Out of curiousity ,I was wondering even a mass produced in-house movement produced by some manufacturer has some issue/problem.
They have state of the art factory. Huge funding for research but yet it still has a issue i.e the Omega 33xx movement.
How does these small scale(as compared to the mass produced manufacturer which normally under a watchmaking group) fair with them?
The handcraft independent watchmaker which produced in-house movement would cost a premium and the price would be many times higher than the mass produced movement . And coupled with lesser funding for research and development(as a disadvantage) as compared to the giant watchmaker, and many other constraint which normally a small scale watchmaking company has, how would it be able to churn out a masterpiece with highest level of quality and problem free movement?
In my opinion, it's not easy to but an in house movement.It requires lots of R & D effort and vigorous testing(please correct me if I'm wrong).
Thus, anyone could shed a light on this puzzle?
