    Like the silver dial and the blued hands there....
    The middle shot makes it look quite chunky, what's the diameter and thickness?

    Not so sure on the gold hour markers and numerals though...

    I've been tempted to pull the trigger on this watch often enough to lose count.

    I'll be very interested in your assessment of it, Al.

    Looks interesting Al'. As I mentioned in another thread, I also have another Red Star on the way but I don't want to steal your thunder. Here's a quick peak...



    Regards

    no worries, would like to have a look at them....

    I first saw them in 1990 when a shop in Covent Garden around the corner from my office was selling the direct from Berlin after the wall came down... always thought they were very cool.....

    Default Seagull 1963

    I've lost count of the number of times I have nearly bought one of these. I keep worrying about reliabilty and servicing/parts though.

    They look really smart, understated and good to go with a suit or jeans. I would try it with a rally strap to see how it looked.

    Any thoughts Al?

    Hi Andrew,

    welcome, well it is still with Royal mail at the moment as it was delivered when I was away... I'll maybe get it today and give it some thought...... although it should be fine for parts...

    I'll take some pics and post maybe later today if I can get hold of it....

    I bought it from Sweden from a collector but I think you can buy them direct... the various Chinese websites are bonkers.. check this one out...?
