I like the looks of it, but frankly, the 82S-series Miyotas are a really lousy choice at that price point. Almost 700 bucks for something with that movement? Oh, fuck off. A basic SW-200, or maybe a Miyota 9015 would be a far better choice.
If I'd want to get a new watch with a somewhat basic auto inside, and with some interesting complication at the lowest possible price point, I'd take a 24h Vostok Komandirskie K-65 or 02-series over that one.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

I’m with Bloke on that - if it ain’t Swiss-sourced then the least - literally the LEAST - you should provide to the consumer should be a 9015. Otherwise, it comes across, to those that notice, as corner-cutting...

I remember Lisa of the 'Watchophilia' site, who has the largest Bulova collection in the world (1000+) buying an original A-15 on my recommendation in 2014 for $1100. She missed out on another an original US navy dive watch when it got to $5,000+ (her maximum bid was 5,000), which went on to fetch over $35,000... She never put the A-15 on her site as she went on to making her own pottery in her art studio and lost interest in watches. Never saw any of her watches for sale though.
