BTW, SO is selling this on Amazon, too, and the hype of the product page comes right out an states it's packing the Claros. Stuhrling Prestige, Daddy! Looks like a parts bin special from stem to stern.
Congrats to Larry Magen and Stuhrling Original; as Howard Cosell once told Oscar Madison: "You don't care how low you stoop."
Interestingly, I googled "swiss claro 888 automatic movement" and it took me to the Claro website, viz: http://www.clarowatch.com/movements.html
Some years ago, when the C-C-Claro movements were something of a thing, I checked out their website. Back then, about ten (!) years ago, the site seemed dead; none of the links worked, and it seemed frozen in time, like those Pompeiians who got fucked over by Mt. Vesuvius. Now, however, some of the links seem to work, and you can go here:https://www.boutiquevonburg.com/watches/gender/men/
Which shows a bunch of shit with the Claro label, along with--wait for it--shit from AVI-8, one of the Urine bullshit brands, along with Ferragamo, yet another of Urine's bullshit brands, this one repped by the Mephistophelean Stephen Jay, who is the Gevril rep, as well as being one of the greasiest motherfuckers from the Florida Wartche Triangle.
But, there's more! Wait around for a couple of minutes, for more choices to load, and what the fuck do we find? Sturhling Original! Allow more to load, like Jomashop only with more grease, and what do we find? Versace! Named after the fruit who got whacked by serial murderer Andrew Cunanan, and repped by--who else? the Mephistophelean Stephen Jay, on Urine live.
