SOLD!!!!

I purchased this watch from an eBay user last year and haven't worn it more than a dozen times. It is in very good shape with no major scratches and just tiny nicks on the sides of the case and bezel that do not show up in photos. The anti-reflective coating on the front of the crystal is in excellent shape as I cannot detect any scuffs or scratches.

In full disclosure, I have noticed that when hand-winding the Sellita SW-200 movement, what appears to be the over-wind clutch slips a tiny bit every other turn or so. It always catches back up instantly and does not prevent the watch from being fully wound, but it makes for a less-than-smooth winding action. I have found no issue with the watch's operation, timing, or power reserve and feel that when this watch is serviced in the coming years, it will be quickly remedied. Correspondingly, I have significantly reduced the asking price of this watch from what I normally would for an Archimede watch in this condition.

I am selling this really nice flieger because I purchased a B-dial Laco this past summer and my preferences have me favor the Laco over the Archimede, so the A-dial just doesn't get worn.

Included are the watch, a brown Steinhart leather rivet strap, a black Jurgens leather rivet strap, the Archimede box with display pillow, and a rather skimpy and slightly tattered user manual.
