Purchased brand new by our customer in October 2020. Our Customer wore the watch out of the store and then decided it was too big for his wrist. (His loss is your gain!) While this watch is in unworn condition, (and please check out our detailed photos of actual watch), we were helpless in preventing the high humidity of South Florida from impacting the bronze case. As a result, this watch shows slight signs of the bronze finish starting to patina -- something that is to be expected of this watch and totally unavoidable. The bronze case is a unique feature not found on many other IWC watches that we think makes this watch one of the coolest IWC watches ever made! This watch has a living breathing finish that will age and change color and patina with age and exposure to different climates. And of course just like the Panerai Bronzo watches, this watches' original Bronze finish can be restored by leaving the watch submerged in a solution of lemon juice and seltzer water or you can just coat it with ketchup! This is ABSOLUTELY the new watch experience at a SecondTime Price!!!
