    Re: Starking Automatic

    Lucky for you. my Starking rooster watch came DOA. The watch hands and flywheel do not move at all even when handwound / shaken. Not sure what I should do - return it, ask for a replacement or a refund.

    If you still like the look of the watch, go for a replacement :)

    Yes you are correct. Easy regulation as per most mechanicals.
    I moved it from +30 sec to +7 sec. Beat error from factory was 0.1 ms.

    Regulation went from 23spd to 3spd and position error is about 6 sec.

    Also hands, dial and bracelet are very good for the money.

    My watch is running at +2 sec out of the box. Really impressive

    Re: Starking Automatic

    I'm super interested in purchasing this watch, but had a couple of quick questions that I'm hoping an owner of the watch might be able to answer: (1) Does the white dial have any sunburst or texture to it, or is it just flat/plain? (2) I have small wrists, so am wondering what the lug-to-lug length is?

    Just plain and flat but that just makes the well finished applied markers and hands shine all the more.

    Lug to lug about 44mm.

    Hi. Does someone know if the movement is a clone of 9015 or 2824?

    If its a clone it seems to be more similar to 2824 than 9015. At least what I see from the pics

    Do you have a photo of the movement?

    The only movement that looks like a Miyota 9015 is a Miyota 9015. There are several makers of clones of the ETA 2824-2 both in Switzerland and China.

    The photos that I have seen of Starking movements do not resemble the 2824. For example, this one looks like a Nanning NN2813:


    ...and this one also has an NN28:
