I got both watches from my watchmaker. July and August 2018. Interesting story, does not happen often, he says. Both are from Slovakia, where we are located. Jo Siffert style comes from and old guy, he still lives. He stopped by on a sunny day and offered it to sell. Only shame that the watch is a bit overpolished. He is is first and only owner. He had it serviced once in Budapest.
Orange style boy belonged to a farmer (really). He passed away recently, his family brought it to his shop. I had orange style boy completely cleaned, as it was a bit dirty. Can provide before/ after pictures of cleaning at my watchmakers studio. I love to sneak around satchmaker and look & learn, while he allows me to take pictures. Orange boy is super crispy, sunburst effect still visible. Only minute hand lost some lume.
Technically - both watches are in great condition and shape, according to watchmaker.
I decided to buy it because of the brand spirit. But it is too big for my hand - I prefer 36 to 38mm diameter. I found myself never to wear it. Like really never had it on my wrist since july this year, when I bought it. I know - I will never do the same mistake - dont buy a watch you wont wear.
I dont look for a profit. I payed 6500 EUR for both of them together. So it would be great just to have at least few hundreds on top to cover shipping - lets say 6800 EUR, hope it finds an owner that wears it.
I trust those watches. They are completely honest, checked, cleaned.
I might be even willing to trade it for something else I might enjoy wearing. Feel free to offer your watch for trade - looking for Mido Multicenter Chrono or Eberhard Contodat.
If needed, I can send more detailed information, pictures, etc.
Watches are located in EU.
Shipping costs to be agreed with new owner, based on his location.
