NOS,original box AND a flat box for keeping the genuine, heavy crocodile leather band pristine. Watchismo said he'd be willing to wet-nurse one of these - ouch! :x It is for sale....

Thanks Richard - not something I would normally pick up, but it was absolutely untouched and works perfectly, so I figured it was worth buying and holding. It will make some collector very happy some day. :-)

FYI - one of these sold last year through an auction house for $7400 USD. But I understand that is a bit of an aberration.
