This week's drop in detail

This week we have another fully stacked line up. From a pair of Daytona to a Tudor Black Bay and a classic Cartier Tank Solo, these latest additions to our collection won’t stick around long. So, whether you’re looking for a special gift or to add to your growing watch collection, look no further!

At 26mm, this Oyster Perpetual is delicate and elegant in equal measure. Add a lesser seen porcelain white dial with diamond markers and you have something extra special yet still versatile.  

This 2010 Daytona with black dial is as trialled and tested as any watch design gets. Rock solid and perfect from Antibes to Antarctica, you just can’t go wrong.  

Two-tone is most definitely back in. And this 2014 reference nails it. From the champagne dial to the perfectly sharp case, this is a daily beater and investment proposition. 

One of the last 16570 Rolex Explorer II produced, this 'M' series example was equipped with the new generation of 3186 calibre movements when it left the factory. Since then it has remained in super condition and comes complete with its original Rolex box. Interest in these transitional models is beginning to really grow.

The Aquaracer family may well be the most underrated sports watch line up in all of horology. At 44mm in steel, with a unique angular case and waved dial (in green here) - there is an awful lot to love for just over £2k. 

When it was launched in the early 1980s, the ref. 69173 represented the next generation of the Rolex Lady-Datejust. Sized at the familiar 26mm diameter, it carried on the legacy of women's focused Datejust watches that began over twenty-five years prior, serving as the classic entry-point for countless looking to add a Rolex to their jewellery box. 

At its core, the 69173 is the quintessential Lady-Datejust: highly versatile in its looks, available in a variety of colorways and dial styles, and plainly ready for anything.

Tudor has been having some fun of late. The Black Bay sees its design language come from the Marine Nationale divers for the French Navy with its instantly recognisable Snowflake hands. For under £2.5k, you will be hard pushed to find more watches for the money. 

As pure as a Tank comes, this Solo on steel bracelet from 2017 doesn't scream, it whispers.  

The most collectable watches tend to be those that are discontinued or initially unloved. This Breitling Premier for Bentley was much loved while in service, but since the departure of the partnership has become more and more interesting.
