SOLD!!!!!

I'm selling this very well done homage to the O&W Caribbean 1000 for one reason and one reason only. It's just a bit too large for my current comfort zone! I really wish I had a preference for larger watches. My SLA is causing me to rethink anything I have over 42mm now. This one was a chance I took on a cool looking watch, unfortunately I just wish it was a bit smaller.

My quick 90 second review is:

Nice quality watch that compares favorably with the Eterna Super Kontiki 1973 Reissue that I used to own. That was a $1500 watch so Zoretto did well on their 3rd release. This watch also compares favorably with the Crepas Cayman that was homaging the same O&W Caribbean. Used versions of the Cayman still sell for over $1000 so I would say that Zoretto nailed the value equation. The finishing is all polished but it isn't the immediate scratch magnet that Seiko polishing seems to be. The dial is a looker and this watch could easily fit the bill for a dress diver. The lume is excellent and lasts all night without a problem. The lume on the bezel is just as strong as the hands and markers, which is a nice change from other micros using lumed sapphire inserts that fade too quickly. The watch wears flat and comfortably on the wrist...(this from a guy who doesn't like big and heavy watches).

The plastic is still on the case back. The leather strap and the beads of rice bracelet have never been used and are still in the box. I will also include a brand new unused black leather strap with the sale. (I had been wearing it on another older leather strap until I knew if I would keep it or not).

I will add more pics in the next day or two and if you want to see more pics please ask. The watch is really in mint condition and has no visible marks on it. (the last 2 pics belong to @watches503). I also have a picture next to my SLA017 that is 39.6mm so you can get a visual of the dimensions.

$600 NET for full kit plus additional leather strap. This is less than available from Zoretto and I have already paid the FedEx customs handling fees for you ~$30. CONUS SALE only. Please do your research on sellers. I have hundreds of successful transactions here for a reason.







These last 2 pics are taken by @watches503 because i don't have one with the bracelet attached to my watch since I never took it out of the plastic.
