Glycine Incursore Black Jack Small Second

I was offered this watch recently. It is the Glycine Incursore Black Jack Small Second. This watch was introduced in 2008 and is the second release of the Black Jack series after the successful launch in Basel 2007. 

The Incursore range of watches is named after the elite Italian divers from World War 2. The Incursore (raiders or commando) were the guys that rode the SLC (short distance submarines), where they would approach enemy ships and plant explosives on the hull of those ships.

Anyway, I am still out on if I would get the watch. The price I was offered is good (very good), but I am not sure if the package is complete. The watch is a limited edition run of 350 pieces and comes in a nice box with 2 straps. At the time I saw the watch, the box was missing but I was assured that it was available. The watch is new and not pre-loved.

The watch, reference 3878, is large, 46 mm in diameter and has a PVD coated stainless steel case. Basically the watch is rendered in black and white with red highlights. The second hand (sub-dial at 6 o'clock) and the number 21 (of the 24 hour hour track on the outer ring) is rendered in red. So are the minute index markers between 20 and 21. The rotor is engraved with the Black Jack decoration. Date display is at the 6 o'clock position.
