    Watch shopping in Guangzhou

    I am wrapping up a trip to Guangzhou and have about a day to do some shopping. Can anyone suggest a place for Chinese mechanicals? I know that there is a thriving replica market but I'm not into that. I've found one store with Rossini and another with a brand (Goza, maybe?) using Miyota movements. Everything else is Japanese, western, or really crappy quartz. Surely there must be something for a mechanical watch nerd in this city!

    Sorry for being late.

    Several years ago I visited Guangzhou, the high street dealers were all focussing on imports but one or two smaller ones had a corner for local makes. The Guangzhou factory shop is worth a visit, who also sold other brands within the group but built elsewhere like Shenzhen; there were models not offered at their webshop (hosted by Tmall) so it's worth a look.

    As it turned out, I didn't have any free time on that last day either. A trip to the Guangzhou watch factory shop would have been perfect. Next trip, perhaps.
