Are the watches battery run swiss movement or are they actually a real watch with gears n shit? Cause if they're swiss movement, they're a rip. If it runs on real gears, then the price is actually a pretty good deal.

Know1edge makes HIGH quality watches. My MHI one has stood the test of time. The band wore out and I took it too a watchstore and asked them about the watch itself and they vouched for the quality.

"stainless"

Anyone know if any past goodies will be available at the Crooks store opening? Maybe some G.O.O.D. tees and stuff like that?

swiss movement watches = garbage

for this price u can get a similiar watch with atleast a carat of diamonds on it. That will hold its value because of the diamonds.

When Crooks the brand goes the way of the dinosauer, and I see that happening soon seeing as how big they're starting to get... these watches will be worth toilet paper.

Theres a difference between a watch being "swiss made" and "swiss movement"

Things get very technical from here on out, and a real watch collector can feel free to jump in at any time and correct me as Im goin on what I learned working in a jewlery store four years ago.

All watches are labeled swiss movement on the back. Looking at my Aquamaster it's got the classic swiss movement on the back too. But its not, it's Japanese movement with a few parts imported from Switzerland, which is what 90% of watches with the label swiss movement are.

Breitling, Rolex etc pride themselves on being "swiss made" watches, meening every last gear inside them is of swiss design.

Heres some info pasted from the web:

“It is not generally known that quite a few Swiss companies have watches assembled in China for export to North America, Asia and even Europe, where the brand name is more important that the “Swiss made” label. Such watches may consist of a Chinese case and a Chinese crystal, a Taiwan-made dial and metal bracelet and Japanese hands. If the movement is to be considered Swiss, 51% of its value must be Swiss and at least the last wheel must be added in Switzerland. Swiss watch brands without the “Swiss made” label are usually equipped with a Japanese movement. The “Swiss parts” label means that the movement is assembled in Asia using kits consisting at least partially of Swiss made components.”


From what I know, these (crooks) watches are swiss movement, and use a quatrz battery. Basically, they're poo....They are NOT swiss made watches like Breitling etc.

None the less its a dope watch might be a lil pricey but nowadays people spend 40-50 bucks on a tee and hundreds on hoodies so might as well get a limited watch.

Peace & Blessings

But that was before the $350.00 pricetag.

If it were only like $200.00 it'd already be around my wrist. I still haven't completely decided against it, though. We'll see.
