Seems like this U1P could be a money maker.

2 listed, one was taken down or sold last night. Robs is still up.
I don't know who had #9, but the description said it was only used twice Image

I have 2. The other appears to have sold for $2950 (3350 -335-105) on eBay. Hopefully I can get a bit more. It'd be nice to make a buck on a watch. I seem to be on the other end lately.

#9 was mine. When I received #9, my eyes were drawn to the minute hand right away. Some of the white lume bled into the black and I tried to tell myself that it should be fine. I put it away and a day later, checked it again. Nope, I would go crazy every time I would check the time. I called Rob and he was cool to have it replaced. The watch was BNIB when I sent it out.

He was extremely accommodating and the experience is great as usual.

He stated the following:

Watch companies use a “book reading test” to check these things by reviewing the watch at the distance you would read a book, but I can understand that in your line of work distance is measured at a completely different level.

The thing is, I saw the anomaly from 18-22" distance. Maybe it is just me. :shrug:

Oh, so you put it on eBay?
Did they fix the hand for you or did they say no?

So you got another U1P with a new serial, and then watchbuys sold the other one to Rob street racer for I'm guessing a discount ?

Much confusion. The seller name was Drrob so I thought it was you.

But watchbuys either sold it at a discount or they sent it back to Germany to get fixed, I assume.

No, that is mine. The other end of the spectrum.

Someone posted on this thread that they got #69.
I was so bummed, I hung up the idea of ordering one for about a week.. then made the call. I'd love to have that one.

The Pro is now officially sold out. With the exception of a few pieces awaiting delivery to DWC guys all pieces have been shipped.
That was fun.
