I got into Chinese watches mainly because I thought the price in comparison with the offering was really good. And now I got across this watch. I bought it in an impulse for 54.86 euro from Ali (amazon UK price is around 110 euros) and this price includes:
- Seiko NH35 automatic movement (I saw a listing with a miyota movement as well)
- 316 stainless steel case
- Ceramic bezel insert
- Solid links/solid endlinks
- Sapphire crystal
- 10 Atm water resistance (at least another member in the Aliexpress thread says he has swam a couple of times in a pool with no troubles - I want the water resistance for surface swimming and this seems to be capable of that).
If you like the design, what else would you want from a watch?
It will replace my Tevise T801, mainly because it will be a usable automatic and water resistant.
The thing is what can the Chinese do more than this? The Tevise T802A is a fully working automatic watch for ~20 euros, this Pagani shows what can be accomplished for 55 euros and in the ~90 euro mark you get the parnis diver with all that this pagani has to offer (with a miyota movement) but with real 20 atm water resistance.
I would like to see what a 150 euro Chinese watch could offer...
