Cleaning up a bit, same old "way too many watches" listing.
All prices are paypaled and shipped in the US, international ok but you pay the extra ride.

With Domed Saphire Crystal!
100 meter water resist.
42mm case, 22mm lugs, 13mm thick (w domed sapphire)
Box and papers and all links Light scuffs all over.
I bought this to replace my broken one, had a domed sapphire crystal swapped into it and wore it hard for 2 weeks, but then repaired my old one. I was going to keep this one as a "spare" but that is silly. For what it's worth this kept astonishingly good time for the two weeks I wore it.

Making hard decisions about which watches to keep-
I adore the dial on this one but Ive only worn it a few times and it falls short of my personal criteria for: No date (yeah, I use the date function on my watches everyday, I dont have a head for numbers) I find the lugs a little pointy, for my tastes, would prefer them a little broader but this really fits the part as a classic field watch profile. And the last one will be the most controversial: Im switching to all, or almost all, quartz.
This NH35 runs about -4spd.
Hand Winding.
Screw Down Crown.
Sapphire Crystal.
See Through Case Back.
Signed rotor and clasp.
10atm water resistance.
Excellent Lume.
Supple minimal leather strap (very nice leather).
This strap is the long at 124/92mm, on my wrist this brings the clasp nicely inboard since with most straps Im on the last two holes and the clasp sits on the outside of my arm.
I run at about 7.5 for my watches.
Im not going to be sad if it doesnt sell since I love the design on this, but- its pragmatic to at least put it out there in case anyone is looking.

Quartz 100 meter water resist, case back says "sapphire crystal" but I presume that is sapphire coated?????? Although it doesn't show ANY scratches on the crystal so maybe it is sapphire.... Original strap in very good shape. No box, no papers, no provenance. Case back is badly scratched like it spent its life sitting on it's back? 43mm case, 22mm lugs, 10.5mm thick.
Orient Flight ER2A001B $85

Screw down crown!
Type B aviator dial.
100 meter water resist.
Pvd, 42mm case, 22mm Lugs, 11.9mm thick
Box and papers
Never wore this one, I ended up buying two of them with the idea of doing a yobokies pilot conversion but the lack of hacking kinda made me less enthused and it never really looked right to me the way it sits as-is. Since then they disappeared from the market and folks are looking for them, feel stupid leaving it sit in my watch drawer that being the case.
Original strap shows basically no wear, looks to not have been worn with the watch since there are scuffs on the case and one ding through Pvd at 11:45 show/pointed out in the pics.
And last for now:
Filson Scout xShinola PVD $220

Quartz (gold plated Ronda movement) Screw down crown. 200 Meter water resist. Saphire Cyrstal. Screw bar lug pins. Bidirectional bezel (smooth and tight, no free-play) This one has scuff at the 12, pointed out in the pics.
I know many watch folks are not a fan of these, but thems are the ones who have not held them in person. Stellar watch, this is actually a duplicate/backup of another one I have- but feel silly with two of the same.
It is a large watch, at 46mm but wears much more like a 44. They are described as a 46mm watch but measure 45.8mm, but only at the bezl, the watch case is 44mm. Described as 13mm thick, but actually 12.7mm, and that is only because of the crystal that stands proud of the case, case is only 10.1mm thick.
I am actually a huge fan of these watches, with this being my favorite model, so much so that I went overboard and collected a bunch of them but I'm having a real hard time parting with any of them, I put together a fairly comprehensive look at them here:
