    I am blown away by the quality and value of this Sugess hand-winding chrono

    This was part of a big (multi-watch) Taobao order that I put serious work into, mulling over it for weeks. I was intrigued the moment I saw these, and, upon arrival, it very much exceeds my expectations. Getting this for $142 plus shipping and Chinese purchasing agent fee feels like stealing. I've owned a lot of watches, and it looks and feels like a watch worth about five times that.

    Sapphire crystal and Sea-Gull ST1901 movement.

    The seller has these in an ivory-colored dial on brown leather as well. And a version with a moonphase (using the Sea-Gull ST1908 movement), also in both those colors. The moonphase ones are $171 (!) Here's a pic:

    Cool! Is the moonphase a true moonpbase or day/night?

    Based on the movement, it's a true moonphase.

    That seems very cheap for a moonphase.

    For someone unfamiliar with the whole Chinese purchasing agent side of things (and for who the TaoBao verification isn't working), have you found any other way to get your hands on one of these? Particularly the Ivory moonphase...

    Awesome! Great price.

    I can't find this info... is the st1908 a 59 or 135-tooth gear on the moonphase drive? The difference is one day inaccuracy every 2 years vs. 122 years.

    Moon phase with shipping to US ends up being $270 and the dual subdial ones come out to $245
