Guess what I found on Amazon?
A Starking Rooster Automatic watch. Should I get it?
Edit: Never mind, found it:
"STARKING Men Rooster Cock Self Winding Automatic Sapphire AM0242 Black Leather Waterproof Wrist Watch"
I'd likely never wear it, but still my mouse finger itches when I contemplate the words "Buy it now." If I were certain it had the 4Hz movement I'm so curious about, I might not be able to resist.
Edit again: Ali (where it's $8 or $9 more) says it's the 28800 HIGH BEATS MOVEMENT, so yeah, I may have to buy this.

I'd be curious to see some natural lighting photos of this watch. The listing shows some heavily processed wrist shots that give some sense of the textures. Looks promising.

It's a Chopard clone. I should have guessed. Oh well.
Not sure who contributed the correlation, but hat tip to the folk in the "A comprehensive list of Ali Express homages" thread for that info.
I know many don't have the same distaste for clones that I do, but isn't there something wrong when a Chinese company has to copy their Year of the Rooster watch from a foreign design?
The Chinese have an excellent style of their own, they probably just don't trust it enough to be the style that will sell well internationally.
They know for a fact European designs do...
I want a year of the chicken watch. I bought. Only 4 left.
My Starking Chicken watch arrived. No date. Which is good. The date on my other Starking seems to jump around. Maybe I shook it when the date was changing. Not going to bother returning a $44 watch as long as it works.
