Do it! One of my early purchases (2007) and Im still not tired of it. I dont see how anyone could not like this watch even if they didnt want to own one. Ive had it on leather and mesh also and it still was great. Seems to me I did a long article about it on BDWF but alas it is gone. Glad to answer any questions or supply pics.

Way before I was smartened up by most of you all. All Chinese, but still. It is what it is. The 6 o'clock indication is really useless. Wish they had left it out. The dial color is admittedly garish, but most were. Always careful winding this one.

For this evening.

I see I had the same reaction as most in that thread.

Geez, 100 bucks for a 2824?

The good old days of watch collecting when bargains abounded and life was more fun.

Remember the Zodiacs new for $35 or the Accutrons and other give aways?

Thanks, Alain, for digging that up. Lots of memories on that site. Where are all those people?
