Now for something completely different  Something-different
As I mentioned in the Casio thread I have been looking for something different but being unable to buy it I bought myself two cheapy's the first being the Casio and this one arrived yesterday from Ali-express ( 7 days delivery very impressed) 
I present the Sinobi yup I know it is not a name that jumps out and sounds like something you say when you sneeze. The reasons for buying this can be explained very easily , firstly I like the look of it and second was because it was cheap (£14 Inc delivery from China) 
Here are the specs 


  • Brand Name:SINOBI

  • Item Type:Quartz Wristwatches

  • Dial Diameter:44mm

  • Feature:Back Light,Water Resistant,Shock Resistant,Complete Calendar,Swim,Chronograph,Auto Date,Diver

  • Water Resistance Depth:3Bar

  • Case Shape:Round

  • Case Thickness:8mm

  • Clasp Type:Folding Clasp with Safety

  • Model Number:9655

  • Style:Fashion & Casual

  • Case Material:Stainless Steel

  • Band Material Type:Stainless Steel

  • Movement:Quartz

  • Band Length:15cm

  • Boxes & Cases Material:Leather

  • Gender:Men

  • Dial Window Material Type:Hardlex


Band Width:22mm


This watch is not going to appeal to everyone and is quite obviously very similar to a certain Oris

I am ok with this as I did not buy it for the similarity I simply wanted a cheap go to watch 
, the build is pretty naff ie bezel insert does not really line up and it has quite a bit of play , very light in weight , 
the corners of the clasp feel sharp , no idea what the quartz movement is and the caseback although having the appearance of being a screw down it is in fact a pop off type but for £14 what can I expect . 

In general I like it especially the blue dial and insert as it is a dull blue so to the bracelet has that brushed effect and is not shiny 

Here are the photos and thanks for looking .

At £14 it’s pretty good value for money and, as you wanted, looks a good “go to” watch. All in all a good buy so well spotted. Now for something completely different  3377044411

No back light I think they made a mistake with that , I simply copied and pasted the specs and missed that bit .
