U-Boat U-42 6471, 47mm Limited Edition in excellent condition, box and papers and warranty
This watch is in excellent condition with only some very minor signs of wear, mostly just on the leather straps buckle and the strap itself. I am the original owner, purchasing it new about 1.5 years ago. Comes with the original strap (shows signs of wear) and titanium buckle as well as a spare titanium buckle that can be added to another strap. Also comes with the awesome original box, which is a huge aluminum box that is an absolute work of art! Its hard to get excited about a watch box and most of mine get put into storage, but this watch has always been stored in its original box on my dresser because its just so cool. I am only selling the watch to downsize my large collection and raise funds for my sons college costs. It has only been worn a couple dozen times as it is part of a large collection. So it shows some signs of wear, but looks amazing.
47mm diameter, 23mm lug width, sapphire crystal, Swiss ETA automatic movement, 300m water resistance, and still a few months of warranty left. The movement is working well and keeping time within a few seconds per day. This is from a limited edition run of 999 pieces that is no longer available new from US AD's. There was also a run of a much larger 53mm version of this watch
the one that Arnold Schwarzenegger wears, but this is the more manageable (and thus more desirable) 47mm size. This should fit 7 inch and larger wrists fine, but it is definitely a big, bold, and manly watch! The construction though is entirely titanium, so it is surprisingly light and comfortable to wear.
Original retail was $6,100. Out of stock at most retailers, but it appears that some overseas dealers still have a couple new for $3,600 and up (chrono24). I am asking $2,950 for this watch. At this price I will include tracked and insured shipping. US sales only please. Contact by e-mail is best at [email protected]
