    . As I said for finished watches as well as Rolex and PP. I believe there are more, but they are not brands I have looked at. I would assume JLC has something similar? I just have no interest in a JLC.

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    I don’t think so. As far as I know, JLC has never gone in for chronometer certification. On the other hand, they have 1,000 hour testing which goes above and beyond most certification processes.

    It reminds me of Rolls-Royce, who at one time would only say that their cars had ‘sufficient’ horsepower. Gentlemanly discretion, and all that.

    GO tests the watches with the movements in the cases. They provide detailed certs with the watches, which are also available online.

    Yep, and my JLC is one of my most accurate watches...
