Alcadus Quantra with Hangzhou micro rotor movement

Post by bbattle » March 27th 2024, 4:31pm

I sometimes wander through Kickerstart land to see what's up. I came across this watch and it looks alright but really had me intrigued enough to clutter up the forum was the fact they are using a Chinese micro rotor movement; the Hangzhou Micro-Rotor Automatic 5015A. Alberta Time calling!

I'm no movement expert but reviews seem acceptable. I don't have one, though.

    That's pretty nice. Seems really good value, too, with the boxed sapphire.
    I agree with that. The movement reviews don;t seem bad.
