    However, when something is cheaper, better, and has no significant advantage other than being some cultural shit-piece, than you are doing nothing but wasting time and money with these watches by refusing to use the better ones.

Cultural shit-piece? You know what most people would call smartwatches...? I even said I own quartz watches in my comment you respond with "by refusing to use better ones". You either didn't read my comment, or chose to ignore that part.

I was just trying to explain why I and many others love and collect mechanical watches. I wasn't trying to force you to buy any. You completely ignored my comment and just said "buy a quartz watch it's better", yet then go on to say you own a smartwatch? What do those do that your cellphone doesn't already do? You say you bought it for function, but I bet there's a part of you that wouldn't admit it here that enjoys it for it's aesthetics, and the image it presents to others. Otherwise I could say the same to you; Why didn't you just buy a cheap Timex quartz watch?

Look, we both wear watches, just different kinds and for different reasons. Why you chose to shit all over someone elses choices I don't know, but it's kind of smug and shitty. Your comment reminds me of being on Reddit. The type of people that Hubski allows me to easily avoid. :)
