    Thanks to this thread I ordered a couple of Sea-gull, a M199 and a M186 in roman. Will post pictures when I received them.

    Thanks!
    It was about $1,500 with SS strap, will run you about $1,200 with leather strap.

    The Sea-Gull M186 is a ridiculous watch. It should cost ten times what it does. You go, dab.

    I don't know how old it is or the model number. It didn't cost more than $40.
    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.:embar:

    My Orient Chrono with a green dial. The steel band it came with was trash so took it off right away for a tan oiled strap. I tried to leave a review on orientwatchusa but they seem to delete all reviews that aren't over 4 stars with only positive comments. My only problem with this watch is the bracelet.

    Where do you order them from? I've been thinking about buying a couple of them myself.

    Sorry, i didn't know what the "poor mans" price point was [​IMG] as I see a lot of $10k+ watches around here.

    But what is the price point as I have more watches that are cheaper than this one.

    From my experience on this thread I'd say anything below $500-$600

    Side note, the Oris is very nice!
