This is how you wind the $345,000 HUBLOT MP-05 LaFerrari. Because of the 50 days power reserve this tool is quicker than the human hand and saves you time. This exceptional tourbillon movement is made out of 637 parts.🔥
Considering the huge price difference between both entry level versions of a mechanical and a quartz watch- Why would anyone buy a mechanical watch and complain about it being off a couple seconds? 👇
Let’s entertain this thought a little. An entry level quartz watch can run even cheaper than $100 but is significantly more accurate. An average quartz watch runs around 32,768 hertz compared to an average mechanical watch of around 2.5 to 4 hertz. Quartz watches have a more stable time keeping with extremely little error for deviation. 🗣
If accuracy and timekeeping is what you’re truly after, you might want to consider a quartz watch. If you enjoy the mechanical love of things then by all means you can justify the price difference.
I’m not bashing mechanical watches at all. By all means, I prefer it over quartz watches. Quartz isn’t perfect. If we’re talking about transparency though, why are people forking over an extreme amount of money for something that is relatively obsolete in timekeeping compared to the computer or phone? Is this truly a necessity? Or is this purely a status accessory with a bonus of added timekeeping?

Branding matters a great deal in our industry. An ETA 2824 could be $300 for one brand but $3000 for another. These are facts. Its unfortunate but it’s true. It’s not “deceptive.” If the consumers pay for it, there will be a market for that price point. 🗣
But why do people spend more on one brand versus another even though the movement inside could be the same? Story-telling. Brands relied heavily on that before and they still do. ETA movements have been tried and trued. We know they work and are reliable. We know there are different grades of ETA movements for different accuracies and finishes. That’s amazing! There’s a reason why almost every brand has used it at some point. 👇
These points caused HUGE backlashes in the industry. So much so that in today’s climate, everyone has “in-house” movements. 👨🏫The better question how is... Are these in-house movements worth it?
