Rolex discovered that if they used a rectangular case rather than round they could incorporate a larger mainspring and balance wheel and place them at opposite ends, this enabled the watch to have more momentum and run for longer periods of time without winding as well as making it the most accurate wristwatch of that period.

  • Description

    Rolex discovered that if they used a rectangular case rather than round they could incorporate a larger mainspring and balance wheel and place them at opposite ends, this enabled the watch to have more momentum and run for longer periods of time without winding as well as making it the most accurate wristwatch of that period. Prince cases came in two guises, the standard straight sided and the more expensive flared ''Brancard''. Ironically the steel versions were more costly than the silver cased ones due to the difficulty of working with the material thus fewer examples were produced and are now highly desired by collectors for this reason. Dress watches though still seriously undervalued are undergoing somewhat of a resurgence at the moment and it is only a matter of time before their prices increase dramatically.

  • Why buy from us

    1st & foremost, we understand & take responsibility for the fact that both tastes & horological fashions are ever changing.

    We do this by being willing to take back past pieces we've sold either in the form of part exchanges or cash when needed.

    With clients rarely loosing more than 15-20% in this process & even benefitting from large profits on occasion, we believe this is the way to build trust with the public. For example. If going 'off piste' & not sticking to in vogue trendy watches such as Batman's, we believe you would incur the same monetary loss spending £20,000 with us on your various purchases as you would spending £8500 at new RRP.

    The very fact that we've never advertised in over 30 years shows we have a long standing loyal customer base. Please see testimonials for more on this.
