The same could be said of the more mechanicals you have the more servicing they will need, now that will get expensive!! I said in another thread that i can't understand why people say that it's such a hassle to get a 10 minute $10 battery swap every 4 years but have no problems getting an expensive service which could take months!!Interesting comments, thanks for your participation. The only downside is the more quartz you have, the more batteries will have to be replaced. IIRC, in our area the cost of replacing a battery is about $10. That could get expensive. Alpina's quartz models have a battery life of 4 years, which is not too bad. I would still like to get thoughts/impressions from the rest of the group.
ps the startimer your talking about is one i would love to get someday the grey dial and beige numerals look amazing
