I agree

Its better than every cream rolex
I really like these Invicta watches. I had two of their automatic Rolex style homage watches and they were excellent quality at the £70 ish price point. Better than the Parnis equivalents.
I sold them both on for a good price too.

Exactly. Why aren't radio controlled watches or GPS watches as standardised as quartz?

The whole point of a watch is to tell the time. It's pointless for any watch to feature a second hand or second display if it's not precise.

Why do manufacturers continue to sell expensive, but inaccurate watches which are outclassed by those costing a fraction of the price? Cannot believe a £15 radio controlled watch can outclass a Rolex on accuracy!

Worth saying the second hand is quite useful for counting seconds ie timing something. It's not just so you can say it is precisely 12:34:23. Hell I've got an automatic watch it's definitely not accurate.

To add radio control or GPS costs money, uses more battery power and adds to the watches dimensions. The whole point of a watch is not just telling the time it is also a jewellery item and a collectors and hobby item. Watches are accurate some types more accurate than others, there's a lot of room in this world for choice. It was what you call an inaccurate watch that saved the arc's of the Apollo 13 astronauts.

You've completely missed the point that I made about accuracy, if a mechanical watch was good enough for the astronauts then they are accurate enough for everyday use.

I think that you might have missed a point as well.

Apollo 13 was a mission that lasted for around a week and where every second was monitored by hundreds of people back home. The actual time was not very important and as the mission was so short absolute watch accuracy did not matter greatly either.

I want a watch that I can rely on to be correct. I don't want to need to check it for accuracy and I think of time scales much greater than a week. I want to only need to check the time accuracy when I change the time for BST & back. Quartz watches suit me just fine. I have worn both quartz & mechanical watches and apart from the accuracy of quartz I find no difference that matters to me.

Is this the same watch in a different colour for a lot less money?

Oh dear, you really do need to read up on your space history.

OK. We all know about the overheating wire & explosion on Apollo 13 but what was the particular importance of the watch? The mission was only scheduled to last around a week as far as I know

The spacecraft needed to be aligned to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere at the correct angle. Due to the high power requirements and unsure state of the command module, the lunar module descent engine was decided upon to make the course corrections. The descent engine had no automatic guidance or options for optical guidance; the astronauts were required to make a mid-flight adjustment to their trajectory and they had to manually time it with great precision, an omega speedmaster (hand wound) was used
Thank you.
I guess that is why you use test pilots & give them so much training. Whilst I am sure that it makes wonderful advertising copy the very short time period over which this unfolded surely makes the accuracy of the watch unlikely to have been a big issue.

Smaller at 38mm
eh? No one buys an automatic mechanical watch for accuracy and anyone spending big money on one that is anywhere near as accurate as a quartz (diminishing return) either can afford it or has no common sense since the purchase cost is high and it's going to cost an arm and a leg to have it serviced regularly.

Out of this and the Invicta auto hot deal, I'd buy the auto every time because it's a nice mechanical watch. If you just want the accuracy of a quartz watch, you may as well buy a Casio F91W as it'll keep time as good as this for 7 quid or spend no more than 50 quid.

Having said that, the F91W doesn't quite look as good ;-)

You are making the mistake of looking at a watch from a singular and very narrow aspect, it's accuracy. If accuracy alone is your single defining concern then buy a radio controlled watch and be done with it.

Most people favor a more balance approach and assign weight to a number of factors when purchasing as watch, it is after all an extremely personally piece of jewelry, that speaks volumes about an individual's preferences. Go ahead and factor in things like styling, character, the appeal of micro mechanical engineering has to many, fit and finish, quality and prestige --- in addition to accuracy, then you end up with an entirely different set of requirements - hence the eclectic watch market that exists.

Best Accuracy = radio controlled

Cheap but accurate = quartz

Heirloom & value appreciation + engineering + jewellery + kudos = Patek/Rolex
