Quartz movements are considerably less expensive than their automatic mechanical counterparts, however they typically offer excellent precision and reliability, and they have minimal maintenance requirements.
The Lonegrade HDR140 has a minimalist design atheistic that exudes elegance and hints at a price tag far above the price of $249 USD. The brand name is left off the main dial face but included subtly in the top band of second/minute markings, with “Swiss Movement” along the bottom.
The hour, minute, and second hands of the HDR140 are a little different than usual, the second and minute hands are traditional ticking metallic arms, but the hour hand is actually a rotating disc that turns inside the main face of the watch with a marking to show the time.
