This unique timepiece is characterized by sub-dials where the left one displays weekday, the right one displays
month. The month indicator will jump forward once 31st day has passed each
month. This is indicative of the sophistication of Miyota 9122 movement, unlike
other cheap movement of which the month indicator is not linked to the date
mechanism thus has to be adjusted manually after 31st has passed each
month. A good watch well worth the price!
the “three flavor true fire” version, two piles of red flame are eye-catching and adorable. The left sub-dial displays weekday in Chinese, the right sub-dial displays month in 24 solar terms. China is historically an agriculture-based
civilization. Year after year peasants sow, cultivate, harvest in accordance
with these twenty-four seasonal divisions that represent twenty-four climate changes in one-year cycle.
