    Peter Simon - "A swiss chrono for under 150, unheard of"

    he must have forgotten he's been selling Swiss Military hanowa chronos for under 150


    Ps

    Would like to admit a mistake in an earlier post, I said they were showing a picture of the guy that started the CCCP brand, actually the picture they were showing is the person (Aleksandr Aleksandrov, mathematician) who was the inspiration for one of the watch designs and the watch was named after him too. Despite this confusion, the post still is accurate in that they are claiming CCCP started in 1924, when the person (Alexander Shorokhov) that started the brand wasn't born till 1960.

    A funny thing about Ideal world watch shows, and I've been watching them for nearly two years now, is the different Countries mentioned during these shows with their connection to various brands, these Countries are mention numerous times during the shows, over many shows.
    We have had:-

    America
    Britain
    Germany
    Italy
    Lithuania
    Russia
    Switzerland

    Yet one Country has never ever been mentioned, which is kinda strange as the bulk of the watches sold on Ideal World, are either wholly made there or start their journey there before being finished elsewhere (so that it can be claimed to be made there). Some of those brands that have watches originating in this mysterious country are:-

    Ballast
    Ben Sherman
    CCCP
    Cerruti
    Constantin Weisz
    DeLorean
    Emporio Armani
    Green Time
    Heritor
    James McCabe
    Lucien Piccard
    MG
    Police
    Pramzius
    Swan & Edgar
    Swiss Eagle
    Swiss Legend
    Thomas Earnshaw
    Timberland

    Considering how big a part this Country plays in Ideal world's watch ctalogue, why do they never mention CHINA.
