So I've been thinking about Quartz watches a fair bit recently. By my own omission I would say I have been bit of snob & have always looked down on Quartz watches. However as of late I have been growing to appreciate & even desire a few Quartz watches.
Precision in mechanical watches has never really been of concern to me & I would be quite happy with a +/- 20 seconds a day watch. Admittedly I've never really spent substantial money on a watch to expect it to be a lot more precise. However, the thought of a watch being consistently accurate without much input is also appealing.
I know Quartz is traditionally seen as being a cheap alternative. But at the same time Grand Seikos 9F movement is an incredibly impressive piece of engineering. Further increasing the accuracy by monitoring the ambient temperature, a "backlash" mechanism that ensures the second hand isn't affected my gravity or movements & thus will always align with the markers (none aligning hands are a real pet peeve of mine) Not to mention that it is all done by Grand Seiko in house & not used elsewhere.
Really, I just wanted everyone's thoughts & comments on Quartz. So Please let me know what you think.
