The green dial brother to my black dial Merkur 304

Post by AlbertaTime » October 13th 2022, 6:38pm

This solves the only issue I had with the black dial, which was the bluing on the hour, minute and second hands made parts of the hour and minute hands hard to see, and same with the second hand, which almost completely disappears in some lights.

Otherwise: 38mm and comes with a nice travel case and a decent quick-release canvas strap. Usual price is about $100--I bought both mine for that, and I'm happy. But right now (and for who knows how long) it's about $65.

That's a lot of fun for not very much money.

Very nice! Love the size and readability. Showed up at $59 plus $15 shipping for me.

That's not bad as far as price. And it's a very fair review.

That is so nice. I think I like it even more than the black dial (and I'm not normally a fan of green watches).
I think I have two green watches including this one. Maybe four if I count holographs. But this works for me. Good funferthebuck.
