About Swiss Watch Guide

Swiss watch guide is dedicated to providing news and information and a forum for discussion to lovers of classical timepieces. It is about celebrating a 300-year-old tradition of craftsmanship and excellence that has not been rivalled elsewhere. Enjoyment of Swiss watches is not just for the very rich. My first Swiss watch, which I got given as present in my teenage years, was a relatively cheap quartz Tissot. But I loved that watch. These days my mother wears it.

My next Swiss watch was a cheap Swatch. I’ve owned several and loved them all. Nowdays I wear a Tag Heuer Aquaracer (like the one pictured here) with a mechanical movement. This is a quality watch and a more expensive one. But its way down the bottom of the range in terms of price in comparison with the really expensive watches. This is a bit of a ramble, but I’m just trying to get across the point that enjoying fine craftsmanship need not depend on having loads of money. Most of my enjoyment is in fact at a distance. I’ll never be rich enough to own a Rolex, but I do love to look at them in shop windows and to read about them and admire the effort and skill that has gone into making them.

I hope you really enjoy your visit here and will come back. And please feel free to share your thoughts and passion for watches on this site.
