    I second the addition of a Miyota entry. Thanks for your continued work - the wiki has grown to the point where it is averaging about 10,000 hits per week from all over the world. It truly has become the go-to resource for quick reference material about the Chinese watch industry!

    Cool

    Your vision for a one-stop-shop for independent information on Chinese watches really is starting to come true.

    ...and yet there is still so much to do.

    Re: Chinese Watch Industry Wiki

    I've begun a page on clone movements featuring info gathered from a number of other pages in the wiki.

    I would like begin the page by addressing the legal/ip status of these movements - but there's a real shortage of facts about this. Many of today's popular ETA movements are based on decades-old movements, some of which were developed by marques which went bankrupt in the 1960's and 70's. I'm assuming these movements were patented - are the patents for these still valid? The most prevalent Miyota and Seiko movements are similar-aged. Are their designs still protected?

    In the case of Chinese clones of these famous movements, each clone has subtle differences which make it unique from the originals - do these variations in effect render them their own, unique movements? If not... what about instances such as the ST16, where are clearly influenced by an earlier design yet deviate substantially from that design with additional refinements and features?

    It would be terrific if we found someone with factual insight into these issues, instead of the usual internet speculation.

    Great work Gigfy!

    (I might insert some cross-references if I can find the time)

    Great work also Ian for the Clone Movements page. I've added a bit on Orient clones, but I hope others can help add some hard facts to this topic.

    Re: Chinese Watch Industry Wiki

    Hey guys, I just added the info from cnmark:thanks regarding official government Chinese watch standards. You can see the page here: http://www.tractionink.com/watch_wik...atch_Standards
    I added a link to it from the Table of Contents as well under Other Resources.
    Only problem I had was that the Wiki does not allow uploading of PDFs for some reason.
    So, I'm not sure how to make the actual PDF available. Can it be hosted somewhere? It's 15 pages so I decided not to upload each page as a separate jpg for obvious reasons
