Not bad. A classy dress look with the open heart view. I think I have seen a few similar to that when looking at all the Chinese watches recently.

IMHO, definitely Chinese, but I'd be the last guy to disparage that in any way! ...

I do like the looks of this model but I'll be honest, I wouldn't buy anything from AK. Just mu opinion. I don't buy too many watches in a year so when I do, I want something better than what they have to offer. JMHO and nothing else.

I started a "side" collection recently, focusing on "different" and unique complications which includes a lot of retrogrades. I picked this one up for that collection. Works fine and is very accurate -4 over 36 hrs. It seems the Chinese are doing all sorts of complications these days.
