It does. Had 2 Seiko Samurais made in "somewhere" and both were inaccurate : one was gaining 31s a day, another 27s. Seiko support said it is within limits and declined a calibration. Bought same Seiko Samurai but this time Made in Japan. And you know what? This one was so accurate in time keeping- +1s in two days. This is just one example, but have too many to list.
Panasonic’s arc is made in Japan anyway. It’s a great razor. Is made in China an issue for a product anyway? The glass in a Rolls Royce is made in China. The race or nationality of a person working in a factory bears no resemblance to the product quality.
LOL! Forget Panasonic- absolute garbage;too big shaving head to shave around nose and upper lip. Made in China Braun is smaller and easier in hand, shaves better and made in Germany! But go from S7, as others say.
Thanks for the feedback. I have a series 3 too and it’s garbage.

Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver for Men with Precision Beard Trimmer, Wet and Dry
First Series 3 and now Series 5 goes down hill. I have moved on to Philips.
The plus doesn't sound like much of a positive after all the negatives (lol) (lol) (lol) (y) (y)
Noooo don't touch it! I've had two of these, both started letting water in less then a year old and becoming intermittent then stopped working. Anything more than a days growth and they keep snagging (ouch!). Oh and the middle blade feels like it's going to cut your top lip so you either have to lock the head in place or hold it manually. On the plus it feels solid and heavy with a good battery life.
Never miss a 'Braun Series 5' deal again!

I later agreed with you if you actually read the thread
Sigh.....upset you by saying an alternative view ? Thin skinned
Read my comment above keyboard warrior :)
For this particular model ? And from how far back is "for years" ? Why not check the reviews on Amazon ? More recent, perhaps ? Edit: Ive bought the thing myself - it can always be sent back if its as poor as so many of the reviews say
I picked up the 5030 model from Argos a few months ago for the same price as this one and mine has been brilliant. Very disappointing if the quality has dropped on the newer models.
You can separate the reviews at the bottom. It’s a bit hidden but it comes under the format drop down box. Amazon needs to have a look at how user friendly their site is I think. Hopefully this link will work for you.

I think this is a new model. Amazon is annoying because it lumps reviews together for several different models
About time they came close to recent Argos price reductions on Braun shavers.

What’s the best trimmer/shaver for below the belt region
One major problem with Braun is, they don't supply UK plug.
I've had this shaver for years, highly recommended, especially at this price. I've replaced the foil 3 times, so the shaver must be 7-8 years old and not missed a beat. Ordering one of these as a back up. Not seen for less tjan £70 for ages.

Ordered - great price and beats anything I have seen on Amazon for this. I agree that the models with cleaning units are just another moneyspinner for the manufacturer so did not spend the extra 20 quid.
Seems like an excuse to give more money to Braun for not a lot of benefit to me. I've survived a long time without a shaver cleaning station ;)
For £20 more you can have the 5195CC with the cleaning station. If you like a hygienic and clean smelling shaver this is worth the extra.
I 2nd that on the basis (for me) stubble growth ain't longer than 2 days - beyond this it struggles for which I use a Philips One Shave for longer hair. Series 3 Proskin gives great close shave for a clean shave look without the razor burn and gentle on sensitive skin. Although I must go against the grain to achieve a close shave contrary to instructions which advise to go from a top downwards directions - I go bottom upwards. Added bonus is that it can be used 'wet' and the battery lasts for several weeks!
This. Panasonic LV65 is among the very best shavers.way better than this and better than Braun series 7.
I bought a Series 3 shaver and so far have been impressed.
Would def agree that you should choose series 7 (or series 9 for heavy growth).
Rrp is insane. More than double what it actuall is.

Yeah, I only ever go to Accy if I want the Tesco to be honest! I will have a trek over at some point, I don't work too far, so I am that way a fair bit and we're familiar with most of the town from living there. Blackburn has improved, grew up here and moved back last year. Same as anywhere I guess - some areas are alright and some are a bit plop. Always good to come across some local folk on here though (y)
Burnley is pretty decent too. Preston for me is too spread out. I live between Blackburn and Accrington, Accrington is terrible, more closed shops than open.
Yeah, it's better than it was 10-15 years ago - the Cathedral area is really nice these days. I lived in Burnley for a few years, but genuinely never ventured into the town centre. Not intentionally, we'd always travel to Blackburn or Preston for town centre shopping :)
There's some decent shops in the shopping centre.
Best shopping centre in East Lancs ;)
