OT: Christopher Ward C70 Brooklands COSC *price drop*

Finally secured one of these after selling my first one years ago, only to realize my tastes have changed. And this is after I bought a green Mini- go figure.
I feel like these are overshadowed by the more popular C60s so I want to introduce it properly. Each gran prix C70 was finished in the national color of 6 countries. Green, or more specifically British Racing Green, represents (you guessed it) Britain. Brooklands (if I remember my F1 history) was where the British GP was held before it was moved over to Brands Harch and then Silverstone, where it has been for some time.
While there are a number of C70 models, the brooklands is one of only a few that got the COSC certification. Here are some specs I pulled off of a WUS review from 2010:
Limited edition of 200 pieces
Diameter: 42mm
Height: 10.7mm
Weight: 90g
Case: 316L Stainless steel
Caliber: ETA 251.232 COSC (HAQ- high accuracy quartz)
This kit contains:
brooklands number 61/200 watch
Outer cardboard black box
Inner black presentation box
COSC certification paperwork
instruction manual
original receipt and letter from Christopher Ward
CW polishing cloth
Extra NATO and Green suede strap
Condition is excellent. The strap shows minor wear and is on a polished CW deployment. The 9:00 side of the case has a very faint vertical mark that I cant even get to focus in the light. Other than that it looks perfect.
$600 obo shipped in the conus. Would be interested in trading up but would like to do a 2 for 1 with this and my rare white Helson Sharkmaster 1000 (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fs...p-5178543.html). I can add cash if needed. Interested in something like a Tudor or Sinn.
