Have a look at the serious problems people have reported with their watches below. Some super high-end brands have had some serious problems and have horrible customer service. Take a look and learn something. Here are the results of the Watch Quality Survey answering this question: SURVEY QUESTION "Looking to determine the % of new watches that have a problem during the first year. List all the watches you have purchased (by make and model) and any problem or, equally important, indicate if there is no problem. Do not report accuracey errors if they are within +10s, -4s per day. If we get enough responses I will tabulate the results and post a summary by make. " RESULTS We received 55 responses representing ownership of 336 watches over a three day period (March 9-12, 2001). The results of this survey is not at all scientific, particularly for the smaller sample sizes. Also, a large majority of the defects were cosmetic or watch accuracy. Rather than draw any conclusions I will leave it to you to do so and post your comments. Following the table is the actual submitted information so you can read the particulars and draw your own conclusions. By the way, the most popular brand among the participants is Omega. Others are miscellaneous brands in which their sample size was typically 1-3. TABLE OF RESULTS The table below (which can't be aligned using this software, has 3 figures, the total number of watches of the brand, the number of those watches reported with no problems, and the % of the watches reported with problems of any degree, even minor ones) brand (# watches - no problems - % probs), others (78 - 59 - 0.24), omega (43 - 32 - 0.26), iwc (29 - 26 - 0.10), jlc (23 - 15 - 0.35), rolex (22 - 18 - 0.18), minerva (18 - 10 - 0.44), breitling(15 - 10 - 0.33), seiko (15 - 10 - 0.33), invicta (12 - 7 - 0.42), patek (12 - 8 - 0.33), blancpain(12 - 8 - 0.33), zenith (11 - 8 - 0.27), oris (7 - 5 - 0.29), un (7 - 5 - 0.29), GP (7 - 6 - 0.14), hamilton(6 - 5 - 0.17), fortis (5 - 2 - 0.60), panerai (5 - 3 - 0.40), ap (5 - 5 - 0.00), limes (4 - 4 - 0.00), (total 336 246 0.27) Submitted Data: 55 participants OMEGA 43 watches / 32 no problems Omega Seamaster Professional America's Cup - No Problems Omega Seamaster Ladies 120 - No Problems Omega Speedmaster Professional X-33 - No Problems Omega Speedmaster Professional w/Display Back - No Problems Omega SMP #2054.50 Perfect Omega GMT on strap Perfect Omega SMP - No Problems Omega Speedmaster - Auto winding problem - fixed by Omega Omega Speedmaster Racing LE - no problem Omega Seamaster: (quartz) Ate three batteries in 11 months.
