Thanks. Anyone else have thoughts to share on this?
I bought one as a gift, and it's a good looking utilitarian watch. It doesn't look cheap at all and anyone not specifically looking for it wouldn't know any better. As long as you're clear you're not getting any kind of collector's piece or investment, I say go for it.
I just inherited this vintage Lorus from my uncle. It apparently cost him more than a $200. Today you can't give them away on Ebay.
Just got a Seiko SKX007 and I'm really happy with it so far, it looks and feels like a much more expensive watch and keeps good time. I was originally going to buy a Laco B-uhr but reading the posts of a Seiko geek on a local forum got me hooked. I'll get a flieger type watch for my next one though.
The picture is from the lab so labcoat/nitril glove combo.
That's an improvement. Good choice.
What do people think of rotary. I got my eye on this one. Do you think it is any good, or looks any good.?
agree. i LIKE the new band look!
what kind of watch is in post #759 of this thread, and how much?
That's a Sea-Gull 1963 Chinese Air Force Chrono. Very iconic watch, and quite available. About US$350 or so.
I can't decide between this and a Strela Cosmo, first watch in space.
Both awesome. Both ~ 38 - 39mm, so wearable by the smaller guy.
Quick question for the guys that have Sea-Gull automatic watches. Do they also have a mechanical wind feature? Meaning, can I wind the watch manually, even though it is an automatic? I'm looking at buying an M170S. Looks like a pretty good watch for the price.
Thanks in advance.
Yes, my M186S does this
I didn't really like the leather band I posted earlier, now I'm switching between a brown and a blue zulued nato. What do you guys think?
