New Donna Karan New York DKNY NY-4179 Polished Steel Ladies Watch Leather Strap

Crazy 99p start price - and NO RESERVE...

I recently acquired some New, Old Stock watches from a Jeweller who is clearing out some of his old stock.

This lot is for a superb Ladies watch, the NY-4129, from designer Donna Karan, New York (DKNY). Quite unusual, with the crown (winder) set above the 12 o'clock position, and with a 'widescreen' look, this elegant watch is cased in a slightly curved, highly polished steel case, with very effective 'long lugs'. It has an eyecatching Silver dial, and is all set on a quality Black leather strap. This has a dressy and sophisticated look, perfect for a glamorous night out!

This watch is new and unworn, but it has been on display. I've had a good look at it, and it's pretty much perfect - there are a few very fine 'micro-swirls' on the mirror-polished steel, which are impossible to avoid, but to all intents and purposes, it's in as-new condition. The lovely black leather strap has been fastened around a display cushion, but also looks basically new.

It has a lovely Silvered Dial, with Steel spear hands, the DKNY logo and a horizontal stripe, both in applied steel across the dial, but no markers or numbers, for that stylish, minimalist look.

The DKNY-signed leather strap is lovely quality, generously sized, and will comfortably fit up to a 7.00" wrist (180mm).

The watch has a Mineral Crystal (which is extremely scratch resistant), and is in perfect, new condition.

The Crown (winder) is set above the 12 o'clock position, in steel.

Caseback Wording: 'DKNY, Solid Stainless Steel, 230504, NY-4179, 3 ATM/30 Meters CE'. The caseback is the snapback type, and the original factory seal is still in place.

I wasn't sure how long the watch had been on display - so I fitted a new battery just before Christmas, having checked and cleaned the contacts. It's running beautifully, keeping precise time.

My jeweller has tried without success to locate the original box, though of course the watch will be securely packaged for delivery.

The watch is very easy to set and adjust - pull out the crown to set the hands, then push the crown back in to resume normal running.

Timekeeping - excellent - I fitted a new battery just before Christmas, it's keeping perfect time.

Measures: 32.5mm across, 39mm lug to lug, 6mm thick, but curved, so a 9mm total depth, weight 35g.

Other - This is a lovely ladies watch, elegant and extremely dressy. The Mirror-Polished steel case, which is long and curved, and the 'widescreen' silver dial look very smart, especially in contrast with the rich black leather strap. The dial itself is very minimalist, with the 'DKNY' signature and stripe in applied steel, and no numbers or markers. The quality quartz movement is keeping extremely accurate time (as I mentioned, I've fitted a new high quality battery). This is an ex-display model, but is in practically as-new condition, with perhaps the lightest micro swirls on the steel, but really nothing obvious or nasty. The watch still has its factory seal on the backcase. I don't have the original box, but I will ensure the watch is securely packaged for delivery.

This model has been in production until quite recently, and is still advertised at its Recommended Retail Price of £119.99 . Even so, I'm starting my auction at just 99p , with NO RESERVE - you could get an fabulous DKNY Designer Ladies watch, in as-new condition, at a real bargain price!

I've tried to be as accurate as I can in the description of this watch, please read the description and look at the photographs carefully. You should study the detailed photographs, - it will be enable you to evaluate the cosmetic condition far more accurately than I can describe it.

Postage for this item, packed weight approx 70 grams, and which will be securely packaged, will be £1.98 by First Class Post (1-2 days delivery time). If you would prefer guaranteed Next Day Special Delivery, I can do that too (£5.85) . I always aim to despatc...
