How to quickly and easily identify the quality of the watch movement?

- May 07, 2019-

Simply put: the quality of the watch movement is directly related to the price of the watch. Although it is not possible to say that the more expensive the table is, the better the manufacturer of the cheap watch will not use precious metal parts and hand-polished modifications.


The quality of the watch movement can be seen from several aspects, such as: plate shape, sanding modification, travel stability, power reserve time, thin movement... The watch that is not back-to-back is stable and accurate as long as the movement is stable. Ok, but when the watch dares to expose the movement, the movement becomes the core of the watch.


Swiss watches with a price of less than 30,000 yuan, the movement is difficult to escape the scope of the ETA universal movement. Good stability and lack of beauty. More than 30,000 yuan, enter the Rolex entry level stainless steel watch. However, the Rolex Oyster watch is not transparent, and you can't see the Rolex's stable and durable movement.


More than 60,000 can enjoy the self-produced movements of Jaeger-LeCoultre, Zenith Watch, and Chopard Watch. You will see what is the "Geneva Stripe" polished or even precious metal automatic Tuo.



More than 10,000, you can encounter a movement with the "Geneva Seal", with this imprint basically represents the highest level of movement in Switzerland. Before 2009, Patek Philippe was the brand of the “Geneva Seal” of its own self-produced movement. In 2009, Patek Philippe withdrew from the “Geneva Seal” certification system and founded Patek Philippe’s proprietary “Pak Patrick Print”.
