    Golgen jiaolong deep sea diver


    Commemorating dive in 2012

    On June 27, 2012, the Jiaolong with two oceanauts reached a depth of 7,062 metres (23,169 feet) in the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific Ocean.

    Only states imported automatic movement so guessing Miyota. But like the look of it.

    Brad at eastwatchreview.com said on Insta that he will have a short write up tomorrow. He apparently got a hands-on.

    Hmm... article up now on above watch

    http://www.eastwatchreview.com/blog/...tic-dive-watch

    actually says Swiss movement, doesn't say which though. sw200?

    Must say I'm a bit tempted at RMB 2169 (https://tw.taobao.com/item/523817244...283.0.0.nbbJyc)

    [QUOTE=Martin;226669]I've seen that embroiled dial on a Maison Celadon watch, didn't I?
    -edit- http://www.maisonceladon.com/suzhou-embroidery.html

    He's posted these piccies elsewhere

    Puzzled what would happen to these over time.

    Some of my older watches have a slight oil film inside the glass, so with a fabric dial would expect at least discolouring.

    I kept wondering about the Seagull watch I have or so I thought the Seagull name on the dial is out of line it also says 19 jewels but when I opened it up utter shock any hints and why would they do that something very wrong

    Poljot 2614, Wonder why as loads of ST5 around if the movement had needed a change.

    Watch repair shops in China can do anything to keep watches running. Most owners are not interested in originality, only in a cheap, quick solution when a watch dies. They just use what they have lying around.
    I have one seagull with a, I think, ZSH movement. I wanted to check, but Photobucket is undergoing maintenance now. TBC
