I have never been a fan of quartz movement watches, but not sure why really.
Very much the same with me.
Perhaps it is because they are devoid of many of the mechanical intricacies and craftsmanship that go into the automatic watches and tourbillons. With that said, if you are interested in a reliable time piece, nothing wrong with quartz. It's just a little sad when it just up and dies and requires a battery change as opposed to an automatic which just keeps on ticking in a watch winder.
