What is for sale here and condition

If you are looking at this ad, you know this watch !

No, really, sure you know this watch. LOL.

Not too much I can say of this classic other than it has been with me since new ! I purchased it directly myself while visiting Japan the first time. It has absolutely everything as when like new. You need to know that the original Blue Sparks came in a long box and not squared as you have seen before. It has some normal scratches and marks after all these years with me since 2008, but nothing major. I used it for a few years and then started to be in the box due to other watches. The strap is quite used and it is all original. This is for sure a classic nowadays. About a year or so ago the watch was professionally regulated and pressure tested. Crown screws in and out perfectly. The dial is one of the cleanest dials I have ever owned. It pains me to let go this one but I decided to reduce my “collection” very drastically. Whoever gets this watch will be happy. This is from the VERY early runs of the Sparks. You see a picture of the magazine ad I got in Japan. Funny story is that I did not know this model would be so liked, I just “circled” the one I liked to come back with the money next day… It just so happens that I have good taste apparently because the Blue Spark is such a great watch ! Many compared the 6R series of movements to ETA Elabore grade and I agree.

The pictures are part of the description. I am not a watchmaker and I do not have the tools to check for water resistance, so WR is not guaranteed. TZ 91% conservative for this used but not abused watch. Please read my feedback if you do not know me and you will see that I always describe my watches to the best of my abilities, and always wants the new owner to be happy.

What you see in the pictures is what you get, unless stated above otherwise. Always ask, please ask any questions before committing to buy. Blue strap is not included. Ad from Japan is not included.
