I'm selling a very slightly used JAPANESE version Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster Captain Poindexter limited edition model watch, #243 out of 1000. The big difference between the USA and Japanese version is the amount of tritium in the watch; the US has 80 while the Japanese version has only 32 and states "T25" on the dial.

This is actually the main reason I am selling the watch; I bought it used from a friend of mine who got it from Japan and I had no idea there was this difference; I wanted this version specifically for the ridiculous amount of tritium in it. It would be cost prohibitive for me to send it back to him so I'd rather just sell it so I can get a proper Spacemaster X-Lume or if I'm lucky, another Captain Poindexter edition.

This watch has barely any signs of use, I've provided several high resolution images for you to inspect the condition. It will come in the original Ball "timebomb" watch case, complete with everything that came from the factory: scale model of the space shuttle, the two flat blade screw drivers, the helper tube, the Ball rubber watch band, the COSC certification card, and the filled out and stamped International Warranty card with original purchase date of 1/29/15.
