Created Simply by Mother Nature (or Destroyed??)

He writes: "The tropical subdials on this watch make it super special and really tell a story of the life this watch has lived. It has been owned from new by one owner from the U.K. He wore this most days when he got it new and as an outdoors kind of person, the sun has aged the subdials fantastically well and they now boast their own colouration - No money can buy that! Created simply by mother nature. I think that is why i love tropical dials so much. They essentially grow and develop their own character and style."

So that's why it's priced at five times the prevailing market price?

Or perhaps because it's the very rare crossover model? You know, when Heuer switched from the 195 series to the 196 series!!



: Complete b*llocks of course, but hilarious nonetheless!
