I'm clearing out a pair of watches that are just sitting around for one reason or another. I would like to sell or trade them off as a pair.
First is an Evant Tropic 300 Matte that was purchased from Gnomon in Feb. 2017. It has some marks due to strap changes on the underside of the lugs, and the bezel marker at the 6 seems to have a tiny little bit of lume missing. All this can be seen in the pics. It comes with box, cards and 3 OEM Evant straps. The dark blue strap has a little bit of damage on the lug end that can be seen in a pic. The ETA 2824-2 Elabore movement keeps excellent time with plenty of power reserve. I'm letting this one go as it just doesn't suit me the way I had hoped.
Second is a Hamilton Field Khaki 40mm on a really unique OEM Strap. It comes with boxes (inner fold down portion of the box is a little damaged), manual but no warranty information. If I had to guess, it was probably a grey market purchase. This watch does have some issues. The date wheel isn't perfectly centered and although the movement can be wound it doesn't seem to hold a power reserve for longer than 8 hours or so. So it will need a service. That being said, the rotor allows it to keep great time while wearing it. It only seems to stop once taken off for about 8 hours or more. The case is in excellent shape and the strap is worn (in a good way) with plenty of life left. I'd send it for service myself as I really like the look of the watch but it's just a little too small for my liking.
I'm asking $495 USD for the pair which includes PAYPAL and shipping to anywhere in Canada or CONUS. Payment via EMT in CDN funds or a face to face deal in the west end of the Greater Toronto Area is more than welcome.
As for trades I'm looking to trade both for one watch. My trade value is slightly higher.
My preference is 40mm+ dive watches and a few I'd be interested in are;
Steinhart Ocean 1 GMT - Strong preference towards a coke bezel but pepsi and black are good too.
Certina DS Action Diver - any SS or the Ti model
Hamilton Frogman SS - the newest model in black or blue dial/bezel with a preference towards the rubber strap model but bracelet is ok too.
Hamilton Pan Europ 3 hander - Any dial model
Let me know what you have to offer. The worst I can say is "No Thanks." Any trade deals are to be within Canada only. I will not trade outside of Canada due to the high customs and duties that I will get hit with.
I have plenty of references if required. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for looking
