This is a watch i bought from eBay last month, i have to say the watch impressed me.

It's a Chinese brand you may not heard it before, neither do i, the brand called San Martin.

I found they made a lots of bronze watches which really interested me, and finally i decide to take this one. so far i'm very pleased for this watch.

Here i just want to share some of my experiences, i talk about it as i'm a fan of watches, and a collector of good watches. here we just go for this watch.

The watch diameter is around 39mm, include crown around 42mm, thickness is around 12mm, wear on my wrist just a perfect size, the movement is Seiko NH35, the case use bronze material, on the picture you can already seen the oxidization already make it became more brown, the finishing is brushed around the case body, now it seems more like a sandblasted finishing, and i thought it would be rusted by the sweat if i wear it in summer, but i found the case back is made in stainless steel which avoided this problem.

You can't see any logo on this watch, but it's fine for me, the seller told me they provide service for customized logo on dial, but it will take some to do it, so i just pass it.

For the dial, i found they have a lot of versions, and i also picked some photos on their website.these version they have black, blue and green colors. and the tracking printing on dials used SLN C3 luminous oill from Switzerland. Same for Hands. I really love the lum effect, it just light up the watch. the strap they told it's top layer cow leather, for me it's a little bit hard to wear, i would like it to be more softer, could wear more comfortable, the strap has quick release by the way, the strap width is 20mm, and i have some other nylon nato straps, which just easy to change and it just amazing match, and looks also nice.

Talk about the water resistance, this watch has 200 meters water resistance, i'm not try yet, i was planning to swim next week and wear this watch, i think it's may be a good choice for diving too. and i'm also expecting to see the finishing after diving. then talk about the price, i get the watch on ebay by $168, i think the price is very acceptable compare to the watches i bought before, i would say the same quality, San Martin watch have a better price to get. they have free tools by the way, for this watch they send free polish tool for watch case, and screw drivers, a set of booklets. it's a very nice purchase experience anyway.

Last but not least, let me know your comments about this watch, like or dislike, or share your experience to me, thank you.

Hmmm....I think you posted in in one of the more quieter parts of the forum.

To be honest the Watch Discussion Forum may have been more appropriate - as to me this doesn't really classify as a 'Vintage Watch'.

I believe I've seen a right-up somewhere else about these - maybe on Watchuseek - or perhaps on one of the Facebook Groups.

As you say, they seem great value when compared to Laco or something like that.

I'll be very interested to know what its time keeping is like over a longish period of time - plus of course its reliability - perhaps, if you're going to be wearing it for a while, you'd kindly update this thread for a while identifying the time it's keeping - but clearly the Seiko NH35 should prove a faithful servant.

For $168 it seems exceptional value for money :thumbsup:

Thank you for the comments i'm really appreciated.

For the time keeping, as beginning i didn't adjust well the timing, after i set up, it became stable, it's fixed slowly for 9 seconds per day since i wear it just more than a month. i have to say the lum really last for a long time. 

So if i share another good watch i should choose the right place to post.
