Watches and clocks originate from Switzerland. At the same time, Swiss watches and clocks also represent the world’s highest watch manufacturing technology. However, China’s watch manufacturing is relatively late, and it is difficult to reach the international leading level. At present, it is only in the imitation stage. But this does not mean that domestic watches are useless. Domestic watches still have a lot of advantages. So which domestic watch brand is good, what is the 2016 domestic watch brand list? Today, let the watch home lead you to find out.
At present, there are many domestic watch brands, including well-known brands: Fiyta, Seagull, Rossini, Shanghai, Beijing, Ebo, and Tianwang. Among them, Seagull Watch, Shanghai Watch and Beijing Watch should be the earliest among domestic watches, and have been praised by national leaders many times. As for the ranking, in fact, the ranking of domestic watches is not as clear as that of Swiss watches. More often, it depends on the brand’s watchmaking technology and popularity.
Shenzhen Fiyta (Group) Co., Ltd. was established in 1987. It is the only watch company listed in the country. After years of hard work, it has grown into a flagship watch company in China, integrating watch research and development, design, manufacturing and sales. With the famous brand of ‘Fiyta’ and the commercial brand of ‘Hengli’, the marketing network covers the whole country and extends to foreign countries.
Fiyta’s professional watch brand has accompanied Chinese astronauts to battle space for many times, and has achieved watch legends with its outstanding performance. Fiyta watches present exquisite craftsmanship, ingenious design, and record the perfect moment in life for tasters. The product style ahead of the trend, while interpreting the classic watch culture, also conveys the perception of time and the proposition of life.
Tianjin Seagull Watch Group Co., Ltd. is an enterprise group consisting of sixteen watch professional manufacturers and four joint ventures, with Tianjin Watch Factory as the main body. The total assets of the group: 96.747 million yuan, the total number of employees registered in the group: 9,955. The company’s current products are composed of diversified series of products such as manufacturing mechanical watches, electronic watches, quartz clocks, special clocks (including architectural clocks) and defense machinery timing products, precision machining and electronic device processing.
After the birth of China’s first watch in Tianjin in 1955, the company announced its establishment and repeatedly set milestones for the Chinese national watch industry; China’s first electronic watch, the first independent (self-designed) mechanical watch (Dongfeng Watch) and The first women’s watches that met international standards were born here. At the same time, Tianjin Watch Factory and Hong Kong Huacheng Watch Co., Ltd. jointly created China’s first export watch (Seagull Watch). Today, Seagull Watch is still the only state-owned enterprise brand in the country to occupy a place in the domestic and foreign watch market. Since then, nearly a hundred products such as multi-level and multi-variety two series (men’s and women’s) single and dual calendar automatic watches have continuously enriched the company’s technology reserve and main product system, and the company and its products have repeatedly won awards.
In July 1984, as the earliest Sino-foreign joint venture established in China’s watch industry, Rossini was born under the economic background of oversupply of watch products with a price of 3.1 million US dollars. In the early days of the business, the company introduced a full set of Swiss-made gold-plated case equipment and processing technology, relying on advanced technology to produce high-end watch cases that are matched with domestic and foreign watches. enterprise. In 1988, the gold-plated case produced by Rossini was confirmed by Guangdong Province as a ‘top-in’ product. Among them, the 1095 and 5014 gold-plated cases were awarded the Guangdong Province Quality Product Award; in April 1991, round and shaped gold-plated watches Shell won the Gold Medal of the Second Beijing Expo. As a result, Rossini quickly occupied the domestic high-end watch case market that was blank at the time, and achieved good economic benefits.
Since 1990, the company has adjusted its product structure in a timely manner in accordance with changes in the watch market, shifting from pure production of high-end cases to large-scale watch production, and has strengthened the further development of the ‘Rossini’ brand.

In 1991, it became the only national secondary enterprise in Zhuhai. .
In 1958, the Shanghai Watch Factory was formally established and produced the first batch of Shanghai brand watches, rewriting the history that the Chinese can only repair watches but cannot make watches. In the 1970s, Shanghai brand watches had to be purchased by ticket. After more than thirty years, watches were everywhere. The Shanghai brand watch scene was no longer, and successful men extended their hands to old foreign brands such as Vacheron Constantin, Rolex, and Omega. Those who like to compose music also pay attention to limited editions such as gold shell, diamonds and sapphire glass. However, Feng Shui is taking turns. In the entertainment circle of Hong Kong and Taiwan, Shanghai brand watches have been sought after, and there is no lack of fans among the young people in the Mainland. The moment the wrist is revealed, the old Shanghai brand mechanical watches always cause a scream. . In the collection circle, Shanghai brand watches have become a new highlight.
Fashionable world brand clothing, coupled with a Shanghai-branded vintage watch, this kind of time and space produces a unity of beauty in distance, and has become a new fashion in Hong Kong and even in Europe and America. As one of the ‘oldest three’ Shanghai brand watches, after entering the 21st century, it is re-popular in the market and reveals a thought-provoking topic: Shanghai brand still has a huge gold content and a vast market potential as a time-honored brand. , More used to give away. This watch is an excellent gift. The ‘Shanghai’ brand’s gold content is the 58 years of historical and cultural gold content.

Which domestic watch brand is good, and what is the 2016 domestic watch brand list?

Domestically produced watches are still far below the quality and grade of Swiss watches, but with the efforts of the older generation of Chinese watchmakers, their own technology has been continuously improved. It is believed that in the years to come, domestic watch brands will make persistent efforts under the efforts of a new generation of Chinese watchmakers and create glory belonging to Chinese watchmaking.

Almost 90% of mechanical watches on the market use hairsprings provided by Nivarox under the Swatch Group. There are only a few watch factories that can make their own hairsprings.

The Metro 38 Datum is equipped with a DUW4101 hand-wound movement.

Arceau Time Suspendu
Time is considered immutable and difficult to tame, but for Hermès time is a good friend. It gives leather luster and enriches history with many small stories. It is a real asset and it stimulates imagination. Arceau pause time is indeed a watch. But it means more than a watch.
Arceau pause time is indeed a watch. But its significance is far more than that of a watch: for a moment full of playfulness on the wrist, just press the 9 o’clock button to stop the hour and minute hands at 12 o’clock, and the date hand disappears. Time is paused … or, the appearance of time is suspended–because the mechanism is still recording the precise time, as if the instrument continues to play in the background, but the stage remains silent.

Since its birth in 1908, Rolex has gone through more than 100 years of history. Over the centuries, Rolex has persisted in its unremitting pursuit of precision timekeeping, and through continuous exploration and innovation, has interpreted the legend condensed between minutes.
Rolex’s legendary history
Hans-Wilsdorf was born in 1881. As early as the early 20th century, he entered the Swiss watch manufacturing industry. It was an era when pocket watches were prevalent, and Hans-Wilsdorf had already begun brewing his watch dream. At that time, the timekeeping of the watch was not very accurate, and it was only regarded as a jewelry favored by women, with very little production. But curiosity and creative nature have made Hans-Wilsdorf see the huge potential of the watch market. He firmly believed that watches were equally beautiful, precise and durable, and since then he has been dedicated to fulfilling his dreams.
To impress discreet customers, Wilsdorf puts the quality of the movement first. He has always insisted that the watch movement be sent to the official quality control agency for testing, and constantly improve the reliability of the watch movement. His relentless pursuit of precision timing soon made him realize the joy of success. In 1910, the Official Watch Rating Centre in Biel awarded a Swiss Rolex official certification to a Rolex, the first Swiss official to grant such a certification. Four years later, in 1914, Rolex was awarded a Class A certificate by the Kew Observatory, which was only used to evaluate marine timepieces. At this point, the watch has become synonymous with precision.
Rolex designs many world-renowned watches for some of the world’s most influential celebrities. In 1926, the first waterproof and dust-proof watch was born, which is another important milestone in the development history of Rolex. This Oyster watch has a completely sealed case, which acts like a miniature safe and provides the best protection for the movement. The following year, a young British female swimmer, Mercedes Gleitze, wore an oyster watch across the English Channel, and when she reached the end, the watch was safe. With this move, Wilsdorf fully verified the outstanding quality of Rolex watches. After this historic event, Wilsdorf published an advertisement on the front page of the Daily Mail, announcing the successful launch of the waterproof watch, and the oyster watch entered the stage of history. , And gradually swept the world. At the same time, this historic event also opened a prelude to Rolex’s invitation to legendary athletes to endorse the brand. Their adventurous spirit and extraordinary courage are the best interpretation of Rolex’s quality.
These outstanding watches also inspire a long-term passion for exploration and sense of achievement. In 1953, an expedition consisting of Sir John Hunt, Sir Edmund Sheila, and guide Tenzin Norgay wore an Oyster Perpetual watch and first climbed Everest. In 1960, Jacques Picard’s deep-sea submersible Trieste dived into the deep sea of 10,916 meters in the Demariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. A prototype version of the Oyster watch Deep Sea Special was fixed outside the submersible and dived into the deep sea, withstanding pressures exceeding 1 metric ton per square centimeter.
Rolex Achievement Hall
Rolex’s legend can only be fulfilled by adding the Rolex Achievement Hall. The Rolex Achievement Hall is a series of non-commercial activities created by the Rolex brand, involving charity and education. In 1976, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the birth of the Oyster watch, in order to commemorate the brand’s prosperous period, the company established Rolex’s talented generals, which was designed to encourage scientific and medical, innovative technology, exploration and development, environmental protection or cultural heritage. Visionary and innovative people, support their unremitting efforts to improve the living environment.
Founded in 2002, Rolex’s Creativity Recommendation Self-Help Program seeks young artists who show extraordinary talent in the fields of dance, literature, music, drama and visual arts, so that they form a one-to-one one-to-one relationship with the masters in their category. Creative cooperation and mentoring relationship.
The Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II watch designed for marine sports is the first high-end mechanical watch with a preset countdown and mechanical memory. With this unprecedented superb technology, the Yacht-Master II can set a countdown from 0 to 10 minutes according to the sequence of sailing time.
Persevering in the spirit of exploration and continuous improvement, this is where the Rolex philosophy lies.
BUGATTI VITESSE: BUGATTI
In the spring of 2012, the Bugatti Molsheim plant launched its latest sports car during the Geneva International Auto Show.
At the auto show, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the new Bugatti Roadster, unveiled its mysterious veil and showed its futuristic lines to the outside world. Meanwhile, Michelle Parmigiani and her team are working hard to add new members to the Bugatti family. Now the new Bugatti VITESSE watch is born, it will have the same name as the Bugatti VITESSE sports car and inherit the unique characteristics of the Bugatti sports car.
BUGATTI VITESSE continues the outstanding design concept of the previous generation BUGATTI SUPER SPORT watch, the dial setting wheel and the movement’s main axis are at an angle of 90 °. The design, which debuted in 2010, includes a double pinion system with a bevel gear transmission, and a complex mechanism that displays time vertically.
The new watch maintains the extraordinary technical craftsmanship of the previous generation movement, but uses a new lug shape, making great efforts in materials, colors and design, and strives to further enhance the similarity with sports cars.
BUGATTI VITESSE is the fastest sports car in the world. It uses an unusual spray paint process and presents a modern alloy color combining bright and matte colors, which makes the entire sports car show a rigorous and luxurious style. Therefore, in order to reproduce this tough guy style in the watch, the designer chose titanium. The case of BUGATTI VITESSE is perfectly polished and frosted, just like the ultimate design from the future. At the same time, compared with the first generation of BUGATTI SUPER SPORT, the new watch is ‘more masculine’.
Another innovation in the selection of the new watch is that the dial is made of Texalium®, a glass fiber covered with a thin aluminum layer, which has a more reflective effect than the carbon fiber used in BUGATTI SUPER SPORT.
In order to reflect the concept of ‘speed is better than everything’, BUGATTI VITESSE has redesigned the dial, and strives to convey this concept perfectly. The hour-marker scale is designed into a spindle shape, creating the feel of a sports car accelerating the instrument panel and revitalizing the entire oval dial.
The aesthetics of the new watch has been further improved, and the watch’s contours are perfected. The crown is inlaid with agate or lapis lazuli, which makes the entire timepiece shine. Blue and orange with different dial colors, each engraved with Parmigiani’s acronym ‘PF’.
BUGATTI VITESSE represents a new height in the BUGATTI SUPER SPORT collection, full of endless creativity and legend. The classic elements of the collection are preserved in the new watch, including its distinctive appearance and revolutionary mechanical mechanism. The innovation of the watch lies in the use of new materials and colors, which also brings a new look and different feel to the collection.
BUGATTI VITESSE highlights
The PF 372 manual winding movement (10-day power reserve) has a double-sided design to highlight the contours of the new watch. The complete PF 372 movement is designed and manufactured by Parmigiani. Assembled with 6 pieces of sapphire crystal, 333 movement parts are at a glance. The highly streamlined contour is reminiscent of the shape of Parmigiani’s iconic case. The oval dial has a hollow design and is mounted on a vertical axis. The dial is made of Texalium® and is the same color as the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. The dial scale is spindle-shaped, creating a feeling of accelerating the instrument panel. The bridge is black gold polished and frosted, and the Geneva ornamentation. The gear train bridge is designed with a three-dimensional inward angle, which shows Parmigiani’s superb craftsmanship. The dynamometer crown is slightly higher than the profile and blends perfectly with the case, making it easy to wind and set the time with a single press.
In 2004, Parmigiani revolutionized the fine watchmaking industry by mounting the entire movement of the BUGATTI TYPE 370 watch on a horizontal axis, which looked like a car’s engine block. The movement’s five splints are connected by a cylindrical component, while the gear train is cut into the shape of a wheel.
In 2010, Parmigiani assembled all the mechanical parts of the new movement Bugatti PF 372 on a vertical axis, while using the 90 ° time display function, which was well received by car drivers.
Parmigiani successfully developed the world’s first 90 ° time setting system by integrating the double pinion system of the bevel gear transmission, and the BUGATTI SUPER SPORT watch was born.
In 2012, Parmigiani re-adopted the legendary movement and design of BUGATTI SUPER SPORT, but changed its shape, color and materials, and launched a tougher watch-BUGATTI VITESSE.
