HI everybody,
I've just found TAUCHMEISTER 1937 Model T0130 to be exactly identical to an Anne Kaye's watch (first 2 thumbnails)

The same happens with TAUCHMEISTER T0131 and another AK's, (second 2 thumbnails)

and the same happens with lots of models of the two brands.
It's evident that the two brands have an OEM/ODM in common...

Can anybody help trying to understand who is the Hong Kong/Chinese manufacturer for these watches???

Urgent help needed!!!!!!!!
Thanks in Advance

Probably millionsmart but the "normal customer" has no access to the OEM site :roll:.

You may re-post on out Chinese Watches Forum. Tauchmeister only has a German name and german seller, we call it "germasian". Other brands out of the same stable: Aeromatic1912.

I think Mike is correct they are most likely products of Millionsmart with dials
printed with the "manufacturers" labels. A 3 dial Valjoux clone branded as Aeromatic appears on the Millionsmart website as a generic Professional chrono.

Does that make these watches less desirable? They do offer some very cool designs.

I've just bought a Tauchmeister, automatic, square like Bell and Ross, but naked stainless with a steel cap on the crown. (Sorry, but my 14 yr old hasn't shown me how to do pics.) 1-way rotating bezel, luminous dial, strap in hefty leather. I've seen less robust brick privies.

It cost me £98-ish, and it's excellent value for money. Certainly Germ-Asian, but with proper Quality Control. Movement less smooth than my 28k beats ETA's, a lot smoother than my two Trias 99.99% pure Asians. But it's my first "Asian-ish" movement that has no "hacking" feature. Given that I've never worked out why a cheap-ish automatic would need to hack, I'm not bothered. Please break it to me gently if I should be...

Yea they all seem to be buying from the same off the shelf manufacturer. Nothing wrong with that really many do it. Left over cases and other parts from bigger brand watches. You see it every day really.
