    it would probably help if you personalized it, why do you want to know? Got an imminent purchase?

    Perhaps two watches to compare?

    I'll play, The Citizen verses an Aerospace. The Citizen wins. Easier to read all analog face like a Sinn, and the separate hand setting options smoke my priced mechanicals. Any fancy timing options can be done with an iPhone.

    Side note, it's been a year since I purchased my second favorite watch, an Aerospace. It's still dead on. Hard to beat.

    All this from a diehard mechanical fan....

    This brings up an interesting question. With mechanical watches swiss made commands a high premium due to claims about higher quality and accuracy.

    With quartz...well im not so sure. A cheap chinese quartz is already very accurate on a yearly basis and certaintly enough for the average person. So is the difference in quality noticeable?
