    This watch is "like new" and has been occasionally worn on a different strap. The bracelet has never been worn or resized and is in new condition. I examined the watch closely and can't see any scratches or other marks on the case, bezel and bracelet. There may be a few very tiny marks on the bottom of the lugs but no scratches. I use spring bar pliers for bracelets and are very careful with my watches but very small marks are hard to avoid. There are some light hairline scratches on the case back caused by moving it around on my desk. When it sits on a flat surface, the caseback touches the surface.

    It keeps time within manufacturer's specifications. I timed it with a watch tracker app for 4 days and has an average accuracy of +6 seconds per day with regular daily wear and resting on its back at night. Accuracy of automatic watches can differ depending on the wearer's activity level and the position they are placed when not worn. So it may be different for the new owner but should give a good indication of its accuracy.

    This watch was purchased from Amazon December 6, 2017 and was sold by Amazon. It shows these come with 2-year Alpina warranty on their website. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0714FNQFF/

    I bought both a back dial and this blue/teal version of the Alpiner because I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked better. And after a few months, I still haven't made up my mind but one has to find a new owner.

    Included in the sale are the watch, bracelet, watch box and manual as shown in the pictures.

    Shipping and returns

Shipping to the UK will be US$ 50. I guarantee the watch will be as described and in working condition when you receive it and will gladly accept a return if it is not. As a private seller, I do not accept returns for any other reasons (i.e watch too big, buyer doesn't like it or changed mind and so on).

    About me

    I am a watch enthusiast / collector and enjoy trying out new watches. To keep the collection to a reasonable size, occasionally some of these watches have to find a new owner. Many of my watches only leave the comfort of their watch box a few times a month so most are in mint or very good condition. Watches offered for sale are from a smoke, child and pet-free home.

    Very minor but want to make sure I disclose everything I know and can see.
