TL;DR - SOLD
OK people, as you're likely all Bremont fans this needs no introduction, but I thought I'd bundle up a few of the goodies I've accumulated and see if anyone fancies a job lot or a fabulous "starter kit"!

I've never moved on a watch before so be kind, my motivation is simply a change of tastes as my journey down the path continues and I'm hankering something a little smaller.
From my ownership of this watch it didn't change date at midnight - I thought I could put up with it but my OCD got the better of me, so off to Henley it went and all is well.

While it was away (albeit a very short and impressive turnaround by HQ) I picked up a smaller size watch and realised they suit my sparrow wrists better so I'm "downsizing" quite literally!
The watch is, to my eye, in top notch condition.

The buckle has picked up a few light swirls as I'm a desk nerd I guess, not sure you can make them out.

The "Kevlar" strap is the original style, they were all prone to picking up a bit of fluff / fraying at the spring bar hole - this one is no different.
The Supermarine rubber is again, the original "stiff style" strap - it's been worn but is in good nick.
The deployment clasp is hardly worn - within two minutes of trying it I realised it's not for me, it's been in a drawer for a while, seems fine.

The watch is bang on two years old, warranty expires August 2015, timekeeping is great (although I haven't tested it since its return from HQ) all box, papers, leather roll, strap changing tool included.

Thanks for looking, hope it's a reasonable price for the lot as a bundle, asking 2,850 bank transfer or PayPal, buyer picks up Paypal fees, I'll fund RMSD delivery in the mainland UK.
If it goes quickly no quibbles I'll throw in an unused matching keyring too!

Any questions, please ask.
As I said, please be kind - never sold a watch before - it's an emotional time! ;-)

Not looking for trades, but this doesn't have to go as a complete set if anyone wants to make an offer for the individual bits & bobs.

If its only two years old it will still have 12 months warranty left will it not?

Ok, having got home from a weekend visiting relatives I've double-checked the paperwork and the Warranty Card purchase date is definitely August 31st 2012 so as everyone has convinced me the ALT1-C has a three year warranty there's another whole year left! Thanks to everyone who pointed that out, I was never the shiniest coin in the fountain ;-)
