Please note: The manufacturer has ceased production of the Mallard watches. Availability is limited. At this writing (10/1/2017), this watch is available only with a BLACK DIAL. There are no more white dials available.
Offered for sale is a MALLARD Extreme Chronograph wrist watch, BRAND NEW with instructions and warranty paperwork. If you are unfamiliar with the MALLARD watch brand, it is because Mallard watches are not sold by mass merchandisers or chain jewelry stores. Rather, they are sold by independent jewelers and watchmakers like myself. A durable watch designed for serious outdoor activities, this watch is designed and manufactured by J. Borel & Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of watchmakers’ and jewelers’ supplies. Borel designed this watch to enable watchmakers and independent jewelers to offer their customers a high-quality, very durable, competitively priced watch that offers a much better value for the money than many famous-name, mass-market watches found in department stores and chain jewelry stores. This watch features a SOLID STAINLESS STEEL SCREWBACK CASE that will retain its beauty for decades, a MATCHING SOLID STAINLESS STEEL LINK BRACELET with flip-lock clasp and extension piece for wearing the watch over a diving suit, a crown guard and SCREW-DOWN CROWN to help keep water out, a SYNTHETIC SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL to resist accidental breakage, a FIXED OUTER TACHYMETRE BEZEL, a super-accurate SWISS ETA QUARTZ CHRONOGRAPH MOVEMENT with 60-second, 30-minute, and tenths-of-second recording functions, a DATE display, and a black dial with luminous hands and hour markers (Note: As of this writing, only the black dial is available. The white dial is no longer available). The hour hand can be set independently of the minute hand (a useful feature when crossing time zones).Water resistant to 200 meters (666 feet). Size: 40mm diameter (without crown). If you were to compare this watch to many famous-brand watches costing up to five times as much, you will see that the Mallard offers far more watch for the money. (Many brand-name watches, whose names I cannot mention here, typically have base metal cases that corrode easily, thin glass crystals that break easily, non-screwdown crowns that tend to let water in, and cheap, throwaway movements that do not last and are not cost-effective to repair. I am speaking from my own experience as a watchmaker.) The Mallard watch will surely outlast many famous-make watches several times over. The Mallard watch comes with a 1-YEAR FACTORY WARRANTY. And, should your Mallard watch require service after the warranty period, it can be serviced by any qualified independent watchmaker (This is not the case with many famous brand watches, which need to be sent back to the factory for service). If you have questions about this watch, or about my watch and clock repair services, please call me at 386-761-0077 or email me. This watch sells elsewhere for $299.99 or more. You can own this one for only $249.99.
