On the recent thread about the 5 things what every man needed, almost everybody agreed about the importance of a quality watch. I'm confused about what everybody means when they say a 'good watch.' What are the features that separates a good watch from a ordinary watch? When I think of something 'good' for clothing, I think of something that will have specs that will make it last longer. For example, how a canvased suit will not bubble like a fused suit. Yet, it seems with watches, this idea is inverted. Its the more expensive watches which lose seconds every month or year. I'm just trying to understand why my Timex watch wouldn't be considered a 'good' watch, other than the fact it costs less than $30. It will be less likely to lose time. And, the style is classical and clean.
