Simple pleasure of Vintage Seiko quartz watches

Post by koimaster » June 24th 2016, 9:46am

Only a short time after entering the watch hobby I discovered many collectors could not be called enthusiasts if their watch was driven by a quartz movement. Arguments against quartz ranged from the metaphysical (“quartz watches have no soul!”) to the aesthetic (“There’s no smooth sweeping second hand!”) and the economic (“quartz watches almost destroyed the mechanical watch industry I so love!). The mechanical vs. quartz debates will not be rehashed here. Rather, I wish only to share the pleasure I have found in collecting vintage quartz watches. I focus exclusively on Seiko quartz watches here because of Seiko’s role as the first mover in the quartz revolution as well as Seiko watches occupying the greatest part of my collection.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
