The world of watches is impressive. It’s vast, full of ideas which are well presented (mostly). Horology, unlike a lot of different industries, is something that intertwines history with the future. Some watches are cheap, affordable and low maintenance; something which can be used for daily wear by those uninterested in timepieces. Other watches take hand craftsmanship to different worlds, even so far as developing new techniques and tools to achieve something never seen before. But, for all of this, who is responsible for setting the standards? What are the requirements for a watch? How do we examine a watch? This article will look at the different standards agencies set up which offer professional accreditations for watches. They have some different requirements, but most of them are either focused on timekeeping performance or the finishing and detailing of a watch.

Very interesting, especially the Poinçon de Genève and METAS certifications, which I was not aware of.

The following statement makes me want to see the author fucked vigorously in the ear.

The only rating I believe in is the FASFY rating.

Yup. Vacuous, narcissistic shite. Got barely any further than that; it is undeserving of more time. Author: fail!

The author comes of as a pretentious fuckstick, hyphenated surname and all.

Prepare the Cabriole table leg, I say.
