    Need help on this Akribos automatic watch

    Found this at a yard sale over the weekend for 5 bucks. Not sure if it's womens or mens. A younger, perhaps college-age woman sold it to me, but it was a whole family selling stuff. By the style, I would think it's a womens. It's 42mm across, not including the crown. I can't find anything about this exact model online, either on eBay or just plain old Google. Model number on the back says AK50016. Any help?

    Not sure of the model but it is one of the affordable mechanical Watch brands. I would classify it as unisex. Nice find for $5.

    @JimDon: Thanks, it seems like a mens watch in terms of size but a womens in terms of styling. I'll probably list it as either or.

    I believe it's one of the many names used on watches made in China, which seems there are many now. I found a ultra complicated tourbillion mechanical watch under the name Akribos.
