There is a great deal more that goes into the design of a watch than the layman could possibly imagine, especially when it is an IWC watch. While these amazing watches may have been designed many years ago, the design has been upgraded over time to suit the needs of the modern world. However, what was needed way back then is still a need for today in many cases.
For instance, years ago people who worked among magnetic fields needed a watch that could be relied on not to be affected. People such as pilots had the need of watches that would withstand excessive fluctuation in temperatures and constant shaking as well as the magnetic fields. Reputable watchmakers achieved this through the use of lead seals and a stainless steel case.
Today there are still many people who need a watch that is reliable in spite of such things and in addition, people who dive need a watch that is waterproof to a specific depth. There is also the need for a larger face with clear numerals and hands so that the time can be seen in murky conditions.
Divers especially are dependent on their watches to tell them when the oxygen tanks are running low and they should return to the surface. Their lives depend on the accuracy of their watches. That is why they buy chanel or one of the brands of watches that are well known for sturdiness and reliability. When watches have been in production for so many years, you know that they have a good reputation for those needed elements.
Cartier watches are another brand of watch that have established a good reputation for reliability. And of course like the others, they offer many different types of watches from dress watches through to sturdy working watches. Those beautiful dress watches are not made for rough working conditions, but they are still reliable.
Watches that are made for working conditions are much more robust and larger so that the face can easily be seen no matter what the conditions are like. Dress watches do not need to be quite so large or so sturdy, but they are elegant and reliable timepieces that anyone would be proud to own. So no matter whether you choose a sturdy workman’s watch on an elegant and refined dress watch you will be sure to have a timepiece that you can depend on for many years.
