Been on the hunt for one of these for awhile. Could never seem make the deal or find one in the condition I wanted. I would like to think patience paid off but I don't have any. So I guess I will call it luck. Picked this up at UPS today. Came in better than I expected. The few scratches it had were very light, looked worse in the pics from seller. Both crystals and the carbon bezel were perfect. It was missing 4 links but I already acquired the band, screws and links. No white box, just the black cardboard box and all the foam pads. I was surprised to find the CD and booklet were in untouched condition, they were not advertised as included. I dont believe the seller was familiar with the watch. 30 mins of metal tuning and a 20 min bath in the cleaner and it looks like new to the naked eye. I plan on full restore, each link to eye loop quality. I actually bought and paid for this twice. First time seller was new, accepted offer thought it was a done deal. PayPal held my funds until she shipped being a new member. She wouldn't ship until funds cleared. I backed out. 2nd time same TBII, different seller, probably a friend, location showed one city away. Got it $225 cheaper plus good timing with a 5X Ebay bucks offer. Another 100 back at the end of March. Happy day today, couldnt focus at work, looking at it all day.
