For sale is my Helson Shark Diver 42 with ETA 2824-2.
I will say this right off the bat, if you are looking for a minty-fresh watch that you can sit in your watch box and just look at, maybe wear in the shower once and a while to get it wet, this is not the watch for you.
If you are looking for a solid watch to take on some adventures and not worry about some dings, then read on.
This watch was originally sold in 2012. I am the second owner. I have not babied it but i have loved it. It has been snorkelling in the Bahamas, canoe tripping in the wilds of Canada and hiking in too many places to name. There are numerous scratches to the sides of the case and lugs as well as three good scratches in the bezel at 10, 15 and 20 all of which I have tried to capture in the photos. I didn't wear the bracelet much but it has the usual desk diving marks.
Why ever would you buy it then?
Because I have taken this all into account and am selling it for USD$375 including PayPal and shipping to Canada and the USA. Sorry, no trades or international sales.
What you get is a solid watch that is keeping great time (no I have not measured the timekeeping but have noticed no problems). The Lume is ridiculous and I have had no problems with the screw-down crown.
The watch will come with the bracelet with the extra links, a Helson branded leather band that matches the colour of the Shark Diver font on the dial - it also has a very cool shark etched on the buckle (the band is 24mm but fits the 22mm lugs), the case, strap changing tool and original warranty card.
