    The pandenmic gives us some time to think about the things we have. So I realized that I have too many watches and decided to sell some of them.
    First one is an Excelsior Park chronograph with the sought after Tuxedo dial. Those watches come in different configurations. Some with lume, some without. Some with lumed hands, some without. Some with round pushers, some with square etc.So it is difficult to say which configuration is "correct" but I believe the watch to be original and correct.
    A good read about the Tuxedo dial can be found at https://www.fratellowatches.com/tbt-the-excelsior-park-tuxedo-dial-chronograph/


    Case
    The steel case is 35.5mm which gives the watch a nice wrist presence if you don't have huge paws (my wrist size is about 18.5cm). Edges of the lugs are sharp but I believe that the case has seen a very professional polishing in the past. The lug size is 18.5mm so that a 19mm strap sits tight and 18mm has a bit space. But both sizes work.

    Pushers and Crown
    Pushers are neither square nor olive but with rounded edges. They are in very good shape without much wear. The crown is imho original but has a small ding, please look at the pics.
    .
    Dial
    The duotone dial is completely original and in perfect shape. As mentioned above it is a so-called Tuxedo dial with a hooked seven which is typical for Excelsior Park. Dial is not lumed.

    Hands
    The stick hands are blued and in near perfect shape. The blueing looks beautiful in natural light. The configuration is uncommon, but as I own another Tuxedo dial with blued stick hands, I am confident that they are original.

    Movement
    The caliber is a nice EP4 (if I am not mistaken) with stripes de Geneve. It was serviced in 2018 by my watchmaker and runs stable within about +/-5s a day. My watchmaker could confirm that there are no signs of a redial on the back of the dial.

    Strap
    The watch comes with an unworn strap of your choice. See the pics below. Some pics show a black strap with white stitching with which I used to wear the watch. This strap is not included as it is worn. If you like the strap I can recommend the maker.

    Price
    A similar but bigger military issud watch with lume on hands and dial is currently for sale for nearly eight thousand Euros. My watch is not the same league so you can get it for about the half: 4000 Euros OBRO shipped to your door.
    If you are interested don't hesitate to contact me and discuss the price. I am open for reasonable offers.

    Terms
    The sale is final unless the watch was grossly misrepresented.
    Feel free to ask any question you have. If you encounter any mistakes I made in the description, I am happy to correct them.

    References
    This is my first watch sale here on OF. Before, I was simply hoarding and have bought several watches here on OF (and certainly elsewhere).
    However, I have met some members her in persion who know that I am real and reliable.

    Thanks OF for the space and the opportunity to list the watch!

    And now, let the photos talk...

    Thanks for your kind words!

    You know it is for sale ;)

    Some additional information:
    As you might have guessed (because of the price in Euros), the watch is located in Europe, more precisely in Germany.
    A face to face deal is also possible and welcome.

    Indeed it is, but unfortunately it is way out of my budget at the moment.

    Seems as it is a slow selling season currently.
    So you might be lucky and find the watch still for sale when you have the funds. ;)

    Obviously, I am not the daily bumper, so this sale needs to be resurrected.

    It really is very nice and you took me to school as I am not familiar with the brand. Sorry I can’t make an offer but at least I can give you a compliment

    Many thanks for the kind words!
    Already four weeks since the last BUMP...

    And below the reason why I decided to sell the EP: I don't need two of them...

    A great piece with a wonderful, unusual dial and a great movement.
    Luckily I already have one similar, with a white face, otherwise I would have been in serious trouble here...
    GLWS!

    Three weeks are over, so again a gentle bump.

    Thank you very much!
    What I like about the movement is that the reset button just needs to be touched to reset, no need for hard pushing.

    Thank you guys!
    However, despite all the compliments and some nibbles, still no bites.

    Think of the upcoming Christmas season, less thank 4 months to go!
