I'd hate to know, and I'd really hate to see the actual.

The quality may not be as bad as you think.
It does have a citizen movement, so at least it will be able to tell the time.
Going to go the the jewelers and find a nice band & post a real pic.
That way when someone asks me, what time is it...??
I can now reply....Buick Time..

Quality not as bad as I think? Huh? Hong Kong. Quality does not come from Hong Kong. And what is with faceplate? It looks like they superimposed(Photoshopped) a different faceplate onto some cheapo watch.

Even the jeweler got a good chuckle when he saw it...LOL..
He removed the back and said it would have been better if it was a Citizen movement.
It is a Seiko movement, these guys don't know one from the other.
It works for an el-cheapo & that'* about it.

Maybe you should consider a Apple watch clone coming out of China for under $50?

LMAO, that is funny.

I've always been intrigued with cheap knock off things. Its like, how far will a company go to copy something before they are sued.
