Inside the case is an ETA G10.211, which is a workhorse Swiss chronograph quartz movement. There seems to be a lot of debate over at the watch forums about whether this movement is high quality, but the facts are that it’s very accurate, it’s cheap and it’s non-serviceable due to all of the plastic parts used and the special machinery needed to assemble the pieces. While the movement probably costs about $40-50,

The G10 movts are garbage, IMO. One of our guys worked at Swatch, and they just throw them in the trash and put in a new movt. This is not only because the movt is sealed, but also because, as with most quartzes, it is cheaper to replace it than to spend time diagnosing and fixing it. The reason I mention this, is because when mine fails completely, I will NOT be replacing it with another G10 series movt, I will go with something else, although not sure what, exactly. Maybe just a better ETA quartz movt. Anyway, your movt is sealed and can't be repaired, is the short version.

Movement is ETA G10.211. It is a "entry" swiss quartz movement, but it is used by other "luxury" swiss brands.
Standard stainless steel case with a screw down crown. And yet it only has 100m rating so... :facepalm:
Mineral Crystal is less desirable than sapphire crystal. It is more prone to scratches and impossible to clean up.
If you look at the sample pictures, you will see the letters on the faces are not clear, probably indicating the total quality of the watch.

To sum up, you are paying around $200 CAD before shipping and duty for a watch with no known heritage(hence no reselling value) and questionable qualities.

Its usually a good sign to stay awau when you search "watchuseek" for the brand and don't get a single hit.
