    My Botta Uno 24: it's a single-hander 24 hour watch for my Zen moods when I don't want to concntrate on how time is passing.

    My favourite quartz movement is definitely the JLC derived mecaquartz chronograph, and I've had a few watches with it in previously:
    - Omega Constellation 95 / 'Manhattan'
    - Tudor Monarch
    - IWC pilot / fleiger

    The only one remaining is this Porsche Design IWC titanium chronograph. It is a bit of a beater / gym watch as it is so slim and unobtrusive especially with integrated pushers (porsche long gone sadly):

    And very nice it is too. I'm pretty sure that would be my pick out of the case.

    Cool

    The digital screens on the Breitlings are interesting, not sure if it's just the pics but they're so black! Amazing, wonder how they achieve that? It's almost like a photoshop and someone has painted the hole jet black. You compare them to any other quartz screens, so different.

    I wear mine a lot. Just so easy to pick up and go and works well for most occasions.


    This is however my current favourite.


    And I have this new incoming waiting for me when I get home in 11 months.

    Without a doubt, it's also the 17000 for me.



    It's certainly the loudest wristwatch I know of, but I don't see that as a bad thing. The precise and very mechanical way in which the seconds hand hits its markers dead-on goes well with the distinctively metallic snick-snack sound that's unique to this movement.

    My EZM2, but I wouldn't' mind another UX.

    Mine is the lovely X33 that I acquired recently off SC. as well as being a gorgeous watch the practicality of a really loud alarm has been really useful. Really enjoying this watch.

    Love the Omega's.

    Also love the Heuer Quartz divers, I think they're going to continue climbing nicely in value. One watch I'd like for my Mrs is the last of the Heuer divers, looks like a little sub.

    It's got to be the biggest growing sector of the used market.

    I think digis are a little underrepresented here, so redressing the balance a little. I love vintage digis: https://mmcmusings.com/2015/03/29/my...tage-digitals/



    Although I'm a huge fan of this one too:



    This one gets plenty of wear too:



    Love GS quartz too:

    I'd be heard pressed to choose:










    I'm more keen on this one than I should be!





    The Swatch Autoquartzes are possibly the most underrated movements out there!


    What a movement this good is doing in a disposable plastic case is one of the great mysteries of horology.



    Amazing watch, dreadful integrated strap. with a cosy strap this would be the winner for me. Pity.



    The GP 352 is still hugely underrated, especially in the lesser known guises...



    It's not the only underrated movement out there...



    My favourite quartz beater for sure.





    The stinger is technically a dive computer and a bloody good one, but it still wears well as a watch.

    Some nice watches here, but I like a quartz watch to do something a mechanical can't, so it's this for me

    Not sure if this counts as I don't own one, at least not yet anyway. Everything a g-shock isn't.

    By a wide margin my favorite is my Citizen Skyhawk A-T.

    - Atomic clock radio sync daily, its timekeeping is never off
    - Solar powered, great reserve power supply
    - Legible dial
    - Nice size, all stainless
    - Has all time zones available
    - Easy to switch analog display to any time zone
    - Shows two time zones in addition to UTC
    - Countdown timer
    - Chronograph
    - Two alarms
    - etc, etc
