    Definitely not crapped but just over price retail price. I have one for 4years. Still running strong and keeps good time despite using Chinese movement. I bought it with steep discount.

    I look at what mine is, its a semi copy of the Portuguese at a very cheap price. To me, with the blue strap I now use, it looks way more expensive than it is, but its a cheapo watch.

    Absolutely nothing to be ashamed of with some of the Chinese movements if properly cleaned and oiled.

Same question applies for the Zodiac since all i ever see are Seawolfs and vintage ones but i really like mine and think i got a hell of a deal.
    Never heard of them but going by the low par generic chinese caseback on the ingersoll, id doubt they are much chop, but it looks quite nice, dials nice.

    I‘d really like to know what their „German Design“ is about ? It looks interchangeable with almost every watch with roman numerals and date. Where‘s the design they claim ?

    Some dude chowing down on a Bratwurst designed it, I LOVE Bratwurst. I go to a German deli to buy them, Mattern Sausage. I will even eat mine with some Tommys chili on them, of course with cheese also.

    It means ,,Designed in Germany."*

    The headquarter of Ingersoll is in Germany I think.


    For that kind of money a Seiko or Citizen from proper watchmakers would be the better choice.


    *I have seen this with bicycle frames: my frame from Argon18 had ,,Engineered in Canada" (= produced in a sweatshop in China)*.
