It's a pretty meaningless thing these days, used more for marketing than anything else. Even the very cheapest quartz watch can easily beat the COSC standard. If extreme accuracy is the OP's main criterion, then a radio-controlled or GPS watch (or even a VHP quartz) would be the best bet.

OP - unless you have a need for extreme accuracy, just buy the watch that you'll get the most pleasure from seeing on your wrist.
i had a feeling someone would say something... i averaged it cause easier.

but I agree, buying a watch should be more about liking the watch, than accuracy. If you need pinpoint accuracy, your phone does that.
