    This is the excellent Chinese Mechanical Watch subforum-designed internal bezel watch, which shipped from Thomas in Hong Kong in July of 2013. Limited edition numbered 31 out of 155. I am including a 22mm Nato strap made for the Affordables /f71 forum (never worn) and my hand-dyed IWM leather strap. My dying job isn't perfect underneath, but it's a unique shade of brown that I blended to compliment the dial, and the strap is very supple and soft. The watch also comes with the original hefty stainless steel bracelet with solid end links, never sized and still in its protective plastic; and the original unworn black leather strap with -W- logo buckle. I'll include the original wooden box and the extra dragon-etched winding rotor that came as a souvenir back-up. The watch has no obvious flaws nor scratches, basically in like-new condition. It runs and winds as it should. I wore it about 8 times in the last year, within a rotation of 40+ watches. I'm selling this in an ongoing attempt to keep my collection under four dozen, and although 42mm diameter is perfect for most people, my tastes veer toward smaller watches. Here are specs and photos:

    To thin out my collection, I sometimes put a few affordable vintage and modern watches up to find a good home, nothing urgent. I'm not "saving for a grail" just trying to keep an oversized collection in check. I try to give full disclosure about known conditions. I don't make profit on my sales, so I prefer to ship only in north America, but I'm flexible if you are. Selling as-is. I promise I am describing full known condition (veering towards negatives for this reason, knowing and sharing our slightly obsessive WIS nature.) Price includes Paypal fees and shipping USA/Canada first class uninsured. (If you want special or overseas shipping we can discuss extra costs.) I frequently post on the Affordables forum and elsewhere. I have purchased and sold many watches here, with good feedback. Enjoy! - Robert

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    The watch is now sold for full asking price - many thanks to WUS and to Roy.
