Not more expensive watches are more accurate.The major cost of a watch is in its appearance.
Battery problem for quartz watches

Generally, the replacement of women’s watches will be more frequent than men’s.(some men’s watches also use small movement).Whether it’s convenient to replace the battery should also be taken into account if it’s X-small or ultrathin watches.The smaller and thinner the battery is, the more expensive it will be.
