Marathon Navigator WW194013

So, my Damasko DC66 is soon to be shipped to the Damasko workshop in Germany to have the factory bracelet fitted. That’s going to leave me without a watch and that simply can’t happen, so what’s a guy to do? Buy another watch, right?! That said, I don’t want to spend a fortune on this watch as it will always be just a reserve watch for occasions such as these. With that in mind, I set a budget of £100 max ($160) and began to do some research. What I didn’t want to do was to spend any money at all on a watch I’d hate but £100 isn’t a lot to play with. I finally came across the Marathon WW194013 Navigator and liked the specs a lot. This would suit my purpose well and I’ve had a few Marathons in the past and have always been suitably impressed. The problem I now had was that they sell for $250-300, depending on where you shop. Luckily, I snagged a barely used one on eBay US for $140 including expedited international shipping ($115 for the watch alone) and that translated to £91 shipped. Job done!! I’ll post some pics and a review of it in late January so check back if you’re interested. Image Credit
