The Freelancer collection was launched in 2007, and this one here is very close to the current model with a RRP of £1,695. Model reference 2740-ST-20021
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
Like many New Old Stock watches, the warranty card was never completed as the watch was never sold. The latest print date on one of the booklets was for April 2014, so the watch can not be older than this.
NOS Swiss watches are rare, because who forgets about a watch that was expensive? So while this Freelancer is not our normal vintage stock, it was too good an opportunity to turn down when we can offer it at less than one third of the new price. The watch only has the lightest of storage marks, the bracelet is full length and has never been resized – indeed the hang tag is still fitted. The leatherette finish to the inside of the box is deteriorating which is surprisingly common for Swiss watches – but it does show it has some age and wasn’t made yesterday. The specification is good – screw down crown, sapphire crystal, exhibition case back, solid bracelet with screwed links, and a 26 jewel Sellita automatic movement.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation boxes, blank papers, hang tag and our Certificate of Authenticity.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon. By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
