Default MOW from shop

Just a heads up. The black dial MOW on rubber came today from the Shop. Automatic but no sapphire crystal. Still a keeper if you are looking for one. I'm sure the price will drop on the show tonight. The silver dial on blue rubber should be here tomorrow. Was hoping for sapphire, but looks like FF..
This one will be going back, got the same one from WOW on bracelet, but will keep the silver dial with blue markers.

I always regretted not buying a MOW. I got a second chance early this morning. I thought that I would never see this watch available for sale again

Got the silver dial blue rubber today and it's got Flame Fusion also. Too nice to send back, sapphire would have been cool,but they are keepers. 3 autos and one quartz in the group now, hoping to get some photos this weekend.

Thats to bad, I was all set to order that model. Glad it sings to you though, Ron. Shop needs to update their description.

Ron these are the original Man of Wars from the first generation...I own 4 of them and 8 Imperious timepieces in total....All of them are SW200 autos with sapphire crystal and super luminova....Trust me the black dial MOW that you are sending back is composed of sapphire crystal unless Imperious decided to remake the gen I models with flame fusion but I doubt it....I own the black dial and white with teal blue markers on rubber straps and 2 on bracelets in gold and SS....

Jon




I own all of these...trust me they are sapphire crystals...

Jon

Thanks John. I like them so much. As long as they are not plastic, I'm keeping them.

Find it hard to buy anything Imperious with little to no customer service backing and their reputation.
