And my Rolex was so damn erratic I finally sold it - wearing a status
symbol was fun, but I was more in need of vaguely accurate time. I have
had similar problems with Omegas - never had those problems with quartz
watches, whether they cost $15, or $150. ;-)

And don't get me wrong, I really love the look and heft of the
traditional watches, to say nothing of the craftsmanship.

My Seiko quartz watch used to gain 1 second a week.  Week in and week
 Year after year.   Way back when I cared about these things, I used to
check with WWV on a regular basis.  The watch never wavered.
