    Chicks

    No - don't worry about the heading - its a watch!

    It arrived today, and is a nice stainless steel watch that comes in at 35mm.



    I saw it on ebay and thought I recognised the name. Some searching on WUS and I found this thread over in Chinese:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f72/zhu...em-587398.html

    which identifies Chicks as a Hong Kong department store.



    So I bid on it and got it for --- £1.70.



    The strap was in poor shape, so I treated it to this genuine Armani strap. I know its real 'cos I took it off my brother-in-law's brand new watch last Christmas and swapped it for an extra long one that fitted him better - he's not very small.



    I think its a Chinese standard movement, but I'll check in the Chinese mechanical forum.



    Quite pleased with it for the price.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    I saw the title and thought 'oh no, more moderating!' LOL

    Interesting shock protection. How does it time? (... but, at that price, who cares?)

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thanks Eeeb! Its keeping very good time so far.

    Saskwatch in the Chinese mechanical forum tells me that SZN is a code of Nanchang Watch Factory, and confirms that it is a Chines standard movement: http://www.tractionink.com/watch_wik...ndard_Movement

    LOL. Great title ... and watch. It seems to be a steal for that $.

    Nice to see others out there interested in the obscure cool pieces and not just the prestige.

    Nice...I guess you can tell your friends (without lying) that you can still get the "Chicks"...
