been my first ever serious watch purchase so I’m no position to write a review really that stretches beyond phrases like: “I think it’s really pretty”
Originally I was looking for a Speedmaster as I fell in love with the model from the first time I saw it.
Walking passed a shop in Manchester however, on my birthday of all days, I noticed this Seamaster in the window. Price was a bit over budget but I reckoned it couldn’t hurt to have a closer look. So I did, tried it on, absolutely loved it and I made him an offer he could have easily refused as I was lowballing it. He initially told me it didn’t come with box and papers which in the end was incorrect as he simply misplaced them. So here I am, having bought myself a lovely birthday present for a price that I was quite chuffed with. I’ve had it since September, I’d still be interested in getting a Speedy simply because I want one but by no means will it replace the Seamaster. I’ve had 4 or 5 people asking about the watch whilst wearing it which is a nice compliment to get really. So far, very happy with the purchase and it’s a great looking watch both on the bracelet and on leather.
