After a request from someone unknown to me too my bank for £400 on Easter monday, and after a lot of phone calls to and fro, the money was returned to my account last night. It only took 8 days !!! :mad:

I thought that I was due a lil present to myself for all of the hassle.

I have just picked this up for £26 inc postage...

I bought more for the unusual look etc, not seem one quite like it before, I doubt it is anything special....But I kind of like it, in a retro way.
Your comments and \ or any info would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Vyn.

Vyn,

Very nice; it is a real attention grabber. I love the variety of shapes of watches from what I'd guess is the mid/late 70s. Can you date it?

Regards,

Ed B.

Indeed not Tiger, its like for nothing really, dunno about the bracelet, only I very much doubt its original.... the seller doesn't state that, but it looks the part, if its not original I guess :)

I could be 1000% wrong but looking at the lug set up it makes you think it is original :)

Looks like a nice find. I believe the bracelet is original. I had this 6106-5459 from 71' which is very similar. Your bracelet appears to be the same as the original bracelet on mine.
