      RWG NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!   04/09/17

      RWG Needs Your Support - upgrade to a VIP/Supporter membership! If you find your time here to be useful and (we hope) entertaining, we encourage you to become a VIP/Supporter member. This only costs £21 (a little under $30 USD dependent on exchange rates) per annum and all proceeds go towards our hosting costs and making RWG the best watch board around. By becoming a supporter you will also gain a number of benefits including: 1. If you subscribe during one of our VIP upgrade competitions (announced above the shoutybox on the board index page and also found in our competitions subforum), then you could win a nice watch (usually a high-quality rep). We run these competitions approximately monthly, so keep your eyes open for the next one. You will also get access to our free birthday VIP giveaways - you could win a strap, watch tools or even a watch (there have been some amazing prizes including gen Longines, Raymond Weil, Hamilton and Victorinox watches, along with various high-end reps!) 2. Early access to the Member Sales area (see the sales area for rules) and the ability to bump your sale to the top of the board periodically. 3. Access to the supporters-only section of the board. 4. Increased PM storage 5. The ability to change your displayed user name (once in a 90-day period). 6. Occasional discounts from some of our dealers (keep an eye on their subforums for special offers). PLEASE PM Greg_r to upgrade to VIP

  1. A Mystery to make us curious?

    have a read through this... https://www.calibre11.com/tag-heuer-1000/ I hope you get it, at a hundred bucks it's worth a look at anyway!
  2. A Mystery to make us curious?

    They did make some of the Heuer 1000 with the monin hands. Fully legit (quartz) ones seem to run between £400-£1200 depending on who has it and condition. I've looked for one for a while, and while I don't think there are good reps there are definitely some real ones that have been massively polished and had parts changed.
  3. It Finally Happened

    Time to change your member name... Nice collection, the dial on the brass Helson is really cool.
  4. Yorkshire spring GTG 2018

    Go on then
  5. Gen Rolex opportunity

    If you're buying it to flip it your client might not be best pleased...if he gets pissed you end up losing more than you made on the watch. Buy what you like if you want to wear it - forget about the investment part. edit - the 116500 is not really an investment, you could sell it now and make money. In a years time there will be a newer model with more significant updates, and the waiting list will be for that, not the older one. It will hold it's value, but there are better ways to make money unless you're in it for the long haul.
  6. Which Seiko should I buy in Tokyo?

    I struggled to find places to buy anything worthwhile. The obvious places (big stores/AD's) are more expensive and you can buy the same online. The second hand market is massive and widespread so I reckon you need to have a really good idea of where you are going before you go. JDM models are fairly widely available outside of Japan too. What's your budget?
  7. Great work there mate! - nice pics and write up too.

    Very nice..! Enjoy it lots!
  9. Cheers for the pics! MB&F are just brilliantly mad. The Ressence no crown design is nuts too.
  10. Genuine Wrist Check - November 2017

    Cheers It's a class watch, so comfortable and light for it's size.
  11. If they'll do you a deal on an MB&F Legacy machine call me! I'll come down and pay! Look forward to the pics - If you can get some stuff from Ressence that would be awesome! Thinking about a Type3 for my next big spend.
