  • [SOLD] CELUX 44MM CH PRO PVD PROTOTIPO #1 - ETA/UNITAS 6497 CLONE - MANUAL WIND 17J - ASSEMBLED IN NEW ZEALAND - PRICE: $380 Delivered

    Very similar to the 9 CELUX PRO PILOT watches we've made that are well covered in this link:

    https://www.timekeeper.co.nz/forum/m...-420-delivered

    The differences here are really mostly cosmetic, the structural difference is the crown and crown tube here are threaded for increased pressure resistance... we wanted to make a dozen of these but by the time we got organised parts prices had gone >50% and today we couldn't make a run of 10 units and even remotely be able to sell them for this.

    If you have tried to assemble a watch, you will know how difficult it is to get high levels of fit & finish in small runs like this, runs of '1' lol etc but what is impressive is these movements time extremely well - o/all this is not $200 of parts slapped together, these parts, cost more than that and the watch keeps awesome time if you are interested I can easily time it.

    The only one there is, the only one like it, a Prototype, it is #1/xx and it's not perfect, it shows a few handling marks on the 4mm leather straps, few marks on the case, a few bits of dust floating around inside the case + some marks on the hands (received the hands new, from China like this).

    Never worn, may have been scraped loosely to a watch pillow once, hard to tell, definitely never strapped to a wrist thats certain
