    Re: Starking Automatic

    I don´t think is a Eta clone.. balance wheel is completly different... and in other possition.
    Starking asures is is own movement.... even on their web... they call it 1813 caliber...

    1813-?????
    They have even a PDF with the drawing of it.
    http://www.starkingwatch.com/upload/...01708/1813.pdf

    I think is a simple DG2813 who Starking has change escapement regulator to increasse alternances per hour...




    Anyways.. I have buyed one Starking watch... Soo When I have it here I promise many photos as you want... :P

    That one is definitely a DG; it has the DG stamp under the balance and there is a slight curve on the pallet-cock. The other ones that we've seen have been NN. The NN28 movements are (apart from minor details) the same as the previous generation of DG28/38. Perhaps DG offer a 28,800bph escapement and NN do not. I think that this faster-beating version might be the one that we have previously seen listed as DG4813.

    Do you know any watches with Chinese high beat movements that are not 2824 clones? Recently my taste has been gravitating towards high beats (the smoother sweep is just more pleasing to look). I have ETA and two clones of it in collection. But want to know others besides the Japanese 9015 (also why is it harder to get watches with Seiko 28800 beat movements??)

    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:

    Re: Starking Automatic

    Mine has arrived two days ago. Really impressive watch for the money.

    The movement is really 4hz and is nothing like a ETA clone... it seems to me a miyota clone (maybe a 4813 but not a DG, it has another symbol grabbed like a SK "Starking" logo maybe)

    Re: Starking Automatic

    I just got this watch today and I'm quite impressed - I don't know if it has a stainless steel case or a saphire crystal, but I like the 28,000 bph plus hacking and handwinding. The onlydownside being a slightly off-centre date window, the rest of the watch is rather beautifully finished.

    It looks like they will be $37.70 during the AliX Anniversary Sale. Where did you find them for $31?
