A mechanical watch is certainly more complex and complicated than a quartz watch. However, the mechanical movements can be fascinating to look at and some luxury watch brands choose to feature their mechanics through the dial as part of the watch design, such as Jaeger-LeCoultre. This is one of the reasons that mechanical watches remain so popular. For example, Rolex only produces mechanical watches even though quartz watches have proven to be more accurate at time-keeping.
