2018 In Review

2018 Review



The year 2018 was another remarkable year in the world of watches with a big step up in prices and values. The Rolex bubble is perhaps the best place to start with some pretty questionable price demands. The new GMT that retails at £7,150 after a price increase in the later months. The used value which is between £14,000-£16,500 due to supply and demand has created chaos in the watch world and has caused many knock on price increases.


If you’re not able to get that GMT you might go for a Submariner which have also become more and more popular because more people are settling for less and creating a demand that’s a lot more than it was 1 year ago. A similar thing has happened with Tudor Submariners and pretty much most Sports watches that have a following.


Will we see this price heightened bubble pop? I guess we’ll see.



Omega have officially come out with their own fully in house movement! Finally!

The Omega Seamaster has been updated and slightly changed from the previous model with the main noticeable feature being the return of the wavy dial, which was welcomed by most Omega fans! With values always changing, the used market witnessed another slight rise in the Omega section with the Seamaster professionals and Speedmaster Reduced making a slight jump up in price.



Will the demand for Omega pick up and rise? We aren’t so sure.
