Before I found WUS, I owned one mechanical and three quartz wristwatches. I'm now up to 5 mechanical and 13 quartz wristwatches, plus one mechanical and two quartz pocket watches, for a grand total of 6 mechanical and 15 quartz. That puts me at a little over 70% quartz.
Since learning more about them here in the forums I wear my mechanicals most of the time, but I also like the "grab it and go" aspect of a quartz, especially on weekends and holidays. Style and design tend to be higher on my list of priorities than movement (I've grown to like chronographs in particular - 4 of the 6 on my wish list are chronos), but I've definitely given automatics more space in my collection and will probably end up around 50/50 before my collecting is done (as if the collecting is ever really done, right? ).
Like many others here, budget is a big concern to me; home and family come first, and then if there's anything left over it goes toward my addic- I mean, my hobby
I still haven't really picked out a "grail" to aspire to owning one day (the Airboss Mach 6 is probably the closest thing to a grail on my list), but I'm thinking more and more that when I do it will be a mechanical.
