ULTRA RARE- PROTOTYPE MARATHON JSAR AUTOMATIC. I got this watch from the former product director of Marathon Watches. When he left the company he took with him several watches along with some rare prototypes which never made it into production- THIS IS ONE OF THEM. Only two were made. The serial number on this one is NUMBER 1 and it is dated from the first contract date of November 2007 for the Jumbo Size JSAR- also know as the LPJ or Le Grande Plongeur. The watch case is made of 316L stainless steel. Upfront, it important to note that this is a big watch. It measurements: 46.6mm diameter, 50mm across with crown, 17mm thick, 22mm lug width and 55mm lug to lug. It also weighs in at almost 160 grams. What differs is that this proto type uses a 25J Swiss Automatic movement and has a slight domed crystal. Otherwise the case is the same as the High Torque Quartz JSAR. The watch is outfitted with a thick silicone Maratec strap. Near Mint. ONE OF TWO MADE. SUPER RARE. SELL- $995.00 PLUS SHIPPING.
