In my quest for ever-more accurate watches with longer and longer power reserves, I find myself missing the user input aspect. I just acquired a new G-Shock, and though it’s a solar quartz and thus requires very little from me, I’m enjoying having buttons, alarms, and world-time functions to fiddle with. After wearing any given watch for a while, I enjoy switching back to an automatic, performing that initial winding and setting. But automatics (and accurate ones at that) do a fairly good job of maintaining the time once wound, set, and on the wrist. That’s kind of the point. Plus, with some manufacturers’ insane power reserves of five days or longer, some automatics are approaching quartz watches in their ability to coolly tick away with minimal user input. I like watches. To some extent I need watches. It would be nice to feel needed in return.
