Dear fellow Risti's offered is this Panerai 177 i-series in very good condition. Complete set, double boxed, NEW unworn (except around the watch pillow) croc strap. Rubber strap is 90-92% condition. COSC, manuals, polishing cloth, warranty card all included.
Keeping excellent time - runs several seconds fast per day.
I think my photos will show the condition well, yet I will mention 3 areas that keep this from being LNIB - in the interest of full honesty here. One case mark between the two lower lugs should be well seen in one photo. One very subtle bezel mark at 12 o'clock seen below; it is hard to see. One superficial very minor rub to the crystal between the 10 and 11 o'clock markers right on the edge of the crystal - which is very hard to see, yet I was able to capture it in the photo below (if you have a hard time seeing it, that is because generally you will need a loupe to find it).
Crown guard is firm. Everything else is fantastic.
Many references available.
