    Just ordered a new Amphibia

    Just ordered a watch for my eldest son as a 'thank you' for helping the family out over a difficult period.
    It's a 090679, bought from Olga at 'russianwatchstore' on ebay, it's the second watch I've bought from them, and as I've managed to crack the crystal on it, I also ordered a new crystal which they ordered in specially for me (couldn't find a crystal for a Komandiersky 650541 listed in stock on the web), throughout the whole process they were great, keeping me informed all the way. They don't carry many watches in stock though.

    Great choice! It looks amazing with the black date wheel.

    He had the choice of their stock listing, just handed my phone over and asked him to pick one that he liked - then I told him that I'd get it for him, he was then going to change his mind and choose one of the cheaper ones - tough, he'd chosen that one.

    This one came in at 66.95 USD or 63.95 EUR (has 2 listings, and as I'm in the UK, USD is a better exchange rate at the moment) includes post & packing

    Yes some real bargains to be had right now, £50ish will get you a new 710 auto or a 1967 tonneau auto, when I bought last week my second CCCP tonneau and the now not getting KVPO I was very very tempted to use that money to buy a new 710 or 090 but I am a fan of tired and worn and making look good so I can say to people "yep I sorted that" hehe

    I am very sorely tempted by a paddle handed tonneau that is £30 on ebay... sadly it would need totally reluming but I may still get that.

    So good. I don't know what it is about these watches, but I look at them on Meranon and other places. They look great. Bit you see actual photos or see them on youtube and the same watches look about even five times better. Usually marketing images eg Mcdonalds hamburgers, have the exact opposite effect.

    I found your comment very funny, though I have to disagree. I like McDo, so much that I only gp o,nce per year to be sure I really appreciate it! This was my today's OT...
