Is there a publication or something like Consumer Reports (CR) for watches? I'm interested in finding out repair issues, similar to the number of repairs done by car dealers in the first few years of ownership. This would include warranty repairs at licensed repair shops. There doesn't seem to be enough, or any, information like this at all out there. We can get "reliability" results (time accuracy) from some web sites and evern Watchtime magazine when it reviews watches. But not much else.
For example, I have a friend who has a Breitling with the first B01 movement. In the first year or two, Brietling has had to replace movement parts, the hands and the dial. We don't know how much of this is legit, as it's all under warranty. With all the new in-house movements coming out, there doesn't seem to be any objective testing and/or watchdog group to double-check and then rate the products like Consumer Reports.
Is there anything like this I've missed? To be honest I wouldn't want to buy a watch with a new in-house movement much the same for not buying a new car with a newly developed engine, etc. What do you all think?
