Chazz:
Great pick up my Bro!!
Isn't this the Spinnaker Dumas iteration?

Former employer messed up and deducted too much from my pay for period 1991
and 1998. Intentions were to pick up a Promaster Diver from Citizen. But now I don't
know? 2 refunds enroute. Over deductions refund and IRS refund.
The blazes with the Promaster. Thinking Seiko 775 or 777. And if checks are a couple
thousand large, wifee might look the other way and ok a Seiko Tuna (model not so
important). But not the resin case.

Nothin like some cheap lovin. I like the hour indices and bezel. Really neat watch for a good price. Don't make me buy the same watch as you again Chazzman it might start to get a little weird. Nice watch

What an incredible deal, along with watch there Chaz !

Didn't realize these Spinnakers could actually be picked up for so low.
Unbelievable find !!!

Honestly does have a really nice tone to it, and looks somewhere between
a neat gold, or even brass like Gary said. ..Huge congrats here sir !!!

MTNDRDR:
Are you letting Chazz contribute to your watch delinquency again?
Cheep IMO is a relative word!!!
I wouldn't kick it under one of the locomotive wheels I used to run
for 40 years. No Siree.

Have to concur that it is a nice watch for the money, with a pleasantly uncluttered dial to boot

MDNTRDR:
I knew that Bro. (That delinqency can be self inflicted)
I figgered it was gold plated.See how wrong I was?
Brass just sweetens the pot! Any Tom Dick n Harry can
have a 316 stl stl case. Me for just one.

I may make a course correction and snag a Dumas or a
Cahill.

I try to stay away from the plated watches. If I like them they they get worn and the plating rubs off.

Chazz:
The Divil makes me do it!!! Cheepie affordables (AKA F71s on that other forum)
Makes me do it too.
Commented on this forum about a killer Citizen grab from the Bay. Watch did
have some baggage tho. Needed to buy springbars and a strap for Mr Citizen.
Whole drill South of a hunnert bucks. Finding a bargain (IMO) is like makin luv
to ole wimmen. Ya can't overdo it.
