    The Seagulls are originals. They are a re-issues/homage to the 1963 chronographs once in production

    I assume originals. Metlin?

    Oh yes. I believe that Tianjin Seagull was tasked with designing the originals, and they also make the reissues.

    No chance in hell I'm going to that kind of work on SF. Dozens of photos per page in certain threads.

    True, but if you're interested in seeing it then you've got the option now. [​IMG]

    Not Manhattan, unfortunately

    Yeah, it's a cheap quartz. But it was affordable and as close in style to the Lange I was craving. Some day I will buy the real thing, but for now this will do. [​IMG]

    Hello all (blame Digmenow for my presence if you must). [​IMG]

    A while back I was in this boat - wanted a nice watch but still have a psychological hurdle to clear in terms of how much to spend on a daily wear item and the lack of demand in my life for getting properly dressed up. Settled on this from Zappos, which despite obvious flaws I still quite like nearly a year on. About $225.

    This is just lovely! Oh how would I love to own these. Too bad they are using a cheap Miyota 1L22 movement.

    You can buy the movement itself on eBay for 10 bucks, that's 150 for the shell and the strap.

    The website states it is a 40mm diameter and that the crown is so small, it would be a nightmare to deal with.
