From the article, it seems a great watch - Who knows why Rolex didn't start the production...
Yes good technology. I have lost all patience for mechanical movements. Even the Rolex ones. Rollie fans wax on and on about their tough "tool" watches, but the reality is, one good bash on a door jamb or drop onto hard surface and the movement will require service. 8-12 weeks of no watch & $800usd++ fee. Leave your Rollie too close to your phone overnight? Magnetized, even with the new parachrom blu hairspring. Easy enough to fix at home with a demagnetizer but all the same a hassle. Oysterquartz would be great if went back into production but I don't think Rolex can/will do that. I think Grand Seiko have even dis-focused on their quartz movements in favor of mechanicals per their new issues sadly. Citizen & Longines (ETA) the only ones really carrying the HAQ torch forward these days it seems. I really hope the 0100 doesn't die a slow death in limited edition land. 0100 in regular production watches might reinvigorate the whole HAQ market. Most people aren't even aware of HAQ.
