Up for sale is a beautiful Stowa Seatime Prodiver COSC in black. I received this one in a trade, and even though it's a remarkable beast, and this copy is a beautiful specimen, I don't think it'll get any wear in my collection. Someone else should enjoy it.
Many of you already know the Prodiver. If you need your mind refreshed, check out this great review from Worn & Wound

This copy isn't just the 1000m Prodiver, it's the COSC version, with a COSC-certified 2824-2 chronometer movement ticking inside.
The COSC certificate is from 2008; the watch warranty card says it's from 2009, and I don't know its service history. So this sale is AS-IS.
That said, it is working great. I wore it on my wrist for 24 hours and it was about +3 spd. In my watchbox, it was nearly dead on. But I can't guarantee that performance.
The only performance issue I would note is that when winding the watch with the crown, the crown would feel like it would slip. Maybe one in every 20 winds.
The watch also comes with a baggie with a mainspring and a couple of gears. I don't know if that means the mainspring has been replaced or it needs to be replaced. But, with these questions, I think I've priced the watch accordingly.
I can't believe how good of shape the watch is aesthetically. I see nothing on the crystal, no major scratches on the case, and just light desk diving marks on the bracelet links. There's one small nick in the bezel at about 11:30, and a couple of small marks on the sides of the case. I think that's it. But please look at the pics and ask questions if you have any.
The watch will come with the bracelet (currently sized for about a 6.75" wrist -- I could barely fit it on my 7" wrist in the last microadjust hole) plus 6 links. It comes with the warranty card and booklet, the COSC certificate, a Stowa leatherette case, and the metal, industrial style locking case. No other straps or bracelets.
For this, I'm asking $865, with payment via PayPal and shipping in the U.S. via USPS Priority Mail, all fees included.
I have very good feedback here, selling and buying dozens of watches. I hope you have good feedback too.
I'm willing to ship internationally if you have good feedback here, you pay all extra costs, and you accept the risk of loss if anything happens to the watch during shipment.
Thanks for looking! PM me with offers to buy!
Onto the pics!
