Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure what you are asking. If you are asking whether or not that is a real bernoulli or whatever it's called, the answer is yes. If you are asking whether or not it is a legit BRAND, the answer is kind of no. The MSRP of 2495 is patently ridiculous. They are Always At Market products, and are the same as Rousseau, Picard @ Cie, SUG, Louis Bolle, Balmer, Deporte, etc. Chinese made. Some with Japanese Movements, some with Chinese movements. If you got it for 86 dollars, I guess thats about right.

Banned pretty much hit the nail. For 90 bucks, not bad. No way it's worth anywhere near the MSRP of $2500. I think they just make something up for that. I don't think it's really worth more than probably 100 bucks.

I've seen that one before on there. One thing I've always been baffled by is the fact the date window has 39 days. So EVERY month you need to adjust the date window. Why in the world would you put 39 days on a date window?!?!?! I just don't get that one..... :confused1:

I have an ESQ Quest quartz chronograph with this date set up.

It has two date wheels one with 0-3 and the other with 0-9.

I haven't really taken time to see what mine does on the last day of the month, but I know that it doesn't go all the way to 39.

I pulled out the manual for this watch and according to the manual the ESQ Big Date Three Hand watch does go all the way to 39, but the Big Date Chronograph that I have only goes to 31, but both must be reset manually after short months. I don't know why they're different. I haven't had the watch long enough to have had to reset the date.

Apparently, this arrangement is not limited to Chinese movements.
