High-end quartz movements are really MUCH better than the low end ones. The extreme precision of the quartz is really amazing.

Also, consider that movement in your highly engineered automatic Omega costs under $150. I believe the base ETA 2892A2 goes for around $75 without the Omega modifications.

So when you buy a $1,000 and up (mostly up) Omega, you are buying a lot of other attributes (style, case, bracelet, name, warranty, durability) besides simply whichever movement technology you choose.
