Are the days of traditional mechanical watches and craftsmanship winding down? I mean let's face it, a high percentage of sub $5k watches use purchased movements from Swatch that can't cost much more than $100.

Will the younger generation continue to prize the simple elegance in a single function mechanical piece of jewelry?

I'm interested in the Apple Watch, I've been in the market for a fitness bracelet. The good ones go for $150-$200 with all the features I would want (heart rate without a strap, certain splash proofness, sapphire crystal etc..)
The Apple Watch will do all that and then some.
I would rather wait even if its extra $$
Its on my wish list for my BDay !!

I still haven't given up on my wanting a Panerai.... One day !!
