    Swiss Watches

    I remember reading an article many years ago that compared the innards
    of several watches.  There was only one manufacturer (Seiko) that
    compared very favorably to a well known Swiss watch (Rolex).  The
    comparison was partially based on close up photography of the inner
    mechanical workings of the watches.  The machining and polishing of
    parts in both watches were beautiful.  I don't remember the other
    watches mentioned in the article but they were rather crude looking
    under magnification.
    I also remember using a Rolex to set a device within a small window (10
    or so seconds) for month on end.  It was almost impossible beyond a few
    days.  My friend used a Seiko (also mechanical) and he had much, much
    better results.  I became very aware that price does not necessarily
    mean better performance or quality.
