Post FS:Record WW2 Dirty Dozen WWW, Esdee/bgwvd/vdo/binbin WL
Yo ho ho,

You know the drill. Lots of beautiful watches around that just aren't getting appreciated enough. Fighting the urge to horde, so let the purge begin.

All prices include fees, shipping, pp etc; as per usual no returns, and all lost packages/customz issues are on the buyer. I am open for (most) any questions. These are some top of the pops pieces that I wont trade for shit, so think about it first before asking.

Located in Germany, but will ship almost anywhere.

Thanks for looking.

Esdee WL case. Binbin blued steel hands. Lumed/fitted by me, bigwaved painted dial by ross, swiss 6497 ticking strong. Custom 1 hole strap by (i think G) awesome bronze buckle by elias. I can punch a few holes if wanted. Ticks great. Keep time. The crown is athaya and does have some slippage when winding. Not an issue that bugged me enough to replace it and pretty common with these. Chapter ring in plated bronze by...?

Lightly aged case/plexi etc

47mm

Asking 925$

Sold DSN BPFF. Case Sterilized and re-blasted in an awesome small bead finish by a great member. Hugs to you. Swiss 2824. Ticking awesome. Keeping time. Dial/hands redone by big dazza. His work is awesome. I have rarely seen better work.



And of course....the record 1945 british raf www dirty dozen commisioned nazi hunter. Enough of this fake patina, this watch was in world war 2. Enough said. Looks awesome. Keeps time. Cool patina. Movement is super clean. Matching serials. Milspec engravings. If you have questions I have quite a bit of knowledge about these. ;))

36mm

Asking 850$

Let me know if you need any other pics, info, etc;

Thanks, Dave does great work. I wanted to stay away from any P engravings. I like it better incgnito. I also think it makes it more conceivable as a piece to wear.
