Would you buy it?

Yes, quartz or mechanical, I don't mind.

No, but I wasn't planning on ever buying one either way.

No. I was expecting a mechanical watch and planned to buy one, but if it's quartz, I will not.

Ditto. I might rock a quartz watch if it's just a beater for <$50, but if we're talking something with a three-figure price tag, mechanical is the only way to go.

Unless you use an automatic watch all the time, you need to get a winder for it, I have three winder boxes on the go. All good automatic watches need to be used to keep in good working condition over time. as all the major watch makers will tell you. These winders can cost as much or more than the price of a CW watch. I have quarts watches like Bulova, Hamilton, Raymond Weil and I am amazed that I can go to the after a long time (months, years) and find them showing the correct time and going strong, I would have to reset an automatic watch which is not a five mins thing with my Omega Speedmaster. :?
