My IMGUR app is not working right now, so I pulled a pic from GooGlè.

This watch is badass...

From Wing's younger, more creative days, the ANDROID "Mystic," featuring a beautiful gold-colored, 21-jewel 'skeletonized' movement from Miyota. One of Wing's truly iconic creations, designed & built before he became a part of the international conspiracy to bilk "shut-in's," "feebs" and even Meals on Wheels recipients of their milk and medication money, thus making Mantis Head one of the richest and most evil perpetrators of le mal horologique throughout the world.

Hey Mort thank you. It is a pretty cool one, probably the coolest and most unusual watch I own. I bought it from Nathan, kew, He's from Australia. I'd bet he has one of the biggest Orient collections. I've bought several from him and I was surprised when I saw he was selling this one. I bought it about 2 years ago. It was basically NOS with the boxes and such. Here's a link from when he purchased it back in 2012
http://forums.watchuseek.com/f410/orien ... 54157.html

Here's a site that has a bunch of vintage Orient watch ads and if you look in the second post about half way down is the Orient Srufin. There are also many others I would like to get a hold of...

Unfortunately, other than this I don't have any other information to share.

I love this watch/strap color combination, mien chaver, but why are you wearing a 'scrunchie' on your wrist? Did Mrs. Tik give it to you to hold when you were out on the boat...? :???:
