It's not the ticking that got me. It's the damn zzZZZ noise of the automatic swinging endlessly around the inside of the watch. It sounded unnatural and weird. I had people ask me wtf the noise was like we were being haunted. After it got brought up a few times I just stopped wearing it.
If it weren't for that, I would wholeheartedly agree with you. I have no qualms sacrificing quality of function if the aesthetics are there. But when people think they're starting to go crazy because they're hearing my watch zip around.. I think that's where I draw the line.
