    Re: datum watches

    Mikrolisk has two Datum trademarks:
    Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index

    Weird name for a brand- the word essentially means "date" in German, so the Nomos Datum is essentially a Nomos Date.

    The jewels you mentioned are a part of the jewel count.

    19.50 AUD? That would be something like 15 bucks. You've made one damn good deal!

    Yes, well, but it should be pointed out that Tudor never really used terribly special movements and that that movement served as a base for a hell of a lot else! (Another success for Snazzy Sales Talk!) However, 15 bucks sounds decent for a watch in that condition (unserviced but functional).
