    From the official description on their site, the movement:

    "Caliber 98 Mechanical Hand Winding Swiss Made 16 lines, full skeleton hand made with blue screw"

    I can accept not using ''' ... but not the wrong word.

    Plus, all this lovely old technical experience...but 60% of the men's models are quartz; the 3-handers are Ronda 500-series. The autos...one I looked at listed an IT 20. Never heard of it. TT 20? Maybe. 2 others say Sellita 200...but one claims a 48 hour PR.

    Way too many red flags for my taste.

    The calibre 98 looks awfully like a 6498 with a modified beat rate and tasteless skeletisation.
