    http://www.seagull1963.com/ You can also search for Seagull 1963 on eBay and elsewhere. The HK Seagull website also carries it from time to time.

    Hmmm should I go with the plain blue handed Parnis or with this baby? (not necessarily directed at you)

    Well, the Seagull 1963 original is a genuine Chinese Air Force watch, and is much more difficult to get hold of, and is usually priced at ~$350-$400.

    The plain blue Parnis is usually less than $100, and quite easily available.

    Seagull without a doubt for me. You will like this watch. And Metlin is right, supply won't last. [​IMG]

    Those look a lot like zulu or nato straps The best ones I ever bought was from this english dude who owns a site called timefactors - I don't think he has such flashy colours though

    Yes thanks, I meant such specific (checkered) patterns.

    Here is one of them: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=180594523707 I got those in a box set with my Tommy Hilfiger watch. So all of those bands are Tommy Hilfiger, I believe they can be found individual somewhere on the web. [​IMG] It looks like a common Nato strap, but the woven texture is different, rather than vertical lines straight across.
