of an expensive watch can range from hundred of dollars through to thousands of
dollars, depending on your definition of the term. An expensive watch sets a man
or woman apart from others - it makes them look special and also says that you
think they are special.
In general, more expensive watches will actually
have water resistance to a certain level underwater. Unfortunately many cheap
watches feature markings on them such as 'WATER RESISTANT - 20ft' which implies
the watch is water resistant to 20ft underwater. Not so. Many cheap watches regard
the likes of '20ft' as a model number, so you are likely to find if you use these
in water (other than activities such as washing the car), water will get inside
them and spoil the components.
However with an expensive watch, this is
simply not an issue. These watches have been precision engineered to withstand
the pressures of water and have exceptionally good seals.
In terms of accuracy,
there are often significant differences between a quartz and mechanical watch.
Generally the accepted degree of accuracy for a mechanical watch in a given day
is +6/-4 seconds each day. While that may sound like a lot, most watches will
not lose or gain this much time. Even if they do, it is likely to be caused by
slight changes in the gravitational pull of the earth. However over a series of
days, these variations tend to cancel each other out, meaning the watch is likely
to stay more accurate than a quartz watch.
