Wow -- I just realized that I have started buying quart watches. I have to admit that for years I wore nothing but quartz, and while I had a couple of automatic watches, I rarely wore them because setting the time and date each time I wanted to wear them was mildly annoying.


Then I had an epiphany and crashed into my automatic period, where all my quartz watch batteries died because I never took them out of the box.


While I am still in that period of quartz denial, and actually enjoy the ritual of setting my automatics, (I rarely wear the same watch twice in a row unless I am travelling), I have found that on occasion I do buy quartz watches because of the superb brands from which they issue.


This Chopard Imperiale is one of those. I did conduct a very scientific poll by asking three of the women at work which they prefer:  quartz watches or automatics. It was unanimous that quartz won out, so I have no apologies to render when I buy quartz watches. Especially those that are as special as this Chopard.  Quietly classy.
