Neither do I care. I own a quartz Omega Seamaster myself. It's my favourite watch, in fact. But, even tongue in cheek, it's not a poor man's watch. It's all relative. The fact that a quartz Seamaster will be nearly zero-maintenance is icing on the cake, as "poor men" don't tend to have the money to send it to Omega for an overhaul every few years. If $800 or so is too much then I'd find a good Hamilton or Seiko. Those are nice poor man's watches.
