I like a variety for different reasons

Plain digital quartz G-Shock DW5600. Cheap and tough.



And the other G-Shock extreme, the MTG-G1000 GPS hybrid wave ceptor with all the features...GPS, radio controlled, solar powered.



Citizen Excalibur, or any Eco-Drive



Timex Weekender Chronograph. Really good value, and doesn't suffer the loud tick of 3-hand Weekenders



Certina DS2 Precidrive. Cool movement. Same with the DS8.



Seiko perpetual calendar



I currently only have this Curv Chronograph, but any of the UHF movement watches are nice.

I've been testing out a two categories of quartz approach to compliment my daily automatic - a tough no nonsense watch and a fun quirky watch - I don't have pics - stock picks instead:

GShock Mudman - In my opinion a Gshock is the ultimate back up, heck, ultimate every day if you want it to be.

I squiggle lines for things with doors and windows for a living and I'm an admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright's work, so my other quartz is a fun piece for occasional wear by Bulova:

I'm a bigger space nerd than architecture nerd, so I concur with the Bulova moon watch suggestions. I had one but just couldn't get on with it. The width was OK, but it it just seemed awkward on my wrist. I keep looking at it as a re-buy but then remind myself I didn't like how it wore.

The Alpina (Alpiner) Swiss Quarts 10mm x 41.5mm blue dial is on par with an Omega in looks but my standby quartz are the newer G800 anadigi G-Shocks - thinner and smaller at 42mm.

Any G-Shock square

And IMO it would be a gross oversight for any affordable collection to lack a Casio AE-1200WH aka Casio Royale: (not my photo)



I love every aspect of that watch and it was $11 at Walmart. The size is perfect, retro vibes, sweet orange backlight, world time, alarms, extremely legible, lightweight. Dollar for dollar it has to be my favorite value watch of all time.

No such thing as a 'must-have' quartz watch (or even a 'must-have' watch!), IMO.

I have a few, but most rarely get worn, primarily because they ARE quartz - I find I'll put on a mechanical watch to 'give it a run', the quartz ones are always running, so rarely get worn.

Come the Zombie Apocalypse (What? This isn't it?), I'll stick to a mechanical watch, even the solar watches capacitors have a finite life.

Probably my Helson Sharkmaster 600 - I can use it as a club if need be!
