Aeromatic 1912 Watches : A1032 Black Dial Leather Men Watch

What do you think?

To echo Stainless' comments... A triple calendar day-night movement is Not Simple. A triple calendar doesn't account for varying month lengths, so it's not as complex as annual and perpetual calendars that do...but it's still quite a few more parts. At this price point? It's simply not going to be made very well. Heck, looking at the pics for that model on their web site, using the zoom. The details are execrable. Cheap!! indices and hands.
I have their sister brand Tauchmeister and have been very happy, so I would try one!
I have owned this watch for a month and a half now, I bought it from Long Island watch, and I’d say that while yes there isn’t much brand heritage and no information in the movement, I have had no problems, the accuracy has sometimes been within chronometer standards, it functions remarkably well for something of its price, and the best thing about is it that it both hacks and hand winds, so setting it accurately is incredibly easy and it is not difficult to keep a decent wind in it or to get it running again. Would definitely recommend to anyone wondering about it.
Depends on the context of your question. Most importantly however is what YOU think? If I said this watch has ZERO provenance, and has no consistency in parts suppliers (meaning you could open two side by side and the movements and finish will likely be very different), would it matter? A time piece should be most important to the person wearing it, and no one else.
Aeromatic is a line of watches made in China using various parts, and are essentially "Ebay Watches", meaning you won't likely find these in a brick and mortar store, and are watches created to be sold online only. This watch has no history really, either as a brand OR a product. If I were looking at this as a first watch, it looks good enough, but I can also think of a lot of watches I would rather spend $170 on or towards than this, albeit lacking a moon phase. If a moon phase intrigues you though, all the better. A lot of Chinese movements are also very difficult to work on and get corresponding parts for in the case of a service, which behooves me as well.
Piece spoken, again though I come back around to the simple.... Get what makes YOU happy, wear it with good spirit and health man.
