Think I'll go with:

Afternoon: Breitling Bentley Flying B No3 (used to turn my nose up at these but the smaller non chrono like this is actually very nice)


Evening: Datejust Steel & White Gold


Sunday: Heuer Monaco


As you should already know, myself and some other members of the watchfinder team will be there with a cabinet full of watches for you to look at and we will of course to be on hand to answer any watch-related questions you might have.

In addition if there is anything in particular that you would like to see then drop me a PM. Never understood the value of a steel Daytona and fancy seeing one? Always lusted after a Patek but never got your hands on one? Now's your chance!

Okay; I'm in.

Used and abuse Tissot for the afternoon.
Probably the Cartier for the evening.

Please could you not bring any 16600 Sea Dwellers, and particularly not if accompanied by enticing details of your finance terms. Thanks.

I shall make sure we don't do that, sounds like it would be way to dangerous for you smile
And yes, the finance terms are extremely tempting!

I was nearly able to join this thread. Will wear the trusty Seamaster but saw a nice Rolex Tudor (1940's vintage) secondhand at the weekend and came within a whisker of buying it - just wasn't 100% on it. No paperwork and no box.

Omega Speedmaster BroadArrow 1957 for the afternoon, and I'm thinking Weingarten of London for the evening (classic 60s look, small face, think it will work with black tie)

I absolutely will NOT be looking at the watches that WF are bringing. Oh no. Definitely not.

(IWC Portugese by any chance? I've longed to try one on for a while now)

Seeing as you are so sure that you won't be perusing our selection, it won't make any difference if there is a stunning Portuguese 7 day automatic knocking around then smile

Yes, about a third of our selection will be ladies watches.
