In this article, I’ll discuss the different categories of luxury watches, go over the benefits and drawbacks of each category, and give my thoughts on my favorite replica watches—both classic and new!
Japanese Vs. Swiss Replica Watches
You may have heard that Swiss movement is always better than Japanese movement, but that’s not necessarily the case. It’s important to realize that both Japanese and Swiss watches have different tiers of movement depending on the watch and the watch company.
Understanding Swiss COSC Certification:
The most highly coveted watches are those certified by the COSC, the Contr?le Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres or the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, the organization responsible for certifying the accuracy of Swiss watches. To get certified, the watch must meet incredibly rigorous standards —only 3% of Swiss watches receive the certification! Some of the criteria require the watch be made of the finest quality material and be handled with care by a watchmaker during assembly. This along with additional jeweling makes the watches a bit more accurate than other budget products, but a lot more expensive as well.
Higher-end Japanese Replica watches have caught up in many cases in terms of style, quality, and accuracy. As a result, you can get much more replica watch for your money by going with a Japanese mechanical or quartz watch over a similarly-priced Swiss replica watch.
Replica Mechanical Vs. Quartz Movement
Both replica mechanical and quartz movement watches can be certified. Mechanical watches are powered by winding the mainspring while quartz watches are battery-powered.
While replica mechanical watches are less accurate, they still appeal to many because of their elaborate inner workings. The combination of low technology with high-end materials makes such watches an obsession for many collectors.
There are high-end replica watches with both quartz and mechanical movement. While the most valuable are collectible, antique mechanical watches, there are certainly newer quartz replica watches that are just as pricey as new replica watches with mechanical movement.
