Olympia Star Tritium Tube Automatic ETA 2836-2


Here’s a brand you don’t hear about too often – manufactured mainly for the SE Asian market and mainly available in Thailand, Burma and China, OP (Olym Pianus) are known chiefly for their Rolex style designs. However, they have just introduced a tritium tube based automatic which is amazing value for money when compared to what I consider to be the closest competitor, Ball Watches. The overall quality is superb and the watch comes on an equally well made solid link bracelet.
