I personally don't care about it being auto vs. a quartz. I just get stuff that I think looks good. If my Omega came in a quartz, I probably would have bought that instead of the auto. It's cheaper and more accurate. Not to mention the cost over the long run. Autos supposedly can last forever since it's mechanical parts that they have to lube or replace vs. the boards in a quartz that they eventually discontinue. But a quartz requires a $5 battery every 3 years whereas an auto requires a maintenance every 5 years or so. That maintenance can run anywhere from $200-$1000 depending on the watch. The Omega is in the $400-$500 range I think. Autos also can get affected by magnetic fields and don't like shock as much. If you're shooting an actual gun, I'd wear the quartz.
I was also looking at the Orient Star line of watches. Problem was those also started to get pricey when all I really need is a daily wear kind of watch.

I know Omega used to make a quartz AT. It's been discontinued.

I've sent my quartz watches in for new batteries. You're supposed to have them serviced periodically as well. It's not as intensive as with an auto which means less money which is good. I believe you're supposed to get them pressure tested as well when you have them opened if you're concerned about getting the watch wet.

I was also looking at the Citizen line of watches for the ecodrive technology. Not ever having to change a battery on a quartz watch was pretty appealing. The problem was the watches themselves were pretty ugly. Not so much my style.

No gun here, so that's not a problem.

You know what's funny is that since I've been prowling on the watch forums learning about watches, some of the collectible and rare watches are amazingly fugly. There are some Casio G-shock watches are supposedly collectible, that I'd never want to own.

Speaking of VSA, I think I've narrowed down my selection to either the diver:



or this one

I think we agree. I'm probably going with the diver since it's a much more flexible watch. I can wear it every day and it'll still look good when I have to dress up. My concern was that it's a quartz movement and not an auto like the second watch. I suppose it doesn't really matter at this level.

Not sure watch nerds are hipsters. From what I can tell from the watch forums, it's a mostly guys with jobs. And older, too.
