    I have a Swatch White Track with a black band. I don't have a decent close up camera so here's a stock pic:

    Swiss ETA C01.211 automatic mechanical chronograph movement, based on the Lemania 5100. Times to six hours, not that anyone ever seems to care about a chronograph's ability to actually time things. I paid $175 new, plus another $15 for the replacement band.

    G gerlach chronographs (with the exception of the enigma) all appear to use the seagull ST1902 movements and they're all under the $600 mark.

    63c118 is remarkable for a Swiss Made automatic chronograph at $348 USD new including shipping. This one was shipped out of a flooded Houston warehouse a few days after Hurricane Harvey struck Texas last week. It actually arrived last Friday, but FedEx tracking site still says "not available for pickup". Took a chance and went to pickup site today and they had it.

    The Hamilton twins: Jazzmaster Auto Chrono in stainless steel and rose gold plated, bought them for 420€ (jeweler's display model, discontinued) and 470€ (used).

    Great call on the Accu Swiss Murren. Love the blue dial. Ordered mine today. Thanks!

    These Swiss Made chronos were all under $360USD each including shipping



    The black Tellaro was only $266.

    I opened up my Bulova Accu-Swiss Tellaro today and an inscription says "7750". Could the Tellaros actually have ETA/Valjoux 7750 movements rather than Sellita SW500s?

    Interesting info. Out of curiosity, what did you use to get the case back open? I've never seen screw heads like that.
