I like this. But I think I am also in the minority of people on SF who prefer quartz watches. Unless you have only one watch that you wear, automatics just seem kind of silly since quartz watches are far more accurate, provide more design options, are pretty much shock proof, and run for years without intervention. I'm not going to get a winder...because that seems equally silly. Can't deny the coolness of completely mechanical watches with several complications though...(but I can't deny the coolness of vacuum tubes either and you don't see me using them in my TV).
I think I even prefer manual watches since they can be so much slimmer and its not hard to remember to keep them wound (and if you own more than 2 watches, you are probably going to have to reset it every time you wear it just like an automatic).
