This is a list of official manufacturer websites.
Of course, official is debatable.
Also manufacturer is debatable.
Some design team designs a watch, some factory builds watch pieces or the whole watch, someone assembles the watch, someone designs the packaging, the documentation, and “makes” a bunch, then someone resells those watches to other companies or to end customs.
Who is the manufacture? Who is the reseller? What does the customer do when they have the watch in their hands and wonder where they could find a manual for it. Search engines are worthless…
So, yes, given the above, his list is not 100% accurate.
A great “manufacturer’s website” should be a place where:
- New models can be seen.
- Old models could be looked up.
- There is a support section of some kind having things like: user manuals, FAQs, firmware to download, ways to contact support or at least a list of your support options, …
- News, customer relation bits, …
- Address, contact information
Unfortunately, not every company wants that level of support.
So, here are the ones I was able to find. Please add to this thread if you have a watch it has a website.
LOKMAT I cannt find one. It is NOT lokmat.com which is a newpaper site of some sort. PDF scanned the manual. Looked on the box. Box says “email@example.com”. https://evatmaster.com/en says “As a tax technology company, EVAT MASTER provides comprehensive solutions that reduce manual intervention, streamline business workflows, and optimize compliance procedures to help our customers achieve business and compliance success while keeping their costs in check.”. Nothing looked specific for LOKMAT. Probably just coordinates stuff shipped from Shenzhen. I emailed the contact for firmware/flashtools. Who thinks that will work.
OPPO www.oppo.com (Is this a FAW?)
Senbono mysenbono.com ?
So many more…
