just as I was scrolling through the page that you linked through lunarin, i was telling myself nah, they're not really my type.....

till i stopped at Heritage. LOL the quality does seem questionable and lacking; that's for sure.

the Heritage is nice, at $123, it's still a reasonable pickup :lol:

seen the actual watch before and I feel it's quite value for money.

Just that 18mm lugwidth..hmm.

yeah, not too shabby - the hurricane.

i think i'm in love with the domed glass of heritage looking watches.. like the cheena zeppelin lz129.

Erm... not Ah Tiong company actually... It's truly German, made by POINTTEC.
The movements are some percentage Eastern though... but mostly Jippun.
