    An excellent watch in every way - and I know what you mean about the liberation of quartz. I'm delighted that my Grand Seiko is quartz and wouldn't have bought the mechanical equivalent.

    An appreciation of quartz is a sign of maturity in a watch enthusiast.

    Congratulations! It looks great (although it is a bit small, isn't it?)

    I've been wearing a quartz daily for a little while now, and it is rather liberating.

    Great watch Shameless! I am "in to" quartz for about 2 years now, i still wear mechanichs, but it's so nice that a quartz is allways ready to go. They are the Labradors of the watchworld..If i might give you a tip, Certina DS2 (with or without chrono), they are TC-HAQ for a fair price... Enjoy your watch!
    Kind regards,
    I-B

    there is an expression ''pi**ing on someone's chips " -its 36mm which imo is the perfect size for a watch

    Beautiful quartz, Shameless (or, is that now, Shamelezz?).

    These days, it seems like I wear my quartz Citizen a lot more than my wind-up watches. Always ready to go, always accurate.
