    Weighing in on the discussion, owning a modern mechanical watch and wearing it every day is like owning and daily-driving a Caterham 7. It's intentional anachronism in the face of the availability of cheaper alternatives that do what MOST PEOPLE want cars to do with less fuss. But we mechanical watch fans see a kind of soul in our watches, which the more accurate, cheaper, quartz alternatives lack.
