I used to be a big Kobold fan, owning 2 Seals and a MG at one point in time....Well. that changed. Nevertheless, I like the design of some KObold watches, especially the Seal and the Comanche. I loved the Comanche because it's dial is not as cluttered as the dial of the 103. So I just changed the hands with hands from the 757...all of them, and I thing I'm pretty close. Since Mike Kobold's is deeply rooted in Sinn watches, after all he learned his trade from them, and his first watches were Sinn clones, I don't feel bad of merging the "young" design with proven mechanics...saving a lot of money in the process too..:-!
