When you source parts from online for example case movement and hands. can you claim it as being yours? Can you sell the piece on and claim it as your own brand? I’m new to this and don’t know please can you help?

Hi Henry    I can't see a problem there,  look at car manufacture. all the component parts are sourced  from makers and assembled in the factory and brand named. That is no different to what you advocate. In the end that's all you are doing.  How many watches out there are assembled the same way, Eubauches manufactured movements that are in so many watches under many brand names.

The most so called designer watches are utilizing this concept, sometimes there might be a pattern protection or a patent issue that has to be addressed before one slaps on a logo on things, I guess the larger manufacturers has a licensing agreement inplace, but as no logo products there is probably no problems.

Claim against whom? For your watch to be known and copied you would have to sell in the thousands. I whish you can get there first, then worry about imitations later.

Chinees manufacturers produce any of designs they are set up for, without you having to worry about brand ownership. You can name or desgn dials for your order at will.

So far as brand name,  you can register your brand or purchase any of the old abandoned brands cheap, though some have resurrected with advanced luxury mechanical pieces.  

Abandoned brands are just a title, no equipment, no know- how. Much depends on the target market, terretory, finances,advertisment, .....etc.

Lawyers bussy at international court of arbitration give consulation on legal matters starting with incoterms, all the way forward, back to the start.

I had to try this out and got to say it's not to bad. Tried with just a quartz the first run maybe an automatic next time..

    • Just as a curiousity here is the tools recommended by ETA the bearing tool and some others..
    • Thanks all but the price of the Horotec tool is a bit prohibitive... I have managed to free it with a very sharp piece of peg wood in one of the cut outs and push it round..The bearing is OK its just that the balance needs some work and you cant remove it with the rotor in place.
    • To remove the beaing you need a special tool but just to remove the rotor you just take of the three screws holding the automatic mechanism, turn it around and unscrew three small screws on the underside and the rotor gets loose.. Could take a couple of shots for you if you wish..
    • Blimey, I see what you mean. What you've got there would appear to be two French-made Framelac pin-levers, a movement maker about which very little seems to be recorded. I've attached an image from the Uhrforum.de of the jewelled-lever FR 304 for comparison of the bridge configuration (similar) and the shape of the balance cock (identical). 
    • Strange. And the setting lever is turned the right way up? Can't see on the picture.
