    There's just something cool about mechanical chrono's. There are some really good ones for not a lot of money. I have two, a vintage Seiko 6139 that I got for $89, and an Alpha Daytona for $152. But for affordable chrono's it's always best to go with a quartz, I can't even count how many quartz chronographs I own.

    None. I have a couple of quartz ones, but I really don't like the style at all.

    Don't want anything to do with them regardless of whether it is mechanical, quartz, squirrel powered, or sundial.

    I love mechanical chronos, I think everyone should have at least one! I love the feeling of the pushers on a mechanical.

    But then again if its not your style, it's not your style... Can't force yourself to buy something you don't like!

    I'm also in this boat, but since personal rules are meant to be broken, I'd make an exception with the Sinn 103.

    I only have one, and I bought it purely because I like the colour of the dial. Chronos in general aren't really something I get excited about, and mechanical ones are thicker and chunkier than I generally prefer.

    I'm usually a simple 3 hander guy but I do like a chrono in the collection.
