    Has anyone in London popped by to Harrods to take a look? I'm sure pricing must be at least analogous to their online store...

    By way of observation, (EDIT: As per posts below, it would appear they were just posting photos of interesting watches people wore to the event) I think one of their offerings is a recent eBay snag (see photos) which I saw but then pondered just a little too long over (wasn't sure about the date hand and red 12...).

    Cheers!

    Hmm, the Chronodato dial font (Angelus emblem doesn't seem right, cursive for Chronodato doesn't match other examples online) is highly suspect in my view! :cautious:

    Yes that Chronodato font bugged me too... And I wasn't sure about the Angelus logo.

    Looks way off, however I don't believe they ever indicated that this was one of their watches for sale. Could have been one of the patron's watches that they found interesting and took a picture of.

    Yeah, they were just posting photos of the watches that various people were wearing at the event.

    I popped along this evening. Nice to talk to the guys for a while. Small but interesting collection of pieces they had for sale with some obscure stuff as well as the obligatory vintage subs, daytonas etc. Prices were a bit punchy.

    The box and papers Zenith a386 was a lovely piece but north of GBP15k!

    In town this coming week. Tempted to visit. Don't need any more temptation though.
