    Quartz, the JLC Mechaquartz movement inside.

    It's a really nice oddball piece.

    My Rado,
    I love the design, and it was my first decent watch.

    What's your favourite quartz watch!

    My tuna.



    Besides being a stunner, this post on the movement really helped in my appreciation for quartz. It is two posts down.

    My partner has several 'posh' watches, Rolex, Cartier. But the one she wears most is a simple Citizen eco-drive 30mm, water resistant to 100metres, with six year guarantee. Cost....£150.

    I think they are a cracking looking little watch. I'm always looking on eBay for one. I think it'd be a good watch for my son too.

    I have been collecting quartz watches avidly for quite some time. This is my current fave quartz watch.

    I've got it from https://sweetbuyouts.com/products/ne...ovski-necklace online store

    CWC's RN diver"s watch (no date) on an original MN strap. Tough, uncomplicated but with a certain style.

    Has to be my Grand Seiko HAQ SBGX263, really - beautiful in form, and admirable in function. A watch with a lot of thought put into it by GS.

    Honorable mention to my CWC G10, a super little watch with an ETA 955 that is terrifically accurate, even by quartz standards.

  23. #123
    Certainly not to everyone's tastes, but everyone who's tasted one likes the taste. The best, practical G-Shock there is, the GW-5000-1JF. Solar/atomic with a fully-featured module and only two drawbacks; a quietish alarm and compared to battery powered Gs, a backlight that while entirely functional is not as bright.

    Seconded. Fantastic watch and my favourite quartz. Mine is currently running +/- 0 against my atomic G Shock.

    My black quartz SMP is my favourite as it was a present from the Mrs many years ago but this rare Doxa Aqualung US divers comes close.

    A humble Seiko SGG731. Great size, all titanium, good movement (hits every marker and 5 year battery life), sapphire, decent water resistance, slate grey dial, applied markers and baton hands. And all for not much more than £100. No half links provided, but it happened to size perfectly for my wrist. Happy days - undoubtedly the best value watch I own.

    This, by a long way



    If the lume were better it would be perfect.
    In fact, I think I am going to get mine relumed to make it so, but it is still penty good enough as it is.

    It is the A-13A chronograph by a great Italian guy called Paolo Fanton.
    100m WR, centre seconds and minutes on the chrono, and hour-hacking make this a very usable watch for all occasions.

    I'll second that, a cracking quartz watch.

    I just love the design of the mondaine Swiss railway watch. Havenít seen a stop2go one, but thatís a unique quartz movement thatís very cool.

    Just seen this Neil, very nice & if ya ever fancy a swap.....
    I've moved away from vintage mechanical of late, too much hassle when things go wrong. Some weird stuff from the 80s & early 90s, like early Citizen pilot types now grab the attention.
    My Sinclair gets the nod also but I can't get the bugger to work!

    Don't have any high end quartz, I have a few Nixon's that are ok and quite aesthetically pleasing but these two would be my favourite quartz....

    I have to agree with this. Back when I joined this forum I never thought I'd end up wearing a G shock but this one is just superb.

    The Newmark is due soon, and a very attractive price, but don't be fooled into thinking that the Newmark makes the A-13A poor value. It is all the watch that the Ä793 price tag promises it should be.

    What's your favourite quartz watch!

    If weíre talking normal quartz then itís the Heuer Night Diver for me...
