    i cant get a clear picture. but it says "all stainless steel" (common sense tells me that the casing is made of stainless steel), and "10 atm water resistant"...
    nothing else. i dont know how to open it, if that would help anyhow...

    I doubt it would help that much inside but you never know - I'd leave it closed/original sealed right now though

    If its a genuine article whoever did make it must have got licencing to use the WRC branding/logo..

    Maybe you could ask WRC World Rally Championship to see if they have manufacturers list or maybe they could ID it for you

    Well, it looks to be a good quality quartz chronograph, the movement is probably a Seiko or Seiko-clone. Not super-valuable, but worth what it probably cost.....

    I have searched high and low for any clues on this watch - can't find a thing. It somehow looks like a vintage Seiko to me; however it seems to be in too good a shape to be vintage. I'm sure you know Edox is the official watch of the WRC, since 2009, but it is certainly not an Edox as they brand even the WRC watches.

    Wherever did you find it? That might provide a clue. I love the watch by the way!!

    thans, the watch sure looks great, but the trouble is-i really dont like how it looks on my hand... :S
    i think it is not a vintage, cause i got the infom it was made in 2007. yes, i've seen edox watches and those are great...
    i got this one from a friend, he participated that year in JWRC, and it was awkward to me to ask him how much it had cost. He got it when he rode the Finland route.

    Any numbering on the casing? Any indication on the dial whether it is Swiss, Japan, German, or some other movement? I can't see any indications in the picture, but maybe you can in person.

    It looks like Orient was commissioned to make a 2007 WRC Champions watch for Ford/BP. I feel like I'm getting closer, any other clues?

    What size it the case on it? Maybe I can just buy it off you and end your heartache..
