JIUSKO 9LSB15 a the AMCHPR...

I was tossed about where to post this (Chinese? PMWF main...?) since the watch could fit either forum but,when it came down to it, I chose main based on the movement. That detail later...but first: Some initial comments and specs, then photos followed by some backstory...

JIUSKO DEEP SEA SERIES MEN'S AUTOMATIC STAINLESS STEEL DIVE WATCH 39LSB15 $325

Even considering the obvious bezel nod to Tag's Aquaracer, changed enough that it's a nod, not a mirror image, this watch looks pretty fresh to me.

Here's a link to Jiusko's present website where it's noted that Jiusko's parent company Guangzhou Yonghong Watch Technology Development Co., Ltd, is working with a Taiwanese design team. I see that as a good thing because assertive, tool-style divers with serious water resistance ratings are sadly uncommon in Chinese watches and I've always thought that Beijing, Shanghai and Sea-Gull Watch Factories all need to address this market niche more strongly if they want to challenge in North America like Seiko and Citizen or Orient. So I'm very happy seeing a Chinese company produce a competitive sport-diver design.

The bracelet is wonderful, solid links and end links, smooth on the skin, and featuring a diver's extension and foldover, locking clasp. The case is two piece (see photos), the lug section being discrete but attached by screws to the central, cylindrical movement and dial housing. The textured and multi-layered dial is crisp, playful in changing light and really easy to read. All that and sapphire crystal.

Dial: Sapphire / Display Type: Analog / Case material: Stainless Steel / Bezel function: Unidirectional / Calendar: Day / Item weight: 8.15 Ounces / Movement: Automatic / Water resistant depth: 200 Meters / Case diameter: 43 millimeters















More news, and this impressed me: I wanted to know what movement, so I emailed the North American distributor and they kindly provided me with this very transparent answer:

The movement is NH25-3(4.5), of TMI. The name is Time Module (H.K.) Ltd, which is built in 1987 and by SII Seiko Inc and S.Epson. Address is...

Here's the watch on my wrist:



Up till fairly recently, the only access I knew of to Jiusko watches was on Taobao and i've wanted one ever since I first saw one, , but Jiusko now has a North American distributor and is setting up local service as well as prepping an North American website. Right now the distributor is using Amazon.
