    Unbranded PAM249 – Aliexpress

    I have been lusting over a Calif Dial for years. They have always been sold out.
    I’m contemplating pulling the trigger on this unbranded cheapie. Claiming to have the Seagull ST3600-1 I find this to be an OK purchase for 95 bucks .
    I will order the black hands as they are closer to the GEN blue hands.

    My question, do the case look fat and the dial markings too large ?

    If it floats , flies or fucks it's probably cheaper to rent!

        I would not consider this in comparison with any gen model, but in the absence of alternatives - I think everything is fine. If something is wrong, then in general, it looks proportional and aesthetically pleasing. I think that for this money, more is not needed.

                      I’m not advocating for Aliexpress cheapies but this was a pleasant surprise for under 100 bucks. I just ordered another one with blue hands. Even the strap is acceptable. I’m gonna vintage the strap up with shoe polish later. Keeps good time as well.

                              How are the lug screws, which has been a problem before on old SF models
