Everything about the watch relates to Chinese history, particularly relating to the great warrior Yue FEI, but as one who has to create backstories to my own work, usually after the full act of creation, I'll skip the folklore.
The case is milled out of a monobloc in the shape of an octagon, calling Mr Genta on aisle 4, the crown is an octagon and it comes in a unique octagonal leather box. The dial has a gray fumé finish that is quite unique, the hands are blued with some white lume in the middle but the lume sucks, also there is no AR coating which is a drag until you get used to the hands. The engine is a modified BWAF B15 that winds like much higher priced butter.
Other notable features are the nice mix of brushed and polished edges, not quite Zaratsu quality but good. The buckle is really solid brushed steel as well.
VERDICT: If you can get beyond the identity crisis of this watch it has a lot to offer including 5 year warranty. Sits very comfortably and has the feel of a very real live watch, not microbrand fluff.
