Offering up my AWESOME Limes (pronounced Leem-ees) aviation chronograph. This is a super well made chronograph with a very pleasing retro feel and design. Limes is owned by Ickler, the renowned German company producing the highest quality watch cases since 1924.
41mm case (without crown and pushers) features a very subtle coin edge at mid-case that a beautiful aesthetic design touch. Sapphire crystals front and back. The movement is a beautifully decorated Valjoux 7750. I have rarely seen this movement with this level of decoration, and it is just stunning to look at! The movement is running flawlessly, keeping excellent time, and the chronograph starts, stops, and resets precisely!
Beautiful silver dial with black Arabic hour markers and hands, outer "railroad track" minute register, and red chronograph sweep seconds hand. The minute track has the 5 minute marks designated with red Arabic numerals, and the little pops of color add a nice punch to the dial.
Water resistance is rated at 100m, as designated on the case back.
The watch is on a brand new Hirsch leather strap with signed buckle, and bund pad for those who prefer the aviation styling.
Overall condition rated at 90%. Some minor signs of wear, but nothing over the top.
No original boxes or papers, but will ship securely and well protected.
BLOWOUT PRICE OF $475 NET TO ME delivered in US. The decorated 7750 movement alone is worth more than my asking price!!
Email with questions, and thanks for looking!!
