Where do I start with this piece???
I've had it in my collection for a while but have never worn it as it's in NOS condition.
Now it has SAMPLE on the back with no model number so guess it was used to display.
It does have some marks on the back case from battery replacements, but apart from that, it's in superb condition.
Very unique design and can't find any information about it, but guess it could be 90's
It looks like it never went into production, or was a limited amount made, could also be JDM market only???
The concept as it looks, is for an all day watch that's got 100m protection and has a large protective bezel.
The screw on the bezel are brass colour and are very nicely finished.
The dial is fully luminous as seen in one of the photos, thus no need to lume the hands.
Has a real depth in the dial so loads of protection.
The case is stainless steel and highly polished.
Resin strap with the buckle finished off in the same brass colour as the bezel screws.
Keeper is moulded with LORUS so a nice touch.
It has a press down case back and holds a Japan Movement.
Nice to see a crown at the 4 O'Clock position even if small, but at least it won't get knocked easily.
Yes it does work, and have kept it in a nice safe place in a box.
I would like to wear it, but feel this is best left unworn for a collector to enjoy fully.
Now I did pay silly money for it back when I bided for it, but it has given me much joy to have experience it.
I will price it at what I think it's worth, and being it's NOS and very rare will reflect this, but I won't sell it near to what I paid, think I was on a bidding frenzy that evening!
