Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    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, T_S.

    Good start.
     
  4. GRB, I think this would go down a storm in the E-Goat Forum, the Unofficial RAF Forum...

    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.

    Thank you, Cairngorm. That will be a great help to MDN's August Scrounge!

    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?'?

    Only one day left to go, folks. Any more bids?

    Not long now, folks. Any more bids for this fine watch? At this price it will be an absolute bargain.
     
  13. £110. My message is too short. This is to lengthen my character.

    SOLD to rockpile for the bargain price of £110. Thank you for your bid.

    Thanks also to Monty417 for donating it to Hols for Heroes rather than holding it as an heirloom for his children
