As I love a so called “batman”, as with my Steinhart 500, plus having some spare cash from eBay sales (not watches, that’s later with a CW and a Hamtun up for grabs), I’ve taken the plunge.

One is arriving tomorrow, should be interesting.
M79 arrived today, so interesting in fact that it’s going back.

Looks nice but a couple of problems for me:-

Pictures on website don’t show how the bracelet tapers away, makes whole watch look unbalanced.
Bracelet rips the hairs out of my arm, and that was an ominous sign on first try.

No harm done, a returns label (Tracked 48) is included. I’m not putting on eBay even though there is £1 selling fees on eBay this weekend. But my collection should be nicely trimmed down by a couple of others at least.
Why not list it on ebay? If someone wants to pay over the odds so be it, let them. We all lose money in this crazy hobby si why not make some back?

No WR, pants bracelet, pants non-ratcheting bezel – why do people like these?

What is the point of the day night bezel in this?
Looks like cheap nasty crap to me. Much better out there for the money
Cheers now
