Net $899 + Shipping. Will entertain serious offers & ignore crazy ones :) No Trades Please! CONUS Only. **PLEASE SEE FOLLOW UP POSTS FOR POTENTIAL PRICE DROPS**

Condition: Great overall condition. The bracelet has a few small hairline scratches from desk diving, but overall it's near mint. The case of the watch has some wear, most notably on the sides, but nothing major. The sides of the case has some wear due to strap changes (this has the higher quality screw bars, not spring bars). Crystal is mint.
Movement: Carl F. Bucherer Calibre CFB 1950
Crystal: Internal AR Coated Sapphire Crystal
Case: Stainless & Brushed
Dimensions: 38mm - 11mm Thickness (It wears closer to 39-40 mm in my opinion)
Caseback: Transparent
Crown: Screw Down
Dial: Carl F. Bucherer Bracelet, Eulit Perlon Strap, Shinola NATO Strap

This one's a tough one for me. I'm a huge Carl F. Bucherer fan but I'm saving up for an Omega, so my Montblanc is listed, but I needed to get rid of something else. I have two CFB Patravis' (An Autodate and Power Reserve), not really wanting to sell this, but it's a bit redundant in my collection to have two.

I purchased this watch in March of 2018 and it's been on my wrist quite frequently as it's incredibly versatile and comfortable. The color on this Patravi is an awesomely deep black/gray/brownish color depending on the light. It's one of CFB's signature colors, and in my opinion... it's best color. The watch is a perfect 38mm, but (in my opinion) wears closer to 39/40mm. I've attached photos of the watch on my nearly 7 inch wrist so you can see that it wears a bit larger (imo).

Regarding the warranty: This watch is insured via Asurion and expires 03/08/2020. Asurion is a well respected warranty vendor, and a quick search on WUS will show many good experiences with them. Either way, this watch is a tank so it's highly unlikely you'll need to utilize it, but it is an extra peace of mind. This warranty covers the movement, crystal, case & crown... essentially the most important pieces of the watch. If they're unable to fix it, they will provide a refund of up to $600 (this was due to the amount left on my trade in when purchasing this - they sadly don't take into consideration full value.. only "purchased" price). I've transferred Asurion warranties before, it can take a few weeks, so don't be concerned if after the sale, it takes a little bit of time to get that transferred.
The overall condition of this watch is very good. It keeps brilliant time and is running at a very respectable +1 to 3 seconds per day. All links included. It's been well loved and worn. Because the watch is very intricate with its stainless & brushed metals, it hides scratches very well. There are hairline scratches on this watch, but the only semi-noticeable mark is a smudge on the bezel, but again, the case hides these marks well. I've included some photos under very harsh lighting to show these marks (I'm probably doing myself a disservice as no watch, even worn just one day will look good under such harsh lighting), but as you can tell from the photos I've taken in standard lighting, these marks do not show up. The crystal is in mint condition. The Bucherer Watch box is impressive and is quite heavy. It's very presentable but shows some wear on the rubber (which is very common). These boxes alone sell for $100+ on eBay.

As noted above, this watch does not use spring bars, but use screw bars (generally found on higher end watches). It took some time to master changing the straps, but I can provide hints on the easiest way to the buyer :)

As you can see from the photos, this is a FULL set, which includes:
-Carl F. Bucherer Patravi Autodate
-Carl F Bucherer Watch Box (this thing is MASSIVE and heavy)
-Carl F Bucherer Paded Outer box
-Carl F. Bucherer branded shipping box
-Eulit Perlon Strap (Made in Germany)
-Shinola NATO Strap (Made in USA)

Red watch pedestal not included :)
