Solar Quartz 👍or👎?

I don't care much for Quartz watches. Not that I have anything against them or that I think they are inferior in any way, I'm just not drawn to them. I give Quartz a try every so often but most watches last a couple of months in my collection. That said, I think this one is sticking around long term. I don't know what it is exactly, maybe the matt black jubilee, maybe it reminds me of #porschedesign but this #momentum Eclipse feels special.

I'm a quartz man. Too lazy to keep setting the time on mechanical watches

I’m loving the solar style of Venturian WildSider

I like both, and both have a lot to offer. But if all of my 30+ watches needed to go in for a mechanical service it would be very unmanageable financially.

Yup, low maintenance costs are definitely a huge perk!

Oh? What is this? I need to check this brand out, I didn't hear of them before.

Look at a Grand Seiko Quartz. Exceeds the craftsmanship of so many mechanical watches with a far more accurate movement.

For my job/personal interests solar quartz is often the best and indeed only option. Not so much for time keeping, but for what a (digital) quartz brings to the game. I have some very rugged automatics, but I’m not going into the back country without my Seiko.
