Reply to "Fine Watches"

Haggis, it might be helpful to understand what you are looking for in a watch to offer better options, if that makes sense.

If one is looking for highly accurate watches and I mean highly, highly jeweled, high frequency quartz cannot be beat with any mechanical watch, period. An example is the Grand Seiko ( grow their own quartz) 9F movement which is within 5 seconds per year. Many have tested out at +/- one second per year. Girard Perregaux caliber 350 quartz is an amazing 32,768 hertz ( vibrations per second) will also perform within one second per year.

High end quartz is also thermo-compensating to eliminate the temperature fluctuations that occur in standard quartz watches just as an example.

None of this matters to 99% of people, but something tells me you like specifics. Big Grin I currently own 19 watches ( planning on reducing) with 17 mechanical. If you prefer mechanical, the wants and desires of your watch selection will be critical.

I will be glad to help and offer opinions if you like, but don't want to bore with details also.
