@Iceblue  its a Sportsline swiss 17 jewel and thats all i know other than i like it a lot Very Happy
i did a little review a while back:

o the watches job lot arrived this morning and apart from the crap packing where all the watches were bundled unprotected in a plastic bag, i am delighted
just a quick sift through and i was right...there was a Citizen 8600....this is the one with the flashing LED at 12, very rare, i took off the battery hatch fearing the worst and there was no battery and it was spotless inside, popped a battery in and its running perfectly, it would easily pass for NOS cheers

the one i though may be a Sicura........isnt !  its a "Sportline" ??  super quality, lemania movement and running strongly at the risk of ridicule.its omega standard.
there are so many gems  i dont know where to start, seiko, citizens, quartz mechanical Swiss russian etc
there is even a solid silver trench watch and its running too Shocked

here's the Sportline.this really interests me, it needs a major clean, its disgusting and obviously needs a pusher, luckily the crystal although scratched is in





LOOK AT THE DNA


its now sorted and serviced, but no other info available anywhere Crying or Very sad
