The Swiss watch brand Arnold & Son builds all its own movements and tools in-house and from scratch. Each timepiece is a painstaking work of art that takes hours to come to life.

This is the reason why Swiss Watches are very expensive and the best quality, and this is why Chinese and American people who lack organizational and patience skills can never do precision mechanical watches.
I happen to know that luxury brand watches are not made in a painstaking way - CCT machines just spit out the ready made parts ad infinitum. The painstaking part is increasing the value of the brand by clever marketing, including the use of a name cynically purloined from a famous English chronometer maker from the past.
Even crazier to think of all the complications that some watches have. Like the IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calender, which keeps track of the time, day, date, month, and year, and has a power reserve and moon phase. Not to mention it accounts for months that have 30 or 31 days, and accounts for leap years, all done mechanically. Or the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Grand Complication which has all of that and a split second chronograph, all for the low price of roughly $700,000.
I see why the price tags of some of these watches is 100k. Totally worth it if you're able to spend money on the best of the best. These kinds of watches aren't for your everyday plebs but more for people who make like 7 figures and more a year. .
I thought this was gonna be some bullshit cash grab video, but this is actually a respectable process (unlike that "high end" speaker assembly video). It actually takes a lot of time, effort and nice materials to build these. Is it worth $30,000 for one of these? Probably not that much. But it's impressive nonetheless.
This is as honest and transparent a video of how a high end watch is actually made. Basically it is made industrially, and then hand finished with electric tools, and finally extensively tested. But, no it is not made by a 5th generation Swiss Master Craftsman high in the Swiss Alps painstakingly hand crafting every component like they did 200 years ago.
I have just never understood why people buy these things. I am constantly banging my left hand against things all day. by the time my Timex reaches its end, it looks like it's been through 5 world wars. I want to spend as little money as possible.
I love my Seiko's, boluvas and citizens. I love Japanese watches because all parts are made in house and are affordable for the common people. As gorgeous as Swizz watches are, you have to be careful were the parts come from (some times China). Just assembled in Switzerland. These look legit though

The standard for COSC certification for a mechanical movement and one that is quartz are light years apart. For instance, a mechanical movement will earn certification with a -4 to +6 second per day variance while quartz is required to keep time within 10 seconds PER YEAR. I love both types and they do have their pros and cons.
Yes it is, plenty of people with parkinsons make fun of their own handicap... In fact plenty of people with handicaps make fun of their handicaps.
Same way i make fun of my autism sometimes. xD
This joke was rather harmless, grow up. : /
If people weren't allowed to laugh at their disabilities and handicaps, the world-wide suicide rate would probably be exponentially higher than it is today... Embrace humor, it is a treatment for depression. :)
Painted Pony well because the mechanism uses something called pallet fork that got two pallet with different surface thus when the escape wheel hits it, the sound that was caused by the teeth hitting those pallet would be different/distinctive thus the tick-tack.... while the quartz watch just simply goes ticks-ticks.
And fyi, that watch with ticking seconds hand is a mechanical watch with a dead-beat mechanism, the inspiration behind why quartz watch ticks instead of sweeping smoothly across the dial while this mechanism already around from 19th century
i bet u are just a random kid who doesn't understand what art really is. watches are not for functionality or other useless shit, they are made to look good on you, be elegant. i will never use an iwatch on me for some dinner with a lady, it looks like a peace of crap for kids.
Rob 351 that's what I'm talking about....
I got an omega c-shape constellation from 64, and it's still my daily watch.
And more, even swiss electronic/quartz based watches produced around last 70es to 80es aren't survived anymore due to discontinued parts and things.... And I suppose it would be the same with iWatch as we currently got the technology to provide and produced those vintage electronic watches but it's not the case....
I ruined one of my Rolex watches' because I let some humidity in and it rusted up the movement. It looked so terrible when the Jeweler opened her up (it's a dam Submariner too). I just got another one. Thank goodness for being wealthy; these peasants don't understand art.
Of course it will be shitty if you pay 50 dollars for it... Now if you pay 400-600USD for a well made fake you'll get a lot more for your money because its not put together by children in some dirty garage but by people who earn a decent living off it and so have an incentive to make a quality product. Look up the Noob factory V7 Submariner for example, its arguably the best Rolex clone out there. Its available with either one of these clone movements: SA3135/3130, the A3135, and the A2836.
I paid $50 for a "replica" Rolex once... Don't do it. I had to re-adjust constantly because it would lose minutes over just a couple weeks, the finish wore off, the face got scratched to hell because it wasn't real sapphire, and the band fell apart. And this was just from wearing it every now and then over a 6 month period. If you want a nice mechanical watch, save up a bit and buy something real that's in your price range. I ended up buying a $400 Bulova watch on special for $250 and it's perfect. I wear it just about every day, minus the days where I'm gonna be getting greasy or muddy, and it still looks brand new. I always get compliments for it, and I know from experience that women are instantly more attracted to a man with an expensive looking watch.
