CONDITION

The watch itself is running well, but this item is about the accessories.  The watch slots into the various cases, and then the strap is threaded through needing no tools or skills at all.  This set has three machined bezels, and five enamel ones (aqua, black, peach and two cream).  There is space in the lid of the original box to add five straps (8mm one piece straps), so you could easily mix up the colours.  All the bezels look to be in good condition.  There is one dark blue strap included – it isn’t original, as it s a bit too long for the case.  It could be cut down if needed.

SIZE

20.5mm wide including the crown, 7.1mm thick when using one of the smaller enamel bezels.  Takes an 8mm strap.

PRICE

£179 including 3 months guarantee and free delivery to UK addresses.
