    Nice to see that one again Tony. I recall you got in person on a trip to China.

        Gone are the days when a column-wheel controlled megaquartz was so accessibly priced. I used to see many of these Calibre 2100 on eBay, and though I believe a larger number was produced, people who have them now are certainly not putting them on the market very much. Can't seem to find any, new or used, below the NZ$750 mark. Awesome piece of machinery that, had Citizen marketed better, would have received as much respect as Seiko's Spring Drive technology.

      Tony, I've been looking at Date-pointer type triple date watches, initially vintage 1950s, usually equipped with one of the A Schild triple date movement, e.g. AS 1380. Unfortunately, apart from these older watches not having in-house movements, they are usually very small sub-33mm pieces, fragile due to their age, and rather expensive. A Shanghai B series like yours here (https://www.timekeeper.co.nz/forum/w...onphase-review )would fit the bill for me, but they are hard to find outside of China. Most Chinese triple date available to me at the moment are easier to execute sub-dial date style, not date pointers.

      I have seen some Ingersoll watches with the Shanghai B, but of course, would prefer a Shanghai B inside a Shanghai. Yours is lovely. Thanks for sharing again.

          Seiko certainly produces it's share of stunning timepieces at price points that are impossible to match - so much to like about that one
