Hi guys,happy to share with you another find at the local flea market. I always knew there were the Armitron LC415 and the Gruen as Seiko D031 clone. Now we have to add another one branded Lotus (still in business and located in Spain if i don`t wrong).Bought as not working due battery leakeage:

Congrats Simone, exceptional catch!
...never seen nor suspected that LOTUS made a D031 clone...thanks for showing it to us. :Prost:
Every watch should have its own story...consequently, a watch collector has to be a good storyteller :)
