it finally arrived, the aubergine diamaster!
the seller describen it as unused. and i must say, thats the only right part of the description: its absolute NOS!!!!
first of all, the seller offered it as a Citicen/Rado watch with a dark case.

he has sent some mopre pics with the same bad quality, but he said: itīs not a Citicen, itīs a certina automatic with the rado letters below.
i thought: this must be a Certina Diamaster! i tried a bid on it and won it, i was the only bidder...
it arrived today, enjoy the first pics:

inside the caseback the Certina signs:
As you can see, the case and the sapphire crystal is absolute flawless, also the dial, hands and markers are perfect:
finally a wristy of this big find:
thanks for looking,
