To me; it's what is actually there that counts.

That would be; a really nicely printed dial which seems to be true to the original pilot/rocketeer watches; a very nicely executed and finished case and a movement that is not only nicely finished but works well.

As they say; a watch in hand is worth way more than a dozen in the cyberbush

I am actually of the opinion that these DG; NN and Hangzhou movements are not only the equivalent of the Seiko 6r15 and Citizen 82xx but could easily be the better made

This is not just idle conjecture but an opinion garnered from my own experiences with these movements and those of real watchmakers like lysanderxiii and several guys on other forums who know their way around mechanical watch movements
