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.

I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

Probably not, but I also wonder if citizen originally made a dial like this?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
