SEIKO PRINCE Two for One, Retro, Tank and Tonneau QuartzTWO WatchesWhen I found the black dial Tank version of the Seiko Retro Prince, I loved the window for the day windowreminded of a Japanese hand fanvery unique, and attractive.
After owning it for awhile I found a similar watch with the same style day window, this one in a Tonneau style case.
Soon after having both in hand, I went on a downsizing kick, and am getting out of the watch collecting hobby.
So, I have for sale two Seiko quartz watches, both very rare, both running fine, both with new straps, and nothing else.
The black dial watch has been worn a lot, the white dial, not so muchcheck the specific descriptions below. TankDial:

seconds, minutes and hours hands on center post.
All function correctly and accuratelyCondition:
Case has clearly been used, with obvious marks on case, and a couple of very small abrasions on edges of the crystal where it meets the case.
Because the abrasions are right at the seam they are not very noticeable (in particular, near 2 oclock, and a little bit on the left edge as well), and never bothered me when I wore themthe fact that they are very hard to see in the pictures speak for how little they distract.
The straps are still produced today, and come in brown or blackI just bought a new black one.TonneauDial:

It does not appear to have been worn much if at allI bought it in the aftermarket, and the guy I bought it from said it was unused but had a jeweler replace the batteryin doing so, a couple of noticeable marks were made on the left side of the caseagain, really not noticeable, but they are there.
Otherwise everything looks and runs very nicelyits strap appears to have had little if any used.Functions:
This is where this watch really is impressiveit has day (the Japanese fan style window), date (sub-dial on right), gmt function (lower dial near 6), seconds, minutes and hours hands on center post.
All function correctly and accurately
I am selling them both togetherone sale, one price, one shipmentI will NOT sell them separately.I am asking $250 for the pair, or Best Reasonable Offerthis is less than you could buy one for used, if you could find one.
The final price covers all costs, including free and insured EMS shipping to anywhere in the world, with tracking. SHIPPING IS FREE!!
Shipping is via EMS, includes tracking and insurance, and is FREE with purchase price. US customs just about never assesses any fees for used watches under $5,000, so there should be no problems in that regard--based on experience--however, if any fees were to be incurred, they likely would be quite minimal but would be the buyer's responsibility. Based on past experience, shipping is often quicker AND safer than standard domestic delivery services.
I have great feedback, with extensive experience shipping watches to anywhere in the world with ZERO PROBLEMS to date. Search timefleas in the Watch Deals section of the Sales Corner, and you will see that I have more the 60 (!) successful transactions here.
I also have more than 3000 positives on the bay ("pmskaer").
Let me know if you have any questions.A note that I include with ALL of my watch sales:
This watch is guaranteed authentic and comes in excellent cosmetic and working condition (with issues, if any, duly noted, above)please review the pictures carefully as they are part of the description. I cannot guarantee time accuracy for watches other than to say that they were working fine and are guaranteed to run. Keep in mind that the process of shipping can sometimes affect the timing/accuracy of watches, and they may need to be adjusted upon receipt. As such, though they likely will not require it, I recommend that all used automatic watches be serviced upon receipt. The watch has not been tested for pressure or water resistance. PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE PURCHASING OR MAKING AN OFFER.
