    Learned the hard way, thru an impulse purchase, that Ferrari branded watches are over-priced chinese fashion watches. The dials may not to do anything but provide decoration.

    The "Swiss Made" is easily circumvented by putting a Swiss movement into an Asian-made case and strap.

    I like mine, and you like yours, but a $100 watch is a $100 watch.

    If you paid any more than $0.50 then you paid too much

    The top photo really shows the flaws BIG time. Look at the *horrible* finish on that minute hand.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Swiss Made is a flat-out lie; the Ferrari trademarks are being used illegally, so what's one more?

    You paid too much if they didn't pay you to take it off their hands.

    50 cents is still too generous, I wouldn't pay a penny for that rubbish fake.

    Unfortunately this is a fake - cheapo chinese with no chance of any Swiss content and likely unauthorized use of Ferrari logo.
    The subdials likely do nothing practical - the left subdial has 14 index marks - likely to indicate day of the week, and the right one has a scale of 12 - likely duplicating hours\months - but in either cases both subdials are as useful for chronograph purposes as nipples on a breastplate.

    And the exposed balance wheel is a trademark of cheap junk watches. So value $10-15 at most, and subtract $20 for the fakeness - so hopefully they paid you to take this.
