On July 4, 2014, the “Beijing Watch 2014 Shenzhen Exhibition New Product Release Appreciation Conference” event jointly organized by the Watch House Forum and Beijing Watch Factory was successfully held. The event was held at the Beijing Watch Factory on Dongguan Road, Changping. The watch factory sits north to the south and stands beside the mountains and the water. The quiet location provides an excellent environment for watchmaking. The bricks and tiles here seem to be nimble and elegant because they have been bathed by the watchmaker.

Workers in a busy job
Numerous CNC machine tools in the watch factory’s workshop are constantly running at high speeds, from the main board of the movement to the small screws, all produced by the factory itself. Workers meticulously hand-made clocks, day after day. We also witnessed the assembly process of the watchmaker’s dual-axis three-dimensional tourbillon movement with hundreds of parts, all of which were completed by hand. The master told us that it takes about a month to complete such a movement. The patience of the producer, this visit made us truly experience the exquisite craftsmanship of Beijing watches.
