    It is one made by a guy in Vietnam. Others on the forum have commented on his work before so the last time I went home I purchase about 14 from him. I can find his website and details if you want?

    Cheers

    Well I'm no expert but, beyond all of the other vintage watch criteria, I looked for one in very good condition with a movement picture that looked good. When looking at movement also made sure there wasn't evidence of prior battery leakage. I then asked about the date change since these plastic date wheels can be an issue. all was well so I went for it. Oh, forgot to mention the price was right too!;)

    Make sure there is no corrosion around battery, or anywhere else for that matter. These aren't very expensive so waiting for a nice one is advisable...patience is your friend here.:) I was really looking for a steel one but this one was so nice I couldn't resist.

    So far, so good!;)

    P.S. I'm sure the more knowledgeable on the Tuning fork movements will chime in as well.

    Had to dress up a bit today. Figured my SMP would work nicely under the jacket...only to be seen by me as I make a turn (on red after a full stop of course).
