I'm getting Oriented

Post by Datsun240Z71 » June 19th 2023, 3:56am

After well over a year of watching this one on ebay, the seller and I finally came to a somewhat fair price (ok, not really, but I got what I wanted as these are apparently very hard to find in this condition on the bracelet). Full kit with strap, etc. Looks basically "as new" to me from pics with some hairline scratches on the clasp. I plan to wear it occassionally, so no big deal there. Bet I never see another.

I missed the postal lady on Saturday, and today's a holiday, so I'll pick it up tomorrow from USPS.

Seller's great pics:

A great watch. Big fan here :-)

Just picked it up from post office this morning. Watch, box, papers are all in superb condition and pictures tell the tale. Finishing is very well done, particularly the bezel details and black highlights against the stainless. Dial looks great too. Very pleased with it.

Thanks for all the positive comments.

Congratulations, on picking up a long sought after piece. I remember you posting about trying to get this one. I guess if the seller had it after a year, he might have wised up on his asking price a bit.

Thanks again all. I'm very impressed with the watch, and after over a year of wanting it, no regrets whatsoever even for the premium paid. The case, bezel, dial and bracelet are flawlessly executed.
How's the timekeeping?

Spot on over 5 days.
Does it have the 40N5A movement? Sounds as good as it's been touted to be.
Not sure myself.
I found a For Sale thread on WUS that states:
Movement: 46N4A (automatic, 22-jeweled movement)
