A friend bought one of those at a duty free stop on a cruise. Nardin's are heavily discounted which may be of concern on eventual value.

And good call on the Orient, Darren. For the money, they are hard to beat. I've been wearing one of theirs with a blue dial as my pool/vacation watch for a few years. It's by far the best value watch I own and I've recommended them to a lot of folks.
Thanks James, I've come to love them. Since then I've gotten a Hemel Track with the bead blasted case and a pretty decent Miyota movement:




and ordered this Hamilton Khaki Field Pioneer 42mm hand wind:




I'm gonna be paying for them for a little while.

I hear really good things about both of them.

I’ve been gathering early 70’s Times stuff that works to rebuild a watch my father left when he passed.
I’m almost there. I just need to sit down with all of it and start building.
It ain’t easy.
You guys try to rewind a mainspring sometime and see how it goes.

Hey Scott, you probably know this but there are some great watch repair videos on YouTube.
