Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]

Probably one of the best Mk IV examples on the planet, with an unpolished and near-unmarked case (some hairlines from storage and desk use), perfect blue dial with orange/black hands, as well as some non-standard parts which add rather than detract to the look/value:
- Rare white Base 1000 bezel and "clover" caseback, both of which are typically found on earlier Mk I/II models; and
- Orange "arrow" subdial hand, as opposed to usual "stick" variant - not sure where this originates from, but it sure looks nice!
The watch also comes with the pictured vintage Japanese Maruman bracelet, which lends a very futuristic look to this late 60s timepiece.
Unfortunately no movement shots as I haven't the proper caseback tools, but watch winds firmly and timekeeping has been spot-on in my personal experience.
Selling because I have three Sherpas and this gets the least wear due to its pristine condition - first world problems, I know... Bank transfer only, FedEx insured shipping included, plenty of references available.
