MKii CRUXIBLE WATCH: DATE MODEL: COMPLETE SET: LIGHTLY WORN 475 shipped in CONUS, payment via PayPal
Will ship outside CONUS, but details will need to be discussed prior to completion of sale.For consideration is one lightly worn MKii watch model Cruxible with date complication. This was purchased NEW from MKii directly in June of 2019, and comes complete with the box and all original papers. There is even the original caseback sticker still attached so the model really hasn't seen much in the way of wrist time. This is a nice watch that would fit a variety of interests, aesthetics and collections. I found an in depth description of the piece online and have included the details below. Have acquired quite a few watches over the years and have decided to thin out the collection. CASE CONSTRUCTION:[COLOR=rgba(33, 33, 33, 0.7)]Cruxibles construction principle is guided by the Type A-11 issued watches but completely reconsidered for performance and serviceability. The mid-case has been strengthened and redesigned to accommodate a screw down crown providing 100 meters water resistance and modern take on the scroll lug inspired by the Patek Philippe reference 1463 and iconic CWC G10 field watch. Of all of the crown styles supplied on the watches from the war period we selected the oversized-type crown for its ease of use and singular ability to evoke the designs origins, history and purpose.[/COLOR]DIAL & HANDS: [COLOR=rgba(33, 33, 33, 0.7)]The core elements of the iconic dial have been carefully reworked to deliver a more nuanced interpretation of the war time specification and improved readability. In allusion to period USN watches the Mk II logo and depth rating are printed in gloss black on the dial to provide this information for reference only as needed. The hands have been painstakingly restyled to make them visually stronger and more functional while preserving an American aesthetic. [/COLOR]CASE BACK:[COLOR=rgba(33, 33, 33, 0.7)]The case back is styled after the decagonal case backs indicative of the waterproof versions of the A-11 specification. In a departure from the vintage design Cruxibles case back features a high-dome that is designed to allow the watch to sit more comfortably on the wrist.LUMINOUS[COLOR=rgba(33, 33, 33, 0.7)]Since the Type A-11 watches were non-luminous we incorporated the SuperLumiNova such that its presence is hidden in plain sight. Barely discernible to the unaided eye the dial is deftly coated with SLN on its four cardinal points to prioritize legibility but boldly announce itself in the dark. The fully luminous hands are constructed to recall their spartan origins through a modern approach that is more aesthetically cohesive with the dial.
