There is a word "Quartz" on the dial; however, I am not sure it is a quartz watch before I open the case back.

The glow in the dark material is very weak, less than 2 minutes, I cannot tell the time.

The photo was taken immediately after turning off the light. ( f 4.3 , 1/2 sec )

The watch claims water resistance as 3 ATM.

Screw down case back

The graphic on the case back is very sharp and clear.


The price of this watch is cheap, the quality is very low.

  • The edges of the watch case are sharp which may cut the skin.

  • The bezel is too slick for me to turn it.

The band is also too long for me, a hold should be made if I can wear it comfortably.

I will give this Poor Man's Watch some tests and disassemble it at last, keep coming back.
