Watch movement ranking, quality?

- Mar 26, 2019-

Swiss ETA core is the best, about Swiss ETA core - look at the following two categories to understand:

Inspired by the previous classification of imported watches in China, the world watches are re-graded, hoping to provide some reference for friends who want to buy new watches. There are shortcomings, please expert advice. Because I am used to referring to Rolex, IWC, etc. as a kind of table, so I refer to the table with higher grade than labor as a super table. The classification is mainly based on the power of the watchmaker, the grade and price of the brand, without considering the factors of the material of the watchcase.


1. Super table: It is good at making complex function tables, polishing well, fully showing the technical strength of the meter factory. The brand has a very high gold content, limited output, and the price is more than 100,000 yuan. Patek Philippe, Abby, Jiang Sidanton; A. LANGE & SOEHNE, Baoji, ROGER DUBIUS; PARMIGIANIPAMA, Johnny, Popper (complex, common) for one category; Athens (complex, common) for one category; FRANK MULLER Frankmueller (complex, common) for one category; GLASHUETTE ORIGAL GRASSOTI (GUB39 automatic machine core and female watch for one category); Chiba (compound); Miscellaneous paragraph, General paragraph for one category.

2. Class I: Classic table suitable for the status of high-salaried people in China. Rolex; IWC World; Jijia; Cartier; Chopin; Earl.

3. Class II: Suitable for high-paid watchers in China. Increase your intelligence (Zhenli); KELEK; Kunlun; DANIEL ROTH; GERALD GENTA Zunda; UNION (Germany); CHRONOSWISS Ruibao; PANERAI Penahai; Omega; DUBEY & SCHALDENBRAND; EBEL Jade Treasure.

Note 1: Many products of the same brand are different, so according to their proportions, they are classified as super-grade ones. They are good at complex function tables, and complex function tables account for a considerable proportion in their products, or the machine core is polished to a high level and the brand positioning is high.

For example: Athens and Frankmueller common style is based on ETA2892, but does not affect the overall image. Grassuti launched several Tour Flywheels, flying back countdown, double gooseneck fine-tuning core has been out of the ordinary image of GUB39 core, can fight against the LANGE court.

IWC is also good at complex function tables, but most of its products are relatively ordinary, so it is classified as first class, several are the same.

Chopin is one of the first class because of his own core of LUC and high quality jewelry watch.

Increasing your intelligence could have been better, but it still needs the efforts of the new president.

KELEK technology is super grade, and the core material is of the second class.

DANIELROTH relies on design. GERALD GENTA is not the mainstream after all, although it has complex limitations. UNION's core is generally polished, but all of its own core has complex functions.

The new single button timer has won the Swiss Watch Magazine Award. It has a bright future and can be ranked in the first class.

Omega could only be classified into two categories, with coaxial arrest and 3303 mandrels. Yubao relies on a timetable that is still counted as its own core.

4. Class II and Class I: With the backbone of ETA, most of them prefer to use the advanced core of ETA. They have certain renovation and polishing technology or design with emphasis on prominent, occupying the middle-level and high-level areas, which is suitable for the middle class and personality people in China. Bainianling, Dirudder (borrowing Rolex's light), TAG HEUER luxury (Deluxe), PAUL PICOT, MARTIN BRAUN, Mingshi, Amy, PORSCHE Design Porsche (OEM, Design Victory), IKEPOD (Designer Table, Most Observatories Level), ALAIN SILBERSTEIN Shauberstein, EBERHARD (Strong Modification Function of Machine Core, CHRONO4 Amazing), VULCA Vergen (From Home Alarm Core), BVRGALGARI Grey, HUBLOT, VENTURA (Designer Table, Most Observatory Level).

5. Class II and Class II: With the backbone of the middle and low-level core of ETA, the changes are not big, the polishing is general, the tool is strong, the price is about 5,000 to 15,000, which is suitable for the consumption of the Chinese people. Radar, radars, Movato, ETERNA's coming years (quality differs from Porsche), XEMEX, REVUE THOMMENSomman, PERRLET, SCHWARZ ETIENNE, Longqin, FORTIS, MINERA, MINERA, JACQUES ETOILE, DANIEL JEAN-RICHARD; Germany: TUTIMA Dima, SINN, NIVREL, NIVREL (a few brands still using LEMANIMANIMA8810), MUEHLHLE, NOMOS, NOMOS, RAEMEX, REVUE THOMMEN THOMMENsomman, PERRLET, SCHWARZ ETIENNE, SCHWARZ ETIENNE, Longqin, FORTIS, FORTIS, HAUER, SOTHIS, TEMPTIO N.

Illustration 2: There are many high-quality items in the second class tables, such as the 2892 plus 10000 calendar module or those with increased your intelligence, which are also expensive. It mainly refers to its comprehensive level and market positioning.

Six, three categories: the price of goods with ETA basic core, but the quality is guaranteed, authentic manufacturers brand, the price of the majority of less than 10,000 yuan, for the basic style of playing watch. ORIS Horizon; Tissot; HAMILTON Hamilton; MIDO Mido; ZENO; MARCELLO C; DAVOSA; some small German brands carrying ETA (including 7750, UNITAS), such as LIMES, KAUFMANN, LACO and so on.

7. Four categories: Old European and American brands bought by Asia and some low-end brands only aimed at the Asian market, using ETA cheap core or Japanese core, the quality is reasonable. About 12,000 yuan, the Swiss watch most frequently contacted by the Chinese civilian class belongs to this list: plum blossom, Inague, Rome, Sima, Epolo, Berando, Acehwa, DOXA, SANDOZ, Nevida. Orma, BULOVA and so on.

There are also four types of Swiss quartz watches: Swatch Swatch and CERTINA Citronella. German JUNHANS atomic catalogue. Russian flight chronometer (imitation of Swiss 7734 core).

8. Five categories: Seiko; West Rail City; Oriental (Double Lions); Casio; Russian flight alarm watches and Rostock (past military watches).

Explanation 3: I haven't had any contact with GRAND SEIKO. It may be Japanese boasting or some tables.
