Yeah, Like a Captain Willard.🙂Honestly, I didn't realize the difference until I read a recent worn & wound review...The crown guard looks different, the top of the crown is screwed in flush with the case, not like current day turtles!
As far as I know Seiko never made a bronze version, so it can hardly be a clone. Secondly, the Cronos version is probably superior in just about every way, but still costs a fraction of the price. WIN WINI guess the Chinese can't tell the difference in models they are cloning!
This is my point. There are so called watch enthusiasts who happily tolerate, even encorouge homages from various manufacturers, but condemn them from othersThey all do, in fact, there have been some who say Rolex ripped off the Blancpain 50 Fathoms design, although I don't think that is true.
