so? who cares if it keeps better time?
are you going to buy a car just because its the best performing or the fastest?
then why so many more thousands of people buy entry level BMW 3 series or Audi A4s at $35000 instead of mitsubishi evolutions and subaru STi's?
everyone knows that an EVO would smoke an audi a4 2.0T, but why not many people buy those cars?
then you must understand why people all around the world spend so mamy billion dollars every year on wrist watches - its because no one cares if its the most accurate.
just like when people buy a nice car they dont just go for a GTR or an EVO. they buy a ferrari or a lamborghini, or a Porsche - knowing the fact that a GTR costs less and performs better.
and that is the same way watch people look at quartz - it sucks, its not a real watch.
