The watch is SOLD - thank you!
------------------------------------

I'm selling my serial #007 Acionna (black & red) for $445 (US dollars)
with unworn bracelet and OEM strap, plus extra thick brown leather strap included.

I removed the bracelet upon delivery, without ever wearing or re-sizing. It still has plastic protectors on it.
OEM Leather strap was never worn nor attached.
I will include the pilot-style IWM "Oily Leather" thick supple leather strap (pictured).
I am original owner of the watch, and I wore it about four times.
Serial number #007, purchased on pre-order direct from Chris Vail.


Why am I selling? Well, it's just a bit too lumpy for my fickle tastes, which veer toward thin small vintage watches. I bought this on pre-order, to help Chris out in his start-up phase, and I also wanted to learn if I would like a Stowa SeaTime. This case has a lot in common with the Stowa. I realized it doesn't really fit my personality, although I love everything else about the watch. It was my first Miyota 9015, and I would certainly look for others with this movement - it's velvet smooth, great auto-wind and very accurate. I am selling to break even at my (discounted pre-order) cost plus estimated Paypal charges and shipping included (free leather strap.) This is currently selling at $600 on Chris' website, discounts show up around $550. Mine is basically new, and all original packaging included.

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

And she's gone, at the original asking price of $445. Many thanks to the buyer and to WUS.
