    MYTHBUSTERS WUS Edition.

    Whats some WUS or watch related myths you think need busting?

    I'll start.... that Automatics have a soul ;)

    Can you think of any myths you see in the world of watches or in the WUS community that need busting?

    The average person is impressed by what you have on your wrist.

    • In-house movements are always better
    • Helium escape valves are useful (for more than .001% of watch owners)
    • The Swiss make the best watches (and that Japan, Germany, England, etc. produce watches that are necessarily inferior)
    • This list makes me feel better instead of making me frustrated

    The more expensive the watch, the tougher it is.

    I'll go a bit further than that and say that the average man in the street doesn't even notice what colour watch you're wearing or even if you are wearing a watch at all.

    I would add China to the list, too, despite the fact that many of the components in modern day Swiss watches are made in China.

    Depends on the watch. Invictas are particularly fetching.

    I'll second the automatics have "soul". They're cold machines. No warmth.
