Why are Swiss Watches Prized?

Swiss watches are at the peak of the industry. Why? Because almost every important innovation in wristwatch technology was born in Switzerland, including the first water-proof watch, the first chronograph, the first automatic, the first quartz watch, the first featuring a date, and many more too numerous to mention.

Over the years, Swiss watches have gained a reputation for reliability, quality, value, and prestige, as well as a perfect balance of art and engineering. On top of that, the most famous names in watches are all based in Switzerland with very few exceptions (Seiko, Citizen, Casio, Skagen, Timex, and a handful of important German companies).

Some of the leading Swiss companies include Rolex, Omega, Blancpain, Swatch, IWC, Patek Phillipe, TAG Heuer, Audemars Piguet, Breitling, Concord, Cartier, Ebel, Fortis, Movado, Oris, Piaget, Raymond Weil, Tissot, Swiss Army, Tudor, Zenith, Blancpain, Jaeger-LeColutre, Richard Mille, Girard-Perregaux, Hublot, Chronoswiss, Rado, Corum, Franck Muller, Longines, Ulysee Nardin, Wenger, Vacheron Constantin, Zenith and many others.
