    This is down and dirty

    Chinese mechanical watch I bought at a yard sale a few years ago for $1.00. Thought to have been given as an award for something.

    The first thing to note is that this is not a Chinese watch. Aseikon was a Hong Kong brand made back in the 1970 and '80s when the HK and Chinese watch industries were completely separate. Aseikon were made with low-grade Swiss movements assembled and cased-up in Hong Kong. So there is something odd about this watch. The dial should read "Swiss Movt", not "Swiss Made".

    Yes, very odd that. Aseikon might have made some cheap watches but they never that I know of claimed to make Swiss watches so I wonder if not this could be some import they put their name on.

    Thanks for the information on this watch. I realize this is a cheapskate watch however, it does really keep good time. I use it when working in the garden.

    Not bad for $1. Here's the song that goes with it.
