Functions:Automatic, Heartbeat Skeleton, Sub Second Hand
Is this one of those deals you have to stare at for a while to see the hidden image? They also seem to go out of their way not to specify a movement. Likely the 8215 - just say so, goddammit.

Going by the pics, if they are the correct model, looks like a pretty nice watch for under 5 bills.

OK, sumbody humor me........ what the hell is a "Heartbeat Skeleton" ??
I think the "heartbeat skeleton" part is just (wrongly) cut/pasted from a different watch description. This Bulova has a heartbeat skeleton:

I hate heartbeat holes cut into dials but thats just me. Anyways, Bulova has been dead to me since Citizen bought them out. JMHO.

The stutterer - while Miyota indirect drive seconds hands can have this issue, IIRC from what I've read, it's most prevalent in this one.
