This watch has its following amongst collectors of Chinese mechanical watches. It features a Chinese version of a Swiss Venus chronograph design. None of the Asian movements are as good as their Swiss counterparts in our opinion. Regardless, they are interesting watches and fun to wear and collect, but we recommend that new collectors not overdue it with Asian watches and instead save their money for watches with Swiss, American, and German-made movements. Buy a few and enjoy them, some manufacturers are better than others. Their real Tourbillons are some of their most fascinating watches. Their chronographs are interesting but we highly recommend, for this watch, you go-easy on the chronograph buttons. We’ve seen a number of these with failed pushers and pusher mechanisms. You need to be gentler and easier than on any Swiss chronograph.
