For me, there's just something about the tiny, complicated machine that is an automatic watch. It's an incredible masterpiece of mechanical engineering that I can wear on my wrist. While a quartz is interesting from a technical standpoint and may well keep better time, it just doesn't have the same allure to me. You may well not agree, but that's fine. It's just how I feel about it, that's all.
