I really like this watch.

It's very similar to the Secometer, isn't it?:confused1:
The dial is identical to the Secometer, and the movement is the same (987S). When I first saw one for sale, I thought that it was a recased Secometer and passed.

I have found several for sale on ebay. If listed as a Vancott, they sell for a good price ($200+). If not listed as a Vancott, they can go for much less.
