    So yeah its not just the best selling watch on the planet its the most accurate, unless you strap an atomic clock to your wrist.

    Might add that Citizen outsells Casio both domestically and worldwide, and the best selling model from Rolex is still the Datejust, not a Sub.

    As far as the best selling mechanical watch in units, for all I know it might be an Invicta with a cheap Seiko or Myota movement. In revenue it will be Rolex.

    Yeah, I'd always heard the Citizen was the largest (by volume) watchmaker. They sell more watches than anyone. I'd imagine they beat the Apple Watch, too, but maybe not.

    BTW, where did you find that Apple Watch has a TC quartz module? Seems sort of pointless to me since it's connected to your phone all the time.

    So the Apple thingamajigger can go in the pocket or on the wrist, what's the difference? On the wrist it IS a wrist watch but in the pocket it's NOT a pocket watch? WTH?

    My 4-year-old has a tiny little plastic watch that cost next to nothing. It's not about timekeeping, it's about phone/text/Internet (weather,navigation etc).

    not a watch. A phone/computer/smart device that fits on your wrist, just like a watch.

    not a pocket watch. A phone/computer/smart device that fits in your pocket, just like a pocket watch.

    If you can find a way to logically distinguish between iPhone/pocket watch v. Apple "Watch"/wrist watch I'd like to hear it.

    not a watch.

    The Apple Watch was to be all of those things, not one thing with extras.
    They call it technology convergence.

    I personally do not care for the Apple Watch for a variety of reasons that are irrelevant here, but this is very interesting and well stated.

    It looks like a watch.
    You wear it like a watch.
    It functions like a watch.
    It is a watch.

    I was hoping you would address my argument and answer my implicit question. Anyone?

    What argument?
    You can't tell the difference between a watch and a phone, or understand the concept of convergance of technologies.

    That's not on me.

    You can spin all the logical fallacies you like, they remain fallacies.

    They said it when they were designing it, said it again when they introduced it, and Ron and others over on the HAQ forum confirmed its performance off line.

    Cool, I never paid attention to it so didn't know. They don't tout it on the product page (that I saw) but then that's a fairly esoteric spec that most buyers wouldn't appreciate anyway.

    Thanks.
