I seen my 1st Fisker Karma in Bahrain. I had read a lot about the company and the financial hurdles it was trying to over come. I had originally dismissed it as an ugly wannabe.

How wrong I was, what a beautiful car with an incredible presence, its huge with a solar panel for a roof, the interior is quite superb. It was a bold statement of intent. I Loved it.

I will never complain about the price of old firm season tickets again

Watch of the week … The Pilots watch from the Edinburgh Watch Company

November 18, 2016

The favourite watch of pilots and dedicated aeronautical enthusiasts since 1952, the Navitimer 01 combines a technical and original design with Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01 – a true gem of reliability and performance. This legendary model is distinguished by its steel case and its black dial with a red seconds hands, silver chronograph counters and applied hour-markers or numerals. Its bidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel ensures smooth and easy handling of the famous circular aviation slide rule
EWC have just taken this exceptional one owner example into stock from 2012 that is presented on a polished stainless steel bracelet along with an additional leather strap giving you a choice of look and feel.
With a saving of nearly £3000 off RRP it is a great example of how buying a pre-owned watch makes financial sense. If you like this or perhaps are considering a gift for Christmas please take a look at the Edinburgh Watch Company website or call Jonathan directly on 07765 896 896

Porsche 911 Turbo (Flachbau)

We sold this actual car a year ago for £90K and yesterday at Silverstone auctions it sold for over £211K. Happy days for our client. Its the 2nd Turbo he has purchased from Border Reivers & both have been sold for doubled the purchase price. This one sold with a phone call without actually being advertised so if your interested in a particular car let us know as more than half our cars are sold before reaching our website.

” Here to brighten up your autumn day we have a beautiful September 2016 unworn Rolex Submariner that is still in it’s protective seals and with a 5 year warranty too! The Submariner needs no introduction as it has for over 60 years been “the” sports Rolex tool watch designed to be passed from generation to generation. Made from 904L grade stainless steel and 18ct solid yellow gold this is a Rolex masterpiece that has been enhanced through time and is a great watch as a long term wearable investment. What is so special about this is the Sunburst blue dial. When the sunlight reflects off the dial it really is eye catching. So that’s the aesthetics covered now let’s discuss more about the movement. It has the Rolex 3135 automatic chronometer movement which is highly accurate and has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours on a full charge. As a watch designed for the sea it is fully waterproof to 300m and equally will grace your wrist whether for sporting adventures, a day in the office or perhaps under the cuff of your favourite dinner shirt. The Gridlock case is another feat of engineering allowing you to finely adjust the bracelet without removing links which is great for holidays where temperature are just a little warmer than here in Scotland!
You can see more information on this and a great saving off RRP at www.edinburghwatchcompany.co.uk or just by calling Jonathan directly on 07765 896 896

Testimonial

angle2 EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLAND Porsche 356 A Bj. 1959 - sehr guter Zustand, für Rennen aufgebaut! Anzeige gefunden, sofort in das Auto verliebt - Anbieter Border Reivers?? Wo- Schottland?? Also, einen Flug gebucht nach Edinburgh und kurzer Hand auf die Insel geflogen. Ganz idyllisch ein Stück hinter Glasgow an einem See gelegen hat sich die Firma "Border Reivers" versteckt und auf hochwertige Autos spezialisiert. Der Inhaber - Tom Fitzsimmons ist mehr als freundlich uns hilfsbereit und versucht seinen Kunden fast jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen, hat uns spät nachts noch zum Essen ausgeführt und kurz vor Mitternacht nach zurück nach Glasgow gefahren. Wir konnten in einer blitzsauberen Halle das Objekt der Begierde in aller Ruhe inspizieren (und alle anderen Auto's auch noch) und durften danach eine Probefahrt durch die Highlands absolvieren. Sämtliche Sonderwünsche und Umbauten wurden durch Border Reivers noch erledigt und gegen Entgelt wurde der Wagen noch bis vor die Haustüre in Deutschland geliefert. Ein wirklich perfekter und freundlicher Service der nicht selbstverständlich ist. Many thanks Tom, it was great to make business with you! Thomas Eder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring (Translated below) A TRIP TO SCOTLAND to veiw a 1959 Porsche 356A - Very good condition, built for racing!  As per the add, I fell in love with the car which was offered by Border Reivers, So a flight booked flown to  Scotland. Quite a bit away from idyllic Glasgow situated on a lake,is where the company "Border Reivers" hides and specializes in high quality cars. The owner - Tom Fitzsimmons is more than friendly to us and very helpful. Caters to his customers every whim. He gave us late night run to Glasgow for a meat, shortly before midnight after back after it. We were in a spotless showroom, full of the objects of desire. He gave us peace to inspect and allowed us to undergo a test drive through the highlands afterwards. We agreed the purchase and some special requests and modifications to be carried out which were done by Border Reivers. We paid for the car and it was delivered to our doorstep in Munich, Germany in a covered transporter. A truly perfect and friendly service which is not self-evident. Many thanks Tom, it was great to do business with you! ThomasEder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
