Review of the Sewor 065 Automatic Watch

Updated on November 2, 2019

Walter Shillington is an avid collector of mechanical watches. His reviews focus on inexpensive but often intriguing Chinese timepieces.

Occasionally, I will examine offerings from AliExpress, DhGate, and Wish, searching for an intriguing timepiece that won’t set me back a lot of money.

Last month I came across a rectangularly shaped automatic from Sewor. Although attached to a cheap strap, it appeared to be a decent watch. I took the plunge, paying $21.00 to a merchant on AliExpress and waiting patiently for it to arrive.

Description

The Sewor automatic weighs in at 72 grams (2.56 ounces). It is 33 millimeters wide and 45 millimeters from lug to lug. At 14 millimeters, this timepiece is chunkier than many that I have previously reviewed.

This watch’s Chinese-manufactured movement is enclosed within a shiny, gold-colored stainless-steel case. The crystal is composed of glass, and four tiny screws secure the caseback.

Gold colored Roman numerals are superimposed onto a black dial. At the three o’clock position, a small window displays the date.

Sewor equipped this watch with a 24-millimeter-wide PU leather strap.

The Manufacturer

Sewor was trademarked in 2016 by Sisi Huang of Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. This company markets an impressive variety of inexpensive mechanical timepieces.

Visual Appeal

A well-designed dial and rectangular, gold-colored case suggest this Sewor is a far more expensive timepiece that it is. I especially like the use of large golden Roman numerals to mark each hour.

This watch’s caseback includes a round glass window, allowing its owner to view the movement.

While the crocodile patterned strap fits well with the overall design, its silver buckle spoils the effect.

Durability

Twenty-one dollars is a crucial price point for Chinese watch manufacturers. In this range, factories can provide more than just a basic timepiece. Their offerings might include a stainless-steel band, extra functions, or, as in this case, a mechanical movement.

The stainless-steel case is electroplated to provide a shiny gold coloring. It looks great but be aware that, over time, wear and tear will eventually degrade the coating and the silver stainless steel beneath will be revealed.

I especially liked the caseback which is held in place by four tiny screws. Unlike most casebacks, this one can easily be removed and replaced.

An automatic movement is used to power the Sewor 065. Adjustments to the time and date were made smoothly and without difficulties. The overall mechanism runs well but will probably not enjoy the lifespan of its more expensive brethren.

Sewor equipped this watch with a strap composed of PU leather. PU leather is formed from inner splits of hide, which have been covered with polyurethane. While this material appears leather-like, it is not as durable. If you wear this watch every day, plan to replace the strap within a few months.

Accuracy

During my review period, the date window correctly displayed each day of the month.

I tested the accuracy of the Sewer automatic for three days. During this time, it gained an average of one minute every 24 hours. This is considered reasonable for a timepiece in the 20-dollar price range.

Reserve power worked out to 39 hours.

Overall Assessment

This watch looks great, includes a date feature, and is powered by an automatic movement. Provided the purchaser is willing to replace the strap with one of decent quality, the Sewer 065 represents real value. Keep in mind, however, that the lifespan of a timepiece of this type is one to two years.

Watch manufacturers attempt to increase sales by offering features that potential purchasers value. In this case, Sewor provided a date display. The following poll is designed to determine which features my readers prefer.
