What to look for when buying a Chinese watch
Since the second half of the 80s of last century, the most popular watches of Chinese production were "Montana". They had from 7 to 16 melodies. Surprisingly many masters, these Chinese watches were a synthesis of low price and high reliability.
In those times, at least once a man wore a watch that was made in China. Therefore, it was difficult to call them an original gift, since they were at every second person on hand.
The paradox of watches from the Middle Kingdom is often that the replacement of batteries in them can cost more than the clock itself. It is the Chinese wristwatches produced in those days that are the basis for creating today's range of products of this type.
Today, the goods produced in China are basically forgeries of expensive, well-known brands in the world, whose originals cost sky-high money. In most cases, their similarity to the real ones is so amazing that even people who know the sense of the clock can not immediately distinguish a copy. Most often, Japanese and Swiss stamps are forged.
Sometimes there are also such cases that as a result of the pursuit of a cheaper production to guess which brand the producer wanted to copy, it is simply impossible. Such Chinese watches usually cost a penny, and it would seem that the material from which they are made is more expensive than themselves.
In China, most manufacturers are located within the same province, which is a free economic zone, and are mainly focused on the domestic market of the country.
Chinese watches in their majority are built on the basis of Japanese mechanisms, due to which their inherent qualities are accuracy and reliability. But, despite this, the quality of the assembly, the fitting of the elements to each other at times leaves much to be desired.
There are often cases when the quality of the coating on the metal or plastic housing is very low. That's why after a short time the thing begins to change color, and the coating "slazit" and rarely holds more than six months. However, these shortcomings are a consequence of inexpensive production, because of which the production of quality goods is practically impossible.
The second significant drawback that Chinese wrist watches possess (male in particular) is poor water protection. Despite the fact that the vast majority of the mechanisms of Chinese production have a corresponding mark in English, it can not be a guarantee of their watertightness.
In order to buy really high-quality watches of Chinese production, it is necessary to pay attention to small things. These are: the presence of instructions in Russian, the quality of printing, the absence of flaws on the strap, the quality of packaging.
But even the above factors can not guarantee good quality. Therefore, buying a Chinese watch, it is better to obtain the recommendations of the owners who use them for a certain time. But anyway, the price of them plays a priority role. Therefore, if you do not have a large amount of money, then a watch from China is your choice!
