Those SWI autos are still one of my favorite watches that I never jumped at. The ones you guys have are just beautiful - and I'd wager those are the best quality watches ever offered by a "TV brand." I can't think of anything else that comes even close.
Best of luck to all my longtime friends here. Please stay safe, always.

Not wearing on of the above (N.O.A. today) but I thought I would just add my thoughts about another cheap pimp daddy from the old days.

I ain't big on three handers but that sure is a handsome damn watch right there.

Did the same thing- didn't buy the SWI's, these- whatayagonna do?

I think I may be able to soothe myself a little bit with a very nice version of the 7751, but damn.

Am I missing something?
What's the connection between AN and SWI.
My AN was also sold as a Gevril.
Confused.
???????
AN produced the SWI badged watches .

Believe they produced certain watches for Gevril as well.

Welcome to the watchlords liberal echo chamber.

This is, to me, a fine thing. The idea that a bunch of unused (but still fine) movements can be brought back from the dead, after many years of storage, is a perfect example of the joy of This Thing of Ours. Instead of molding away in some watchmaker's set of drawers, they are cased, in a fine watch, oiled and cleaned, and will serve some good WIS for many years to come.

It's almost a holy thing. Unless Eyal does it, then it's infamnia.
