This is the Great Wall of Phoibos. A brand new release from the Chinese micro brand. Perhaps their most ambitious project to-date. Not only is it their toughest watch with a rating of 500m water resistance. It’s also their first watch to utilize a Swiss movement, an ETA 2824-2. As such, it’s their first venture into the deeper waters of the mid-tier market.

Although perhaps the most ambitious thing about the Great Wall is the design. It’s original, and potentially polarizing. The design takes after it’s name sake with a military motif. The dial is a wall of bricks, with the indices being made up of shields and sword tips.

While that may sound a little strange, and look a little odd when you look at the individual components, as a whole it works. It’s fun, funky, and definitely original. For me it reminds me a little of Seiko Monster. With a combination of fun colors mixed with an aggressive almost industrial case design.
