I'm looking to buy a blue Orient 2ER00002D or CER00008D, aka the Orient Snorkeler or Sapphire Snorkeler. It is the Orient Submariner homage watch that has been out of production for a while now. I've found a couple of places selling, but am hoping to find one used for a good price.
This is the watch I am speaking of:
- I do not mind scratches, as long as they are either light scratches on the case, or in some cases scratches on the mineral crystal of the 2ER, as I may, if I can find the 2ER for the right price, getting the mineral crystal replaced with a sapphire crystal. Any info on this process is greatly appreciated.
- I do not care at all about scratches on the bracelet, as I plan on wearing it on this NATO strap:
- This additionally means if someone has ONLY the watch sans bracelet for a good price, I am very interested!
- I will not be interested in a CER for more than $180 dollars, nor a 2ER for more than $140. You can message me with your watches above these prices and I will remark on your nice timepieces, but I will be unlikely to buy at these prices without additional features or included benefits.
This is my first WTB thread, and I would love any info of things I've done wrong, or things I ought to include!
