Jiusko in Shenzhen & Jiusko 153LS0107 Carrousel Tourbillon

Jiusko in Shenzhen & Jiusko 153LS0107 Carrousel Tourbillon

Postby AlbertaTime » August 25th 2015, 3:38pm

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 JiuskoUSA/Amazon) 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. :-)

Here's another of the crew at Jiusko: Hong Zheng, Moshe, me, and Joan and The Mannequins ;-) ...

It was a treat to meet Moshe, and to discuss the business and industry while visiting the show. The hospitality at the Jiusko booth was fun and very friendly. My thanks to Morgan and Joan, as well!

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 carrousel-tourbillon movement. This link goes to the ChineseWatchWiki article on Chinese Tourbillons which provides more details on types of tourbillon movements.

It's an eye-catching watch, comfortable on the wrist, and the whole feel is very solid. 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 I don't think I need to baby it. Especially for after work, social, dress or 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 much more than grateful to my friends, Moshe and Shannah. I count myself as one of the truly fortunate people on this planet.

Ditto and a pleasure to see an actual tourbillon movement as opposed to the WIT/Wing worshipers.

AT what a fabulous birthday gift. You are the man! Wearing a Dongfeng watch while composing this. A mere pittance compared to that fine tourbillon watch for sure. I am a big supporter of nos Chinese watches, but I will pay attention to some of the more modern watches thanks to your posts.

Thanks, y'all. I'm constantly astonished by the generosity and warmth I find from people I'm encountering while learning what I can of the Chinese watch/clock industry. Moshe and Shannah are genuinely nice people. I'll always be happy to see them.

And you guys...I appreciate the kind words and support

I can attest that Moshe is a straight shooter and all-around good guy. Also, his marketing of Jiusko is transparent and above board as well. To say nothing of his products being pretty fucking good.

I don't worship anybody, but for your information, Android uses Hongzhou and Seagull tourbillion movements.
Watch collecting is a disastrous trap and I'm stuck. At least I always know what time it is.
