I myself have long worn a mechanical wristwatch. No quartz movement, no battery. I wind it every day. It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't that expensive either. The brand has been around for a long time though it's not well known; I'm sure most people have never heard of it. Sure, for pocket change I could've picked up a quartz watch at the discount store. But quality counts. For not so much more I got a finely crafted watch that's built like a tank, a watch that will last.
My watch keeps time to within 5 seconds per day, and not to within a few insanely quartz seconds per month. But either way is, as they say, close enough for government work. Quality counts. Only an era
