Aliexpress shipping is nerve wracking.

Before I swore off watches for a year I bought a "Moranbong" or to be more precise a Chinese knockoff of a Moranbong. These sell in the Tourist Shops in NK to people who get to "visit". I've been watching it crawl all month. Ebay is sure easier on the nerves. It looks like this but mine will be blue.

I have bought something like 20 watches from AliExpress over the last 18 months or so. Not one of the has taken longer than 2 weeks to arrive in the Netherlands, and that includes my latest purchase that spent a few days in customs jail! Is yours actually coming from NK perhaps?

Nope its coming from China, been watching the tracking the whole time its almost here, but I'm worried the ad is gone. So help me of its one of the ones with Pyongyang spelled wrong I'm going to be not happy.

Nah, I think it's the Chinese new year, and the associated backlog. I had a movement coming, that despite being a movement didn't seem to move at all. 馃榿

Hope it makes it safe.
