Cheers :thumbsup:

It's all  Laughing gravy's fault though, with their "15% off on ebay" thread. Wasn't intending to buy just now, but with discount it was down to £47 and free postage, so went for it.

Glad I did, has a more quality feel about it than the other Chinese watches I have, and you don't hear the rotor spinning like some of the others.:laugh:

I'm not a fan of automatics, but THAT is bloomin' lovely :thumbs_up:

Cheers.:)

I noticed that quite quickly after joining here and your determination to adhere to that stance despite attempts by others to change your preference for quartz. :laugh:

Well spotted mate. God knows I've tried to like 'em, but as soon as those pesky automatics runs out of juice and need winding up, I lose interest, ha ha!

On odd occasions (very rare :laugh:) i get that feeling too, especially with those autos that have small crowns with little grip, by the time you've managed to wind them your finger tips have had enough:sign_wtf:, and are beginning to question your devotion for automatics.  :laugh:

Although I do like my quartz watches as well, have quite a few.

I've had the same watch for over 5 years now and while I don;t wear it much any more - whenever I give it a bit of a shake or a wind it springs into life.. Rotor is a bit noisy but then that's part of the charm for me. Probably the best bang for buck watch I own

Good to know yours is still working after 5 years, makes me think I've gotten a better bargain than i had already thought.:thumbsup: I must have struck lucky with the rotor though, mines is definitely a lot quieter than the other Chinese watches I have, maybe they've tweaked things since you purchased yours.

Had that one in blue, very nice, have it to a co-worker after a couple weeks, but it was a great watch!

That is a very nice watch. I have recently bought my first Parnis, an Omega inspired model with the miyota movement. I paid slightly more and bought from the factory. It is a really nice watch!!!

Well, at least if they stop on you when the shops are closed due to holidays or the time of day/night you only have to give your wrist a gentle flick to get them going again  :tongue:

I had this one in blue dial with silver subdials. Have it to a co-worker who dropped it out of his gym locker. Funny enough the mineral Crystal held up just fine, while the rotor of the movement snapped in two. I'll be doing some work to replace the rotor soon.
