I too guessed Sydney! Saw (the last photo) in some video and I when I saw his, it reminded me of that video.

Australia was on my bucketlist for travel.

New York City took it's place now.

Sorry a562140, Steinhart will be on hold
Sydney mild weather are just fine for us.

the ETA movement in my Tudor Day-Date is doing fine. timing very accurate.
Too many people bash ETA simply because it's ETA or they see people bash so they follow blindly..

to be honest the guy was completely biased in writing that tear down. don't really care about the finishing or use of non metal parts, not important in a watch that was never meant to be repairable or serviceable.

I had one for a while and the power reserve was as claimed, mine also kept time to within +4s to +5s per day when worn, which is impressive.

You got to give credit for that.

Curious. U mention u 'had it for awhile'. Why did u decide not to keep it?

AFAIK, its not profitable to flip nor financially burdening to keep this watch.

end of the day. still too old for a colorful plastic watch so it never gets any wrist time. Singapore had no stock months back, so flipped at break even price.

this is a more precise and proefessional tear down of the watch.

Thanks for the pic bro.. Was thinking of getting the exact same piece. Had yet to see one in real life as it was oos over at the boutique I went to.

Anyone knows how much this cost? Always like their diver watch.
4.2k after 15% + 5% discount. (Steel bracelet). Heard from my colleagues that there was a recent price increase last year. Oh well.
