Here is a rare watch that caused quite a stir back around 2008-2009. It is a full kit Prometheus CR1. The watch is in excellent condition with minor wear marks on the clasp, bracelet swirls. For those of you that know this watch, you know that it is getting harder and harder to find.
There is one problem with the watch that I have tolerated during my ownership. The watch winds and keeps great time. However, if you wind the crown by hand, you will feel a minor slip time to time. I have had watchmaker take a look and he guaranteed it is not in the movement. I guarantee the same since it has been running flawless for years. The slip is actually at the crown to stem attachment. The slip can be fixed/removed but would mean a generic crown and I wanted to keep the Prometheus signed crown. When manually winding the watch, if you keep slight pressure outward on the crown, it does not slip. As mentioned, it is a minor nuance I decided to live with.
