Personally I'm not a Quartz buyer ! but my girlfriend has asked me to help in buying her a watch and she seems to want a Quartz !
mainly for the convenience of grab and go and the accuracy !
she has found a few she likes and two of these are promoted as being SWISS QUARTS movements , and the price on these are somewhat higher
than the other Japanese Quarts !
Now i know nothing about the build Quality of these movements but am wondering, how different can they be ?
In my ignorance i say a quartz is a quartz no matter where its built and to my thinking the price difference can only be put down to the higher
labor costs in Switzerland as opposed to the extremely low labor costs in Asia !
Correct me if I'm wrong BUT , didn't the Japanese invent the Quartz ?
shouldn't they be the masters of the Quartz world ?
To add some weight to my way of thinking , I am also aware that 99% of the buying public mentally connect the word SWISS to the word QUALITY
when you are talking about watches so this gives the Swiss a higher asking price advantage !
I know nothing about this so can anyone give me some details in the difference between the two please ?
Laymans terms would be greatly appreciated Thanx !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
