Nice, when people think it’s important enough to take time to write a testimonial

May 17, 2020

Hi Guys    

My Perfect 964 Carrera 2 Coupe

To anyone thinking of buying a classic Porsche, I can honestly say Tom is one of the most informed people I spoke to on my journey to find my forever car and an absolute gentleman. Having never owned a classic Porsche before and having waited a good few years to get one, I asked a lot of questions. I often contacted Tom two or three times a day in the run up to seeing it and he was always very patient and easy to speak to.  Tom and the team were extremely accommodating when I arranged for a professional mechanical and paint inspection at very short notice (which it cruised through). Negotiation was effortless and extremely fair and was mostly done before I’d even got there.

To the car….. WOW.    The pictures I had did not do it justice, it looks phenomenal. Unsurprising as the standard of the cars at Border Reivers in general is ridiculously high and when you get to the showroom it’s easy to see why, when I saw the quality, love and attention which go into their cars. The car was easily the nicest to drive and most well presented of the 964s I drove when looking. I was unsure about manual v tip, Tom and I spoke at length about this, he assured me given the driving I was going to be doing the tip would be better and he was on the money again. I picked the car up on a Friday afternoon for a scintillating  330 mile drive home, the car never missed a beat and I was relaxed enough I could have turned around and driven straight back, In fact, I couldn’t wait to get up the next morning and get out in him again for a few hours.   The 964s are honestly worth the hype and Border Reivers are worthy of their reputation.  If I had the means and the garage space I’d be on my way back up there right now for that breathtaking 1958 356A Speedster.

Thanks again Tom (17-05-2020)

See you again when this lockdown malarkey is over.

Kind regards

Our friends at the Edinburgh Watch Company

May 15, 2020

To those of you that have followed our news page over the last few years you may remember I introduced you to our friends at Edinburgh Watch Company. It’s founder Jonathan Gilbert like us has a love of sports cars too but since a teenager has had an interest in wrist watches that developed into a passion so when a redundancy from his banking career at RBS came along he grasped the opportunity to build his own luxury watch business in 2014.

As Jonathan now approaches his 6th year in business he has enoyed curating and selling hundreds of fine Swiss timepieces and has shared with me today a small selection of his Limited Editions along with some special offers on his website that I thought may be of interest to you.

His company is not a large corporate affair but instead a boutique business that offers a 1:1 personal service where Jonathan offers his expertise and can guide you whether you are thinking of selling or investing in a beautiful timepiece.

As a customer myself I am happy to endorse the views of the 300+ 5* testimonials you can see when perusing his website.

Please mention your Border Reivers connection when contacting Jonathan and he will do his best to look after you. You can reach Jonathan on 07765 896 896 or via his website https://edinburghwatchcompany.co.uk/

Meantime I share an extract from his recent newsletter which you can sign up for on the EWC homepage

Limited Editions

We really enjoy buying Limited Edition watches as they are often unique and generally hold their value well in the long term.

Perhaps my favourite watch I’ve seen of recent is our 18ct Moonshine gold Omega Speedmaster. This celebrates 50 years since the Speedmaster landed on the moon on the Apollo 11 mission. Just 1014 of these watches have been made and this largely replicates the original made by Omega 50 years ago. It is hand-wound, features a domed meteorite inlay and is finished in a simply gorgeous specially manufactured 18ct Moonshine gold.This unworn masterpiece is likely a watch for the collector but one I hope will be worn and enjoyed rather than left in a safe!

The relationship between Omega and the 007 James Bond franchise is strong and as a result it has produced a wonderful collection of watches through the years. We have the latest unworn Seamaster 300m version in stock which offers you a choice to wear it on a rubber strap or the traditional stainless steel bracelet. The Seamaster 300M is an excellent watch that is very comfortable to wear, highly accurate and has a striking design.

Also celebrating 50 years is Tag Heuer with their Monaco series, an iconic watch made famous by Steve McQueen. In 2019 they brought out five limited edition versions each celebrating 10 years. We have the last one in the series 2009-2019 to which there were only 169 made. This would make a wonderful gift for a motorsport fan with it’s link to the racetrack and period leather strap. Like our other watches above this is also unworn.

angle2EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLANDPorsche 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 BayernThomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
