Wrong on both points. Clearly, you've never owned a Rolex. No, a mechanical movement with several hundred parts will never be as accurate as quartz, but saying they keep lousy time is just ignorant piffle.
Also, if you can't tell the difference between a replica and the real thing, I've got a coupon for LensCrafters that I'd be happy to send you.
