    aBlogtoWatch - Should Watch Makers Advertise The Accuracy Of Mechanical Watches?

    Research a car, and you'll know its mileage and 0-60 time. Buy a phone, and you'll get information about estimated battery life and how much memory it has. Buy a watch, and you'll rarely have any information as to how accurate it is supposed to be. Of course, anyone can take in their watch to a watchmaker and have its rate results tested or use a device they purchase on their own, but why is it that more watch companies don't make it a point of pride to advertise how accurate their watches are?

    Would the general public spend thousands on a watch that is advertised as losing a couple of seconds a day..?
