Great donor watches for projects

Post by blueradish »

Just tripped across this cheaper than cheap brand. Have to assume it got a shite movement, but at these prices they are fantastic for mods and projects. Prices seems to be around $25.

Nice idea.

That watch is similar to the Loreo ASCIIwhite posted

Incredible! How is it possible to earn even one cent on a watch that cheap...?

I remember when you posted that. They likely came from the same factory and just re-branded. How do you like yours, I'm tempted to grab on for amazon. $25 free shipping to my door.

I'll let you know when it arrives. ASCIIwhite said it was decent and that the dial and hands had the correct shape (bent).

It has arrived. The watch looks great :thumbup:

The bracelet is really neat and has a magnetic clasp.

Here is a video of it

The caseback has screws :thumbup:
But the hand tips don't look like they are bent.
It has decent lume.

Can't beat it, that is a nice piece for the price. Looks good on the wrist and that magnetic strap is really neat.
