If I had the money for that watch... I’d spend it on anime, instead. But it is really neat!

Charging that much and not mentioning the type of movement kinda gives me pause. I'm also a watch collector and while I like mechanical watches there are vast differences in movement quality (Seiko,Miyota, etc), and at that price just looks like a cash grab since they are not mentioning it. A good movement is not much extra and a great selling feature, not disclosing it is kinda cheesy and suspicious.

Agreed. I browsed though the Japanese order page and they only said that the movement is Japan-made.

I only ever bought one anime mechanical watch in my time and it was the super-limited Homura shield watch sold only at the Madoka Magica Event in 2012. That one was a Miyota 8N24, but still cost a pretty penny.
