Currently, there are many Chinese watches brands focused on producing items that are far from being trinkets. Designs often overshadowed by the fame and the level of perfection of European watchmaking that deserve to be reviewed.

Until recently, Chinese watches were not very appreciated, but the evolution of the brands and the development of new models with better features at competitive prices in the international market have made them important.

Brands such as Cadisen, offer high-quality watches with a price that is usually much cheaper than that of many similar models from other countries.

However, we know very little about these watches, and most of the brands are unknown to those who are not watch specialists.

Today we are going to learn a little more about the subject, curiosities, and interesting facts about the history and evolution of Chinese watchmaking up to modern times, taking into account the most important Chinese watches brands of today.

✚ Chinese watches and their history

The history of Chinese watchmaking is very associated with military life. The first Chinese wristwatch appears in the early 1960s, developed by the Shanghai Wristwatch Factory, which created a small series of this type of watches. Hence the model Shanghai A623, which is considered as the first Chinese military use watch.

This limited series was delivered to the generals who were part of the People’s Liberation Army. According to historical records, Li De Sheng (李德生) and Xiao Ke (肖克) were possessors of this watch, as well as the Chinese Prime Minister Zhou En Lai (周恩来).

These were timepieces that were only delivered to people with political and military weight in China, characters who were part of important events.

In fact, one of the most representative anecdotes of Chinese watches is their presence in the test explosion of the first Chinese nuclear device in 1964, a crucial event within the history of humanity.

➤ The first chronograph used by the air force

Another historic factory, the Tianjin Watch Factory, received the order in 1962 to manufacture the first wrist chronograph, one of the precursors of Chinese watchmaking. It was a demanding project, for which 32 sample watches were made in the period of a year.

Chinese watch Seagull 1963

Two years passed until in 1964 the official production of the “304” series began, which underwent harsh temperature, altitude, impact, water resistance, and magnetic field tests.

The result of those tests and modifications was the Tianjin 1963 Air Force Chronograph Watch, also known as Seagull 1963, the first chronograph entirely designed and manufactured in China.

1400 copies were made, under the authorization of 21 government agencies. The production costs were high and that prevented a new series from being manufactured. Some sources indicate that the final figure of this chronograph was 2000 pieces.

By 1969, the Central Military Commission commissioned the Shanghai Wristwatch Factory to develop the military watches “144” in versions of 29 rubies (SS2) and 24 rubies (SS4), considered luxury items and only delivered to regimental chiefs and division generals.

As a curiosity, they had an approximate cost of 240 RMB, about 35 US dollars of the time. 30,000 were produced, being the largest batch of Chinese watches to date.

✚ Best Chinese Watches Brands 2024

The first Chinese watches were developed due to military needs, but subsequently Chinese watchmaking advanced to the global commercialization of parts for most major watchmaking firms.

Currently, although China continues to supply components to other countries, some of these factories have begun to manufacture their own brands, in some cases producing quality watches that deserve to be mentioned.

Next, we will learn a little more about the different Chinese watches brands, their history, development and current market share.

➤ Steeldive

Chinese Watch Steeldive 1970
Steeldive is a Chinese watches brand well known for its diver-style designs, many of which resemble iconic Seiko watches, and some of them are no longer manufactured.

Many even use Japanese mechanisms from Seiko’s own subsidiary, SII (Seiko Instruments INC). This, combined with their low cost, makes them very attractive to Chinese watch collectors.

Below these lines, you can see one of the most popular Steeldive watches built entirely of steel, with a sapphire crystal and a reliable NH35 from Seiko Instruments.

➤ Addiesdive

Addiesdive 1970 Watch

Addiesdive belongs to the same business conglomerate as Steeldive and manufactures the same watch models, but they usually have a slightly lower price.

It is curious because all the components are identical and even the presentation is the same. The only thing that changes in Addiesdive watches is the brand and logos.

Therefore, if this detail does not bother you, it can be a good way to get the same watch for a few euros less.

Tandorio Watches is one of the Chinese watches brands that has gained the most popularity in recent months due to its high-quality features and competitive prices.

Some of its models resemble Steeldive watches in terms of design and materials, but with lower prices. They still also use sapphire glass, stainless steel cases, and Japanese automatic movements.

The brand is owned by Guangzhou Sebo Trading Co., Ltd., which also owns Matelion, Corgeut, and Parnis. They offer varied customization options and are available in a mid-range price bracket.

Burei watches are very popular in major online stores, where they garner a large number of positive reviews, but what many do not know is that they are also a Chinese brand.

This is achieved thanks to their fine watches with a Swiss aesthetic, for which they use quality materials such as stainless steel and the best thing is that they do it at an affordable price.

Burei also manufactures mechanical watches under the same philosophy of quality, some even with Seiko movements, which is a guarantee of good operation.

The Loreo watches often have features well above their price such as sapphire crystals and Seagull and even Miyota movements in some models.

➤ Carnival

Carnival watches are known for using tritium to illuminate their dials, something not seen in other Chinese brands.

Tritium is a material that emits constant light, so when properly encapsulated in the hour markers, it can illuminate the dial for several years.

That’s why they are slightly more expensive, although they are still affordable compared to other well-known Chinese watches brands.

Feice has revolutionized the market by bringing a fresh perspective to Chinese watchmaking. Since its launch in 2009, the brand’s main goal has been to change the negative perception often associated with Chinese watches brands.

Feice watches stand out primarily for their Bauhaus style, which characterizes all of their designs, but also for their high-quality construction that rivals brands from other countries.

It’s not uncommon to see sapphire crystals protecting the dials of these watches or high-end Seagull movements inside. However, their prices are slightly higher than those of other Chinese brands.

All watches feature a marine-grade 316L stainless steel case, the same material used by brands like Omega.

The prices of their collections are not as affordable as those of other Chinese brands, but their features are quite in line with the price.

The Pagani Design watches feature hardlex crystal and are generally sporty models with chronographs, although they offer the possibility to choose between leather or metal straps for increased personalization.

Their designs are “inspired by” or pay homage to established brands like Tag Heuer and Festina, but they are much less known as they are a fairly young brand. They use 316L stainless steel for both the case and straps.

Naviforce watches is a young brand founded in 2012. Their philosophy is to uphold freedom and individuality and make durable and affordable watches accessible to men worldwide. Hence the inscription on their case (“for dream”).

  • Quartz Collection, with quartz movement
  • Multifunction Collection with chronograph and date
  • Multifunction Collection with digital display and simple quartz movement

They use the same materials as well-known brands in the market but charge much less. However, like many watches in their price segment, they have synthetic PU straps as well as higher-quality ones depending on the model.

➤ Curren

Curren Chinese Watch
The Curren watches target a completely different segment than the previous ones. All those people who prefer watches with more careful details and artisanal techniques will prefer Chinese watches from this brand.

Each design is assembled with quality materials and special attention to detail, and the components undergo rigorous quality control, making this brand one of the best in current Chinese watchmaking.

There is also a curious story behind the brand, although it is not known for certain whether it is real or a marketing creation. You can find more information about it here.

They even have models powered by Swiss Sellita-type mechanisms, although obviously they are much more expensive than the rest of the brands from the Far East.

According to their website, they don’t manufacture in China, but the brand is actually owned by Shenzhen XingZhen Industrial Co., Ltd., so this information is somewhat doubtful.

➤ Megir

Megir Watch

Something interesting happens with this brand, and that is that Megir watches adopt characteristics that are usually seen in higher-budget watches.

It is one of the best Chinese watches brands precisely because it imitates the quality of products from recognized brands such as Omega and Fossil.

Their watches are generally water-resistant, equipped with Japanese quartz movements, and a silicone strap that makes them versatile, as well as more resistant to use and comfortable on the wrist.

This is a highly accepted product in countries like Spain due to its affordability and quality, in addition to the fact that its features make it look like watches from top brands at a fraction of their cost.

➤ Guanqin

Guanqin Watch
Guanqin stands out as one of the few Chinese watches brands that use sapphire crystal and genuine leather in their designs. However, they are also among the most expensive on this list.

One of the best-selling Guanqin watches from the brand is the GJ16106 model, launched in 2016. It is made with polished 316L stainless steel, sapphire crystal, and a steel or leather strap, which sets it apart from other Asian watch brands.

This particular model is a clear homage to the Nomos Lambda, although in a discreet way, as it does not become a perfect copy of it.

➤ André Belfort

André Belfort Watch
The philosophy of this brand is perfection, which has allowed André Belfort to compete with Swiss watchmaking.

It is a brand that prefers and appreciates artisan work, and that is why its team of engineers and watchmakers work hard to develop cutting-edge models that use technology without losing elegance and sophistication.

Although their website suggests that they are watches manufactured in Switzerland, they are actually Chinese-made watches. However, this does not diminish their quality, as they are high-end automatic watches that usually include quality materials such as sapphire crystal.

Now, like other Chinese watches brands, their prices are often inflated. It is very common to see them for thousands of euros when their real value is infinitely lower, so it is very important to research thoroughly before purchasing them.
