Up for sale is my Limes, (pronounced Leemez), Endurance 1 Tausand Chronograph. I am the original and only owner, purchased just a few months ago from a terrific AD here in the States. It is one of the few auto diving chronos that can withstand 1000 ft of pressure.
Limes parent company, Ickler, designed and produces the case in-house, it is wonderfully finished, and at 41.2mm, with down turned lugs, (lug tip to lug tip is 50.0mm), it sits very comfortably on your wrist.
The crown and pushers are all screw down to insure the 100 atm water resistance. The five link bracelet is also produced in-house, it is satin finished and really comfortable, its design unlike almost all the bracelets out there.
I have worn the 1 Tausand only a handful of times and I can find no marks on the case, bezel, bezel insert or crystal. The bracelet and clasp are unmarked as well, (except for some minor rub scuffs where the clasp opens against the first link). All chronograph functions operate flawlessly and last time worn it was running at +6 on my wrist.
The flat and internally coated AR Sapphire crystal covers a matte black dial that is just so easy to read, even with three sub-dials; not a commonplace achievement for a chrono that is only 41.2 mm in diameter.
The 1 Tausand will arrive at your door just as I received it, white cardboard Limes branded external box. The storage/display case is gorgeous, polished wood and felted cotton. Enclosed will be the stamped warranty card and links removed from sizing the bracelet to fit my 7.25" wrist.
