- - - is a Southampton. For newer members, this was a standard TIMEX movement with a "flyback" chrono seconds hand. Its easily spotted by the dial having tracks and of course it has an extra button to stop/start to use for timing! :|

Not too common, I'll try to find a picture, but if you see one, please let me know - if'n you HAVE one I'll take it in a second or so! :P

I'm after one of these as well.

There is currently one for sale on eBay that has a cracked crystal and is missing the crown. Unfortunately the seller is asking $399!

I made what I thought was a fair offer and he has thus far ignored me.

That figgers Matt, whilst rare-ish, those who know will inflate prices acordingly, same with Ben Hogan belt lip wathes, and the Dorado 18K. Some sellers are pushing the pries for Dorado-ish look-a-like (goldtone with a crown on the dial) pieces by selling them as a Dorado, but not mentioning they are the standard Electric. :roll:

A question will usually get the answer they are part of the Dorado range. IMO that's cheeky and slightly misleading ;)

Of course if it adds say $50 upwards - - - - -
