I've been having a "discussion" with someone on another non-watch site about watches. He claims that after 14 years of working on watches that, and I quote, "I can tell you this, make sure you get a japanese made watch. They are the finest made in the world as far as the movement goes. The cases are built good too (citizen better than seiko). Do not buy a swiss made quartz watch. They are the worst of all the better quality qaurtz wathces out there. When buying a Rado, Rolex, Tag Heuer or Tissot, you are paying more for the name and/or gold and diamonds than you are buying a good quality watch."
Are there any comparable experts who share this view? Anyone have any specific examples?
