    Vager Hauers from Jun Lao (Times International)

    Got a pair of this Miyota-based watch - a black one for myself and a grey one for ma Cherie.
    It's an interesting watch with 24 hr time with the markers in the form of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. I think the specs are great given the price of the watch including EMS shipping to Singapore.
    It comes in a humongous wooden box for those who like this sort of thing.

    Specs:
    Diameter: 40mm excluding crown / Thickness: 11.35mm
    Weight: 80 grams / Lug width: 20mm
    Movement: Japan-made Miyota 8217 automatic
    Vager Hauers model No. T841024
    Case material: fine stainless steel
    Band material: Italian calf leather (I highly doubt it) with butterfly deployment buckle
    Crystal: sapphire
    Color of hands: silver
    Unique features: 100% Chinese characters, not a single alphabet is found at front. Traditional 12 Shi-Chen sub-dial, small second hand & date

    That's a beautiful watch. Unconventional but very coherent. I especially like the way the sub-dials cross the central axis to make a more readable display without increasing the size of the watch. The traditional Chinese time scale is the focal point of the watch rather than just an added decoration.

    Thank you. I guess it's more meaningful to one who understands Chinese traditional life.

    I'm interested in an all chinese dial, but this is not my taste. I know the seller also has another model with a strange shaped date hand, but again I'm not convenced. But the idea of only hanja characters is very good. Hope there will be more of them in the future.

    Does anyone know if that's a true moonphase on the watch with the white dial?

    It certainly looks like it. Besides which, the item description on good-stuffs confirms it.
