    Japan style pocket watch ID help

    I am not sure if it is vintage, but it has been passed on to me and I would like to know the details, if you could help me.
    Thank you!

    More like China style! The movement is the standard chinese wrist watch movement (in a derivative with moonphase):

    Chinese it may be, I was just stating what was written on it.
    It dates pre 1995 though

    I'm not sure if that is actually a window on the dial, or just a printed design. If it's actually a window it's likely to be a simple 24 hour/day night display rather than a true moon phase.

    The watch is reasonably modern, probably not much older than the 1990s I expect.

    Thanks for the info!
    It is not a window, its printed.
    I can see it has this black plastic around and I know it doesnt have high quality.
    Another thing I dont know is, what moon phase watches are, but I will look it up. Thanks again.
