    What do you prefer..Automatic,Mechanical or Quartz movement.

    (Automatic is mechanical)

    I prefer autos. I like having a quartz or two for convenience, accuracy etc.

    Not the biggest fan of hand-winds as I prefer the increased self-reliance/symbiosis of an auto.

    I can enjoy a watch with a handwind, rotor wind, quartz, tuning fork or electric bslance movement. They are each an interesting part of the watch I happen to be wearing.

    I always show how democratic I am and say "either" but if the truth be told I prefer autos - just don't tell anyone.

    I prefer handwind to auto (and quartz just for beater chronos). I rotate watches often enough that auto-winding doesn't really help that much, and a handwind will be a little thinner as well.

    Quartz with a sweeping hand or no seconds hand are all good.

    Prefer hand wound to auto as they give you the ultimate interaction with your watch.

    Try winding a Panerai P3000 movement, it is just pure silk ;))
