Ha... 🤣 I'm in too... Been wanting to poke at one of these PT5000 movements for a goof. I went with the green. Let me guess, you went with the blue... Again...lol !🤣 This is so not like me. But if it runs at 28.8, I gotta check it out.

The most accurate and stable movement in my collection is a PT5000. It's a peach !

Unfortunately it doesn't presently fit into my collection at the moment, but what a great bargain. Cronos make fantastic watches, and with that movement it has to be worth three times that. ENJOY, and let us know what you think when it arrives

Yeah, holy cowza, almost looks computer generated it's so perfect
sir. 😮😵..Can't believe all of the versions, along with bells, and
whistles as well ! And you even have the choice of the SW200?!! 😲
This one gives you the best of both worlds, or all worlds I guess.
Love that True, thanks a ton for the report !!!

I hope the OP feels guilty. After seeing this watch, I just sold one of my own to buy it. That deal is so good I couldn't help myself. Chronos make excellent watches, and the spec for the money is just crazy. The PT5000 movement on it's own is worth that much :)

Supposedly the PT5000 is Chronometer grade according to the German Wempe Glashutte Laboratory,

It's a Chinese clone of the ETA2824. Nothing wrong with that, as there are several already, and it's a brilliant movement. Yes, they are all regulated before they leave the factory, unlike the basic ETA and Sellita equivalents. The one I have in my Geckota G-02 runs like a quartz. On my timegrapher it produces an almost straight line. Like I said, the asking price for this watch is crazy, don't miss out, I haven't !!

I only placed one order through them (but it was for five watches as four were gifts). I went through AliExpress. Once the watches shipped, I received them in five days. It took a few days to get the watches ready because I was doing both a custom logo on the dial and engraved case back for all five watches. A bonus was that Maxi only charged me the cost of doing the custom work for one watch, so that saved me $280.

Thanks fellas,
I went the Ali-baba route not knowing any better. As of last night, they said it wouldn't even ship for 5 more days. But, I know they always pad their shipping time. No worries.:)

I went with the green also, I have too many blue watches!

Is this watch closer to a Turtle or a Willard ?😀
The crown guard looks different, the top of the crown is screwed in flush with the case, not like current day turtles!
