Our Latest Watches For sale -  Including the Grana Dirty Dozen!

It's another mixed bag of vintage, modern and military watches for you this week, starting off with a rather beautiful Vacheron and Constantin Deck watch from the 1940s, unusual in that it is gold plated on top of its solid silver case, we have never seen this before so it seems it has been modified in a rather opulent manner.

It is sold with an extract from a sales ledger which denotes it as finding its first home aboard HMS Colombo during the Second World War, you can read more about its colourful life by clicking the link below - its interesting stuff!

Staying with the military theme, we of course have some fantastic examples from the Dirty Dozen watch family including an Omega, and a Vertex, both in superb original condition.

Speaking of the Dirty Dozen Collection, we have also managed to acquire the most elusive of them all, the illustrious Grana, of which only around 1000 to 1500 were ever produced, making them extremely rare and very much sought after. That is the rarity and collectibility of these watches, we do not offer them for sale directly through our website, instead, we encourage you to get in touch so we can discuss a potential purchase. You will not want to miss this one - it is exquisite. 

If you have an interest in the Grana or any of the Dirty Dozen military watches, do get in touch as we often have pieces in stock that are not necessarily listed on the website. 

If your taste is more contemporary then you may love the German-made Nomos Orion 387 with its elegant lugs and flowing lines, or maybe the robust Breitling Navitmer B01 Chrono 43 is more your thing. Both are sold with box and papers and in wonderful condition. Check out this collection of our recent acquisitions, as always we are here to help so get in touch if anything piques your interest. 

Ps. Don't forget to change your watch this weekend, if you are in the UK. 
The clocks go back on 30 October at 2 am.
