My favorite, and I bought it from a US collector many years ago who was needing money to do up his oldsmobile classic car
    $35 + in 1888 would have been a proper luxury.

    Respect, Barry. That's a very nice thing. What type of strap is on it and what colour is the face? Some pics of the watch would be good, as there are various different types of ROs

    I have a Rolex Submariner which I bought in 1970 for the princely sum of £84. I couldn't afford the model with date as that was £96. It now needs a full service which is likely to cost £500 or so. It now resides in my sock drawer.

    I also have an Oris along similar lines to the Submariner but with a date. Around 6 months after I bought this it was running slow, so Oris rebuilt it and it now runs very well, losing just one second/day. A beautiful thing with a crystal back, so you can see the mech.

    The submariner would be well worth servicing, that's a whole lot of a watch for £500.
