Before arriving in Shenzhen for the 26th Annual Shenzhen China Watch and Clock Fair/CWCF, I had arranged to meet Mr. Moshe Gluck, the AD for JIUSKO in the USA as we'd spoken and texted many times, but never met face-to-face. So...this photo of Moshe and me was taken at the JIUSKO booth by JIUSKO staff while we were both attending the CWCF ;-)
Full disclosure: While at the Shenzhen fair, the Glucks very generously offered me a birthday present, and it doesn't near convey my appreciation to tell you all I'm much more than grateful. As you're about to see, this was an astonishingly kind gesture on their part.
On to the gift: the JIUSKO 153LS0107 tourbillon watch...housing a Hongzhou 3335 tourbillon movement including the presentation box and certificate from the Gem Testing Center of All-China Federation of Commerce. The watch will be a cherished addition to the AMCHPR collection.
(This link goes to the ChineseWatchWiki article on Chinese Tourbillons, which provides more details on the various types of tourbillon movements.)
Here's the specs as listed on the Amazon website:
It's a very eye-catching watch, comfortable on the wrist, and the whole feel is very solid. It appears to be keeping very accurate time to my eyes, although I haven't formally timed it.
I won't be playing tennis wearing it because tourbillons are complicated movements and somewhat more prone to shock damage than standard mechanical watches but especially for after work, social, and up to more formal occasions, this will be a wonderful conversation-starter for watch lovers and just a very cool complication to own.
As I noted, earlier, I'm extremely grateful to my friends, Moshe and Shannah at JIUSKO. I continue to count myself as one of the truly most fortunate people on this planet.
The JIUSKO 153LS0107 is an eye-pleasing, well-built, more affordable way to more enjoy this very entertaining high-end complication.
