    What's your favourite quartz watch!

    The majority of posts on here are for mechanical watches. So I thought I'd start a post on which quartz watch do you own that is your favourite. Or I can open this up and ask what you would like to own.

    My favourite owned quartz is a Breitling Colt 44:

    Tricky one. As I have a Breitling B55. But for me this is my favourite quartz.

    My favourite quartz is my SMP 300 which I wear regularly.

    I kind of hanker after a 38.5mm Aqua Terra Quartz but not quite enough to actually buy one!

    Omega SMP Bond Quartz, great Watch.


  12. #12
    Possibly the SMP 2264, which I no longer have any :(

    Current ownership favourite is my Omega Skywalker, followed by the black dial/bezel version of the above pictured Tag Aquaracer which is a great watch for the money. I still love the 5600 G-Shocks though.

    I wish Omega would put. Thermocmpensated quartz in the SMP300m range, along with a slim Master Chronometer movement.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Not just my favorite quartz but quite possibly my outright favourite watch in my collection - my SBGX063.

    Loving this. Almost brought a silver 1 a year ago. But it wasn't scratched enough to make it cheap enough for my budget at the time as I know it would be a regular wearer. I know iceblue had one of these as well and from memory was on a nice strap combo.

    Glad I started this thread now.

    Mine is the Bulova Moonwatch.
    I won't post a picture; if you want to see one I believe there is a picture of one on another thread......

    I wish they would make a Quartz Planet Ocean. In fact I'd like Omega to make quartz versions of a lot of their range but they seem to have stepped away from that.

    I do like quartz for their robustness, pick up and go ability and that they are often much more reasonably priced than mechanical movements.

    When you see nearly 40 year old quartz watches still going strong I'm not too worried about longevity either.

    I only have one which is this MWC:



    This is worn when going down the pub. Not stylish or a statement piece but can take / has taken lots of abuse.

    This just looks so classy. More people in the UK should be educated about Grand Seiko

    Here's mine. Not fantastically expensive. Has a spelling mistake. But great case and lug shape and perfect size on the wrist.

    That's very difficult for me to answer as 45 of my 50 watches are quartz. But the ones that get the most wear are the top 5 in this pic.

    CWC RN diver, no-date version. Also the Sinn EZM2 Hydro. I also had a Longines VHP (very high precision) dress watch back in the early 1990s. The latter was probably my first good quality watch.

    CWC G10.

    There's something about these watches that just ticks all the boxes for me.

    Thanks! I still have kind of mixed feelings when wearing this, it's actually quite "showy". All gold parts are solid gold, not plated. I was actually surprised by this, the solid gold middle links feel very nice.

    This GS is the favourite (and only Quartz) I currently own.



    Must admit I fancy the new X-33 but I'd love the Solar Impulse version but on the titanium bracelet that was unfortunately not an option.
