We all see the term near-mint thrown around quite a bit on the sales forums. Sometimes is just seems to mean "no really bad damage". But other times you get lucky. This watch came from a friend, having previously been worn by another friend, so I knew it was in good shape.
But even expecting it to look good I was still surprized by just how nearly flawless it actually is.
Hate to gush, so I'll just put up photos.
