the other brands i mentioned are mushroom brands thanks for the info. however joshua & sons i dont think are a mushroom brand , since they are sold in actual physical jewelry and department stores . and their webpage does not list MSRP pricing , just info on styles.

Sorry to disapoint you! I googled them, but did not find the actual factory site. Only sellers, the watches are in most cases "reduced" 45-75%. And for that price, only the chinese can make a watch and have some profit!. But, who knows, maybe you will get meny ears of service from it! I guess most Chinese wear chinese watches..... And they are happy with them! But do not forget to check the actual time each morning against the height of the sun! (Sorry, a bad joke) I think the name is mis spelled. Should be Jon Hua & Sons! (even worse joke, double sorry!)

I think all we men share the same problem. The problem is that women have no humor! BTW, have you ever listened (in secret) to an all women discussion? Scary!
I just finished taking apart a chinese watch (£9.99 at Lidl in UK, approx US$ 20). Incredibly small bits and screws and such! I would love to see them being made.

good article about bluring the lines between women's and mens watches, in with JOSHUA & SONS watches are mentioned, saying they are a British owned watch company.

still researching.... however information is not easily forthcoming
Does it make a difference if they are owned by a British company, or Swiss, or German, or Italian - they are mushroom anyway.

Have a look at millionsmart.com and you´ll find the source for lots of mushrooms.

But hey - if you get one and it works, it looks nice and is a lot of watch compared to what $80 will get you at the watch store at the mall!
