I have noticed a common theme is assorted threads. it goes something like this. Somebody posts about a particular watch and another person will respond ... "nice watch ... too bad its a quartz". I am curious about the "too bad" part. I do not understand what is "too bad" about a quartz movement.
To me a quartz movement is just an alternative engine. Quartz movements offer excellent accuracy often at a very affordable price. I have a Swiss Army Lancer dive watch that runs more accurately than my Rolex Yacht-Master or My Rolex Datejust. I can pick my Swiss Army having not worn it for a few weeks and count on not having to concern myself with having to adjust the minute hand for accuracy.
Am I alone in appreciating quartz powered watches as much as mechanical and automatic ones? Other's opinions appreciated and respected.
