Don't worry about all this.
The worry is, it will last you a month at best. Price says it all here.
An automatic movement for £13.20 ???

It looks similar to the Orient, Invicta and Seiko homage models.


No screw down crown, so you wouldn't want to to wear it in the rain or even in a steamy bathroom.

Just seen this. Award goes to the most ambiguous answer from cust service ever!:
  • Q is that possible to swim and shower with this watch

    A Hello jean,
    It is Life water resistance.
    It is not ok to swim and shower with this watch.

Can/could never understand any advantages to a mechanical watch, unless you've got nothing better to do than visit a jeweller regularly
It has got to be worth a punt at £13.20
Why even debate the pros and cons??
Check youtube...some reasonable reviews for what it is.
Ordered a green one!!
Thanks OP!!

I have no idea what people expect for £13.20....
If you can save just a little bit more the Rolex Submariner looks the same !!!!
Have got one of these. Paid a bit less about £12. It’s a great looking watch for the price. Mine was not great at self winding and I found I needed to wind it every day. Kept reasonable time. I wear it every so often as I have a number of cheapo watches to choose from.

And that's the problem for me. I don't mind paying £14 for a cheap good value watch but I don't understand why anyone would buy and wear what is obviously a cheap imitation of an expensive product.
Ordered the golden one, hope I don’t get mugged by twits on mopeds

May I suggest because they like the Rolex but cant afford one?
Wonder how easy it is to adjust the mechanism, i could never get my old Seiko right..

Please elaborate. I have two Swiss mechanical watches. One is my daily "beater", I wear it in the gym, when I go swimming, at work etc. The other is generally reserved for dressier occasions or when I fancy a change to my daily wear. Both owned for years, keeping good time, and have never been to a jewellers.

The irony of your post is that had I bought two Quartz watches, both would have likely needed battery replacements by now. Something which I'd need to go to a Jewellers or similar to have done. I quite like the way that Mechanical watches don't "tick". It looks nice. The fact I never need to replace batteries is a bonus.

I don't wear a digital watch because I'm not 12 and I can tell the time. I don't have any interest in Smart watches.

If you really want me to elaborate.
I'm over twelve.
The situation to me is rather akin to that of Vinyl records which have had a fairly recent revival. What relief it was for me when cds came! Although I sometime bought Japanese pressings and had one of the best cartridges and pickup arms and turntables at the time (in particular for wear) I could still hear that inner grove distortion and inevitably the records still deteriorated over time. And keeping them clean was another problem.
So I was equally pleased when finally quartz crystal controlled watches were introduced. I had never had a Rolex, but all the cheapish watches I had either stopped working or required regular trips to the jewellers. They always required adjustment, the time was usually not nearly exact enough anyway. I was even more pleased when the first radio controlled clocks them watches were introduced. Solar power means that they 'never' need batteries,
Smart watches are not interesting to me as they don't yet have a long enough battery life and the displays aren't bright enough.
Of course, digital watches can look just like anything and can include an amazing array of extra features

Bought one of these, nice looking watch but be aware the power reserve won't even keep it going through the night !

The argument with vinyl is that the sound is richer than CD, isn't it? I don't know, I just read that quite a bit over the years. It's also far, far nicer to open a vinyl gatefold album and see the huge artwork that some of the classics have in comparison to the tiny insert you get in a CD. That's my opinion though.

Quartz is far more accurate than any mechanical movement, yes. But you've missed the point here really, I think. For an auto enthusiast, it's about the craftsmanship that goes into making one, the feel of the movement when you move your hand/wrist and that, if looked after properly, a good automatic movement should last a virtual lifetime. They don't really need much in the way of attention from any experts at all. Quartz, on the other hand.

You are actually incorrect about the solar watches. They do have a battery, which is charged by the solar mechanism, and they do fail after a number of years. The last one I had was a Citizen and after 12yrs it failed. Citizen told me they couldn't get it working again due to the age of the watch. I'd be reluctant to buy another solar after paying £300 for that one and expecting it to last a lot longer!

Don't knock automatic watches just because you've never owned a Rolex - that's how I read your post anyway. There's a world of difference between the cheap and luxury brands, for very good reasons. The same as you wouldn't compare the likes of a Ford Ka and an Aston Martin. Apples, oranges. Yes, both are just cars and both will get you from A to B. But...

Perlative ceronometer (as opposed to superlative chronometer).... Does that actually mean anything? Don't mind a submariner homage but not keen on one with gibberish written on the dial!
The spelling error on the face is enough to put me off.

If you hand wind it before you go to bed it's fine. A bit tedious but does the job. My Tevise keeps good time but the bezel action and alignment is shocking

I didn't even know that was possible, will give it a try

It's possible just make sure you don't overwind it or you're goosed!

Tried it last night and what do you know, still working this morning. Only gave it about 5 spins but did the trick.
I nearly bought another one but the price has jumped up to an outragous nearly £15 !!!
I got one weeks ago, looks great but only lasts a few hours and stops. I could have a dodgy one like. looks fab though
