Can a quartz watch ever become a 'classic'?

I was surprised to find that Seiko produced this 7830-8020 quartz watch in 1977 at only 6.5mm thick over the crystal, when just about every other quartz watch at the time was twice as thick....c7ojmCa.jpg

This connaisseur has the Lassale movement and is about 4mm thick.

This is a different movement, I have a couple, one on original leather with box and tags.

My dad gave it to me in 1991 along with a BMW 635csi when I went to uni in Leeds in 1991...the car is long since dead. The Omega? Needs a new crown stem and service. 

If they are not classic quartz martin...i'll buy a casio.

Very true Martin. I cant believe i treated it so badly when i was 19. It is much worse than it looks in the pic. 

After I bought another old Omega Mum said hang on ive still got your old one somewhere. Its been in a drawer at my grans old house for years. Id forgotten all about it. Put a battery in it and off it went. Which means ive now got 2 of these...

The top one is fab. And the last one is me and my old zenith. Thats my thumb. 

For the life in me i cant remember the model. Its one I sent to you a bit back @martinzx. Espada??? I think my brain is wearing out.

I only collect vintage mechanical watches. A mentor told me years ago, 'stay away from quartz'. 

But there is one quartz watch I think is very worthy of keeping and I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned here.

It was made famous for being worn by Sigourney Weaver's character, Ripley in the movie Aliens. The watch is the Seiko Seiko 7A28-7000, (Giugiaro).

I think its a very cool design. The first photo is mine but sadly, the watch belongs to a friend.
