I picked up a Rotary Kensington from Ivory Trunk for $80
I've been trying to find information on what movement it uses, but without any real success. I do know that it runs at28,800 bph. Looks like a sea-gull movement, but looks can be deceiving.
In any case I've had it for about a month now. It looks good and keeps good time.
I picked it up as a one-off on ebay. I haven't seen any others like it online, to be honest. I'll definitely keep an eye out for you though.
I was thinking of getting one with an olive nato strap.
That seiko looks great. Anyone know where else I can get this watch? It's no longer listed on Seiya Japan's site. Thanks,
That is a handsome watch. Simple but elegant.
Thanks. I think you have to cruise Ebay for this model now as I believe it's no longer produced. There's some similar ones on Seiya I think, but not with the bevelled crystal. The crystal's cool but it requires a decent amount of sleeve room.
Thanks Kobalto. The similar ones on Seiya's site have a radial pattern on the face and I prefer the clean face of yours.
Will definitely keep an eye out for one on eBay.
anyone got a pic comparison of a tissot le locle to say another watch like a gsar or a hammy khaki field or even a monster? just wanna gauge its lug to lug length
I don't think this is necessarily the correct thread for this, but I saw this the other day in a local department store and couldn't resist posting it:
Note: I would not purchase this watch in a million years.
I wonder if the design team behind that just sat down and said "Okay guys, let's make the ugliest watch ever. Any ideas?".
Don't forget: 'Ugliest AND biggest - with multiple clocks, both digital and analog'.
65mm?! Thats almost as the palm of my hand. Might as well hang it on my wall (except its awful looking so I wouldn't even do that)
I saw it IRL - it's huge!
And with 65 mm, the big watch fad has truly jumped the shark!
