    Ive been eyeing this off- Should I?

    I really think it looks very nice and it can be had for around $1200. What do you think?

    More info is definitely needed. It could be the steal of the century or an overpriced piece of tat. Mvt, WR, Adjustments, Crystal & Case material, Warranty, Service Network all need to be known. I bet someone on this forum will know this from a glance!

    Don't know anything about the brand and it's not really my style but looks like a great dress watch. One thing I can say, I can tell from the pics who the seller is. If you haven't bought from them before I can recommend them from personal experience.

    Thanks GlennO i have heard good things about them.
    Its a totally different style for me too but it looks very elegant and I have to say the whole Cuban connection is kind of cool and I would be quite at home with the watch, a white linen shirt and some dancing with my girl in dance club in Havanna! I am getting swept away here.

    the lowest I've seen this model being shopped for is about $1400 ... there was one for $2300 and a few in between

    if you're not going to purchase the item, what're you planning to do with the $1200?

    I too am intrigued by the Cuban heritage of this brand. My local watch retailer has an assortment of these pieces inside a humidor. Being a bit of the yachts and Tommy Bahama lifestyle fantasizer, it makes me want one. When I did some research into the brand though, it turns out it was a brand that died and was resurrected. The company is now based out of Switzerland and has no current ties to Cuba. This makes me care less about them. Maybe try and track down an original?

    It's a nice watch...if you have the cash and an itch to scratch then go for it. Post pics when you get it as I would like to see wrist shots of this watch.

    There are many of these re-instated brands, particularly in my neck of the woods. Be careful. Just because some people bought them doesn't mean they were happy after a few weeks. Doesn't mean they weren't either of course. But its a lot ofmoney to spend on a whim
