    Chinese watch industry links

    This is just what I've got so far

    First of all, the old firms, mostly privatized now:

    And here is some of the new breed of Chinese watchmakers, related as much to the old Hong Kong industry as to the old mainland industry. Some of these call themselves 'manufacturer' when when it would appear that they are buying complete off-the-shelf movements from an external source :-S

    Re: Chinese watch industry links

    Thanks from me too!

    Somehow I could not find a movement DB on the Tsinyi site... but I found another link that might be of interest.

    Maybe a bit OT here, sorry: Seagull uses the STxx nomenclature for their movements. Tsinyi seems to distribute Seagull brand watches but uses their own TYxx naming for the movements... are they actually equivalent, or does Tsinyi somehow modify the "STxx" Seagulls?

    Hmm... the mail admin for the public.nn.gx.cn domain is song@public.nn.gx.cn, the one for their own domain is admin@nnsme.com... maybe you want to ask one of these?

    Oh - I overlooked this.... - late reply

    The TYxxxx is equivalent to STxxxx - no modification on the movement at all.

    Former tsinyi.com site accessible again - new link inside

    After being not accessible for over a month the site formerly known as tsinyi.com (Seagull Hong Kong) is up and running again.

    New URL:
    http://www.seagullhk.com/

    Not too much fresh content, but some models introduced at the Basel fair are shown. Some info is lost during the migration to the new site, some watches are presented wrongly.
