Some crackahs today.

Can't take even a clandestine photo at work because of the qualities of the people I work with, but it's this cheap little beaut:

Yessir :-)

Sorry this is late.

It's a modern LIP based on the Himalaya case, upsized for modern tastes but is still only 40mm (the original was 35mm, but there is a reissue at 35mm too). Not bad, though the finishing on the sides is a bit low-rent. Nice dial though - and totally stain and dust free...

LIP does a lot of these reissues. They're cheap, good-looking and faithful to the originals in style and size. Purists will hate the quartz and imported Citizen movements of course, but that's because many of them still think you'll get a new, in-house automatic movement from a European watchmaker for two hundred quid :-)
