    I'm having a MAJOR clearout and have several beauties up for grabs.

    T&Cs for all items:
    1. I'm going to be away until June 5th and will not conclude any sale until then. Feel free to register interest via PM and I'll get back to you.
    2. All sale prices include fully insured P&P to UK and EU. I'll consider sales outside EU but only to regular forum members.
    3. Preferred payment is via Paypal (gift/F&F), Bank Transfer or Barclays Pingit.

    Now a watch with a bit of history. Picked up from a mate as a non-working unit. David helped me locate a new movement which Nic at Chronomatic fitted for me. It turned out that the original movement had been water-damaged and Nic told me that there had also caused some damage to the dial. If you look carefully at the photo with Nic's fingers, you can see where the minute index markers between 2 and 4 have been lost. You can also see that this watch has had an active life and the case and bezel has the scars to prove it.
    However, brand new movement has now been fitted and the watch functions perfectly (once you've studied the manual to work out how to set the Calibre S movement)

    Included in the sale is:
    1) Outer box
    2) Inner case (poor condition)
    3) Instruction booklet and sleeve (sleeve in fair condition)
    4) Warranty card
    5) The CAF7114 on original bracelet.
    6) Spare links / pins
    7) The old water damaged movement if you want it!!

    Price:£600 (net to me)

    Piccies:

    Hi Adam,
    Would you happen to know if a new replacement dial is available and if so how much it would cost including fitting?

    I don't think the cost of fitting would be a problem but I think tracking down and buying a dial would be challenging.
    As I am brilliantly demonstrating, the cost of refurbing these models is something you should do for love, not profit!
    Honestly, if you replaced the dial, and polished the case, you'd then look at the bezel and worry about the couple of small nicks in that.
    Or, you could just accept it for what it is. A well worn piece with great wrist presence that you don't worry about giving a knock or two. Plus you have the knowledge that underneath the hood is a funky brand new movement. :cool:

    Thanks for the reply Adam, I could live with the few nicks in the bezel and an unpolished case but the missing writing / markings on the dial would irritate me hence why I asked about a replacement.
