WatchOtaku : OWC MS-5517

OWC MS-5517

Release 1 MS-5517, with custom Seagull ST2100 movement, a clone of the ETA 2836 day-date movement. Alas, the day and date have no aperture and are thus kind of mystical.

Hand-drilled lugs, aluminum bezel insert.

Quick notes and overall review

Read the review - awesome watch! Finally, a Rolex style that has a full bezel, no cyclops and at a price real people can afford.
