Love the cushion-shaped divers. I can't keep their model numbers straight in my head. Most of the ones I see available are either beat to all hell or frankensteins.

Really fueled my nostalgia kick to find a Pogue in good shape- really hard to find nice ones. Mine got ripped off from my dorm room on my fourth day of college.

That exact same watch seems to get sold a lot...
It is the same pic, but me thinking most likely they are different watches, the dude seem to have a mother load of Seikos (heavy on Rados auto too)on hand or, know were to find and restore them around South East Asia...and his watchmaker does a very good job restoring BTW, I have seen some samples .

I've seen some of his West End pieces online and they look good. I'm really thinking about it since I love Pogues and it's one watch where a good restoration would be fine with me.

FWIW, I've had nothing but good experiences with Sophon; very responsive, all-around good guy. But, be very careful in looking at all of his listings; there's so much good stuff, your head will spin... :lol:

I have a Citizen Bullhead from sophon, it's super clean and runs great (even the chrono hand snaps back with a purpose). My watchmaker says all the moving parts are genuine Citizen but I have a feeling that the caseback, dial, hands are not.

39/40mm +-...some maybe a bit bigger, but not much.

Classic, classic designs! Like a submariner, there's a reason why these still sell in high demand on ebay and the forums. A lot more than i can say for some of the watches i see coming out today!
