    Any information/advice on it , the (russian? ) handwind movement , would be greatly appreciated
    Is it rareish? Is it in everything ? Is it tuppence happeny rubbish or what ?

    The obvious no for me is the garish strap, but that can be sorted easily enough I suppose, just extra money. (They do a black strap version, but with gold markers on the dial which I think look really wrong in photo's)
    The other slight no is it's titanium, just wish it was steel to literally add weight to it, but you can't have everything

    It's only £64 delivered so what am I missing ?

    From the little I could find out about this watch is that it's made in the same Chinese factories that produce Junkers and Zeppelin watches. The movements used seem to vary depending on what is available on any particular day.

    The mfrg location of Junkers/Zeppelin was discussed before and they are made in Germany. So i believe Ruhla is made there as well (Correct me if I'm wrong).

    I was tempted to get the 21-21 as well and did do some research on it. The official website lists its movement as SARJA 2009B-21 jewels. According to Welcome to USSR Time!, it's used in Nurse's brooch watch for hospital/medical use.

    The rest, I just based on what the watch is primary marketed with; Titanium & Sapphire Crystal, basically features where you have to pay a slight premium for.

    All-in-all, I always try to remind myself that I get what I pay for as it seems this watch seems too good to be true.
    However, at the price, the risk is mitigated.

    You may have just resurrected my interest again :)

    Do you think it's possible to luck into a JLC, VC, or AP movement if it happens to be a Chinese holiday?

    Do you have any evidence? I would like to address the salesmen at the next exhibition in Munich!
