I'm interested in the watch. What's the model name/number?
This was discussed earlier in the thread, you have to contact someone specifically to get this watch.
I would look a few pages back for the contact.
Hello. The red hand is the chronograph hand, it accumulates seconds for the minute accumulator. As far was the top pusher being a little rough, mine seem to be the same. It is a mechanical so letting the chronograph run all the time might cause the watch to unwind a little faster, but I don't think it will hurt the watch.
Some of you are posting some fancy, expensive pieces for a poor man's thread!
Here's a cheap old watch I like as a poor man. I love these older watches given their less than 35mm diameter what with my girly wrists and all

I got mine from Thomas [[email protected]]. Communication was a little rough/VERY slow. I wanted to buy 2 at the same time but he never understood and it took a LONG time for him to respond to my emails at all. I had/have some issues with Paypal so I tried to do a bank transfer but that was a fiasco as well. I finally "Verified" myself with Paypal by giving them a bank account number and I the watch was at the post office within 5 days awaiting pickup. Not bad considering he is in Hong Kong. I love the watch and so far reviews are positive. I am looking for a strap for it.
[rant]On a side note I do not like or trust Paypal. I have made $10,000 in purchases and then they want my bank account information? No legitimate business asks me this after $10,000 successful low dollar transactions. I cannot wait until Visa gets their competitor going and I will not use Paypal for phone payments because they are sketchy. [/rant]
Thank you for the response. I guess i will not worry about the rough pusher and enjoy the watch.
How do you change strap? My spring bars are stucked.
This thread moved me to resurrect my like new Seiko that I put away after a couple of months when I obtained my daily wear Rolex almost 10 years ago. IIRC, it cost just over a hundred bucks and the kinetic energy cell battery thingy had gone bad. Forty dollars later and I have a cheap watch to wear when I need something with a blue face.
Now you need to put your camera where that watch used to be and get a new one.
The more I see this watch the more I am tempted to purchase one for myself. I am trying to resist, since I am saving to replace my departed Daytona.
You made it look good. Nice.
Although I don't wear mine all the time, I'm glad I purchase mine.
