Forsining Skeleton 24-hour Automatic

I received this lovely engraved and gilded skeleton automatic about a week ago. Since then, I have worn it regularly for a proper review.

A few mornings ago, I awoke with an epiphany to purchase the most ornate automatic I could find at the lowest price. This Forsining Brand fit the bill perfectly.

Image

I purchased the watch for $47.17 from Amazon. When I received it and handled it for the first time, I was surprised by its hefty and quality feel, as well as its intricate and detailed design. I wound it and set the time right away and noted how smoothly the crown operates and how responsive the movement is. In addition to the refined engraving, the 24 hour moon phase complication adds a rich, beautiful touch.

The watch is accommodating at 43mm diameter and just over 50mm lug to lug. It feels solid and robust as well at 131 grams (three links removed).

I have monitored the movement‘s accuracy, and over the last six days it has operated between +8 and +3 seconds. 

When I first received this Forsining, I wondered if I could pull off its ornate design. After wearing it for a week (and receiving over half-a-dozen very enthusiastic compliments from total strangers), it looks great and makes me feel great, and has proven itself a stable performer. For an automatic that only set me back $47.17…that is a lot to write home about!

A fully functional bezel that has no purpose is a Dada approach to watch design.

I want one of these just because of the ornateness. I once saw an artisan carve some embossing into a bracelet/case and it is awesomely unique

Sweet! After you get yours and wear it a while, will you do a review too? I hope you have as good an experience with yours as I have at this point with mine.

Touche’. However…albeit dada irrationality…it is a fun way to fidget in style.

I got it last November I wear it a bit and fell down a few times and still going. I rolled the dice on this one since its a Chinese watch.

Love the craftsman art work. I will wear it if I get invited to a French party.

Check out Bill Oyster his engraving is next level. He has actual US presidents for clients.

Just to say that on AliExpress that watch sets you back $30, but you have to wait a couple of weeks till it arrives.

I bought one Forsining from Ali, for approximately $30, and that turned out better than expected (I did leave a review here). It seems, Forsining makes generally rather weird but decent watches.
