Thanks to Monty417 I am delighted to offer for sale an Alfex Swiss RAF edition water-resistant watch. It's a very rare thing nowadays, as no more are being made. It is gold plated to a higher degree than the Gucci watches and has a SS back. The RAF logo is set on a dark face and it is a lovely slimline watch.

Something a little similar at the main suppliers in the uk (they tell me that they are impossible to find now as the military edition was ltd.)

costs £239 and that is without the logo.

It has a Government 'Permission to Produce' note with it.

It is pristine, having never been worn, only shown to friends.

Thanks, Gundulph. I might wander over there but if any arrser is already a member, would they mind putting a link?

The watch has arrived at my house today and it's rather fab.

Still at £100 with Cairngorm.

Any more bids for this very fine watch?



Why does that conjure up images of a small Arab boy, circa 1966, hissing 'you wanna buy a watch?'?

GR I've sent you a message. If you haven't received it can you send one to me. I'd just got the old system off and now it's been changed.
