Thread: Shanghai Ren Chen reissue

  1. #1

    Shanghai Ren Chen reissue

    I was just browsing Good-Stuffs and saw this, which I think is a new model.
    It looks gorgeous, and I've been very happy with the cheap Shanghai reissues (He Ping, etc) that I own, but for 4x the price this needs to be a lot more watch. Does anyone have any experience of it?

    I notice that the movement is a NOS SS7 from 1970

    Yes, the canvas strap is a nice touch, too

    To be honest, I would not spend the money on it.
    The SS7 movement is nothing special. You can find it in numerous $30 shanghai watches on the bay.I don't see what's so special about that movement. The 611 reissues are much nicer and a fraction of the price.
    Perhaps there's something I don't see?

    +1

    I would however be tempted with the retrograde seconds 529-5-45 shown on the same page

    Ingot had it's own velvet case too

    The watch box is huge, buries the watch.

    Noticed these on their tmall site a few years ago, have trouble with google translate due to text in pics.

    When Jun listed last year at a much reduced price.... came at the same time as the jubilee nato got on sale, knew had to get one of those just no watch that would work imo....don't you just love it when a plan comes together
