Did u miss the pic of the lovely 1016 😅 My bad as the image did not show on my 🍎phone. Must have been due to Huawei attack 😬 Just kidding

Not your fault, but must be related to the US China thing...

Movado offered it a few years ago at about $3K retail and much less on the street. It should have been a big hit. No Zenith movement like the original, of course, but even if that were possible, it would have more than doubled the price. So, it has a 2894...

What do you think of that Laco?

Comfy? The lugs kind of throw me off though I've never had a chance to try one on or see one in person.

Thank you for asking Thegrailwatch! The Laco is a lot of watch for its price and quality...

 By: Subexplorer : July 20th, 2019-17:06
... And though agree with you the lugs are a bit akward looking the design follows the original design and wears comfortable as it is not a very big watch nor heavy. Im very happy with it. You should try it on your wrist though and feel it. You can choose... 

Abel, your Doxa looks superb in the photos !...
