    Which brand is this? Looks very nice, a possible candidate for as a poor man´s Tourbillon. [​IMG]
    what is this?
    Yeah well.... It's not really anything. It's a tourbillon allright. But not any brand. It's an OEM product bought directly from the factory. That's why there are are no markings anywhere. It's an inhouse chinese movement though. But it would diffidently qualify as a poor mans tourbillon [​IMG] You can see the movement here:

    I'm a total watch neewbie, and would love a vintage gold watch to join with a brown leather strap. Have very little money to spend - like $200 - is it even worth looking at ebay, etc, or will anything I find be useless?

    This doesn't cover even the cost of the raw metal.

    You can probably pick up a plated watch for that -but you'll probably put 2-300 into shortly.
