Swiss watches have long been associated with precision, solid workmanship and luxury. These traditional watches are divided into mechanical and quartz. This division is defined by the mechanism. Quartz is more durable and has a longer life span, they are not prone to shocks which makes them usable even in conditions where most watches would be damaged.
The popularity of Swiss watches comes mainly from the high quality and precision of the mechanisms and their external components. For the external components, surgical 316L steel is used, which is definitely more durable than stainless steel and does not tarnish. This steel makes the watches hypoallergenic, so they are not harmful for people with allergies.
