Here we have a truly amazing adventure/travel watch for just $265 shipped CONUS. The SUN045 is one of the best bangs for your buck that you can get. It has a true pilot's GMT with the jumping hour hand and a date that quick changes depending on which way you're going. The rubber strap is the same kind of supple rubber that the new Turtles come with and the hardware is in great shape. Despite being a slightly larger watch at 48mm, it wears surprising well on a variety of straps/wrists. With having the case be mostly black it really makes the watch look smaller than it really is.

The watch has been worn so there are a some slight marks on the case but nothing that affects operation. I tried to be as conservative in my pictures and show things as bad as I can since all sales are final. You can see that the case is still in good condition and while you're wearing this beast you don't really notice the spots. The sale is for the watch only and will be shipped either the same day as payment or the next business day. The watch seems to be running very well and really allows you to be involved with it since you have to rotate the rotor to build up some of that 6 month power reserve. As far as trades go, I'm open to trading up/down/across. I love divers, pilot watches, and I'm still trying to chase down a great dress watch at least 36mm. Let me know what you have
