That movement is worth about 15 bucks and is built with free dirt and fingerprints in it and not enough oil to keep it going. I oiled the one i had to keep it going.

sorry but this is the world we live in. we can only adapt to the situation we find ourselves in. Police are only reactionary and being proactive gets them in trouble. If your rich don't flaunt it or risk theft. Such is life.

Time ? ya that's about it... Custom brand helps

They all look a little big on you. Watches that are too big get uncomfortable fast. Gat a cheapie in that size to see if you can stand wearing it before those expensive ones. Big watches make the arm look small and you do not want that.

Waving a $15,000.00 watch around is asking for a criminal response. Criminals are everywhere in every city so driving luxury or wearing it will interest them greatly. I know smart very wealthy men who drive common cars and do not show any bling to anyone but their inner circles who have never been even insulted. Personal safety is acting responsibly in public by not flexing your loot so you can keep it.

As long as it has Japanese guts you can be happy with it. Native Chinese movements are not worth owning.
