That is mainly because these timepieces are generally more affordable than their mechanical counterparts but also come with the benefit of increased accuracy and practically no maintenance. If you’re looking to pad up your collection with a practical, reliable and stylish timepiece, you will find these quartz-powered pieces certainly up to the mark.
