    Are these 2 watches identical???

    Hi everyone,
    I am new to watches and want to buy a simple, clean, classy watch. I have found out these 2 watches from 2 different manufacturers but with their designs are like each others so much.

    The August Steiner brand is not popular, they have better price than Daniel Wellington. Don't know much about August Steiner and their watch's quality
    What do you think???

    They sure look the same, probably made in the same Chinese factory. Those might even be two "brands" of the same company.

    Even if one is cheaper, you'd almost certainly get better value for your money by sticking with a real brand, though.

    Agree with the above and suggest you look at Orient, Junkers, Mondaine, and Zeno-Watch Basel for similar design but vastly better materials and build quality.

    yes, thank you for your advice. It seems that Daniel Wellington & August Steiner made the designs only, then a Chinese factory did the assemble.

    Those clean designs were applied by many manufacturers I don't even know. Thank you for your suggestions, they're all better, will think clearly before purchase :D

    Not even that...If you want to make a watch, there are companies in China that have catalogs...You just pick it out, order
    a couple hundred and it comes with your name on it.

    So when shall we expect to see a line of 'Little Big Feather' branded watches?

    I own that August Steiner in the "rose gold" version. I've had it for over two years. As a simple two hander there is no annoying Quartz tick and the white dial is very clean. I recommend this one out of the two! Cheers
