Not my cup of tea, but looks well done
For the price, has to be machine sourced.

If I had the spare cash I would have picked one up.

^^^ ML usually is a bargain, and I mean that with all sincerity. It's a brand that sometimes offers a whole lot of bang for the buck, considering the quality. Some of their pieces that are truly innovative; their Masterpiece Mysterious (Floating Small) Seconds is the coolest watch I ever ever seen with my own eyes. Just about the most underrated brand out there.

Dunno why, on a watch that sort of engraving makes me vomit. 1920s-1930s engraved cases - OK. Engraved pocket watches - OK. But on a modern watch, this looks garish to me. I'd happily see that kind of engraving on something like a repro of a Civil War era percussion revolver, though.
