Good morning!

While I've acquired numerous mechanical watches, both manual and autowinding, of Chinese manufacture and have been pretty happy with my acquisitions, nevertheless there have been a few snafus along the way, which is alright, especially considering the relatively low price of the watches.

That said, when I took one in for a repair after dropping the watch, the folks who got it running well again told me that the simpler movements coming from China/Hong Kong were alright, but that although some automatic chronograph movements were appearing and they suggested that if I were to get one to simply enjoy the watch until something broke, and then after that to simply chuck it in the trash. They told me that they had repaired a few of them and after the watches came back to be re-repaired after a failure that they decided to no longer work on them. The reason, they said, is due to the use of metals for some of the parts which are not appropriate for the part, leading to failure. As they guarantee their work for 1 year, it became a losing proposition for them as the watches came back and they had to fix them at no charge.

Here's my question: Are there any reasonably reliable automatic chronograph movements coming from China that are available, and how reasonably priced are they? Any suggestions?

Thanks.
