    Mechanical = "Has Soul"

    While Quartz does not.
    If you believe this, explain your prejudice.

    and the fascination with crystal casebacks is another, how do I admire the movement while it's on my wrist ?

    Not a subscriber, really. But I accept that the mechanical watch - stricto sensu - may be the alma mater of horology.

    The watches "soul" to me is the time, effort, and passion that each one is created with, regardless of whether it is electric or mechanical.

    Mechanical watches are just more interesting, but I don't find them 'soulful'. They don't dance better or sing with more meaning.
    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    'Watch + Mechanical + Soul' - I wonder if there's a way of adding that to the proscribed words and phrases filter?
