What Makes a Patek Better than a Seiko


Good questions on the PMWF: So what makes a Patek better than a Rolex better than a Seiko?

So we were kicking this around over at a sportscar BBS I hang out at. Everyone just SAYS a Rolex is better than a Seiko however a Patek Phillipe is better than a Rolex. As far as I can tell a high end Seiko has a excelent fit and finish will last as long and will keep just as good time as a Patek.

To add my two cents, I’ve seen high end watches being hand-made by German virgins in the little town of Glashutte and it’s an amazing sight. Each part is so delicate and requires so much patience and care that you’re really getting a hand-made device. Is it worth $10,000? Nah. But it’s impressive.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
