Some quartz clocks are already becoming collectable and sought for,
especially those that have achieved a particular "cult status".
In Germany, for instance, the Braun alarm clocks of the 1970s, 1980s have
become very popular again, because they do run for ages.
People have by now slowly realized, that "cheap" doesn't always mean a "bargain"
and that quality does have a certain price tag.
I have three of these for every day use.
