    Quartz movement with a sweeping second hand?

    The thing I really enjoy about an auto is the smooth sweep of the second hand around the dial.

    Is this available in any quartz movements?

    (apologies in advance if this terribly stupid)

    I used to have the Stop2Go, but sold it, as the second hand ticks 4 times a second, which I found to be very jarring.

    There's a couple brick and mortar ADs around here that do business online:

    Topper Jewelers » Grand Seiko » Spring Drive Calibre 9R Series
    Grand Seiko Spring Drive

    I have one as well, while I don't find the movement jarring at all, I think that the precise movement of a conventional quartz would have suited this particular watch better. I get more compliment from non watch folks with that watch than any of my other watches. Just a fun one in the rotation.
