WTB: Near mint/very good 2537.80 James Bond 007 Ltd Ed

I am interested in owning this watch to wear, as opposed to collect and/or as an investment piece. As such, I am open to a watch that has been worn, sized, and may show some *slight* signs of wear -- although very well cared for.

Crystal must be mint and watch must be running precision w/in COSC range. Serial number intact, and I'd be looking for seller to make something along the lines of a guarantee of authenticity, "I stand behind it" statement. Crown, bezel, and escape valve should work properly. All OEM parts and assembly (no substitute caseback, bracelet, et cetera).

Now, the reason you're talking to me ... is because the paperwork is missing or incomplete, case no longer around or in poor shape. Again, the case, bracelet and even the bezel can allow some wear.

I currently own a Seamaster Professional 2531.80 (new, purchased through AD), but the 007 thing has a particular interest for me. My view of time pieces is that I buy them to wear. So if you have maybe been the same, and you've enjoyed your 2537.80, but are now looking to sell it as "used," then I may be your buyer. I doubt that if James Bond were selling his watch here that it would be pristine, so I realize this is what's to be expected of a chronometer that has "lived life."

Thanks so much for reading this!
