In my last post, I asked how to avoid fake watches, and I got so much great information, so I decided to start another thread for another question. In doing so, I hope other people will benefit from the advice in the future as well.
I'm quite dumb when it comes to the watch world, even though I've done some researches on Google. I know there are many different chronograph movements, but I don't know what makes a specific movement good, or average (if not bad). Is it accuracy? Or is it durability? I guess the availability of parts also plays a role here? Or there are more to movements that I am still missing?
When I googled, I found the following movement makers are the most popular (or most seen online): 1. Landeron 2. Valjoux 3. Venus 4. Angelus
Each maker produced different models e.g., Landeron 39, Valjoux 188, and etc. It seems like Landeron would be more of an average movement maker because it used to mass produce, and on the other hand, Valjoux and Venus were of better quality. But I've seen people giving thumbs up to Landeron movements as well. So, I'm quite puzzled...
Anyway, is there a movement that is a no-no to a beginner like me? Or is there a great movement for the entry to mid tier level buyer like me?
Again, any responses will be greatly appreciated!
