Hello , can't sleep and was reading through forums. Sorry if something doesnt make sense. Alot of Information. I have automatic's , but for certain tasks I need something not so delicate that will last. A good all around watch for a couple hundred. I am not fond of G shocks, but need to get a quartz this time. From what I have read , quartz are not well liked here, but it is what I need. A friend has a Hamilton which I never seen before and I actually like the look very much. He has not had his very long and I have read some bad things about the brand. Does anyone on here have a quartz Hamilton that they have had for a lengthy time without problems. Or any other mid- range quartz. Something between the $100-$400 range. No divers, just something with reputable dependability for a long time. As I am not one for servicing. Preferably a Hamilton now that I seen one. I know Seiko is suppose to be good but I would like to stick with Swiss if I can help it. Just not as much of a selection. Maybe because Japanese quartz last longer? Hope this made sense, thanks for your help.
