    Hard to tell from photo.
    But to me, it looks more modern than vintage.
    I could be way off however.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Hello :)

    Thanks for the reply.

    I just got word that it is in a fact a low grade Chinese movement.

    Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to be honest.

    Yes I agree it does look vintage, however it's most likely just some rubbish off a Chinese production line.

    My first thought was something of decent quality as I seen several dials which would therefore mean several complications, which in theory would make it somewhat valuable.

    But now that I found out that its made in China and that the secondary stopwatch dials don't even work.

    Let's just say its not even worth me finishing this text is it! lol

    Thanks for sharing your opinion :)

    Regards

    You'll probably find that the sub-dials are date (day of month, day of week, etc). There are a disturbing number of watches out there advertised as "Chronograph" that are actually just triple-date (so more accurately described as "Chronograph-style" I guess). But since I don't think there is a legal "definition" of the word "chronograph" (as applies to the marketing of the watches), they keep doing it.
