Functional tool or beater?
My resin G Shocks fulfill that role.
A versatile grab and go?
For sure, my gmw-b5000 was bought with this in mind.
A multi functional travel watch?
An Oceanus ocw-s100 is on its way.
Luxury fit and finish for a fraction of the price?
Interesting innovations and functionality at a price where automatics can only offer the same old ETA, Sellita, Miyota, Seiko, etc. movements?
Again GS, along with Longines and even the Oceanus for me.
All, from my cheapest G Shock to my favorite HAQ's.
What about you? I have noticed my collection shifting more towards quartz (I love both autos and quartz equally, they are not binary opposites in my world), and I was curious what role quartz plays in your collection?
