Nice colors!

I just discovered this watch, which I think is a thing of beauty: http://youtu.be/80cpGM58OgU

Herc: Where do you stand now with quartz vs. automatics? Not long ago, you were frustrated with the automatics----not enough wrist time to keep them wound. I concluded that I can have a few automatics/mainsprings and just reset them as needed. I prefer the quartz----but then again, I do find batteries going out more often than I'd like with my collection----and it takes money to keep the batteries fresh. I usually wear other watches for a while, until I really want to wear one with a dead battery----then finally get it addressed.

My oldest watch is a five-year-old Pulsar - the battery is still ticking away, the watch keeping time. I can't imagine becoming frustrated with quartz watches if the batteries last 5+ years.

I have one automatic, a Seiko Black Monster, which has to be babied since I don't have a watch winder. My student has a Seiko auto, which he's had for over 15 years. He's never serviced it and it works fine. So maybe it's okay to have one or two robust automatic watches. I wouldn't want more than 2 or 3 at the very tops to worry about.

Johnny: The thing is----many of my quartz watches are older than five years----some dating back to the 1980s. As your collection grows larger and the watches start hitting an age where the batteries start to go----you'll find that many times, you pick up a watch to wear----and it has a dead battery. Also, some of them do not last 5 years.

I have 2 monsters and a Seiko5. Believe it or not, my srp311 loses 1 second every 3 days. Unreal I know. But that's what it is, right out of the box. All 3 actually keep better time than any of the dozen or so Rolex watches I bought and sold in the 80s. Seiko automatics are really a best kept secret. You will get tired of wearing the same watch every day long before you will ever wear one out! Cant say the same for my former Rolex collection. The hand fell off of one and my brand new sub had the back cross threaded and it leaked the first time I went swimming! Point is..You just cant get better for the money than Seiko!!
