Along with the recent introduction of the RM067-02, the original Off Shore made the biggest impact on me with regards to the sensations obtainable via horology. Back in 1993 when everything was sleek and elegant the launch of the ludicrously large ROO, much like the introduction of the Sex Pistols back in the 1970's just said "Fuck You here I am"! Not dissimilar to the Spinal Tap sketch revealing the secret to their loud music being an amplifier that went up to 11 rather than 10, AP recently took their original Off Shore and added a baguette sapphire and diamond bezel! Though this incredibly rare watch is sometimes seen in three dial variants, it was actually only launched in two. The standard old school dial version to me looks like someone just added a funky bezel to the watch whereas this variant whilst still retaining its old school dial tapestry also incorporates a two tone dial finish and Arabic numbers. The seemingly more prolific version with bigger dial tapestry and wider Arabic numbers was never originally intended for this model. AP do however offer them as a replacement for the more boring versions originally alluded to during servicing. Less than five were manufactured of this original incarnation.
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.

Like the reintroduction of the Mini motorcar over a decade ago, this reinterpretation of Big Pilot by IWC is better than the original. This 1st series Platinum example is of course the top of the top.
