Got the Swiss Army after seeing Chris's but the movement was not keeping time well and noticed it would stop for a few seconds once in awhile, the winding was very stiff compared to my other mechanical 6497-8's. I decided to replace it with a new one then ran across this, got it for under $50. It keeps perfect time now and looks pretty cool. put on another strap I had because the one on the watch was 2mm narrow at the lugs.

This is Out of this World Ron ! a movement swap Alien a movement swap Icon_biggrin The ease at which you take
apart watches, and put them back together even better than they
were before is astonishing ! a movement swap Icon_eek This watch was pretty great in stock

better, but also one of a kind ! On top of that, the decoration, along

THAT is pretty friggin' cool! When you said that you were going to replace the 6498 Figured it would just be with one of the Asian made you can get pretty cheap on the 'net. That Hammy is a thing of beauty!! Amazing! a movement swap Icon_cheers
