\r\n Cheap chinese 24h watch - is it even possible?\r\n

\r\n Hi guys,
\nthe ad of this thing keeps appearing on my FB feed in the last few days:
\n
\nName:  20170113183319_49052.jpg\r\nViews: 516\r\nSize:  233.1 KB
\nIt\'s sold on gearbest for about 8 €.
\nCould it possibly be a true 24h watch? Do ulta-cheap quartz movements of this type even exist? I don\'t think I have ever seen one before.
\nIt may certainly be a regular 12h watch with a dumb 24h face, however in the Q&A section of the site they say that it\'s truly a 24h.
\n
\nI usually try to stay clear of this type of cheap stuff, however I am finding the idea of getting my first 24h watch to "test the waters" for next to nothing a little appealing...
\nwhat do you think?\r\n

    \nI\'ve checked it now; you are totally right!
    \nWith this type of watches, when they do not look like a copy, it\'s just that you don\'t know what they\'re copying \r\n

    \r\n I decided to risk it for $8.88 with free shipping... There are questions on the web page that confirm it is a 24 hour movement. I don\'t think Botta sell a three-hand 24 hour watch, just one-hand and two-hand (hour + seconds). So it is clearly stylistically based on the Botta Uno, but not as close a copy as the Australian Uno Italia watches.

    \r\n The Chinese are certainly capable of producing anything they want to, and I am sure a 24 hr Seagull is a possibility if they see a market for it.\r\n

    \nThe Greenwich Time Gate watch in 24hour format used the Chinese TY2557 movement so I\'m sure they do now.

    \nDefinately a 12h watch with a wrong dial ...
    \r\nBut i have to admit: the watch looks like a BOTTA - and I love those minimalistic designs.
    \r\nPerhaps it could be fitted with a Ronda 515.24 Caliber ...

    \nIt\'s sold on gearbest for about 8 €.
    \nCould it possibly be a true 24h watch? Do ulta-cheap quartz movements of this type even exist? I don\'t think I have ever seen one before.
    \nIt may certainly be a regular 12h watch with a dumb 24h face, however in the Q&A section of the site they say that it\'s truly a 24h.
    \n
    \nI usually try to stay clear of this type of cheap stuff, however I am finding the idea of getting my first 24h watch to "test the waters" for next to nothing a little appealing...
    \nwhat do you think?

    \r\n I took a risk on a cheap chinese "24 hour" watch last year. It was six bucks. It was a 12 hour movement under a 24 hour dial. Seems the chinese don\'t understand the difference between 24 hour *dial* and 24 hour *movement.* Based on hand position, I\'d suspect that\'s the case with this watch as well.
    \n
    \nI dumped mine off at the thrift store in the donation box.
    \n
    \nThis was the offender in my case:

    \r\n Years ago I bought a leather "ready case" for a 1960s Rollei 35 compact 35mm camera on ebay. The original Rollei cases were very rare, and priced sky high if in excellent to mint condition. Turns out the seller in Hong Kong was a Rollei 35 enthusiast, who also had a leather purse (etc) factory. He started making the cases - exact and excellent quality repros of the originals - and sold a bunch of them on there at very reasonable prices.
    \n
    \nIf some smaller producer(s) of affordable good quality sport/dive/pilot watches in China were looking to catch a market, it might be worth dropping their marketing people a couple of lines. Pointing out that there is a market - a fair number of people have spent thousands a piece on 24 hour watches. The only competition in the lower price ranges are the Russian items, and a couple of others. That market could be expanded by even a limited line of low priced items say the $200 to $300 range that are homages to Glycine, Zodiac etc. I wouldn\'t mind an Airman homage as a beater.\r\n

    \nI am not sure that making 24-hour movements is hard, but there is not the same economy of scale that there is for 12-hour movements that allows for them to be cheap. There aren\'t many of us with the hankering for a true 24-hour watch.\r\n

    \nIts not hard. Just takes the will. Rhonda could easily do it. It just involves a change in gearing and more indexes on the dial.

    \nI have a 24 hr quartz clock I bought on eBay for less than $30. Just search eBay for: Trintec 24
    \n
    \nSome sellers are charging more than I paid, but they are not expensive.
    \n
    \nEdit: stupid me, Trintec have a website: trintec.com
    \nIf you want one of their 24 hour clocks buy direct - they are cheaper than most eBay sellers. They have watches too. If they received enough requests they might produce a purist 24 hour watch. Maybe not "Chinese cheap", but at least in the low to mid price bracket.\r\n

    \r\n The Skone watch finally arrived today, and I can confirm that it has a 12 hour movement. Oh well, maybe the battery will fit one of my other watches...

      Cheap chinese 24h watch - is it even possible?

      Hi guys,
      the ad of this thing keeps appearing on my FB feed in the last few days:

      It's sold on gearbest for about 8 €.
      Could it possibly be a true 24h watch? Do ulta-cheap quartz movements of this type even exist? I don't think I have ever seen one before.
      It may certainly be a regular 12h watch with a dumb 24h face, however in the Q&A section of the site they say that it's truly a 24h.

      I usually try to stay clear of this type of cheap stuff, however I am finding the idea of getting my first 24h watch to "test the waters" for next to nothing a little appealing...
      what do you think?
