Bremont MBII Green - Full package

I have decided to sell my MBII in order to part-fund another purchase. If the other watch sells first, I will probably withdraw this from sale. This watch is also for sale elsewhere.

I purchased this watch new from my local AD in March 2012. Since then, it has been worn with care as part of my collection. The watch is in great condition and is fitted to an almost-new black leather Bremont strap.

I have a reputation for taking great care of my watches, and since this Bremont is designed for tough conditions, it is hardly surprising that the case is virtually unmarked. Under well lit magnification, I can see a couple of tiny scratches on the back of the lugs, and one or two really tiny marks on the bezel, but otherwise, I would say this is watch is in fantastic shape.

Operationally, everything works as expected. I have not tested the timekeeping recently, but when I remove it from the winder (say after a couple of weeks of rest), it rarely needs adjustment of more than half a minute or so. The roto-click internal bezel - operated by the lower crown - moves in precise, satisfying, single minute intervals.

In addition to the hardened case, one of the great features of this watch is the crystal/AR coating, which I would say is as good as anything I've seen.

On top of this, of course, is the anti-magnetic faraday cage and anti-shock movement mount.

I decided to choose the green barrel variant as a nice balance between the extremes of the anthracite barrel (quiet) and the orange barrel (loud). Of course, the barrel can be changed as part of the Bremont service.

This watch comes complete with all packaging, the leather Bremont watch wallet, all paperwork (original receipt, valuation report, certificate of origin, COSC certificate, user manual etc), and two additional straps.

The two additional straps are an unused military-style velcro strap (GGB style) and the Bremont 'Kevlar' strap. The Kevlar strap is slightly frayed at the lugs (a common complaint with this strap), but perfectly serviceable. The buckle from the leather strap can be swapped to the Kevlar.

The new price of this watch is now 3,395 - see http://www.thewatchgallery.com/shop/bremont-martin-baker-mbii-green-men-s-watch-mbii-gr.html

The price is 2500 Reduced to 2300, which includes Royal Mail Special Delivery to mainland addresses only. Other destinations considered.

Payment by Bank Transfer or Paypal (buyer pays fees).
