Just put on some cheap old strap I had. For $19 I am really happy with this Mumbai franken watch. Got it because I originally backed the Direnzo drz02 on Kickstarter but had to cancel because I bought my sinn556 at the time. This is obviously a new dial but everything else is original from 1972 I believe. To be honest I didn't even think it would show up let alone work.
Fyi there's still more on eBay for this same watch.

Wonder if Sergio has seen what he's inspired.

Probably not, but I also wonder if citizen originally made a dial like this? I researched a bit but there are way too many eagle 7 dials that exist.

Seems like someone would've flagged the Citizen sooner if it was the homage to the Direnzo.

Amazon. I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket so what better thing to buy than a watch!

Finally own a Christopher Ward.


Perfect timing this week for my birthday. A visit to the winery with the C65 Trident

This watch looks amazing in person. Love the finishing and the strap is like butter one of the most comfortable leather straps I've worn

Congratulations, nice addition. I held off a very long time buying a CW because I really didn't (and don't) like the logo. And yet, I bought two in July and find them to be outstanding watches. The quality for the price is really high. I don't even notice the logo when wearing them, and my bronze CW has gotten more compliments from people in just a few months than any other watch I've ever owned (mostly because no one ever comments on my watches, but they have with that one for some reason).

I picked up this Sinn 104 LE today from a seller on WUS. I love the green dial. It feels great on the wrist. So often OEM leather straps are a little too short for my 8" wrists, but this fits great.Image

Thanks! The logo was never a problem for me. I am surprised with the build quality and value fit for money! I'm giving to be meeting them at the watch fair in Manhattan this weekend! Very excited

I have 3 watches incoming......maybe, hopefully. Most people report they have received their "ships in 1-2 months" or whatever time-frame Amazon orders but some have said otherwise. I have 2 of those pending. A Casio W736H-1AV for $7 and a AE1000W-3AV for $4. If I manage to get the third (not from Amazon, not a Casio) mystery watch, I'll be posting it in the deals thread for sure. I have a feeling someone else may find it and post it in the meantime, but I want to make sure my order ships first. It is something I never thought I would be able to find at this price. 🤞

I'm buying too many. Time to slow down. :? First, I'm copying this from the incoming thread. A little while back there were all these cheap Casio and Timex watches on Amazon that weren't immediately available to ship. I ordered the ones above. My $7 vibration alarm watch got cancelled. But I finally received my $4 World Time AE1000W-3AV.....2 actually. I think I'm gonna be really happy with it for $4. 8-) it seems others have had mixed results with these orders as well. Also my Vostok Komandirskie 439631 came in. If I can figure out how to successfully strip it down to the brass, I think I'll be very happy with it. For the first time ever, I'm thinking about a bund strap.....for this little 'dirskie. Up next, got a great deal on a Citizen Nighthawk BJ7019-62E. Gonna try analog quartz again and see if it will stick to my wrist for at least a little while. And lastly the Seiko Prospex SRPC95, the Orange Turtle/Nemo. The price was just too good to pass up. It was miscategorized on ebay and I was able to use the sitewide coupon code. I imagine I'll flip it at some point soon but it's already pre-owned so I might as well wear it a few times.
