Random ad popping up on eBay lead me to this (I hope the active auction link is not a no-no as there are multiples and it is BIN):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Wrist-Leather-Automatic-Mechanical-Mens-Watch-Gift-/140565174480?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D5258740066692167738


It's a bit busy and not my usual cup of tea but for the price I am just fascinated as to what the quality could be. One assumes it must be a Chinese movement but I didn't think there were any cheap enough to allow production of mechanical chronograph at this price. The registers appear to be day of the week at 9:00 and day of the month at 3:00 but the 6:00 register is 24 hr. A bit useless as a chronograph, 30min would have been more logical (eg:6139). Of course I am assuming that the sweep is a proper 60 second chrono and is tied to the 24hr register.

Thoughts?
