Default Barbos watches - thoughts?

Hi everyone,

I came across this brand recently and there doesn't seem to be too much info on the web about them - http://www.barbos-watch.com.

My research suggests they are probably made in China and marketed from Germany. Having said that, they look like a lot of watch for the money - quartz ronda movement and sapphire crystal all for around $200.

Of the few people that have purchased them (mainly off ebay) most are reporting good experiences (apart from poor lume). Just wondering if anyone here has anything more to add?

Thanks

Andrew

Someone brought this brand up a few months ago.
Unfortunately I still don't know anything about them, except they look like catalog cases used by many other brands.

Well it doesn't make any sense to me to have those huge Monster like indices and have poor lume. They should fix that before the company folds! IMO, the dial is a nice design on the SeaMaster but if they don't put better lume in those markers, some die hard diver type guys are never gonna buy one. The SeaMaster is the best looking one of the bunch, the rest are little busy in the dials for my taste.

I like that grey dial, bummer if the lume stinks but get one and we'll know for sure. Thanks!
