    Praetorian Legionnaire Anyone?

    Does anyone own one of these: Praetorian Legionnaire? What is the quality like for the price? It sells for just $155.16 w/free shipping and looks just like a Marathon for a fraction of the price.

    Looks pretty awesome. I notice they have a Myota automatic version too for a bit more $$.

    Well, I would not say that the automatic movement is just "a bit more"! It's alot more, like $400 more - $562.32!

    Agreed. When I saw the topic I assumed that it was the winning entry on the scooby doo contest.

    They don't look bad at all.
    It's a shame they don't come with Tritium illumination at this price.
    For that you need to spend a bit more, like a
    Praetorian Centurion





    And the names are pretty awesome indeed.

    Re: Praetorian Legionnaire Anyone?

    i have no idea what Praetorian Legionnaire r but the topic made me think of La Légion Etrangère wich does sell watches to (other then killing enemies of france all over the world)

    I guess the big seling point of the Marathon J/T/SAR is the Tritium tubes, wich this is lacking so wiyh that in mind its much money fo nothing !

    PS: La Légion Etrangère = french foreign legion
