I know this because 1) this caliber is what's used in the Stuhrling Original 'Montague,' and it is definitely a Chinese Standard movement (albeit a very well-finished one) and 2) I have actually modded this particular watch with hands from a pocketwatch purchased from one of those eBay "mushroom brands", which also definitely used a (lower-quality) skeletonized Chinese Standard movement.
    Thanks for that I'll add it in.

    Sorry that you're having trouble registering. I'm sure the admin is not far away.

    Hi guys - the wiki was recently infected with malware via a PHP-injection attack. I've spent the afternoon repairing the site and it should now be clean. Please report it here if you notice any further issues with the wiki. Thanks!

    I am getting warnings from Google when I try to access it five days after your last post.

    That's a shame. I hate those weirdos that mess up useful stuff like that.

    Malware warnings. Really wish someone would fix that.

    I'd like to see some information as to how long some (all) of the companies have been producing watch cases.
    The wiki makes it seem as if this is a new development.
    Hong Kong/China watch and watch case production aren't anything recent. I've had high-quality 1960s Bulova watches and others with Hong Kong cases.

    I know this has been mentioned before but google is STILL reporting it as an attack site. Can the site owner, whoever it is, let google know it's not an attack site so the warning can be removed?

    Hi mmacleodbrown, I refrained from replying initially since I'm guessing the watch you are buying is mine, but since no one has responded, please see the discussion here -
    A brand new SB18 movement from Beijing

    Let me know if you need anything cleared up and I will ask Beijing.

    As for quality, BWAF movements tend to be more interesting and beautiful compared to their equivalent Seagull movements - eg the SB18 vs the ST 18. They are 100% Beijing developed as well.
