it would probably help if you personalized it, why do you want to know? Got an imminent purchase?
Perhaps two watches to compare?
Looks like chese vs shushi thread

Side note, it's been a year since I purchased my second favorite watch, an Aerospace. It's still dead on. Hard to beat.
All this from a diehard mechanical fan....
Sorry didn't mean to start anything like that. Let's just forget I even asked.:oops:
This brings up an interesting question. With mechanical watches swiss made commands a high premium due to claims about higher quality and accuracy.
With quartz...well im not so sure. A cheap chinese quartz is already very accurate on a yearly basis and certaintly enough for the average person. So is the difference in quality noticeable?
