FS: Wittnauer 242T

Hello CTers -
I’ve reached my watch capacity, and with a recent purchase I am selling my Wittnauer 242T. I purchased the watch from another member of the forum in 2017. Since then has been worn sparingly and is in the same condition, with only a service in Dec 2017.

I agree with the original seller’s assessment (link below) that it is unpolished with a flawless dial, including full lume plots that match the hands, signed crown, sharp lugs and bevels. The only mark that stands out more than others is on the caseback, where prior to my owning someone slipped opening the case.
I am attaching the images from the original sale, which are better than I can do myself, but am happy to send as many and whatever additional images anyone would like - just shoot me a note.

If you have looked for these, you know that these watches are extremely difficult to find in great shape, particularly the hand lume, which usually shows excessive aging/discoloration (or simply missing lume), with some being relumed completely (and not well).

I am asking $10.6k, which is roughly what I paid plus service. I believe this is a fair price.
If you don’t agree, feel free to make an offer. :D
