    Accuracy or brand?

    If you had the means to purchase, would you prefer accuracy OR brand? They don't necessarly go together. I'm still debating this to myself so will give my answer later.
    We are talking about automatics here, or as Rolex terms it, Perpetual.

    Unless its COSC, no automatic is guaranteed to be more accurate than any other. Some movements at certain grades run more accurately than others, but those fall over a wide range as well. Given that there are few new watches which are grossly inaccurate, I would say that design/features outweigh brand or perceived accuracy (which is really a moot point).
    Lots of dive watches.

    I'd rather an AP Royal Oak that gains or loses more time than a submariner, or any COSC Omega etc. So long as the watch doesnt keep time poorly, which we know an AP wouldnt, then accuracy doesnt bother me that much. On the other hand though i recently had my omega serviced because i knew it was losing more time than it used to...and that bugged me...am i confusing anybody else here..

    Re: Accuracy or brand?

    I don't buy a watch for the brand name or it's accuracy (within limits), I buy a watch because it's design appeals to me.

    If I had a requirement for extreme accuracy then I would buy a quartz watch, and I would never buy anything just for the brand name.

    Accuracy is one of the factors that determine the quality of a watch. That being said, for most people, to quote Scott Adams of Dilbert fame, "good enough is."
