Standards are very important to the development of an industry. Several days ago, a meeting on horologe standard, i.e. the National Horologe StandardizationTechnology Committee Meeting was held in Yiwu.
Having developed for over 20 years, Yiwu's industry of clocks and watches is now in a considerable scale and the yearly production value is about 2.3 billion yuan. About 80% of the products are exported to regions like Europe, America, the Middle East and the Southeast Asia. Yiwu's sales volume of timekeeping products such as electronic watch, quartz clock and watch movement has exceeded many places including Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Fujian. China's famous brands like EBOHR, COMPAS,BEIJIXING,URANUS have exclusive distribution and general agents in YIwu. Yiwu watch is establishing itself as the export base of national quartz clocks. So far as standardization is concerned, Yiwu's horologe guild has already required its members to produce watches and clocks referring to the national standard since last year. The auartz clock enterprises with the most sales have carried out the Standard of Indicating Quartz Clock Movement of Yiwu Watch Industry. The fast development of Yiwu market and the successive annual progressive growth of horologe sales are particularly concerned by men of timepiece.
