Hi and happy new year!
I'm selling a piece of my collection.
It's a not often seen Lorenz chrono-diver Sub Professional, 666 feet.
The watch comes from 1997 and was purchased time ago to the original owner. I just used it a couple of times, because I don't wear the watches I collect, so it keeps the same amazing condition in which was bought.
It comes with its original box, display and papers (with the date of first purchase). Outer side of the box, since made in a very 90s synthetic leather, shows some signs of ageing, but anyway it makes a good added value to the watch.
Pictures are very big and signs of use, that of course has, look very magnified by the camera, but it is a watch in excellent condition, let's say 9/10, with only that light mark in the backcase as something to notice. Looks never polished
The movement is the well-known Lemania 5100 automatic, with the central minutes chronographic extra hand.
Watch winds and works perfectly, all functions.
All stainless steel, with original signed crown and bracelet, and a size of 40 mm. excluding crown, guards and pushers, that due to their compactness make the watch feel and look a bit bigger. Very contemporary to use, with a pre-vintage feeling.
Signed stainless steel bracelet has a double clasp security system.
I link, for help and info, a thread comparing this watch with the Zenith DeLuca, a comparison in which the Lorenz gets a good qualification. :0)
Asking price is 1200 euros, plus actual shipping cost depending on the way chosen by the buyer.
Due to its condition and dotation, I guess my price is pretty fair, so please don't send absurdly low offers.
My priority is selling it, but since as usual I sell to reinvest in watches, I could listen to trade offers that include a chronograph pre-1980, of at least the same value or maybe a little higher and I can add money, if interested.
Thanks for reading. I have a few references both selling and buying here, so feel free to ask anyway you like. Regards
