One of the ultimate geek watch of my era. Pic is taken from google.
I've bought and received a SKMEI 9133, it's a kind of homage to a Submariner:
I like it because it's not too big (41 mm), I like blue, and it allready comes with a nato strap.
It was $8.79 from eBay (but I see they have raised the price to $9.55 now...).
I've tried a black nato strap on it and it looks good too, and I also like a black-gray-blue-gray-black strap on it.
Owh, if you buy one: there is removable protecting plastic film on the black bezel. It's hardly visible at first (I allready removed it in the picture).

Life is too short to drink from a half empty glass. Give me a glass half full of that fine aged kool aid please... OH YA!!
Curren 8210, got this from gearbest sale with only USD 6.6. It is nice solid watch. I always love white dials.
Also $16 USD
Had them about 2 years. I wear the one on the leather NATO frequently, no problems. The other I keep as a backup.

One thing I forgot to mention in my earlier message, the bezel does not rotate, it's fixed.
This is the lume after I shining a flashlight on it for a couple of seconds:
Very pretty, but the lume did not stay bright long, it faded after a while. Today the watch was on my desk the hole day, and after I took it into a darkened room it was only just visible. So, it's a little better than the usual chinese lume, but don't expect "real" lume.
The rear cover:
It looks like a screw-on cover, but it isn't, it is pressed on.
The cover does have a rubber seal, and the cover is very hard to get back on a again. I had to use a C-clamp very carefully (with the watch protected by a piece of rubber) to press it back on.
The mechanism is an S. Epson corp. model AL32A.
Because the strap is a bespoke strap with the same color as the watch, I wondered what it would look like with other strap designs:
The far left one is the one that came with the watch. I think the black one, and the far right one look quite good too.
