    Coinwatches

    Any one know anything about Coinwatches...I'm looking for a unique gift for my grandfather who collects rare coins, and thought this would be something he may enjoy...I'm not sure, but wanted to see if any one had any insight on this brand

    thanks!

    I checked out the site, but there is very little technical info.
    I assume the following:
    The watches are made in PRC, the price is way too low to be made anywhere else.
    Cheap Quartz movements (they state "battery" --> Quartz)
    I am amused by the statement " Swiss components" . The battery maybe?
    ------:------- " Hardened mineral glass blasted crystal"

    I think these are what I would call "novelty watches".
    Do not expect any great watches for this price. But I am sure your granddad would find them fun and interesting!!
    Byt do not expect more.

    Unfortunately, the original coin watch, as made by Corum, is quite expensive.

    If he collects rare coins he probably will not enjoy coinwatches.com-watches.
