10 Point Challenge

The 10 point challenge is a proprietary ranking system that allows us to compare wristwatches on 10 unique factors. This point system ranks wristwatches on 10 different aspects of it's construction that gives us a clear score of it's overall appeal. Some of these factors are subjective. So this isn't a definitive marking system. It's just a way for us enthusiasts to have a gauge on a watches overall capabilities. 

Each watch will be ranked on the following factors, where either 0, 0.5 or 1 point will be awarded -

  • 10. Brand Prestige & Watch History
  • 09. Dial Design  & Legibility
  • 08. Materials / Specifications
  • 07. Movement
  • 06. Details & Finishing
  • 05. Lume Experience
  • 04. Supplied Strap / Bracelet
  • 03. Comfort
  • 02. Style / X-Factor
  • 01. Value For Money

In the event of a point tie with another watch in the ranking, the watch will be appropriately placed above or below another watch depending on my personal preference. However a watch cannot be placed above or below another watch that has more or less points, only if they are tied.
