At the Watch Production Factory

Posted on December 29, 2011 by

At this factory, they produce watches by installing Japanese or Swiss quartz mechanisms  into watchcases made of precious metals.

Here, at the design department, they design watches.

    Why should one buy this, russian watches with swiss/japanese movements (moreover the quartz shit, which costs like 10$ to produce) when you can buy original mechanical watches of swiss or japanese manufacture.

    I heard recently that even the most expensive Swiss brands use clockworks made in… China.

    • yeoldesnake says:

      That’s wrong. There is Swiss norm dated 23.12.1971 (obligatory up to now) which regulates placement “Swiss made” sign on watches. So any watch is Swiss-made if:
      A. It’s movement is Swiss-made.
      B. The movement is cased in Switzerland and
      C. The producer performs final testing of assembled watch in Switzerland.
      The watch movement is Swiss-made if:
      A. It was assembled in in Switzerland.
      B. It was tested by producer in Switzerland and
      C. Cost of Swiss-made components of movement makes not less than 50% of total cost of the movement (assembly costs excluded).
      So buying a watch from famous Swiss brand you still can be sure, that it’s more or less Swiss-made (given that you buy genuine watch and not fake Rolex).

    Who needs the wristwatch when one has the cell phone? Wristwatches are now more for adornment than the keeping of the time. Nice, anyway.

      Some things simply can not be replaced. Watches will never loose their value or use.

    • ZeroDrop says:

      A watch does not need to be recharged every day, and some persons let their cellphones’ batteries get empty very often, not to talk about certain places/planes where your cellphone must be off, just to tell about some little differences. Just my 2 cents.

    Japanese electronics are hard to beat. Likewise, Swiss hardware is the best. Combine the two, and you can’t go wrong.

    • ZeroDrop says:

      On the cost-benefit analysis, nothing can beat a Casio. But the beauty of a mechanical watch is amazing. I would not pay for a Rolex, for example, but it’s a piece of art.

    what is the name of the company? where can I contact them ??email me skysky127@gmail.com

    • Fockx says:

      Also interested in knowing which brand this is!

    • Ben says:

      I think the company is ‘Nika’. Nika are the best made Russian watches and the skeleton watch looks like one of theirs. I recently did some translation work for the company hence I recognise the design. Really well made watches.

  8. scott says:

    who makes the skeleton watch shown? contact me @skysky127@gmail.com

    i had several russian made watches. most common fail of these watches is that they get out of pace during day. the most wonderful it was on a digital alarm clock branded Eletronika, which got 20 minutes out of whack every day!!
