Why Swiss Made Watches Never Go Out of Style
30 May 2016
With all the digital watches available on the market today, one may think that Swiss Made watches are going out of style, but this is simply not the truth. The appeal of these watches is timeless among those who appreciate quality timepieces. Switzerland became the centre of the watch-making world more than 400 years ago, and many still prize this country’s watches today over all other types of timepieces.
WHAT QUALIFIES A WATCH TO CARRY THE ‘SWISS MADE’ STAMP
The movement of a ‘Swiss Made’ watch must be assembled in Switzerland along with the rest of the watch. In addition, at least half of the components of the watch movement also need to be made in Switzerland. Once watchmakers assemble the watch, the final testing of it has to take place within the country before the stamp is placed on it. All this means that the Swiss control the quality of the watch from start to finish.
SWISS MOVEMENTS PROVIDE ACCURATE TIME ACCOUNTS
One of the reasons that Swiss Made watches will never go out of style is the fact that their movements provide accurate time accounts. For people with hectic appointment schedules, this is important to enable them to arrive at each meeting on time. In comparison, a poorly crafted watch often can be off by 10 or more minutes.
WATCHES THAT CARRY THE ‘SWISS MADE’ STAMP ARE DURABLE
Swiss watchmakers create watches that are durable to withstand constant use each day. All the components from the winding mechanism to the movement of the watches will endure for years without breaking or malfunctioning. Certain styles are even highly water resistant.
WATCHES WITH THE ‘SWISS MADE’ MARK ARE AESTHETICALLY PLEASING
Another benefit of watches that carry the ‘Swiss Made’ stamp is that they are aesthetically pleasing in appearance. Swiss watchmakers accomplish this by combining quality materials such as stainless steel cases, sapphire glass and at times, genuine diamonds or other gemstones. You can select from trendy, classic or sporty styles depending on your preferences and needs. While classic and trendy styles are ideal for dress and business attire, the sporty styles complement your casual outfits.
