    I do however agree with some of the comments about the keyless works. I have the same issue with my Beijings, date setting is sometimes hit and miss, lots of jump in the hands when pushing crown in and the crown stem did break on the first ZunJue. The old movements, both BS2 and SB5, feel better. Even the tongji.

    Same issues when reading the Chinese forums. Not a lot of love for the B18.

    very sorry to say, not much info so ...

    SB18 in the BeiHai and a little pilot from Roland are fine. B18 in the Everest is too, except date setting, don't bother most of the time.
    Same goes for the 20 auto. ZunDa is ace, not one of theirs afaik, pity.
    Wonder what the new Citizen are like, big at 41, but should be sound , hopefully

    I have three SB18's, one in the Celadon, one in the BeiHai, and the ZhuFeng. My opinion is that the the Celadon is slightly better than the BeiHai, which is definitely better than the ZhuFeng. (SB18-1 I think).
    I cannot quantify it, it's more a feeling.

    Unfortunately the stem of the ZhuFeng broke, so it doesn't get much wear anymore. I guess I should ask Ben or Jun if they can arrange one at Beijing..

    I tried Jun with my ZunJue, he had no contact to get spare parts
