    Question Jaragar watches?

    I did a search but couldn't find much on Jaragar watches.

    Are they in the same category as Goer and other cheap Chinese watches?
    I've seen some pictures of them and the finish looks very good, perfect even.






    So what's the story.
    Is the finish really very good?
    Are they waterproof?
    Do they fall apart after six months?

    By looking at the pictures they seem the deal of the century for a €20 watch.

    The detail and finish on the watch is excellent & it certainly has the appearance of a good quality piece. Much better than a Goer watch that I used to own.
    Timekeeping & reliability have also been very good. It's one of those automatics that springs to life as soon as it's picked up no matter how long it's been lying in the box.

    Two more pics....

    This one shows the lovely guilloche style dial pattern.......



    ......'Swiss Design' on the bottom of the dial.


    .......attractive rotor decoration with oddly offset pivot......



    Cheers

    Thank you. I now feel confident in buying a Jaragar watch.
    I was browsing some more on this forum and noticed the picture borrowed was indeed from here. :)

    Do you know anything about Winner branded watches. They also look very good on pictures.

    This is a nice looking watch, did you purchase it on eBay? I've been looking there, but haven't been able to find a similar model, perhaps they have discontinued it since four years ago.

    Yes, ebay. Just checked & I actually bought it in Feb 2008 from seller 'dingyenghee'. At the time 'daliva'also had them. I haven't seen the model offered anywhere since then

    Thanks, it's a pity, because the dial is very elegant.

    The pivot isn't offset... it's a sticker on the main "real" rotor ;)

    It's a 20 euro watch...engraving costs money you know :D

    I've seen a few Jaragars on ebay, mostly open hearts. Lucky123shop seems to be carrying some Jaragar models right now. Nothing as nice as the photos that have been posted though.

    Re: Jaragar watches?

    Actually every.deal has a nice Jaragar Chronograph listed under "NEW White Automatic Mechanical 6 Hands Mens Watch Light" I have purchase several watches from him. With the exception of one Fuyate that looks like a factory reject, I've been quite happy with his watches.

    Yes, I ended up ordering one of the open heart models, but I do like the simple elegance of the white dialed model above.
