Jiusko 60LSB01 arrives at the AMCHPR

Postby AlbertaTime » September 27th 2015, 2:16pm

This is Jiusko #4 for me, joining the 70LSB0202 auto diver, the 39LSB15 auto diver and the 153LS0107 tourbillon in the AMCHPR stable, and this is my first Jiusko quartz and my first Jiusko chrono. As Conjurer notes, the chrono movement is a Seiko Epson/TMI YM92 (edited/correction).

I was looking for a daily wear chrono and this one had interested me from when I first noticed the brand. This deal from Moshe was too good to pass up, and my luck with past watches from Jiusko has always been good. The watch is lighter than the autos, and very comfortable on the wrist. The silicon band is comfortable as well, not as thick as the strap on the 70LSB0202 diver, and instead of a regular buckle system, the watch has a deployant so the strap is made for "cutting to size." Larger wristed folks will likely need another band but the band was too large for me and needed cutting. Seeing as the movement is a Seiko Epson/TMI YM92 (edited/correction) and quartz, I don't expect anything but great accuracy.

Here's some specs:
Clasp deployant-clasp-with-push-button
Case material Stainless steel
Case diameter 43 millimeters
Case Thickness 15 millimeters
Band Material Silicone
Band width 20 millimeters
Crystal Sapphire Crystal
Movement Quartz
WR 330 Feet

Photos (still moving in to the new home, so fairly quick and dirty phone shots):

And, the obligatory wrist shots ;-)

As always, thanks to Moshe for making this deal available, and thanks also to Conjurer for the heads up at WatchLords! (Note: the red second hand does line up nicely, but it looks more off due to photo angles.

The photos on Amazon don't do these justice. Yours bring out the intricacies of the dial though.

My only gripe has been inclusion of "Sapphire" on the dial. Not necessary anymore than slapping "Quartz" on a dial.

Thanks for the kind words. I agree that the website renders don't show some of the very nice detailing on these. And agreed about "sapphire," too -- but I was really happy there's no mention of "quartz" 8-)

How about slapping "automatic" on the dial?

Nice choice. Jiusko has a nice variety of watches.
The stock photo's are pretty bad, Moshe might have better sales if he were to take his own photo's.

Thanks! The Amazon photos are consistent with Amazon's overall "style", but I agree that the Amazon photos look too sterile and don't show the watches as nicely as they could.

Thanks! Jiusko is a good brand that with only a bit of sharpening could be a very good brand. As Conjurer's and Eddie's review - and my own -- have noted, there are still a few weak areas, but they're doing more right for the western market than most Chinese brands, that's for sure. And I'm happy with all mine.

Well, this deal that Moshe has right now is generous, very good value for the dollar.

Another great find from this sleeper brand - very cool! I do like a speicific-to-the-owner-sized silicon band mated to a deployment clasp, too, particularly on a chronograph, as I t exudes motorsport...

But, yeah... "sapphire"...

"So, based on the badge on the trunk, it looks like this car 'features' ABS brakes? Don't all cars come with ABS brakes now...?"

Still, baby steps! And their execution appears to be quit well-done, & I would assume well-priced, plus I'm sure they will continue to refine their dial nomenclature as they evolve.

Enjoy! Remember though, it is important to STOP the chrono to measure the elapse time. My unconventional manner of measuring how long it takes me to remember to stop the chronograph several hours beyond the incremental task of say boiling an egg... "It took precisely 3 hours, 22 minutes, & 37 seconds to remember I started to time eggs this morning!"

You can't slap "Automatic" on the dial of a quartz. That's just silly. They should print "Solar" on the dial.
