    Is there anyone here familiar with this brand? Can get this one for $440 (after 20% coupon) from STP. I notice that Amazon also selling the same watch for $50 more. Any idea how it compares to Longines? It is the only automatic watch that I currently have. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/217,58365_.html

    Well, like anything else, if you like it, buy it. Gevril is a derivative watch assembly brand. In other words, they copy other's designs, use inexpensive movements from Swatch (ETA), assemble their watches god knows where and put ridiculous price tags on them. Many brands do this, but many brands also produce a more "honest" watch.

    Thanks, I googled more and also found one or two similar comments. I'll pass on this.
