    For you mostly (or all) automatic folks, what's your favorite quartz?

    I know the overwhelming majority here prefer automatic movement. But do you have a "go to" quartz? It can either be one you own or one you're planning to buy.

    I have a couple, but only this one has made it into my watch box. Citizen Tough - one piece Ti case, 200m WR, sapphire..perfect weekend beater.

    Re: For you mostly (or all) automatic folks, what's your favorite quartz?

    Mainly, I love hand-wind mechanical movements (and why I do oh so love vintage!). Just like a standard-transmission, gearing down/up as hit the apex of a turn in the road, so as to really be driving, nothing beats daily interaction with a mechanical (love winding them up and hearing them tick, and what got me hooked in the first place :)

    That said, I've a few quartz, sport watches mainly (i.e., a Tag Heuer Professional Sports (Golf), super light on the wrist so as to do what it's supposed to do, and not interfere with my golf game as a mechanical would, and of course a beater, etc.) but also a couple of dress watches--i.e., IWC Portofino and Cartier. Wonderfully slim, accurate/reliable and excellent for travel, so as to be incredibly convenient all-around. Dress watches are supposed to be slim, etc, with quartz making up the bulk of this category for a reason, followed by hand-winds which are the slimmest next to quartz (the IWC Port is definitely that, plus a classic (timeless) design, excellent fit/finish --same for the Cartier, great designs and fit/finish, etc.--then, I'm a classic sort and don't mind quartz, depending on the category as said).

    I also have perpetual self winding automatics, albeit preferring hand-winds as said, so not sure into which category you'd put me (i.e., most of mine are hand-winds, not self-winding autos, though I have lots of autos plus a few quartz too). I just like watches, I guess ;)

    Cheers.

    Re: For you mostly (or all) automatic folks, what's your favorite quartz?

    General rule of thumb is I prefer automatics.

    exception A: Major Swiss or Japanese brand that has super fit and finish quartz at an affordable price. I have a Tissot PRC 200- great example of this variance ..they are about $200 with Saphire Crystal/Chrono Flyback/ All Stainless 200m rated.

    exception B: Omega Seamaster Quartz.. brand new about $1800. It's a move into upper echelon watches at an affordable price. It's not a cheap price, it's a contridiction to exeption A.. but I like the Seamaster.. and I like keeping my wallet full of cash :) .. of course if I find a mint used automatic Seamaster 300 at the same price as the quartz that is less than 5 years old.. the quartz SM is not happening.
