    Expecting the answer to be "nothing" but anyone know if an early 1980s gold Rotary is likely to be worth anything ?

    Depends what it is really mate - you might be surprised; watches with a bit of age either sell really well or hopelessly badly depending. If it's mechanical, serviceable / running alright and in half decent nick then ~£50-£300 range I'd suspect.

    Iíve just been researching the history of my Grandads watch. Jewellers didnít even recognise the brand.

    Itís a Paul Buhre Swiss Made 31 Jewel movement. It is in need of a refurb, but I have managed to check the serial number and it was made between 1907 and 1908.

    I donít care about the value because of the history and it is precious to me. But I have a watch that is over 100 years old.

    Course Iíll never wear it because it isnít a looker, and it needs an original strap (my Dads family never appreciated the watches they had - they put these awful stretchy metal bands on them - dad put one on his Omega seamaster)

    40mm - it wears quite small actually, despite being 'classically proportioned' for a dive watch. I did expect a bit more heft.

    38mm is about my limit for size. Most of my watches are 36mm. But 40mm is not too bad, I could probably manage that size. Definitely not kitchen wall clock territory. Very nice watch!

    Haha, sweet. It's ok mate, I got a decent discount code for signing up to their mailshots so it didn't come in much over that

    I have also been on a bit of a spree

    Laco Type B Flieger:



    Steeldive 1975 'Tuna':



    Never a fan of divers generally nor bracelets but the SD is really impressing me.

    I also have another flieger on the way
