I think this is a gorgeous timepiece, but it gets ZERO wrist time. Since I'm retired, I don't have use for such a nice watch.

Here are the specs from ShopNBC: J177417

http://www.shopnbc.com/PRODUCT/?track=-20301;&familyid=J177417&cm_re=Search-_-family-_-N



Strap:
Leather
Movement: Swiss ETA 1/60 Split Quartz Chronograph
Crystal: Mineral
Crown: Push/pull w/ function pushers
Clasp: Dual Deployant
Strap Measurements: 10" L x 26mm W
Case Measurements: 50mm L x 47mm W
Water Resistance: 10 ATM - 100 meters - 330 feet
Model Numbers: Silver-tone: IN2237




The watch is "Mint" and it easily rated at 98%. I received this watch in a trade, but never wore it. It looks like the original owner has not worn it as well. However, let's call this 98% and you can be pleasantly surprised.


The watch comes with paperwork and Box.


In return, my preferences are Swiss Made or Swiss movement, a case size over 45mm (>47mm, is best), auto movement (a multi-Jeweled quartz movement is OK), with a metal bracelet. However, I have recently accepted trades that I wasn't necessarily looking for. I would prefer a 1:1 trade if possible on this watch, however, I have 2 other watches up for trade and would consider a "package deal" if warranted.

Here is the actual watch up for trade (the only time the watch has been on my wrist) . . .

Believe it or not, I just turned down someone for a RD. The RD has never been a series that I could comfortably wear. I like the looks, but it wouldn't get wrist time. :(

I'll look at your pics and keep you up to date. :)

Loved the look of mine too George hated the fit. Now I don't own it anymore. Great looking watches if they were just more comfortable.

Let me chime in on the RD, I had the same issue. Loved the look hated the fit. Finally got rid of mine to somebody that appreciates RD's.
