Hello I have just got my self a watch from marinawatch on special for $70.
now what interested me in this watch is it seemed to contain an st21 or something similar
Today the watch arrived it does indeed have a movement that looks a lot like an st21/eta 2824 however having taken a close look at it It is neither. It beats at 21600 bph and has a standard regulator arrangement as oppose to the eccentric screw seen on the st21 and eta 2824. There are no markings on the movement also it looks brand new and not refurbished in any way. I will try to post some more photos but photobucket is giving me grief hence the sellers pics. So does any one know what the movement is and what factory could have made it. worth $70 for the mystery movement alone but the watch is really rather nice as well as usual the strap is not very nice but the watch its self is solid and defect free. If I had a minor complaint the bezel has a lot of play in it between clicks but lines up spot on. so I have a watch with a mystery movement sapphire crystal and supposedly water resistant to 200 meters all for $70 quite pleased so far.
