    I've had about 60 odd watches pass through my hands since about 2010. I like tool/field/pilot/dive watches, and have never spent more that 2.3k on a watch. I rarely dress up, don't work in an office, and am most found outdoors, so dress watches are not for me. :)
    This is my current crop, and the 1981 Seiko quartz diver 7548-7000 (on left) is probably my favourite at the minute. Although they all get rotated on a weekly basis. I hate chronograph watches, and love nothing more than an appealing simple dial layout.

    Can anyone recommend a reputable place in Australia to handle selling a vintage Submariner? I wouldn't have a clue how to price a watch like that.

    I guess dealer prices will always be high as they have to add GST on their commission and being a store there would be a higher trust level with buyers.

    I can help mate I have a database of buyers and watchmakers that can authenticate things. If I'm correct in you have one you want to sell?

    Agree Chrono is great for a general idea but it is a worldwide sit so a relex selling well in USA might not be here and vice versa.
    The watch scanner feature is sooooo good tho from a simple screenshot!

    Thanks for the reply, I have had a 5513 that I got new in 1983, I don't wear it so much now. It runs fine and has never been opened or serviced. I haven't put it under water in 20 years, I used to dive with it but since then I treat it as a non-waterproof watch as I don't know how often the seals should be replaced. It's been sitting in a deposit box for the last 14 months.

    I love watches, but I'd rather say I'm a necklace fetish.
