They make 400 dollar tourbillions with other working complications. They have eta clones that seem on par with their swiss counterparts. They decorate their movements beautifully.

the one thing that is interesting to me about the chinese watch industry is the chinese standard movement, which is such a bizarre expression of chinese racial character that it could never have happened in any other country's watch industry ever. it's fascinating and is why i have a shanghai 7120 in my collection.

but there is nothing else interesting about the chinese watch industry, which consists otherwise of just insect race hivemind rote copying of what the european watchmakers do, but at lower quality and cost.

Hello /g/s, I just pulled the trigger on an ebay ap offshore diver chronograph for $50. Praying that it's real. After checking back and forth for like 15 minutes the only problem that I could find was something that I'll keep to myself and see if anyone else can spot it (http://www.ebay.com/itm/232151207433 _____________ https://www.audemarspiguet.com/en/watch-collection/royal-oak-offshore/26703ST.OO.A070CA.01/). Tell me if I've fucked up.

I figure if it doesn't turn out then I'll make a fuss with ebay and get my money back and if that doesn't turn out then it's only 50 buckers. If it does turn out then I've got a dope watch if I want or thousands of dollars if I want.

From Steinhart's site.

The engraving is very well done, very clean edges, and that's the problem, it's too crisp, too sharp.

It's a great watch overwall, just little pet peeves here and there. Frankly I'm of the opinion that it's impossible to do better for £300 in the new market. Mine is running well within spec at around +4s/day on wrist. Overall finish is fantastic, bracelet is excellent, clasp is a bit naff compared to the bracelet though.

AR coating ain't gonna do shit if you carefully aim your crystal directly at the midpoint between the light and the camera

The trident seems to be far less of a complex design, all the features are much larger. Making it easier to stamp.

Still very appealing though. Have recently considered a trident, but the thing giving me pause is the movement, they're just base movements, whereas for little over half of what a Trident would run me, the OVM gives me an Elaboré grade 2824, running within spec to be Top grade to boot, but that's my luck of the draw.

For the 16th month in a row (longer than the 14 month stretch during the financial crisis), Swiss Watch exports have collapsed year-over-year. As Bloomberg reports, the 16.4% plunge in October is the biggest monthly drop in seven years, as demand weakened in almost every major market for Rolex and Omega timepieces.

Bloomberg adds that shipments fell to 1.68 billion francs ($1.7 billion), the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry said in a statement Tuesday, with 13 of the top 15 markets were negative in October.

The decline was much greater than expected and was made worse because October was the weakest month of last year, according to Zuzanna Pusz, an analyst at Berenberg.

The longest slump in more than two decades is threatening employment in the Swiss watch industry, which had been riding a boom as rich Chinese bought more timepieces.

It does seem however that the rich still appreciate one thing...

a quartz watch uses a movement powered by electricity, with its speed regulated by the vibration of a piezoelectric quartz crystal.

this is distinct from a mechanical watch, which uses no electricity, and its speed is regulated (almost always) by a balance wheel that bounces back and forth around a spiral-shaped hairspring.
