Swiss Angst
Already the early big US watches frightened Swiss manufacturers with exchangable parts and high accuracy. But they took it easy, because such simple constructions, often pillar desgns, had limited chances on the European market. But in the beginning 20th century small, slim, and affordable watches appeard, featuring chronometer accuracy as standard, and with a finish matching Swiss top products. This must have been shocking. This watch demonstrates that with certain care the accuracy doesn't suffer in 98 years:†Despite the not known service history the maximum deviation between positions of 7s/day†still fulfills even today's COSC limit of 10s/day.
† † †Also the gold plating was top notch; While good Swiss cases came with a 20 years guarantee, Hamilton advertised the plating as "permanent". A lie of course, but at least ist was sufficient for 98 years.
