Those are reflections in the first picture, not large scratches!
This watch has sold on another site as of 12-5-12 but I have many more great vintage Star Wars watches to chose from!!!
***** Well, here it is, a great rare find! A lot of Star Wars watch collectors might not know this version exists. This is the rare all black 1977 Texas Instruments watch. What makes this one so different, other than being black, is it has the Vader with flying ships with colored exhaust above him. The other TI watches have Star Wars in that area. Please continue to read on. The watch face and band are in really nice condition on this one. Problem is the back, someone cracked the O ring I guess you'd call it and it doesn't seal completely, but you can make it still connect to the back of the watch in an area as you can see by the pictures. I could put it on my wrist easily without it falling off. If you have one of these in worse condition with a good battery cover backing, you can just change it out. Finding one of these in perfect condition is very very difficult. I have one of these watches loose with a perfect back and will consider offers on that one, but I'm offering this one at a discounted price because of the back. There is also a round fanned out looking piece that was in the battery compartment, it's probably to ground the batteries/provide a tighter fit to the back of the watch that I forgot to show in the pictures, it will come with too.
The watch face has scratches but no damage to it and it still looks very nice. It also originally came with 10 stickers, they have all fallen off the wax paper, and 8 of them are there, missing two. The paperwork and a display box is also included to display the watch. I do not have any batteries to test the watch so it is being sold as a collectible only, but as the battery compartment is clean, it should work.
These old TI watches are great in that the clock doesn't stay on the screen the whole time, only comes on when you press the time button. The same thing for seconds and I believe it can show the date as well. A wonderful collectible from TI and Star Wars, don't miss out!
Our items may be listed on another auction site as well, so whoever wins it first has 7 days to pay for the item. After that time, the 2nd winner, (if there is one), will get a chance to own the item next. If neither pay, the item will be relisted. If something sells elsewhere, we will put a note on that auction here or take the auction off until the time has passed for payment to arrive. We would not keep a listing going if it has sold without letting others know it may not be available. We sometimes have more than one of the same, and if we do, the auction will specify that information.

Once you receive your item we'd love to have you leave feedback for us so others know that are customers are completely satisfied with their buying experience. Once an order has been placed with us, we will receive an email showing how many items are in the order and which delivery method you would like (if that choice is available for that item). It will include your shipping address and should also have a working telephone number in case of any problems and we need to contact you before the item can be shipped out.
We ship priority thru the U.S. postal service and at the current postal rates. Insurance is required for all orders over 20.00. If the buyer wants insurance for items under 20.00, it must be included with payment, which is an extra 2.00. Delivery confirmation is mandatory on all orders and tracking numbers will be emailed to the buyer when item has been shipped. Insurance is already included for items sold over 20.00! If we are over on shipping costs, we will refund the difference (minus H or PP fees) back to you after your order has shipped!
Priority shipping is based on address and weight and there will be a small minimum handling fee of .50 to a maximum of 1.50 for the first item, and that is based on materials used for the size of the item (sm .50 md 1.00 lg 1.50). Each additional item will be charged by actual weight.***** We do not charge high shipping to make a profit, we believe that is unfair to the customer.*****
