For the price and from what I have read on the forum posted by those who own them, not a bad deal for an affordable watch. Like a couple of them in bronze.

Yeah, I was looking at a Flieger-style and the only description for the movement was "automatic." Honestly, that's it.

Sure.

Depending on availability, they use NH35/PT5000/SW200 in their Flieger-style watches. Have one inbound from the 11/11 AliExpress sale. Bronze model at 39mm. Sweet size and I have no doubt it will be well made.

Have found that most Chinese sellers/watch companies are more than willing to try to answer questions when asked. Seems that the language barrier sometimes interferes with the way they list watches.

I like that San Martin manufactures their own design and not simply marketing homages of regular watches,
like this fresh idea of theirs :Beerbang:
I've zeen nith design before.

Have owned a couple of San Martins and a Heimdallr. The Heimdallr is better in all ways.

They are not all made in the same factory. Proxima watch factory isn’t producing yet as is in Hubei, if I recall correctly.

I read somewhere that shipping is a disaster if you buy direct from them due to the coronavirus.
I deal with several Chinese factories and they're all still closed. Other than the virus we can't get shit out of China right now.

So, for those who have purchased some of these, what are your impressions of the brand?
I like the two bronze fliegers I have; one is an automatic, the other a manual wind. They look good and the leather straps are very nice for the price. Paid less than $200 for each of them.

And the Lume is lovely.

The bronze has turned a pretty uniform brown now. I'm not going to polish them up; just leave them as they are.
