Hi all, I'm looking at this watch on a local auction site but can't find any information on it. It looks well made and quite attractive. Do any members recognise it? Any details would be appreciated, especially a rough idea of the value. Thanks and cheers from Cape Town. By the way, anybody coming to the World Cup?

Hi Jules, what to say?
Pretty cheap made watch with its chrome plated case. I think there's a pretty cheap no-jewel Miyota inside (at least another seller claims it's a Miyota). The bezel will not turn and I think it has a non-hardened mineral crystal.
They still have a similar model in there online-shop for just 25 EUR. That should indicate that the watch is produced in China or another low-cost country.

I would not recommend if you are already used to Seiko or Citizen quality. In nature I'm pretty sure you'd be disappointed.

On the other hand, if you get a very cheap prize and you really like the design...

Cheers,

Axel

Hi Axel, Thanks! I couldn't find that site originally - it's clearly not for me! Shows how looks can be deceiving in a picture. - I assumed it was a quality auto movement....
