So this ones kind of interesting. I put it together from parts from Landeron on Ebay. I bought the case, dial, hands and movement as a project. It's a seagull movement. I wore it for a couple of days so it's still in great condition. I will note the movement is keeping within 4s a day which I was impressed by.

One oddity to be aware of. It has a screw down crown which means that you have to screw it in before you completely wind up the movement or it will not go in any further. ST19 movement will not let you overwind. So what you do is wind it up about 75% (say 30 turns) and then screw in (which actually winds it another 5 or so). It's an odd quirk you need to get used to. It does make it more water resistant however.

Price: cost of parts is actually around $500 but I'd like to just sell for $300 obo.
