For craftsmanship, one needs to go expensive... the sort of expensive that makes a Rolex seem affordable..All the damn classic Timex watches are quartz now.
It's a cheap and easy way to make watches.
It takes work, skils and knowhow to make a mechanical watch.
"craftsmanship" , which almost never exists anymore. Just some peon on an assembly line.
The likes of F.P. Journe, H. Moser & Cie, Voutiliannen etc. Maybe even A. Lange & Söhne... But even they still use CNC machines. If you really want to go "craftsmanship" (hand made) one needs to ask Philippe Dufour, but there you are looking at a 200 year waiting list....
Or, go the cheap route, get a Mühle Glashütte (I have one... very nice tool watch!)
