Vintage Mallard Quartz

Would you look at that? Another Mallard. Of course this one is quartz and probably from the early 1980s. It's actually not that bad looking, and I'm not usually a big fan of two-tone watches, but the stainless case here along with the gold accents and subtly linen-textured dial works pretty well. Not to say it literally works as I haven't gotten around to putting a battery in it. Not sure if I expect it to work or not, probably leaning towards not. I'm sure when it was new it kept better time than most of my mechanical watches, but my dislike of quartz watches is anything but a rational one.

I thought I was the only one who had a quartz aversion...I'll wear my beat up Gruen rather than my dressed up Fossil anyday :)
