Dial is beautiful! Marker alignment okay, lume (dispersion) okay.
Case is solid, brushing of top the of the lugs is rough but so much better than polished!
Screw-down crown has only half a twist of grip, I wonder how long that will last.
Movement is noisy (I don't mind about that) and 30 s/d fast while wearing.
Bracelet is mediocre at best. The hollow endlinks rattle a bit, last middlelink to the strap is hollow and loose and sticks out a bit, clasp feels cheap but works fine.
All 'n all an okay deal, but certainly not worth more than the price I paid at Alpha Europe. I bought it because I want to know if my dream watch (Rolex Explorer 1) isn't going to bore me after a while before I (can) spend allmost 10.000 on a real one. I guess it will do that job just fine.

Very good homage! Absolutely bang for buck
Very good watch for the price. Good finishing, good fit.
The only downsize is the bracelet screws are very small and dificult to remove compared to the 39mm bracelet version
Hello, this is a new version of the oyster band and it has a split push pins and not a screws for easier removing.
I recently got my 36mm alpha and I have to say I'm impressed, great little beater watch and its keeping good time too, had to make a little modification on the bracelet catch which was too hard to open but easy done. Great service from alpha Europe too , I will buy again from them.
The watch dial with its applied numerals and indices is one of best I've seen. What I also like is that it has screw-in crown, a flat sapphire and a solid caseback (see-through casebacks I only suggest for decorated movements). And I think the movement, the Sea-Gull ST1612 is beyond any doubt.
Dear Alpha, what about making an Airking or Milgauss homage using this same 36mm watch case?
