The worst analogy ever Rexx.

People buy Rolex because of the history of automatic matches and the
skills inherent in an single piece. And the fact they are as strong as a
safe. hold their value very well, and feature ageless elegant styling.

These watches WILL last a LOT longer than the quartz cheapy and will
never stop so long as you wear it and are breathing.

They also make nice heirlooms.

Accuracy is never a consideration when buying an automatic movement.
