    Haval watch with Solga movement

    This Swiss Made watch just sold on the bay for peanuts. I like the dial... but what the heck is the movement? Solga - Jerusalem??

    I think it means it was made by Solga in Jerusalem :)

    So, not Swiss Made? What is Solga, what is Haval?

    Hi there,

    Occasionally signatures aren't the naked truth: The HB 115 movement was made in Germany, the shock protection is a Super Shock Resist and no Incabloc as stated on the dial. So why should one mind the other signatures?

    Which, for the purpose of those who need it spelt out a little more clearly, means: cobbled together from bits!

    By putting a HB 115 in the watch actually made it more valuable then a ordinary AS movement. Just find a Made in Germany dial and it's the real deal again.
