I really wanted the B18 movement and found this Beijing ZhuFeng for sale, used with no box. I hesitated, but saw the same watch new for sale for $745.00 and decided the box wasn’t worth the used to new price difference of over $500.00.
I got lucky and got this for a great price.
It reminds me of the Mido all dial, which I was able to remove from my list when I got and saw this. Here is the bracelet, a butterfly clasp, and it melts onto my wrist. It is so comfortable and is very well made. Side profile with a signed crown. The curve fits my wrist perfectly. The B18 movement, it is beautiful. This set up is so nice, plus the finishing is tops. I’m not seeing anything wrong with the build of this watch, I see quality. I was hugely surprised when I got it in my hands. Of course I messaged Ron to show him and I told him “I get it now”.
You guys know how much I love my hked, I have no intentions of ever parting with the 63 by him because I love that watch, but the quality of this watch is unbelievable and more above the hked.
I will never stall on a Beijing watch again, I am a fan now. This is going in my higher end watch box, along side my Oris, Rado, Eterna Zodiac Calame, Kurono etc…. This watch was a very pleasant surprise in quality.
