HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
While there is not an awful lot of data available for these watches, we do have a similar United Colors of Benetton watch with papers that was sold in 1995.
Benetton won the F1 constructors title in 1994 and 1995, and gave Micheal Schumacher his first world title in 1995 too. This is the second ccolourful chronograph we have found from them, and this one hasn’t been worn. The leather strap is the original, and has no signed of wear to the holes where the tang fits through. Naturally the signed buckle is still on the strap too. The watch has a quartz chronograph movement that is all working weel, and will be fitted with a fresh battery before being sent out. While the watch has no real marks or faults, the design does make the crown difficult to pull out – you do need a fingernail with this.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation tin and our Certificate of Authenticity.
