    That's really nice. I think just the brand logo is way too big, but aside of that it's really good looking watch.

    These are actually pretty cool looking watches! 45mm is way too big for me, though... at 40-41mm I'd be interested.
    It's refreshing for a company to be so open about the origin of it's Chinese movements-- perhaps this is indicative of a growing acceptance of China made watches/movements.
    Also indicative of the growing use of Chinese movements by European based start-ups and smaller established brands due to Swatch Group/ETA "wait listing" or squeezing the supplies of movements to smaller companies. I've recently noticed that in the UK, RLT Watch Co. put out five new models using Chinese Seagull Unitas, and a new company, Fitzroy watches, is using Swiss finished Seagull chronograph movements.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    Not bad actually, I don't think I'd own one, but if they help spark a youth interest in mechanicals, maybe a good thing.

    Too many watches, only two wrists and never enough time...
