  • How to Spot A Genuine Emporio Armani AR2434 By Checking its Movement

    Hi guys,

    When purchasing a watch, we wanna make sure we are getting the best price and the genuine product at the same time. Sometimes it is extremely hard to tell coz of all the marketing and advertising from different sellers. The least thing you want to do is to purchase a fake watch with hundreds of dollars

    If you are looking for purchasing an Emporio Armani black chronograph watch AR2434 from Watchdepots.com. I want to ensure you that you are purchasing a genuine watch. I am here today to show you the inside movement of this Armani watch with detail pictures just to give you a clear idea what you are getting. So you know exactly what you will get from your purchase and you will not be shocked next time when you open the watch case to replace the battery :)

    To start off, I think you need to know that 99.99% of Emporio Armani watches use Japanese movement and they are assembled in China. Pls do not think it as a sign a poor quality. Anyone who owns an Armani timepiece will definitely tell you that EA have great quality watches for a very good price. They are a fashion brand so their watches not only emphaize on its quality but also on its look.
    So when you see an Amarni watch with a non Japanese movement inside. You can say with 100% certainly it is a fake watch.

    For this demonstration, we use Pin Pen, Two End Hammer, Snap-Off Blades.

    The first step is to break the watch band by taking out the first link connecting the watch clasp to the band. You can use the Two End Hammer and Pin Pen. It should look like this when it is done.

    Then we need to gouge open the watch case with Two End Hammer, Snap-Off Blades.

    Once the case is opened, you will see the movement:
             
    ar2434backcase              ar2434-movement

    So now you can see the watch uses Japanese Movement as shown in image.
    The model numner is: VD53B2. You can purchase the watch movement from us, Japnese Movement S110 No Jewels VD53B2 as well.
    The inprint in the watch movement goes:
    "S11O No Jewels Japan VD53B2"
    Those words are very important coz it tells you where is made and the model number of the movement. It cannot be faked due to the fact that it is engraved into the movement cases. Movement manufactuerers put those on when the movment is made. It is like the engine number of a car.

    So now you know this is a genuine Armani Watch with Japanese Movement.
    Next thing to do is to close the watch case, using the compressing tool and the watch is good to go.

    Hope you guys learned more about AR2434 watch today. You can now check this watch yourself to see if you have purchased the genuine one.

    Thank you for reading my post. I will see you guys soon.

  • 3 Best Ways to Open a Watch Case

    3 Best Ways to Open a Watch Case

    Hi everyone,

    Today I will be showing 3 best ways I found so far for opening watch cases.

    1. For all screw open watch cases.

    Using Rubber Ball

    The best tool here is the rubber ball. It is light, easy to grasp and most importantly does not leave marks on the watch case.

    When using this ball, you need to make sure that you press the ball firmly against the watch case. Hold the watch in the way that the crown is facing you and the crown sits against the thumb muscle. Use all your fingers to fixate the watch case.

    It is very important that the watch case is fixed while you are twisting the ball otherwise it make cause some scratches on the case, depending on its quality.

    2. Case Opener for screw open watches

    Those case openers are the second best option for opening watch cases. The tri-hand ones are great for opening all kind of watch sizes, large or small; the two hand ones are great for small, medium sizes. They are not fitted for large watch sizes.

    The tip for using case opener is make sure you adjust the teeth to the correct sizes of your watch and make sure it does fit in tightly. The result of opposite situation is that you will make a deep scratch on the case around the dents when trying to turn.

    3. For all the press-in cases

    Using Hammer & Blade 1 hammer-blade-1

    I found it is much easier, with minimum damages to the case, when using a blade and hammer to gouge.  I always use some plastic to cover the blade before fitting it onto the case. It helps to reduce the friction. It will be less likely to cause any scratches.

    It is absolutely essential you put the blade in parallel to the watch glass, as parallel as possible, when gouge the case. The blade is inserted at the 3 o' clock position of the watch, it is a rule for about 99.99% of the watches and you will find many watches have a mark at 3 o'clock to indicate. Hit the blade lightly each time. You try to push the blade into the gap and gouge, you are not wanting any marks on the case.

    Ok, thanks for reading my tips and I hope they can help with your watch. Please do not hesitate to leave me comments if you have different opinions or have something want to share with us.
