Top Things To Look For In A Luxury Watch Part 2: Medium Range Luxury | aBlogtoWatch

If it doesn’t, you’ll want to make sure it is a pretty special type of quartz movement such as Superquartz (like Breitling’s thermoline quartz movement that is accurate to 5 seconds per year). Otherwise, the name of the luxury watch game is having the best possible mechanical movement. Why? This is not an easy question to answer, to be honest, because quartz watches are actually more reliable and accurate, for the most part. Still, a mechanical watch movement never needs a battery, represents the classic way of making watches, and offers a certain emotional value that the “tick, tick, ticking” of a quartz watch simply cannot offer.
