The Value of a Swiss Watch

The high quality and value of a Swiss watch is  hard to deny,as they have been a market leader in the watch industry for over four centuries. But many people are not aware of why Swiss watches are so popular. There are a number of factors that make it a truly classic watch.

The Watchmakers' Guild of Geneva first appeared in 1601 after their nearly 50 years of high quality watch production. The first self-winding wristwatch was manufactured in Grenchen in 1926, and not too long after this, the first electrical watch was made. The Swiss watch has always been at the forefront of ground-breaking watch technology. They produced the first quartz watch, the first water-resistant watch, and eventually the thinnest wristwatch ever.

Swiss watches are made to suit the needs of a diverse market. They manufacture affordable watches for the average consumer and, at the same time, make some very exclusive watches that cost in the millions. There are a number of styles and functions you can expect to find with Swiss watches - from the very basic to the most elaborate.

Whether or not you can appreciate Swiss watch manufacturing might have to do with where you live and the amount of exposure you have had to Swiss watches. This is because the market for Swiss watches varies across the world. Swiss watches export over 95% of their products and the distribution is quite uneven as 47% is exported to Asia and Oceania, Europe receives 33%, 19% goes to the Americas, and Africa only 1%.
