You can order watch crystals now and reap the benefits of these signature products before the expected increase in demand. When you delay and order later in a supplier-seller market, you may lose out on securing stock and maximizing savings where you can, especially when high-traffic fiscal quarters are just ahead.

Take advantage of this buyer’s market. Consider these strategies to ensure you have secured these high-quality tuning fork crystals for use in your production:

  • For customers that require a reliable inventory of 3.2 mm x 1.50 mm 32.768 kHz crystals, securing inventory now will help you save in the long run. Take advantage of volume buying power by considering your current projects, as well as future projects you are planning down the road.
  • Inventory for this product is on hand now, however, once stock is allocated, ECS Inc. will begin building to order to satisfy new demand requests. Customers may be subject to extended lead times. Ordering now will prevent you from risking lead time production delays and avoid expediting fees down the road. Avoid cutting into costs and manage your inventory more efficiently by securing available quartz tuning forks under current conditions.
  • This is a good time to work with one of our authorized distribution partners to buy in volume and arrange a release schedule to receive your quartz tuning forks as you need them. The potential to make a large blanket purchase for parts now will be exceptionally beneficial to capture inventory at the current price.

The Downsides of Waiting to Order Tuning Fork Crystals

Customers who miss out on stocking up during a buyer’s market may discover they require parts that are built to order and subject to lead time. This dilemma may cause production planners to bring in engineering resources to approve a second source or test alternative parts. Hastily made product changes or stock grabs, can result in more problematic repercussions, such as performance failures or counterfeit quartz tuning forks.

Be aware of unauthorized sellers that could be promoting low-cost counterfeit 32.768 kHz tuning forks that may not truly be ECS Inc. components. ECS Inc. provides the best-performing quartz tuning forks on the market that are quality-tested and function as advertised.

Do not risk receiving defective parts or giving up access to engineering support and a warranty by purchasing outside of ECS Inc.’s list of authorized distributors. Purchase from ECS Inc. now, so you will not have to debate whether it is worth the risk to buy low-cost 32.768 kHz tuning forks from unknown manufacturers down the road.
