Minimalist? No, Movado Museum is truly minimalist. This is bullshit. Just a generic watch. Not much different from date just inspired watches (dash markers)

Brathwait at least has Swiss autos with Sellita movements though and their prices are high, yes, but much lower than a Tagger oy-veyer with a Sellita selling for several grands

Hmmm...I wonder how many squids it takes to barter for a Tag-Oy-Veyer watch...probably more than the guys on Most Dangerous Catch can squeeze into their boats! ;)
