Here's another 11.11 find (thanks to rlachcik on MoT forums for pointing this out) - £82.73 on 11.11 "Add to cart now, shop during sale".
3325938.jpgIn White, Gold or Rose Gold variants. 20mm lug width.

The diamond doesn't float my boat, but the specs for this price can't be beat.

I'm more excited about this watch - which I've just read about and is in no way a bargain - but I don't think Timex UK sell it (?) 38922201-PPrVR.jpg
There's a rather similar Nakzen (with diamond accents) that has a Miyota 9015, though I wasn't that impressed with their Quartz "Pagoda" model (as it was christened by WUS members). It's cheaper at £75.38 on 11.11, though I think the Cadisen looks better.
38922238-RBuQu.jpgGotta love this Chinglish illustration 38922238-BoyXO.jpgAlso reviewed by Jody. At 6:26 he compares the Nakzen to the Cadisen C8097

Briefly mentioned on Watchuseek, but with good close-up pictures.

I can see that, you do the homework about fare east watches. I am searching for the automatic movement with chronograph and dates. Any good models and brand suggestions?

It's weird, in that "Just one more watch" youtube clip, the steel case/white dial/blue second hand Cadisen looks so much better than on any of the promotional shots on Aliexpress. Tempted!

Automatic Chronographs cost a small fortune!
Not sure why this is so cold, a nice dress watch with a reputable high beat Automatic movement and domed Sapphire crystal? Buyer beware on warranty issues, but it's a lot of watch for the money.

I think most people don't want to spend more than £40-50 on a "Chinese watch" which is fair enough, as that's about my limit The 9015 movements have great accuracy for the price.

I suppose it's a subject for another thread and mentioned already, but I wish Chinese manufacturers wouldn't try to ape English brands, eg, Cadisen = Citizen, or worse, the really poor names that don't scan well in English, eg, De Feels (!), Deerfun, Handlove, Wancher etc. Why not be Chinese and proud? Guanqin is a more China-sounding brand and many of their watches have a good reputation.

Watch experts might scream out in horror, but the steel version of the Cadizen reminds me a bit of the white-dial Tissot Visodate - which is a good thing...

Citizen is not english. Lol!

Fair enough, I should clarify and say brands well-known to English speakers - which is what I meant. Should really proof read before I post (lots of distractions today). Is that better?

It’s the Supreme logo that’s sending the price sky hi
Re Timex, I got an email about this Peanuts Automatic yesterday. I prefer the Marlin Snoopy but this is still a silly price for what it is.38925261-1e5a6.jpgBrowsing around their website, I do like the (Womens') Celestial watches, though they're a bit pricey for the Automatics. There's a Quartz range as well.

Also got the email. Looks nice but miyota 8205 I think! Price is high for what it is but it should hold its value.

Look at the Sea Gull 1963 .. Ali Expess
I thought about buying the Seagull 1963 but there were bad reports about Merkur Store who recently had them for a good price. There is a legitimate seller who is a member of Watchuseek but understandably I wouldn't want to go that route either.

This thread may enlighten a bit and this but it's all too murky for me to spend £250+ on a dud.

From what I remember, this watch isn't an Automatic - it's hand-wind. It is a beautiful watch, though.

Rather helpfully, Jody from One More Watch has uploaded an 11.11 sale picks video, so may be worth a look

Highlights (changed from his affiliates, so I don't get spanked)

Corgeut 'Speedmaster' (Quartz, tho! Turns out it's Mecaquartz, thanks to the reviews - thanks also to Blurigard's post) £44.91 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
38948787-CRaTc.jpg(Not recommended by Jody, saw this myself) Think this variant is a bit nicer, actually - £43.84 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
38948787-a4ckb.jpgAnd this Blue one, different seller, not the one recommended by Jody (Flame Watch Store) £43.91 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
38948787-jvKlN.jpgSeagull 1963 Acrylic Crystal (Hand-wind) £135.89 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
Seller page
aliexpress.com/sto…MDu38948787-SmnDd.jpg(Looked this up myself) There's also a Sapphire Glass variant for £135.89 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
Thinking about it.....it's a bit weird both the Acrylic and Sapphire versions are the same price - what's going on there There are differences in the Chrono dial hands on the Sapphire version image, below - they don't match - which I've seen a Watchuseeker complain about recently)
38948787-2u3uO.jpgLoreo 'Submariner' (various - leather, nylon, stainless steel strap) £42.77-£50.91 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…94138948787-AsYVo.jpgSan Martin MM300 - NH35 (various, see illustration below) - £231.66-£236.81 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
More San Martins, here38948787-2mdbS.jpg38948787-RmJFa.jpgFull metal Skmei (Casio clone? Their AE-1200 clones are pretty well-regarded, though the real thing can be bought for not much more if you're careful) - £10.45 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
38948787-vqX3v.jpgQuite a few more Cadisens, here

Pagani MechaQ Chrono - Seiko Mecaquartz VK67 (leather or steel bracelet) - £28.16-£31.36 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml
38948787-QY8dp.jpgAccording to pgcity on MoT Forums, those listed above, recommended by Jody*, are the "official stores" (I'm never quite sure with Aliexpress, so can't vouch for this - and may be found cheaper).

The Seagull 1963 isn't the "official" one from the Seagull factory (edit: see here) - but that watch needs a bit of research before purchasing with confidence.

Pagani Design had a bit of a rough time with QC feedback recently (the one I remember was timekeeping issues with the Cocktail Time clone - WUS members were removing the plastic spacer under the caseback to get it to run more accurately!), so they may need a bit of reading around first, too.

*Edit: Jody himself says he's bought happily from the sellers he links to, so this is why he's chosen those.

Dont forget customs duty. Had 2 packages from china stoped and opened recently.
dont forget warranty. any issues - good luck. you might get your money back but its a hassle
(Can you tell I'm reading the MoT thread) - pgcity elaborates and says this is the "official Seagull store on Aliexpress" and this is the 2018 Seagull 1963 re-edition (5500 units), with numbered solid caseback (also Acrylic) - £266.35 - 11.11 price aliexpress.com/ite…tml

He/she discusses retailmenot 9% cashback (maximum $50) but you need a US phone number to redeem it.38948875-u45z7.jpg(On a slight tangent, the picture above reminds me of Marc from Long Island Watch who had customers complaining of bent hands - about another domed crystal watch)!!38948875-2H2Db.jpgEdit: There's an in-depth article about Seagull 1963 watches, sellers, variants, here
