    No pocket watches in your collection to go in the waistcoat Roy? I always like a pocket watch with a waistcoat.

    I’ve been collecting and trading vintage watches for years Grant they are an appreciating asset and don’t take up much house room , I see you have quite a collection and a broad taste much like me , Daily watch is a good old Casio G Shock which is fits in well with my Space watch collection

    Used to browse the Navitimers in the expensive watch shops quite regularly when I got my first proper job. Never did buy one in the end. How old is this one?

    Never really considered a pocket watch, first time I've worn a waistcoat in living memory so maybe not, was good to get dressed up though, thanks.

    I've always thought of the vintage watch market as a bit of a minefield but then I don't know enough about the subject, would be interested to see more of your collection.
