I had associated quartz watches with lower quality in fit and finish. Not always right, I know. When GS introduced the high end well finished GMT in quartz I had to have one. No service required just battery changes when the second hand moves in 2 second increments.
That said, I have a substantial number of mechanicals and they are my go to pieces, especially Rolex.
I can resist everything except temptation.
If you are not part of the solution you are part of the precipitate.
Vintage quartz from the 70s and 80s is nothing like the cheap plastic Chinese made stuff of today.
In the 80s Casio already produced watches like the F28W, F84W and CA53W that are still in production, at that time they costed more.
I agree that in me there always a prejudice:"I don't want to spend much money on a quartz, better buy an auto", the arrival of the GW5000 changed my mind, it made me aware there still are quality LCD quartz around.
Unfortunately we have been spoiled for three decades by Casio and Swatch who offered excellent watches at very low price to the point that we identify quartz with "cheap".
These two quartz watches came to live in my home this week. Very happy with both, and to me, worth every penny I paid for them.
I love and have a place in my collection for...

Buy proper glasses that have lenses for your needs, wear them all the time and I guarantee that you look younger and better dressed.
But pick the frame that suits your face shape, and of course pick the right colour(you need help with this one and ask opinions from several sources).
I just love that I have this one, it's accurate.
Amazing, a watch that stays in time.
