    Got you a pile of junk
    Its neither a chronograph as it deports to be nor a tourbillon' that it imagines to me.

    Thats the bad news - the good news is not counterfeit - so you can post it here, discuss it and even sell it

    Enjoy, it will keep fine time

    I honestly love the open heart, indeed listed as tourbillon, but I knew better of course, the pushers actuate the day, day of week(hidden bottom left), and month, all function properly so far, week and day changes are automatic, but month is not.

    I was just wondering if it was a say, homage, to another watch, I thought there was at least a resemblance to a L.U.C Perpetual T

    As far as selling it, well its prolly worthless on the used market lol, I'll wear it until it dies

    Thank you very much!

    Its not a "pile of junk", as said, it is a nice looking watch with several complications that are common in quite a few high-end watches like Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. Google for 'day date' under these names to see examples.
    As Oscar Wilde once said, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", and your watch certainly does that! :)

    Truth be told...IMHO the Chinese watches are very good values.

    I bought a few small skeleton clones that go for less than $20.00 today long ago. I wanted something small enough to be a challenge to hone my skills on but working so I didn't have to chase many problems. 2 of the 3 came out so nice it rivals many swiss on the wrist or timing machine. My wife wore hers for 2 years till we retired it for sentimental reasons. The 3rd was a parts watch from the start.

    I'm wearing a 6498 copy right now & it is my most accurate wrist watch and the latest copies have a jeweled barrel and the mainspring is upgraded to keep the amplitude at or above 300 till near the end of the wind.

    I don't think they are manually poised but most every one I've tested is very well poised and keep time well in 6 positions. Some are better than others & I've had duds or ones where the balance was too light to get the positions to agree but for the most part-they are a cheap accurate fun to wear watch.

    And if you break it no tears.

    I like that they are making fairly original styes and getting a large date , two window for that price is very good. Do the buttons set the calendar?
