Up for your consideration is my custom build pilot’s watch with 42mm stainless steel case, 50mm lug to lug, and 10mm thick. The watch houses a Unitas 6497 Swiss hand winding movement and Anonimo prototype dial. Dial and hand lume match in potency and color. It has a sapphire top crystal and mineral crystal for the rear exhibition case back. All parts used for this build are Swiss made. The watch is running about 1 minute fast per day and could likely need a regulation or service if better timekeeping is desired. I was the original purchaser 5 years ago from a watchmaker named Dennis Rudy, sold it here on the forums and repurchased it back from my buyer about 6 months ago. It has spent most of it’s time in my watch box. The watch is in 90% condition showing wear on the bezel and case sides. Also included with the watch are 2 additional 22mm straps and a solid case back if you decide the exhibition case back isn’t your thing.
This is a one of a kind build, no other watch will resemble it.
Only asking $275 USD, which includes shipping and PayPal fees on my end.
