Sure they don't hummmmm but they are way cheaper and I really like them. Classic 70's big chunks of metal lurvveee. I've got 4 of them in a few styles. Of course this one won't get shipped O.S and I really want it...I've got one in the same style in S.S, not gold electroplate.
I dig that chunky 70 Benrus also. That's a nice looking, distinctive looking watch. With an hour to go on the auction, still low price but it should go up quickly with the amount of bidders. No gurantee it'll work though due to the seller not having a battery. Those can be a gamble, as I'm sure you know.
