Considering that they are not the first, but at least the third with
that idea (see archives for other CSAC wrist watches).

But seriously, a modern, temperature compensated quartz watch goes better
than +/-10s in half a year (about 1ppm), which is already about as good as you 
need for a wrist watch. Any better is just unnecessary overengineering.
Of course, it's a different matter if you like to show of to your peers.

Other than that, i probably would buy a CSAC and put it into some equipment
instead. :-)

I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in
the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous
even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being
superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.
