I own a couple of quartz watches and am very happy with them (my Citizen Skyhawk and G-Shock).
However, I would not want to spend significant amount of money on a mid-range or high-end quartz watch, they just fail to intrigue me. Maybe this feeling doesn't make sense, but then nothing about this hobby makes any sense.
There is one exception to this: my wife's grail is a ladies Cartier watch (because you can basically only get them in quartz, and she doesn't care about what makes it tick one bit). One day I will get it for her.
Notwithstanding the above, I would never look down on anyone who does derive enjoyment out of quartz watches. Any enthusiast is a welcome addition to the Watch, er, Movement.
