Here is a Tauchmeister with a 21 jewel mechanical movement. Tauchmeister/Aeromatic sell both quartz and mechanicals----priced from under $100.00 to near $300.00----I have several of them, including one automatic, and I'm pleased. Overall----my take is that if you want a watch to keep time and maybe for fashion----go with a quartz. If you're a hobbyist and if you're fascinated with craftsmanship and marvel at "how things work" look for a mechanical movement. My Aeromatic with a 19 jewel movement has a clear back to the case so I could see things moving.

By the way----in that listing I linked to----I think maybe the seller meant U Boat and not U Boot !

Well written article, Marcus! I always wanted a high end watch, but my issue is two-fold: 1)I could never settle on just one definitive watch. 2)I'm too much of pragmatist to own something expensive that ultimately functions the same (or better) as something cheap. Regardless, I rarely wear a watch anymore (or any jewelry, including a wedding band), but when I do it's a cheap G-shock. What do you think is the best value for a cheapish non-quartz mechanical watch?
