Scored this beautiful watch off the 'bay when given a second chance offer. Everything about this watch screams quality (Swiss/German). Great color scheme, solid movement, well built. All this for below USD500. Seller's pics below.

Love the look. As mentioned a PO resemblance, not a bad thing!

Enjoy!

Love that, looks really nice, and chunky. I like how the hands are skeletonised so they don't obscure the sub-dial readings.

I'm guessing ETA 7750 too.

Yes the windward runs on ETA 7750. Not sure what movement is on the PO homage chrono, Kadloo's website indicates KAD-12(in-house modded?).

Looks cool! What are the specs? Case width, lug width, lug to lug?

I think Kadloo switched over to Asian clones in order to lower costs. I recall their Kad-17 was stated as "ETA inspired" in their old website. And the latest Millenium watch runs on a Valanvron-24: Millenium - KADLOO International Watches & Watchwinders. Valanvron reassembles Seagull movements (in this case the ST21) in Switzerland so they can be classified as Swiss made.

I can't say for sure if the Kad-12 has the same foundations, but the website pic of their Kad-32 chrono is a spitting image of a Seagull ST-1940 so I assume it's the same case for the 12 (being Seagull based isn't that bad...they make good movements)

Case width is 45mm, lug width is 22mm. Not sure about lug to lug. For a 45mm watch, I'm guessing 52mm. Will confirm when it reaches me.

Sweet. I hope you enjoy it, even though you're an Everton fan. ;-)
