“fit and finish” of a watch

Post by koimaster » July 28th 2021, 3:24pm

What does the “fit and finish” of a watch actually mean and should I even care?

“Fit and Finish”. If you search watch forums enough or eyeball videos on Youtube, you will undoubtedly run into this term. Initially, I had an inkling as to what it was referencing, but I hadn’t grasped its importance or whether I should even care. But as I started to dig deeper, I began to get a better handle on what fit and finish really means to a collector and when it should matter. This is what I’ve found.

Fit and finish can be hard to explain. Good fit and finish is something you recognize and appreciate when you find it.
