$10 Watch $990 Cufflinks

Post by tiktok » August 20th 2019, 2:14am

OK, my Chinese watch is now complete, octagonal box, some shiny metal warranty card and rap dogtag, the beautiful obsidian dial which makes it hard as hell to tell the time. But fear not the full kit includes a masterful pair of horological cufflinks. Well worth the 19 month turnaround.

Is that the Maison Celadon you mentioned you had ordered at one point on the forum? I am a fan of the Imperial model which I plan on owning one day. From your post title is strikes me that the watch may be a disappointment. How is the fit and finish on it?

The Imperial is awesome, the fit and finish of this watch, the Yue Fei, is freaking awesome but the combo of shiny bezel, fumee dial and lack of AR coating make readability of this model in obsidian makes for bad legibity.
Not an issue with Imperial
