    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 :embar:

    Seagull 1963 chronograph

    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. :)

    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.

    Although I don't wear mine all the time, I'm glad I purchase mine.
