    ^^^^^ I like the Flieger style. Looks like a sibling of the 39 Hanhart flieger chrono.....

    Ooooops, bargain table... :rolleyes:

    Double price cut, finally 29,99 EUR. :D

    But really good to read and the cool dial freaked me out! Brass (!)-case, stainless steel-back.

    This line of watches look like a quartz version of Seagull 1963. There is ticking second hand in subdial, and the chrono second also ticks instead of sweeping. The watch movement is Miyota OS21.

    I used to collect vintage and antique watches from the flea market... spent a big number on this one when I found it ($400 in the 1980s, I think) and haven't worn another watch since. Rolex Oyster precision, 1964. Have had it serviced a couple of times. Keeps on tickin' and keeps me from buying an Apple watch.

    Yip I agree wholeheartedly,,I sent my datejust to a so called Rolex specialist in Hatton gardens,,,###### watch repairs,,,absolute shocking service,,lesson learned & never again.Rolex may now refuse to service the watch ,,I will therefore send it to Michael Young in Hong Kong,,he done a great job tightening up the bracelet.

    That looks a lot like the "Murph" watch they just released.

    I love that Hamilton military aesthetic but I am dismayed by the fact the brand is owned by a rapacious Swiss conglomerate, the Swatch Group. Hamilton was an authentic American classic and now it is a zombie brand, appropriating old styles.

    That Murph is 42mm - too big for the style IMO - 38 mm would have been preferable.

    I agree 100%. Especially about the size. I have a wrist between 7 1/2-7 3/4 but still prefer sizes 40 and under. This giant watch thing needs to go.

    I grabbed a wonderful no-bullshit automatic watch with Miyota 82S5 on hot sale, today. It's a Zeppelin 7362-4 by Junkers watches (POINTtec, Germany). But that doesn't matter. For me, it's just a nice "Miyota 82S5 watch". :)
