Red Star Solo, Hand Wind Mechanical Watch with Thick Dome Crystal #7982G-B

The Red Star Solo (single hand) watch features a Belarus 15-jewel, hand winding mechanical movement. Accuracy is rated at +25 to -5 seconds per day. The (double curve) dome crystal and dial design of the watch mimics a vintage style Japanese clock that appears in the opening of the T.V. show Saturday Night Live (clock is shown in images). Both the crystal and the dial are convex shaped. The solo hand is also convex to follow the contour of the dial.

The watch has a sand blasted stainless steel case that is 40mm in diameter and 15mm thick (7mm of the thickness is the dome crystal). The black color dial features a single white hand to indicate both the hour and minutes. The time shown in the images is 10:10. The screw-in caseback features a rendering of St. Petersburg, Russia.

The military nato-style strap is a very dark brown suede leather. The lug with is 20mm should you want to change out the strap at some point. Water resistance is 30 meters. Push-pull crown.

One-handed watch. October 12, 2018
Reviewer: Manuel Juniega from Santa Clara, CA United States  
It's a good watch. Good for near-sighted but not for far-sighted because it's hard to see the minutes. I'm near-sighted, so it's perfect for me. I loved it.

It came with a sand-paper thin nato bracelet. I loved the bracelet that came with, even though it felt cheap. Even though I loved the bracelet, I replaced it with Barton quick-release leather strap. Actually, the first thing I would do with a new watch is to replace the bracelet with a quick-release.

Great Style July 10, 2018
Reviewer: Reece Merrill-Currie from Snohomish, WA United States  
I've been wearing the watch almost daily since I got it. I made a switch to a tan leather NATO strap. Definitely goes well with the classic look. One thing about the domed crystal: it scratches very easily because it sticks out so much from the wrist. I don't mind & unless in direct sunlight the scratches are hard to perceive.

Ancient Chinese secret May 30, 2018
Reviewer: Adrian Shipley from Omaha , NE United States  
I’ve been building my watch collection on unique pieces and nothing could be more unique this red star solo hand. Takes little bit of getting used to where the minute marks are they mark off on the 10 minute marks in a little hashmarks in between them are two minute marks. It can be a little interesting if you have to re-use reading glasses to read but not impossible to read the watch. The only thing I found out about it is setting  the time need to be done at the beginning of the hour and better at the even hour.  Watch is perfect for someone who needs to know the time but not the exact time every single minute. I use it for my weekends I have totally off nowhere to go and nothing to do

Unique design, comfortable, good build quality. April 12, 2018
Reviewer: Max from Townsville, Queensland Australia  
I had this watch on my list for a couple of months before pulling the trigger. Initially, I had concerns about how the build quality would be, how well the movement would function etc. as this is, as I understand it, a Chinese made watch. Not that that condemns the watch immediately, but it seems that even reputable Chinese brands sometimes slip up in QA.

However, I was pleasantly surprised when I received this. I've only had it for a day so far, but the build quality is superb, the watch feels great and sturdy. The dial is beautiful, and very intricate. Even the band, although quite thin (and probably not real suede?), is very comfortable and looks great.

Such a unique watch, for a great price. From initial impression alone, I'd say that this watch punches well above it's price class.
