These quartz chronographs with alarms and rotating bezel were sold only to the
Italian market, and this is the most deeply saturated orange you're likely to find
on any dial, anywhere. Included is the original bracelet, which should fit a 7-3/4"
wrist, a black & gray nato, and a brand new Bonetto Cinturini rubber strap which
has got to be one of the most beautiful and supple rubber straps i've ever seen.

These were put out in 1998, and you don't see them for sale often. This is the
second one i've had, and lately i've been selling off my bigger watches, anything
that wears bigger than 42mm, so i should have known better than to buy a
46mm x 48mm x 13mm watch. It's a reasonable size for a tuna, and while there's
no lug overhang, it really is too much watch for my wrist.

i am adding in here, Seiko lume became what it now is, as far as i can tell, in 1997.
the nlume in this watch from 1998 is as good as when it was new. It is
super-reponsive, and it holds a bright glow all night long. i tested it,
night legibility is important to me.

A previous owner had a NOS crystal installed. Except for one tiny pinprick, i'd've
thought the bezel was new, too. The case has a few hairlines and a small ding
around 10 on the lower sidewall, but it hides behind the chrono button, you
can't see it unless it's off the wrist and you're looking for it. I've done my best
to photograph these small flaws, for a 23 year old watch, i'd have to say it is
in remarkably good condition.

Sale is for the watch, the bracelet, and the 2 straps, only. No Trade offers, please.
I'd like to see $525 net to me through paypal. I'll send anywhere in the USA
including Hawaii and Alaska, why discriminate against them? Or Canade? But
to send anywhere else will cost extra, that's all.

Thanks for looking, and thanks to Watchuseek.
