there’s so many out there you should have unlimited choice for a lifetime of cool designs ! :) while most quartz will have longetivity and ease of care they will rarely get serviced as they are usually worth just replacing.( except high end ones i.e 9f ) For that reason , if I can make a unsolicited suggestion , i would buy seiko’s , citizens and the likes , likely to offer widely available parts . And avoid micro brands quartz offering You ll avoid paying to service a cheap movement for redonkulous money 10 years from now . On the flip side , micro brands usually offer affordable and built-to-last workhorses (i.e Seiko NH35 or ETA ) at a very affordable price .Last forever and easily serviceable . So it’s a good way to rip your toe without too much risk . But the ones offering quartz maybe expensive to service down the road or even replace should the need arise , Relatively speaking . Quartz for Big Brands and Mechanical workhorses in Micros. Maybe some will disagree
