Will start by mentioning that like many of the community members, Quartz was a taboo, almost.
Because a Gshock was acceptable
So quartz is (was) for me a taboo on "expensive" watches.
Why is that? it was not a "real" watch.
Then my knowledge expanded and my horizons widened.
There is a quartz and there is a quartz. For example:
The Rolex Oyster quartz.
The FPJ Elegante.
The Grand Seiko quartz..
My acceptance for expensive quartz watches is for high quality quartz watches (not necessarily expensive) made to last many years .
The main concern I have is water that can ruin the circuit but if like many collectors these days you’re keeping your watches off of water you'll be fine.
To sum it up:
I will only buy “expensive” quartz watches made in a quality components to “last a lifetime”. These include Grand Seiko etc that uses quality components.
Cartier in some models uses cheap quartz components, would not touch them unless I buy it as a fun watch to work as long as it works, in other models they uses a slightly better one, still IMO its a cheap quartz watch with higher price tag.
