I received this morning this very nice dual-movements Joshua & Sons
It's the first time I hear from this brand
I placed my order last week ; it only took one week to arrive from HK to France
It's a FP Journe "Octa" homage.

On to the pics :
Very good initial impression. Heavy watch, stainless steel case
Onion crown on the right…
… regular crown on the left (signed J&S)
Deployant clasp… usually, this type is a royal pain… that one isn't too bad
The tiny date window (the date is set on the first position of the left movement's crown)
On my 17,5cm wrist, the watch is big, but not insanely huge
For each version (beige, blue or black dial), you can choose whatever strap you want (blue, black or brown).
I went for the blue one.
The other versions :
and the proposed straps (to be specified, when placing the order)
Available at agfwatches
A really nice watch, quite unusual
There was a problem on mine : the left movement doesn't work (the barrel spring might be broken)
I immediately contacted agfwatches, who responded shortly after.
Communication was good.
He offered to send a new watch, if I accepted to pay for the shipping costs (8$).
That was the simpler solution, so I agreed.
I asked if he could send me the blue dial model with a brown strap, which he accepted
I'll keep you posted on the further progresses.
Til now, even with this slight setback, I'm very pleased with this purchase
