Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original box and papers. The watch comes paired on its original stainless steel Oyster bracelet with folding clasp, fit is only to a 6 1/2inch wrist. The watch is from November 2020 and is sold in unworn condition. The watch comes with its original manufacturer warranty.
I personally feel WMT offers an incredible watch at an affordable price and do it in the design of the watches most of us can only ever dream of owning, whilst sure they won't be for everyone, but that is ok, I personally own one so we know where I stand with them.
