Ochstin 6050G, a sub $20 watch with a working chronograph

Hello fellows,
It’s my first review for BLF so be kind Smile

The watch was purchased from AliExpress for $16.99, so as you can imagine my expectations were low.
After receiving the watch and having used it for some time, it turns out that the watch is superb considering
its aggressive pricing…!

Case
The diameter of the case is 41mm, while its thickness is 10mm.
In my opinion, the dimensions are excellent for most people’s wrists. The watch sits very comfortably
on the wrist and should be a great daily beater.
Material-wise, the case is made out of stainless steel and has a glossy black coating.



Dial
The watch’s dial is probably the number one reason why I bought the watch.
The black and white contrast enhanced by the red details make it look very appealing.
As with the most chronograph watches, there is an 24-hour, a minute and a second dial.
I found myself to really like the placing of the date display.
Lastly, it is worth noting that all the big white elements of the dial are fluorescent.


Strap
The watch arrived with a black leather strap.
Overall, the quality of the strap seems good and the stitching seems strong and well made.
Its 20mm width feels great on the wrist. I believe that I will be replacing the strap with a nato one, just because I feel that it will match the character of the watch better.


Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of the watch.

Is it me or are the little dials on the same position every pic?
Do they work?
How accurate is it?
What happens if you decide to go swimming with it?

Nice review, looking forward to see more! Thumbs Up

Thanks for your kind words.

The left mini dial shows the minutes (when you enable the chronograph), the center represents seconds (again, when in chronograph mode), while the right one shows 24h format.
While I was taking the pictures I didn’t bother starting the chronograph and that’s why they haven’t moved.

Of course in real life every mini dial moves normally Smile

Time for a little update Smile
I just received a 20mm Nato strap that I had ordered for the watch. I decided to go with a military theme so I got a a dark green colored one.
Here are some photos of the strap:
