    Generally looks because if I don't like that I won't wear it. Sometimes, functionality wins, like when I was diving. I mostly used Citizen Aqualand Duplex watches, and I think they're pretty ugly, but very functional dive watches.

    Cheers,

    Wear what you like.

    For mechanicals, looks and movement. They both are equally important. Good look with in-house movement is the best combination.
    I agree with Wah Wah Wah. I will also consider design, those that are evergreen, those that we are not sick of looking and wearing over n over again.

    Interesting poll but why in a Gshock forum ??

    Look of course,but I've once sold a 6K Euro worth of stunning IWC chrono just because I could not stand the idea of having the same caliber of a 400 Euro Hamilton,wich,of course,makes the Hamilton best value.

    Looks of course, undeniably, undoubtedly.

    Probably movement, but I'm interested in Vintage where it makes a difference. You wouldn't buy a 7 jewel pocket watch when a 15 jewel one won't cost that much more. Factor in the service costs and the final price will be virtually the same.

    I won't even "look" at a watch that is not visually appealing to me. After that, the movement MAY OR MAY NOT kill the deal, but the watch WILL be one that I like to look at.

    Re: What's more important for you: Movement or looks?

    I guess I'd have to say looks. I like how all my watches look & I doubt I'd wear a hideous looking watch only because of it's movement.

    Re: What's more important for you: Movement or looks?

    Since functionality has been subsumed into looks I guess that makes my choice even easier. I find movements interesting, but, as others have said, as long as they pass a base level of reliability and quality it's all fine with me.

    Re: What's more important for you: Movement or looks?

    I like a nice exotic movement as much as the next WIS, but a watch with a great movement that looks terrible to me would be a deal breaker while a great looking watch with a common movement would still have my interest.
