When buying an Akribos watch, you have to remember that the “original” prices of the watch are over-inflated to make it seem like the price you’re actually paying is a good deal. The watches usually aren’t worth more than about $300, with a few exceptions, and you usually don’t pay more than that. These watches can have these low prices because they are made in China. The parts they use and the designs for their watches are Swiss, but they are made in China, so every once in a while, you may get a dud watch.
Overall, the quality of their watches is great for the price that you pay for them. They are beautiful and keep time well and, with the exception of the occasional dud, they will last a long time and shouldn’t break too easily unless they are dropped or over-wound.
If you need help with fixing your watch, trust a professional.
