quartz isn't as desirable because much of the appeal of a wristwatch comes from the craftsmanship and complexity. a "fancy" wristwatch is an amazing complex mechanical machine you wear as a piece of jewelry. it doesn't appeal to everybody, but if it's your thing, it's your thing. yes, people who like luxury handmade watches know your casio cost $10.

quartz movements aren't as "complicated". but quartz has the benefit of being more accurate than mechanical movements and much more durable. you do need to replace the battery in a quartz watch, every year or two... but a well-made swiss watch with a mechanical movement will need servicing/oiling every 5-10 years so there's minor maintenance to both.

also, (almost all) quartz movements have second hands that go "tick tick" in 1 second jumps. a mechanical watch's second hands will sweep. (and generally, the finer quality the movement, the more fluid/less jerky it will move)

so, yeah, this quartz watch will not carry the cachet of an automatic movement, but it's still a really good looking swiss-made watch that will last a long time and look great for years at an affordable price
Buyer beware: I have a similar Edox watch and the black paint on the back side will come off in a few weeks. It leaves a very rough and ugly surface. I'm still battling with Ashford and they don't consider it quality issue. Very disappointing purchase.

At 41mm it's a large watch, but not by today's standards

the opposite. quartz means it does have a battery.

They recommend maintenance on mechanical watches every two years, I believe, and it's not cheap (unless you have a several thousand dollar watch, then, it's less % of overall price). Automatic movements these days are all mass produced and really don't have quite the draw they did in the past imo, especially when most companies don't use in house designs.

Depending on the maker/model of the automatic movement, I'd rather have a quartz. As someone who repairs them, I can't stand those cheap chinese movements. Especially the "fancy looking" skeletons. Such pieces of crap! I would rather buy a new movement for a customer than service the original. But, usually the cost of a service or replacement movement is more than they paid for the watch. Especially if they found a steal of a deal.

Well explained erishun, good information you gave in a nutshell.

so speaking of Sweeping Second Hand - Does anyone know if this Quartz have the Sweeping second hand or just the normal Tick Tick every second.

thanks
