Hello watch lovers,

Just wondering which to get, a 7s26 automatic watch or somewhere near (not gonna serviced it) or normal quartz watch (swatch, casio, etc). both watch at around $100, which one you think will last longer? normal quartz or unserviced cheap movement? it will be daily office use, not for sports or etc.

Your question has no answer. Both quartz and mech can last for decades. Through 30 years both quartz and mechs had their issues. Quartzes needed repairing after 15 years and mechs needed to be serviced after 10 years or more.
Personally i wouldn't trust any person that has a very biased opinion about this.
