    Another Beijing to Sweden

    Got a notification I had a package to pick up. So jumped in the car to the post office (or gas station handling the post).

    Different type of box then my other Beijings


    And it's a pilot. Honestly don't know the name of this watch. B078201445S is the number. Someone on wus (I think insanemainframe) nicknamed it the Beijing ranger, but it's more a pilot.


    It's quite obvious where they found the inspiration for this. It's a mix between the IWC mark xvii and the mark xvii petit Prince. But in my opinion combining the best of both watches and putting it in a smaller package. This is 39mm instead of iwcs 41mm


    It's taken the numerals from the petit Prince, the red accents from the mark xvii and added a red second hand.



    The strap is OK (will change it anyway) with a nice signed buckle


    And a wrist shot


    Will add some more impression later on.

    Very nice mate

    Nice box too. Wonder whether they've started to mark the buckle on the outer not inner. Always seemed a bit odd.

    How's the lume btw

    Cool mate.
    Wasn't sure if the numbers would be too.
    Similar to ZunDa and last all night perhaps

    Thanks guys. Will write something up after I've had it for a while.

    Would love to see some more sporty models from Beijing. And from seagull and Shanghai...
