    There's more than one seller, I sure haven't had such experiences myself.

    Re: Starking Automatic

    Has anyone else noticed this other Starking? The dial looks more interesting to me, I quite like the red fume, despite the weird date placement. Hopefully it has the same high-beat movement (there's a video embedded in the aliex*** page and looks high-beat to me).

    I wouldn't vouch for the beat rate from that video, they may as well have used a higher frame rate to play back the video.

    While I think it is wise to be sceptical about Ali listing claims, even if they speed up the frame rate, the watch will still only manage the same number of beats to it’s own second. So provided one counts the seconds on the watch in the video rather than timing it externally, one should be able to establish the beat rate

    Given the video has enough frame rate at all to not hide any of the steps. Although this could only work in the advantage of the beat rate. A slomo replay is still desired then.

    Starking created its own movement manufacturer, Shenzhen Jingrui Movement Company, and thus produces all its movements in-house. This includes everything from tourbillons to quartz calibers. All their SK Series automatics are high beat, 28,800 bph. The SKL open heart movements run at 21,600 bph.

    Hi, did anyone check if the dial is sapphire coating or whole sapphire?

    I've got 2 of the AM0184s, the first, with white dial was DOA, sounds like Brightling007 is spot-on about the variable quality control on these movements.

    The second one is a black dial which I've been wearing for about a week now. Seems to keep excellent time - early days but only been losing about 2 seconds per day so far. Put it on a NATO partly as I couldn't work out how to shorten the steel bracelet.

    Has a small bit of what looks like glue residue inside the edge of the crystal at 2 o'clock, which is a little annoying.

    Seller has agreed to replace the white one.
