I recently acquired this rather beautiful watch as a trade. Incredible piece, but not my style. I believe I am the third owner.
The leather strap on the watch is around 75% and on this basis I would say the watch has been worn quite a few times, but there are no visible scratches on the watch, indicating careful previous owners.
Included in the package are brand new leather and rubber straps. Also included are all three boxes, all papers including the LE certificate, pusher tool, plastic case cover and various other bitsies. (See photo.)
Price is US$24,000. Payment via wire only to my Australian account. No trades thank you. HK, Korean and Japanese buyers may be interested to know that I am based in Shanghai. Will also be travelling to Australia in the near future.
As a sweetener I am throwing in a brand new Panerai full-grain leather iPad/document holder (which smells beautiful!), and the Giampiero Negretti book "PANERAI" still untouched in its plastic wrapping. These are collector's items in their own right for the discerning Paneristo.
