    Chinese electronic caliper on last photo costs $15 from Ebay, I bought exactly the same last week. Now that prices of gold have dropped, maybe they can afford to buy some real professional equipment!

    As a watchmaker, I’m really surprised by the casual way they are handling the gold. Gold scratches and dents very easily, and it seems to me that they are just throwing it around. As someone who does work on gold cases themselves, I didn’t come away with a good impression of this factyory.

    I had to come back and make another comment. I have been in a factory in the USA that mainly made gold jewelry as well as watches. The retrieval systems to make sure not even a milligram of gold was lost or wasted were extensive. I see nothing like that here .It’s very rough. They are probably losing a great amount of gold every time they process or cut the cases. How can they afford this?
