Thought I had this Big Boy sold, but, long story short: it remains available; I need to raise funds and so I'm making a final reduction to: $1,675.
If you look at my previous posts, you will note that this watch is in excellent condition and looks great on a number of different straps as well as the mesh bracelet pictured here. A more full description follows:
This is in excellent vintage condition. To my eye it does not look to have been polished (all lines are clear, as is caseback wording). It was very recently fully serviced and completely cleaned (NOT polished -with the exception of the acrylic crystal which was buffed to remove surface scratches and one deeper scratch, but it looks exceptionally clear/clean). Super clean dial and hands (almost looks like New Old Stock).
To my knowledge all parts are original to the watch. It sets, winds and all chronograph functions work crisply. Keeping good time. The crown and stem appear original (as noted). There is a slight bend in the angle of the crown, but as it does not effect the mechanics (winding) or cosmetics of the watch, I have elected to leave it as is to maintain originality/authenticity of parts. The rotating bezel is in great shape and has just the right amount of friction.
If interested, or have any questions, please let me know. I have many more pictures to share that give a good indication of condition (I just can't figure out how to post multiple pics on this site). *Pictured strap/bracelet is not included, but I will ship with a nylon NATO strap.
Many, many references too.
Thanks for looking.
