    This list is filled with issues. BP should around 2. IWC should be around 3. There are several others not worth stirring the pot.

    Historically, Timex brought inexpensive, relatively accurate time pieces to a whole nation. That should move them up the list some.

    I feel Cartier should be moved up to 3 - for their Horological significance.
    Chopard should be moved up 1 notch IMHO, they do have LUC in-house movement.

    Can you elaborate on Cartier?

    I changed the list again a bit to reflect the latest feedback.

    Patek Philip CREATED the first wrist watch but first wrist watches were mostly for Women and mostly as Jewellery piece.

    Cartier created the Santos model after the request from Alberto Santos-Dumont, an avid aviator in 1904 which started Men's watch evolution. Apparently, pocket watch was not very convenient when your total flight time was measured in seconds.

    Cartier Santos is SAID to be THE first Men's wrist watch to be created.

    It was sold in 1911 with movement made by Edmond Jaeger.

    Cartier was apparently first company to stamp Ref. numbers on their watch which was first counterfeit measure for watches as well.

    Read it all about it in Wiki under Louis Cartier.

    i heard Grand Seiko is up to par on quality with rolex.

    btw tag doesnt use its amazing history of watch making and time keeping to sell watches they just use superstars now. put them at the bottom!

    Quality. Not sure what the point is in the thread. After all, why should we agree which brand we think is better than the next? There is a lot of brand loyalty when it comes to watches, cars and other luxury items, so I wouldn't expect anything other than a biased response.

    However, my only experience of Tag is poor. It has stopped working 3 or 4 times and taken an age to sort, often having to be returned as they failed to fix it the first time. So in opinion, Tag is a POS brand and despite liking the odd model e.g. Monaco, GC, I wouldn't buy another.

    Forgot to mention, Calvin Klein watches must be rated higher than other fashion brands as they do use ETA movements (some ETA auto movements) as they are part of Swatch group.

    The list does not look to bad to me but I would rearrange a few: Fortis for example would be a little lower. But as far as the criteria goes, what about Cost/Value?????
