Putting up a homebuilt Flieger that I find I no longer wear often enough to have it taking up room in the box.
I built this out of parts originally from a Parnis pilot watch, keeping the hands, movement and crown, but putting it in an improved case with a better dial.
Asking $100 USD, payment through PayPal, I cover fees and basic shipping. Will also include the original Parnis sterile Type A Flieger dial, and a larger crown that came with the new case.
The watch is in good condition, and will come on a very comfortable 22mm Lew & Huey padded leather strap from their Phantom watch. There are some very minor marks on the sides of the brushed case from normal wear (hard to see if not in the right light), and a few marks on the caseback from a caseback opener. The movement has a very slight amount of side to side play inside the case, which may be corrected with the correct movement tabs and screws.
The watch isn't perfect, but it's in good condition and would make a great starter watch from someone wanting to learn to mod. The movement works great, the dial is beautiful, the case is good quality. Just looking for a quick sale, so make an offer.
