Jargon Buster

Postby koimaster » April 11th 2018, 10:54am

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.
