Who's worse - mech snobs or quartz snobs?

I'm definitely a quartz snob. I think mechanicals are outdated, fragile, inaccurate, inconvenient, overpriced, too heavy and lack useful features.

But maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. It's very possible that my brain has been deep fried from all the electromagnetic radiation from the battery in my watch. 馃

Watches, mechanical or quartz, seem outdated, fragile, inaccurate, inconvenient, overpriced, too heavy and lacking useful features to me. I therefore find everyone not wearing an Apple watch suspicious. 馃槈

What if you like mecha-quartz? do both variants of snob hate you then? :P

Or maybe you become the king.. 馃槼

In this enthusiasm realm you鈥檙e simply outnumbered, but if you ask me, it doesn鈥檛 really matter. I embrace it all and I have no allegiances.

As to being a snob鈥

My thought goes back to an old negotiation tactic - don鈥檛 be so sure of what you want, that you wouldn鈥檛 take something better.

Spring Drive movements?

There鈥檚 no right answer, just your own answer to it, but in my book it鈥檚 worth to give it a shot 馃槈

Cheers

Not a fan of any snob, What I am a fan of is. Things of beauty and workmanship聽

I'm a personally a spring drive fan since the flowing second hand motion best matches the true flow of time, it's not staccato steps. 聽 That said, I also love regular mechanical watches of all sorts.

We all know quartz hands mechanical watches their asses in most aspects of timekeeping... but I still prefer mechanical movements owing to the human powered spring and exquisitely precise cogs and wheels that make it work. 聽Kind of a horological mechanical poetry. 聽Very zen 馃槍

I'll probably get a nice quartz one of these days, but the idea of changing batteries and that jerky second hand is a bit off putting.

im more smartwatch crowd, quartz and mechanical? seems outdated 馃槀

Snobs of all types are the worst.聽

There is no reason to put down what others like just because it isn't to your taste.聽

All traditional watches are outdated. If you must be a snob these days you should probably be a smart watch snob!

I like that quartz bros can simply list factual advantages in support of their position without personal philosophical rationalizations.

Simple, just remove the seconds hand. Perfectly smooth.聽

But yeah I get what you mean. Mechanical is very elegant.聽

Also God made quartz so it's superior spiritually as well.聽

Not really. Apple watches are terrible.聽

They are fragile, uncomfortable, overpriced, inconvenient, guaranteed to become landfill when their batteries are too weak and are a fire risk.聽
