It's a really good looking watch in the flesh. I flipped mine a while ago but liked it a lot.

Those bring a grand? Arnie must be proud.
I certainly made money on mine.

I still have a H557 “Don Dominic” which was more of a dress watch with the same latest fancy quartz tech, when it was new. And LCD, too, which was the new LED…

He didn’t give two shits about Austrians but Dominic liked the watch and nobody fucked with him so it must be a pretty good watch.

This example is from 1982 and works great - except the alarm no longer goes ‘beep’. The scratches? Those were created the old fashion way…

Fine looking watch but I still prefer my Citizen Aqualand pictured in the article. Even though the Seiko may be more profitable and great quality, I could just never get excited over the brand. My SKX-007 is as far as I went.

If I am to be insulted I must first value your opinion.
