Higher end Chinese watches?

Just watched this about the Behrens watches. Looks cool 馃槑

What do you think?

Amazing to look at but not sure I`d ever want to own one, even if I could afford it 馃槀

Good call!馃槀

I like what they are doing, but will need more time for reliability. Their Joker collab is great, but do I want to drop $9k on a watch that potentially no one can service?

That鈥檚 what holds me back from seriously considering watches like this one and the Ciga Blue Planet. They鈥檙e neat watches and blow the claim that all Chinese watches are poor quality out of the water, but what happens in a few years when you need to service it? It鈥檚 not just Chinese watches, either. Take Bulova. They鈥檙e still alive and kicking, but even with the kind of heritage they have it鈥檚 hard to find anyone who can service a vintage Spaceview.

I've heard they have a large service team eager and ready to help.

I鈥檝e been eyeing the behrens navigraph, only thing holding me back is the service and also the price point鈥 so many cool watches not enough money lol.

$2.5k on a Behrens navigraph vs $2.5k for a used tudor gmt or pro鈥.

Wait til a few thousand are out there in the field via reviews. My position on Chinese watches is that I would prefer a casio ,seiko, ETA , Selita , Kinesi , Omega , Lamania , Rolex , Springdrive in that order roughly . Porsche or Lada ? Which would you drive ? Watches to me are the same . Buy the best you can afford. A Casio over any Chinese watch to my mind is a no brainer . ( Opinion )

No thanks. It's not my taste at all. But mainly it's Chinese ( CCP) so that's a hard No!

Supporting the CCP isn鈥檛 part of my modus operandi . I am ethically opposed to spending a single satoshi on anything from mainland China 馃嚚馃嚦. If it鈥檚 from Taiwan 馃嚬馃嚰 I will reserve the above ethical stance for mainland China only .

That鈥檚 fine, but let鈥檚 talk watches not politics.

True, so much to choose from

Rare complications

But not for me

Yes, it influences the buying decision, but the watch can be cool regardless
