gotta troll better than that matey

got this watch about a year ago, to replace a Seiko titanium chronograph.
and never regretted it.
looks better in real life.
quite heavy but it is a large solid watch.
also the buttons and dials have a red enamel in lay(looks cool).
heat added.

Quartz, no thanks.

There's nothing wrong with Quartz. I'm assuming you drive a decent car and not a bog standard one, because = no thanks.

Just like you can buy a 3-4yr old good car for the price of plasticky and slow ecobox, you can get a decent automatic watch for not much more than quartz. They start from £100, there are even some Seiko models for £50-60..

Silly question, but I'm genuinely curious: in terms of user experience, what makes an automatic better, never having owned one? Are they more accurate? With the car example, a 3-4 year old good car is going to be more powerful, more comfortable, more reliable, probably safer etc. than a brand new no-name plastic ecobox - so what are the equivalent benefits of the automatic vs. quartz?

would purchase one but i dont think it would look right sitting in my watch drawer with my rolex and breitling

There is no great advantage either way. It's all down to personal preference and what fits in with your lifestyle. You have to wear an automatic regularly (or invest in a winder) to keep it wound, but there is no battery to run out. As a general rule, automatics are more expensive to make, are less accurate and less reliable than quartz, and they need more maintenance. I have both and whilst I can appreciate the precision engineering that goes into a well made mechanical movement, my automatics get very little wrist time as I prefer the grab-and-go convenience of quartz. My favourite is solar powered quartz - the best of both worlds. I suspect my views may well change after I retire and I have more time to 'fiddle' with my watches.

What a bland looking watch.

Very true. I love my Casio tough solars, just grab and go. My auto tag hardly sees daylight and the **** cost me £350 to service! How many decent gshocks I could've bought with that

this is something for me too ... watch... out for when I go into argos (_;)

Anyone know if the bracelet is folded steel or solid?
