    Not even close to rare Sheffield

    It seems there are plenty of these old sheffields to go around but it is becoming a fast favorite. Simple 1 jewel handwinding movement that seems to never quit and the accuracy is very good at - a few seconds a day. Screw on case back is a nice addition. Wears nicely on a carbon band.

    I remember Sheffield. They were big in the hippy era and a lot got sold with hippy bands. Once they broke down the owner of the company never repaired them, and ultimately customer complaints brought the company down.
