    Pleased with my entry as Newmark was a local company where I live. This watch cost me £16.95 including postage from ebay.

    When it arrived it came on a broken strap that went in the bin (had to cut it off as the lugs are fixed).
    The hour hand was mis-aligned but it was working although it was losing time (10 minutes in 12 hours).

    I opened it up and reset the hands (not perfect but close enough) and played with the regulation a little. Time will tell!

    As you can see from the photo's the movement comes out complete with stem and the case is cheap and lightweight.

    Case size is 33mm with 17mm lugs. I put a one piece strap on it which came with it's stablemate.

    Here we are once again with this great competition thanks to ISMY , itís very much appreciated.

    So my entry is this great condition Baoxuan watch made in china .Measuring just the right size for me (lately) 37 mm (Inc crown) and 44 mm lug to lug and 18 mm band. I have been very lucky this time as it came in a little wooden box and looks to be in nearly new condition and with a light polish and a Darlena strap was ready to go.
    The beating heart of this 17 jewel beauty is a SN2 movement from the southern Chinese city of Jieyang and apparently a low cost but reliable and accurate thing with about 50 hrs of go in it. There is a link to a tear down by Watch Guy which as usual is fantastic (you can see it here: https://watchguy.co.uk/teardown-serv...watch-factory/

    So far it has been quite accurate only gaining about 1 minute a day (which is just great for me)

    I really like it especially the red jewel on the second hand and it would have been something i would have bought anyway, and for £16.09 all in and a spare strap i had i think itís a bargain.

    The brutalist aesthetics caught my eye, but mostly I liked the symbolism - a battered and faded survivor of a more optimistic age, before nationalism became the order of the day. The wear pattern shows that someone wore this as a regular watch. Maybe it was their only watch. Who can that have been, and living what kind of life? It didnít seem right to smarten it up, so itís as it was when it slipped out of the Jiffy bag.

    It has a Slava SU 2356 movement (quartz), and it works - accurately.

    Purchased from a seller in Minsk, where it was originally made, for £20.11 (incl. postage).

    Iíve posted a receipt elsewhere but canít find it right now.

    I fully expect to be first round cannon fodder, but enjoyed the hunt - and even the watch.
