Model: Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller
Serial Number: 5,41X,XXX
This watch has been worn for about a decade by its original owner and then put away. I do not want to use any language that is not appropriate to describe the case but in all my years of collecting I saw only two vintage Sea-Dwellers that had nicer cases. The case back engravings still have dainty remnants of black enamel in a few spots, and the Helium Escape valve still sits deeply in the case.
There are no service markings in the case back and all the screws on the movement still look untouched to me. The plastic crystal is obviously scratched/scuffed and chipped (I decided to leave it "as is"), but the dial is spotless and the hands match perfectly -- leading me to believe that they are all original to the watch.
I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story:
My price: $12k.
The price includes a brand new aftermarket NATO-style Nylon strap -- your choice of Black, Gray or Olive Drab (i.e. Khaki).
The watch is currently in New England (USA) and a face-to-face transaction in Western MA / Northern CT is encouraged. Otherwise, fully insured shipping within the U.S. would be $50. For overseas buyers, shipping will be at cost and I would be happy to let the buyer choose the shipping method.
3 day return policy if the watch is not as described or does not match the pictures. Shipping fees are not refundable and the watch would have to be returned in the same condition as received.
