Can't hurt to give it a try, even though I'm shit outta luck in lotteries. Count me in.

FYI

There "may" be a vintage Orient in the karma also, but I'm unsure if the movement needs work or not. Going to see how it runs

After a looong wait (no thanks to the USPS facility in Chicago and long handling locally in PL by the Polish Post), my Karma finally arrived!

And here it is...
Two black Timexes:
Image
Both are cool, I have a soft spot for Timex. The very first watch I bought as a teenager was a Timex Expedition. Still have it. And glad to have some more!

Speaking of Timex, here's the star of the show:
Image
A 1978 Timex hand-cranker. With the dial made in England, I presume it came from the Timex factory in Dundee, Scotland, which closed its doors after a massive strike in 1993. The case and dial are in great shape.

Armitron quartz:
Image

And an Orient 3-star diver-style piece:
Image
The Orient's a revival project - alas, its movement gave up. Dunno, low temp in transport or whatnot. However, cosmetically looks like new, so one day it'll be revived.

And then there are strap and bracelet tools...and a NATO:
Image
The NATO is great, already put it on my Selhor Diver 05. Properly supple and with well-made loops, no problem with tucking in the excess once buckled.

I say it's good Karma!
