2018 has been my year of quartz ... started a grab & go hunt in Jan-Feb, trying to get off my addiction to Timex ... FWIW, I purposely avoided Seiko, Citizen, and Casio. They obviously make great watches, but I wanted to discover some new brands that I didn't know before ...

The winner is the Gavox Aurora w/a Soprod-A SOP 716 twin-motion quartz ‘mecatronic' movement ... perpetual date, chrono, timer, UTC, moon phase, spreadsheet program.

Sampled everything from Bertucci and their unnamed "all metal Japanese" quartz (Miyota?) to the Techne Hummingbird's Seiko VH31 ...

Was looking for some chronos for the start of my kids' track season ... they run the 400m and 800m races and I really wanted to find a stopwatch timer like the 6138/39 or the Chronostop ... and discovered DH. What a fabulous brand!

Also discovered the HAQ forum and found myself a Certina DS-2 Precidrive. It had a bit too much wrist presence and went into the box and hasn't moved much, except to check its accuracy. I ended up getting a Certina DS First (can't find a pic!), a somewhat simpler sports chrono. So I'm gonna flip the HAQ and keeping the First ... but the HAQ is amazing and after nearly 3 months, is -4 seconds.

Didn't realize Gavox and Techne were sister companies. Love this Harrier w/a Miyota quartz. Not a keeper, but I got the automatic version for my brother for his birthday later this month, but I really like it so I might have to get another one for my brother ...

I'm keeping the Gavox Aurora, the Certina DS First, and a Bertucci. I've licked the Timex addiction, and I'm selling off most of them, but will always be a fan, especially the IQ Yacht Racer which will always be my favorite.

All my watches except a Seiko Diver's are quartz watches, several are solar powered and one is a Link watch (links to iPhone).
The above is my Hamilton Khaki quartz. I love quartz because they are highly accurate.
