I did a thing!

Okay so I’m new to collecting and I think I have spent a lot of money on AliExpress  £200 (considering my income).

I think they will not arrive till January, anyway anyone had positive products or have I been dumb

·

You haven't been dumb at all. That is a great way to start. I don't have any Berny's, but I know someone who does, and he loves it! Here's the thing about watches. If you like it, that's all that matters. 

·

Delivery to UK? I think you'll get it before January but before Christmas is a a bit of a gamble.

Also, not dumb at all.

Those are both nice looking watches, especially the Flieger-style dial. I have heard good things about Berny. It seems to be one of the new YouTube finds on AliExpress. A number of YouTubers are reviewing and recommending Berny for budget collectors. I have been considering getting one myself.

·

Looks like two really nice watches - I think of the two, the white dial is my favorite. Looks really nice on the black leather band with the contrast stitching... and if the band ends up being crap, it'll be very easy to find a strap that works with it. Plus it has the superior date window location 😂

@Velomax reviewed one here. He said that it was much better than any old Christopher Ward.

The white face is the cheaper of the two also, and will be the first light face watch I own

That’s cool, I may do a review, watchcrunch asked me to do one, but I think they ask all meme bees to do it, watch this space I guess

Ali can be hit or miss.  But when they hit, they hit hard.  I have three Ali watches.  I am very happy with two of them:  

Last year's Hanukkah gift to myself was this Cronos homage to the IWC Le Petit Prince Mark XVIII:

For this year, it was the Phylida homage to the Omega Speedmaster Professional:

The third one, the Tandorio Field is just meh:  

Image

I only paid $85 for it so it's fine for what it is and I wasn't devastated, but I don't love it like the other two.  The finishing is merely passable (see the inside portion of where the lugs meet the case), but for under $100, I can't complain too much.  The movement (PT5000 - same as the Cronos) also loses more time than I'd like.  I may take a crack at attempting to regulate it someday.

They are some cracking watches, it truly is comforting that others had had good and not so good experiences from AliExpress, it dose show That it’s a minefield but that you can also get decent quality for a low price.

the two I bought one comes with a Seagull Automatic movement, st1612. the other a Seiko NH36 auto movement

Its an 85$ watch. 
The numbers, the arrows, the distance...

Everything is off... a bit.
But i reckon its not too bad for the price.
I like the overall field look
And the metal bracelet is a plus

Its an 85$ watch and a good one i think
(from what ive seen)
