    I don't like watches from tropical countries unless I know the seller or have a real good feeling about the watch. Tropics are really hard on watches unless they are scrupulously serviced and maintained. The metals wear and corrode in the humid environment.

    +1! It looks ok from the first picture, but the second picture shows that it has some dial mold/green moisture spots on it. Movement looks like it has some wear too.
