Another one up for sale whilst gathering cash for a "big" grail.
I have owned this for a while but gave it very little wear, so time to go to someone who will enjoy& wear it more hopefully.
To make it clear from the beginning, this is no safe-queen - I bought it used myself as I really liked the design but couldn't find it anywhere at the time for less than 1000$ new, so when the opportunity came to buy a used one, I went for it. It does NOT come with box/papers, its watch only, and it does have plenty of wear marks on the bracelet/case, couple of dings as well on the slim bezel as can be somewhat seen in the photos (hard to photograph most marks, don't have any hi-end camera nor much skills
but there are definitely plenty of marks).
Having said that, it runs like a champ, keeping extremely good time, despite me not having any service history for it. I put it on the winder a few days ago, as I always do when I decide to sell something to check how accurate it is, and it has been running at something like less than 2 seconds average off true time, which is of course excellent.
The bracelet does NOT come with additional links but it should fit wrists up to 7.25" or so - its a bit loose on my 7" wrist and there's one more adjustment hole on the clasp that can be used .
This has
a case size of 41mm according to my calipers but due to the almost non-existent lugs (the bracelet connects right at the edge of the case), it means it does not wear big at all for small/medium wrists such as mine.
The movement is of course chronometer-grade which means it was originally adjusted to 5 positions& temperature, hence I guess why it still keeps such good time, despite being I'm guessing at least 5-6 years old.
I believe the price I'm offering it at to be very fair, especially for EU-based buyers such as myself who always have to take a hit with VAT, etc. when buying. Thus no low-balling - depending on the degree of insult perceived for those that might want to try anyway, I will either not reply or add you directly to my ignore list so you won't be able to see any of my future well priced sales. No offence to anyone intended, however my experience with my most recent sales here on WUS has been that I was met with a relentless barrage of much lower or ridiculously lower prices than asked, hence why I want to make it very clear what my response will be to such messages.
The price includes registered/signed for postage within EU - I much prefer a bank transfer (in EUR) for payment, but I can also take PayPal, so long as buyer is prepared to cover all fees. Buy with trust - been selling/buying on this an many other forums for the past decade and have loads of feedback to show for it, some here and a lot more on TZ-UK as well as other European watch forums (fora? )
